FEM (Female Electronic Musician) Records is a new record label focusing exclusively on female artists, composers and producers. In the highly male-dominated world of electronic music the female perspective is an almost entirely overlooked segment of the community. The mission of FEM Records is to raise public awareness with respect to the wide range of talented women working in electronic music today. The label features several passionately creative artists from around the world working in a variety of styles, all under the umbrellaof instrumental electronic music.
Aiming to be a global presence, FEM Records offers the beautifully melancholic atmospheres of klyxn
(Frankfurt, Germany), the danceable electro-pulse of PSGirl
(Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain) and Fear Of Symmetry
(Belgrade, Serbia) who produces tracks ranging from dancefloor electro to Avant-garde experiments. Heading even deeper into eastern Europe we have Kiev's premier electronic composer Zavoloka
, one of the most well known electronic artists from the Ukraine.
The label represents a full spectrum of American artists including the haunting soundscapes of Deform
(New York City), cutting edge sonic experiments from Margaret Nobl
e(San Diego), dark, futuristic sounds of Eden Grey
(Miami), cross-genre industrial explorations from Sadore
(Los Angeles), as well as the rhythmically complex and trippy productions of Jezika
The first compilation CD from FEM Records is now available featuring one track from each artist on the label. All profits from the sale of this release will be donated to the Expanding Your Horizons Network- a non-profit organization who's mission is to encourage young women to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers. The release features eight tracks of instrumental electronic music covering the spectrum of IDM, down-tempo, electro, glitch, ambient and more.
