This week on the Block Out Sunday Show we have the pleasure of Dovetail on the decks providing a 1 Hour mix!
Based in Portsmouth, UK, Sam Warren aka Dovetail loves to combine quirky melodic beats with fat funky basslines that reflect her passionate sense of fun, wonder and beauty in life. An advocate of ‘artisan techno’ from DIY producers – especially women and those from gender minorities – behind the decks she’s known for her infectious energy and has recently started releasing her own productions. Her mix today features a couple of those tracks and is a deeper, techy-but-funky Sunday afternoon roll through her music crates.
Off the decks she’s a Professor in Organization Studies at the University of Portsmouth and the driving force behind research project and platform “In the Key of She”. 95-98% of the electronic music in charts, mixes, and to buy on platforms is made by men and Sam’s on a mission to find out how we can even things out. She produces a monthly radio show of the same name on Threads Radio, interviewing female producers about their careers, and showcasing their music, in collaboration with Sisu, a DJ collective for women based in London and Berlin, for whom she’s also a Core Team DJ.
