‘Lady of the House’ book is so much more than just women in the scene, it’s about women being creative and doing what they love to do. In a time where so much change is happening and many inequalities are being brought to light, we want to ensure the legacy of women’s power is passed down to future generations.
The book contains beautiful images and interviews with women who have contributed, and continue to contribute, to make the house music scene. The book includes interviews with DJs, Producers, Artists, Promoters and Management. Our first five interviews came from Candi Staton, Barbara Tucker, Sam Divine, Maxinne and Kym Mazelle. The book has continued to grow over the last year, taking us to places we could only have dreamt of with contributions from so many influential people in house music. From those who were there in the beginning up to present-day advocates who help to keep the scene alive, thriving and constantly evolving.
The foreword for Lady of the House is written by Carl Cox, the nicest man in dance who showed his admiration and recognition of the powerhouse that is the women in music, by presenting the foreword for the book.
After exceeding the £25,000 target via a fundraising campaign to publish Lady of the House we couldn’t wait to share this with the world. It’s a book that has been waiting to happen. During the campaign we secured sponsorship from several key industry players who want to work towards levelling the playing field: Focusrite, Bristol Beacon, Lakota, Switch, Halo, Orange Rooms, TANK, Mas Vida and Defected Records, Resident Advisor & Insanity Group.
