There's been a lot of media chat lately about women producers. But it all centred around the women who drive the desk and take control of the final sound direction of albums created by other people, but what about women who are visibly producing their own tracks and standing at the decks? Surely they're taking on more than one role and deserve a shout.
Looking back over Free Lab Radio playlists from the past three years, it is mostly men who've their names attached to the tracks we've loved. So we've put the effort in (it is not easy at first to remember or unearth good women producers, because normally you don't have it in mind whether the musics coming from a man or woman, but this time we've put our minds to it) and also must thank Free Lab Radio Facebook followers who've suggested/reminded us of a few of tonight's playlist.
