Canadian DJ and producer Simon Doty announces his debut album ‘Universal Language’. The ten-track LP will be released on Anjunadeep on the 28th of April 2023, with the first single ‘Soulflow’ (feat. Ursula Rucker) out today.

‘Soulflow’ sees Simon collaborate with American spoken word artist Ursula Rucker, whose thought-provoking vocals can be heard on tracks with artists including Dusky, Marquis Hawkes and Josh Wink. Combining Ursula’s vocals with stabbing chords and a driving bassline, Simon perfectly epitomises his timeless house sound that has previously earned him support from Adam Beyer, Adriatique, Gorgon City and Hot Since 82, among others.

A firm favourite among fans of the label, Simon first debuted on Anjunadeep in 2019 with his track ‘Sama’ and has since put out five stand out EPs on the label, including ‘Hometown EP’, his ‘Living Sound EP’ and most recently, his collaborative cut ‘Touch The Sky’ with Marsh, which have collectively amassed over 3 million streams and support from the likes of Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Gorgon City and Ben Malone.

Crafted for the dancefloor, Simon’s debut album ‘Universal Language’ gives the audience a chance to listen to a range of musical styles that they can expect to hear Simon play during one of his DJ sets, ranging from house to deep house to melodic techno.

“We’re starting to lose the groove in underground dance music. This album is partly about showing people that club music can still be melodic and emotional.” – Simon Doty

The album features a range of collaborations including American spoken word artist Ursula Rucker, british duo My Friend, singer / songwriter Tailor, UK-based producer and vocalist Artche, british songstress Ruth Royall and legendary American vocalist Roland Clark as well as a remix of JODA’s hit track ‘Closer’ (feat. Robyn Sherwell).

In support of his upcoming album, Simon has recently announced phase one of his ‘Universal Language’ tour. Featuring over 30 dates, the tour kicks off in February in North and South America, before moving over to Europe and Asia. More dates will be announced later this year.

Release date: 24th January 2023

The Current Status of Gender Representation at Music Festivals

Music has been a significant part of the human experience for many centuries. It is an art form that allows individuals to express themselves and build resilience. However, the music industry often undervalues the work of women and gender minorities. The following report examines the current status of gender representation at music festivals worldwide.

Gender diversity in music festivals has increased since the 2012 reporting period. This trend is particularly apparent at publically funded festivals, which have a higher proportion of female acts. In contrast, large festivals tend to have a lower ratio of female acts.

“Acts” include musicians, bands, and visual artists. They also include performers on stage. Some festivals have a diversity, equity, and inclusion committee, which aims to ensure that all members are represented.

The most commonly used instruments for jazz are the piano, saxophone, and drums. Jazz music is characterized by rapid chord changes and quirky melodies.

Music industry activities include production, publishing, distribution, and live performance. These activities are conducted by record labels, booking agencies, and artists. Often, music producers keep unfinished projects for later release, and return to them later.

Gender minorities are underrepresented at both the signing and scholarship levels. Several factors are involved in the creation of this disparity. Cultural norms, white male dominance, and lack of economic power are a few of the primary causes.

The music industry has shown tremendous growth in recent years. This has been driven by the popularity of platforms like Spotify. As a result, physical music sales have declined. Despite this, streaming accounts for a huge percentage of overall music industry revenue in the US.
