2012 was a significant year for blasting the “male electro musician” typecast. Throughout the years, I have heard a bevy of male-dominated electronic music, and from what I can make of these past twelve months, women have undeniably entered the electro genre — and they are diminishing this stereotype with full force.
Coming from all corners of the world, these synth-empowered females have been welcoming interest and praise from magazines and music blogs across the board — and let me say, the attention is well deserved. They don’t hide behind their swarms of synth; these women can actually sing. Some have attained academic training in their craft while their counterparts are self-taught, but each artist carries a distinct sound that is disarmingly beautiful and cannot be contained.
We’ve watched 2012 fall under the female charm; this compilation goes out to the female exponents of cutting-edge electronica. Enjoy.
