Marry Klein Kulturdonnerstag: Marry Klein Global | Day 6
Interview partners Red Pig Flower (South Korea) Jackie Queens (South Africa) Lauren Mia (Los Angeles) Ksenia Kamikaza (Georgia) Music: Catenation / Sylvia Hinz & Jeanne Comateuse Visuals: Catenation Electronic dance music stands for one thing above all: diversity. Even so, female DJs still struggle to be seen and heard these days. If you take a look at the line-ups of the well-known clubs, festivals and party series, you quickly notice that the majority of DJs are male. The study: “Facts Survey 2020” by the feminist network “female: pressure” shows that around 70.5% of the appearances at festivals worldwide from 2017 to 2019 were occupied by men. The occupation of female artists, on the other hand, was only 20.5%. Why is there still such a noticeable gender discrepancy in the electronic party scene and are there ways to resolve this mismatch in the near future? In this edition of Culture Thursday we're going global and putting the spotlight on female DJs in the electronic scene. The Marry Klein, moderated by DJ Kimswim, invites four internationally known female DJs to an interview in order to talk to them about their work and personal experiences in such a male-dominated industry. Our guests will tune in live from South Korea, South Africa, Georgia and California. The broadcast will accordingly take place in English. Guests are: Red Pig Flower is a Korean-Japanese DJ, live act, label owner, producer and visual artist based in Berlin and London. She began her musical journey in Asia, initially as a member of a live band, but soon found her true ethos and personal sound in electronic music. Today she is one of the respected figures in Berlin's underground electro scene. Jackie Queens is a South Africa based DJ, producer, songwriter and writer. With projects like GIRLS or #womenofhouse, she offers artists who are often invisible a platform. Lauren Mia is a Los Angeles-based pianist, composer, DJ, songwriter, singer and producer who has made a name for herself in the genre of progressive house and melodic techno. With her healing, orchestral and progressive sounds she tries to connect people with themselves and with those around them. Ksenia Kamikaza is a Tbilisi-based DJ, producer, founder of the “Platz für Tanz” label and “UNDER” festival in Riga. As a full-time DJ and promoter, she produces her own music and emphasizes that it is not about techno or electronica, but about her own search for the sound of the inner rave.
