A New Year….A New Start

For those of you who know me well and /or understand what this site is about, you will be aware that I believe in collaboration, support, and co-operation to try and shine a spotlight on those ‘electronic’ artists from many genres, who just happen to identify as female.

This is a personal journey that I began 6 years ago and increasingly have found that I cannot cover everything, especially as I am an artist myself and have my own projects to create and finish.

Feminatronic is on many platforms. Although I do not have a public contact link here ( for particular reasons), I am contactable via social media and it has been a pleasure to receive messages out of the blue from artists, labels and reviewers, as well as messages of support. I have made clear from the start it is not about me as an individual. The name suggests the subject and although centred around female identifying artists is NOT exclusive and / or divisive, which is against the ethos of the site and me personally.

By the methods of RT and reblogging (by means of the WordPress mechanisms), I have been able to make a small contribution to getting some focus on what is in fact only a tiny proportion of the many female artists, from all genres of electronic music, creating art out there. I am a tiny cog in the wheel of progress, which I have seen over the past years.

This site is a portal where you can click through to the original site / articles and I have had the honour to reblog many articles and reviews from respected writers via their own sites for many years. In doing this I discover and learn so much about a subject dear to my heart, find new artists and listen to their work, as well as enjoy reading the varied viewpoints and thoughts of writers.

The ultimate aim is to enable visitors to go on their own journey’s of discovery, like I have been doing these past years, as you never know what you will find and listen to from one day to the next. Hopefully, by doing this, lesser known artists also get some focus and maybe you will listen to more of their music and even buy it and thereby support artists in a concrete way.

I am not going to go into detail what sparked this post but it has given me a chance to take stock and maybe rethink how I may do things in the future. Watch this space.

What I do know is that I will be continuing here, at least for the present, in some way.

Thank you for reading this and supporting the concept of Feminatronic.

I wish you all the best for 2019, whoever and wherever you are.

Hiatus

As some of you may know, I am an electronic artist myself and sometimes I need some time to create things. It’s been a bit quiet here, I know, and my presence elsewhere has been pared back a little as I try to work on some music.

I will be posting but not as much, although I am trying to maintain the playlists, Twitter feed, Facebook and Instagram as best I can.

In the meantime, here’s some Furchick that made me smile today –

Update May 2016

Dear Reader,

Unaccustomed as I am to public writing I thought I’d better let you know that things have been a little slow here due to the call of the studio but some of the older usual’s will be back soon such as adding to the Artists pages that are becoming huge, Soundcloud Spotlight, Todays Discovery and Web focus.

Just as a reminder there are loads of things going on and I can’t keep up with it all so I suggest you have a look at some of the links sites – Feminatronic is just a tiny cog in the aim to raise awareness of artists who just happen to be women.

Also please visit the Twitter (@Feminatronic) feed and Facebook pages as there’s loads there too and connect if you like : )

NEWS FROM THE TWITTERSPHERE
