Do As You Please Celebrate International Women's Day With All Day Mix Series
Our good friends over at Do As You Please are celebrating International Women's Day virtually, showcasing 8 mixes over 12 hours this Saturday (March 6th) from some of the best up-and-coming DJs in the UK, including: Tañ (Rinse FM, Ransom Note & Lobster Theremin), Kloyd (BBC introducing, Radio 1 & Universal Production Music) & Tht Grl (Not Bad For a Girl).
March 8th marks the 110th annual International Women’s Day celebration. Considering the growth and progress the world has made since this time, the music scene has still yet to inspire and represent women equally across the industry. This is displayed time and time again, despite the vast quantity of extraordinary female talent, the music industry remains incredibly male-dominated. Dance music is no exception. In 2019 only 5% of DJ Mag top 100 DJs were female (Whiteley electronicbeats.net, 2020). This isn’t only archaic, it’s rude. Inclusivity, equality and diversity is paramount to the ethos of Do As You Please (DAYP), a northern-based label, online record store and mix series, celebrating local up and coming artists across the musical spectrum.
To combat this long standing lack of representation, the brand will be showcasing 8 mixes over 12 hours from some of the best budding female talent the UK has to offer. On Saturday March 6th 11am-11pm, DAYP will be joined by Leeds based, Spin City co-founder Tañ (Rinse FM, Ransom Note & Lobster Theremin), London’s Kloyd (BBC introducing, Radio 1 & Universal Production Music) & Emma Rose (Pie Radio). Additionally the line up boasts an eye watering array of up and coming DJs including Norfn Gyal (Prescribe the Vibe), ThtGrl (Not Bad For A Girl), Aletha (NTS & High Hoops), Saachi (1020 Bristol, Girls Need Music & Selectorhood), Giles (Distrikt Leeds). Do As You Please founder, Niall Roche has said: “At Do As You Please we have a strong outlook on artist development and proper impartial opportunities within the music industry. We’re only a relatively new business but it’s become blatant that there is massive gender inequality within dance music and I’d like to find and support this generation’s female talent; so that the next generation have role models to look up to.
