Disclaimer: I know how complacent it seems for a white middle-class cishet dude to advertise a mix like this. I wouldn’t point out that my all-male mixes – of which there exist plenty – exclusively feature dude. However, I am also tired of the general notion of there being »statistically speaking« less women* or trans* people out there, as if that would explain male-dominated line-ups and panel discussions. My intent thus was to create a stylistically diverse mix and direct your attention to the people behind that music. I do believe that bringing visibility to women* and trans* people is a means to end when it comes to gender equality. My contribution to this with this mix alone is not enough, but simply creating this mix was a reminder to myself that I, too, do not challenge the status quo as often and as efficiently as I think I should. And by the way, it was incredibly easy to find all those pieces in my record collection – the real problem was limiting myself to only an hour of music.
