Highly respected electronic artists Sydney Blu and Rebekah with the support of LP Giobbi, Femme House, Ableton Live, Native Instruments, DJ Minx, and Baby Weight are launching a new initiative, calling on labels to commit to increasing the number of female, trans, non-binary and minority artists on their rosters. 

Record labels Toolroom Records, Club Sweat, Gorgon City’s Realm Records, Soma Records, Desert Hearts, Walker and Royce’s Rules Don’t Apply, and more to be announced will be supporting the initiative with remix competitions and demo challenges on the Metapop community powered by Native Instruments starting December 11/12 and will run throughout 2022. 

Sydney Blu chats Equality for Female, Trans, Non-Binary and Minoroties in the Music Industry

In this interview, I chatted to Canadian producer and DJ, Sydney Blu about her 23by23 campaign which is fighting for equality for the Female, Trans & Non-Binary communities within the Dance Music Industry. She chats about how labels can proactively make changes to support these communities which will ultimately change the way that lineups are organised shifting the balance in the industry. She also chats about her album, releases and plenty of production tips too!

Making proactive, sustainable changes to a label landscape that has been male-dominated for years will resonate with people, especially resonate with female producers. You cannot be what you can not see, and labels have the power to inspire an entirely new generation of female producers and artists.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
