Bromance Records has closed its doors once and for all.
The Paris-based imprint, run by Brodinski and Manu Barron, has shut up shop this week, just months after celebrating the label's fifth anniversary with two back-to-back shows.
"We've been here together for five years, delivered about fifty releases, organized more than 300 parties, festivals and other events," the label wrote via SoundCloud.
"Oh, I’ve done a lot of very different stuff,” LOUISAHHH!!! grins at DJ Mag across a backstage corridor. “I’m a certified cycling instructor, for example,” she laughs. “Oh, and I can train horses, that too.” She laughs again, even harder. “Basically, I have a really bizarre skill-set that’s only useful in a very specific context!”
Whether we like to admit it or not, sexism is an ongoing theme in dance music’s history.
Even a cursory glance at the stats reveals that women have been traditionally under- represented in almost every faction of the industry — in short, the numbers don’t lie. With this in mind, DJ Mag thought it high time to open the issue up to the floor, and revive the discussion about women in dance music in the print media.
We are loving Louisahhh!!!’s new EP, Shadow Work. And how could we not? With its Jungian spoken word, compact beats, and psychotropic vibe, the Bromance records doyenne’s techno is like her iconic eyeshadow — dark, savage, and on-point.
