More than a research project

On these pages you’ll find everything you need to know about life as a woman producing and performing electronic music. The latest statistics, thought leadership, industry articles, documentaries, expert podcasts, and publications are all here, along with the most comprehensive, multi-genre directory of female electronic music producers anywhere in the world.

In the Key of She (ItKoS) started life as Professor Samantha Warren’s ‘Leverhulme Trust Fellowship’: an academic research project to explore the career experiences of women on the technical side of electronic music production. Seriously under-represented, women make up only 2-5% of music producers, and DJ line-ups in the world’s clubs and festivals are still male dominated. If we are serious about helping more girls and women get into tech-heavy creative industries, investigating the electronic music industry is a good place to start. 

Through its radio show and socials, ItKoS has now grown into a well-respected platform for raising the visibility of women electronic artists, and championing diversity in the electronic music industry more broadly. The research findings have appeared in some of the industry’s leading publications and informed policy at the Association for Electronic Music.
