About Feminatronic

I am an electronic musician who, as someone recently said to me, set up Feminatronic to act as "soft PR" for female electronic artists from all genres and styles. If I can give a little helping hand then why not?

Focus – A Closer Listen – The women of pan y rosa discos

 

This warms my heart. –
” The percentage of women on the pan y rosa discos label is equal to the percentage of women in the world. This makes the label a true find: their dedication is impeccable, their selection superb. Stay tuned as the next release is never far away.”

 

a closer listen

Many labels make an effort to raise the profile of female electronic musicians, but pan y rosa discos goes all out.  Of their fifteen releases so far this year, eight are by women.  Their music demonstrates an incredible variety of styles and is drawn from a wide variety of countries.  Incredibly, all of the downloads are free!  Our respect for label head Keith Helt continues unabated as quality music comes our way multiple times each month.

When listening to the first few seconds of attractive synthesis by Latvia’s Līga Smirnova, one thinks, “oh, it’s just another club-based synth track.”  But listen just a little longer, and all preconceptions will be destroyed.  The five-part piece eradicates all traces of club culture on its way to becoming a thick, drone-based suite.  Part two alone begins like a cyclone and ends like a forest fire.  By the fourth segment, the cycle has…

“Lena Platonos is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. She was one of the pioneers in the Greek electronic music scene of the 1980s, and she remains active today. Lena was born on the island of Crete and grew up in Athens. She began learning how to play the piano at the age of two and became a professional pianist before turning eighteen. Soon afterwards, she received a scholarship to study in Vienna and Berlin, where she was exposed to jazz, rock, and Middle Eastern music. She returned to Greece in the late 70’s and began working with the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. She released three collaborative albums between 1981 and 1983, but it was her “triptych” of solo albums, Sun Masks (1984), Gallop (1985), and Lepidoptera (1986) that would lead many to call her the “Greek Laurie Anderson” or “mother of Greek electronica”.
