Berlin-based record label RAIDERS [organisers pictured] has announced the forthcoming release of a two-part compilation ‘Queens Of Club’. The first part, ‘Astral Booty’, releases on October 25, and ‘Night Shift’, the second part, releases a week later on November 1.
The name ‘Queens Of Club’ is a homage to DJ Technics’ 2001 compilation ‘Queens of Baltimore Club’.
The compilations are entirely produced, mixed and mastered by women and non-binary people. They are intended to platform artists marginalised by the music industry mainstream; by virtue of how they’ve gone about creating the compilation, it also provides a helpful precedent for labels, artists and industry executives going forwards.

As the press release indicates, the compilations are ‘intended for everyone and anyone who likes to shake their ass at high speed’. The upcoming ‘Astral Booty’ features contributions from Morphena, Sarah Farina and Coca Cobra.
