There’s no shortage of content that reports on the rise of musical groups or individual performers. But what about the organisations that support them along the way? In response, we created a mini-documentary series called ‘Hear It?’ where we will focus on a few record labels in Berlin. Each one has had significant impacts on the electronic music scene and experienced huge growth within the past decade. Our first episode features Mobilee Records.
Throughout telling us about her on-going career as an electronic music producer and sound artist, Antye Greie-Ripatti made us laugh. Her charm made that part easy, and even though the topic of conversation was the dire state of the gender ratio in the field, it wasn’t much of an obstacle for her optimism. The unequal conditions are obvious within our walls here at dBs Berlin too; the boys outnumber the girls. But on the panel of our first ever dBs Dialogues series the ratio was reversed, while numbers in the audience appeared to be balanced.
