It’s International Women’s Day and there’s no better way to celebrate women in music than with a massive playlist dedicated to the queens among us.
With a swarm of “Happy International Women’s Day” posts overwhelming our feeds today (in the best possible way), the goal here was to have something to add to the conversation and bring attention to as many female/femme-identifying artists we could in a single afternoon.
Our playlist represents women in electronic/dance music — DJs, producers, singers and songwriters across various styles and genres. These creatives have pushed boundaries and taken risks, blazing an empowering path for women everywhere to express themselves fearlessly, and we’re forever grateful.
Many of the names on this playlist are instantly recognizable — Alison Wonderland, Nervo, Charlotte de Witte, SOPHIE, Anna Lunoe, REZZ, Mija, Whipped Cream, UNIIQU3, Nora en Pure, TOKiMONSTA, CloZee and the list goes on. And we spent just as much time adding next up artists including JEANIE, Rossy, Nostalgix, Risik, Lizzy Jane, and so many more — as well as those who are just starting to make names for themselves.
To include all the inspirational and influential women in dance music is near impossible, but here’s a start. Let us know who we missed and we’ll be sure to add them, because everyday should be Women’s Day.
