In this edition of The Weekly Mix, your overnight princess of darkness, Abbie, brings you a mix inspired by a new documentary, Underplayed, directed by Stacey Lee. Underplayed presents a portrait of the current status of the gender, ethnic and sexual equality issues in electronic music through the lens of the female pioneers, next-generation artists, and industry leaders who are championing the change and inspiring a more diverse pool of role models for future generations. 

  • In 2019, only 5 of the top 100 DJs were women. 
  • In the top 150 clubs, the annual percentage of female DJs is 6% (Djane Magazine)
  • Women make up less than 3% of technical and production roles in the music industry. (Annenberg Institute)

These facts show that there desperately needs to be more visibility for women, trans, and non-binary artists in electronic music. This podcast only provides a sampling of women in electronic music currently breaking down genres to create futuristic folk music, house music to heal you on the dancefloor, grimy Mandopop from the Taipei underground, the Jersey Club Movement, and hardcore euphoric techno.
