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.

For The Beatriarchy’s September show, we have two brilliant London selectors stepping up to the mark! First up is Midori, with an all vinyl mix of deeper introspective tracks he loves, that speak to the heart. We were very grateful to meet him at our panel event at The Halley a few months back and super psyched to have him on the show! Then switching things up, we have Rodney, an east laadan based DJ and lover of all high speed turbo NRGYYY tunes. Their sets are an exploration of all higher tempo genres – footwork to hardcore, jungle to donk. This mix is a heavy bag of bassy, breaksy, ravey, wobbly, percussive bangers on bangers on bangers and mash!
