Lady of the House the worldwide movement joins forces with LabelWorx & The W Hotel for ADE 22 in continuing its mission to celebrate women in Dance Music. Presenting a carefully crafted line up of stellar talent from across the globe & an exclusive first showcase of Lady of the House Recordings label releases from the four artist winners of the demodrop competition. The winners were selected by the labels A&R Godmother team BBC Radio 1’s Jaguar and Charlie Tee, Defected’s Sam Divine and Brit Dance Act 2022 winner Becky Hill from 350 demos submitted
Lady of the House Recordings– which originated as a book celebrating house music’s pioneering women launched earlier this year with a 6 week long production competition to find the four releases. Women and non-binary artists were encouraged to submit their demos to be in with the chance of releasing their music through the label and receiving a special support package as part of their record release, including a remix of their track by a prominent artist, a professional promotional campaign and the chance to perform at a major event.
That major event is ADE and Lady of the House are proud to work with Labelworx and The W to present the winners (TBA the week before ADE) for the first ever time to the public to perform the winning tracks. Winners will be announced soon along with the release drop.
