The Beatriarchy

The Beatriarchy are a safe, inclusive online community which aims to amplify underrepresented groups such as womxn, LGBTQ+, Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities in the underground electronic music scene.

Run by DJs Kitsta and Gracie T from Manchester and Sheffield respectively, The Beatriarchy was born from Gracie being mansplained to one too many times on white male-dominated tuneshare groups. “We got chatting and agreed that a lot of the online Facebook communities were gatekept and biased towards straight white males. We decided it was time to level the playing field and shine a light on those underrepresented voices, and so we started our own tuneshare group on Facebook, The Beatriarchy. It has now grown into an amazing online community and we’ve just launched our mix and interview series on Foodhall Radio and Soundcloud.”

The Beatriarchy is joined by two sick selectors, MICA @boijork and Nive @nevesthika. Enjoy a joyful 30-minute selection from boyboss MICA. Shifting between sexy acid pump, post-apocalyptic party traxxx, hypnotic vocals loops and 90s pop bangers. Followed by a mix from @alpodrom festival booker and good soul behind many projects in Zürich, Nive. With her Tamil background and her training in Carnatic music, you will hear her fondness for tribal and percussive elements in this powerful set.
