Ministry Of Sound has announced a new club night – He.She.They – aiming to promote inclusivity. This follows accusations recently that dance music has become somewhat masculine.

Launching this Saturday in partnership with promoter LWE, organisers say: “Can you remember when dance music culture was all about breaking down barriers, rather than building them? When it didn’t matter who you were just as long as you were friendly and you could be yourself? Well we feel it’s high time to return to those inclusive, ideological roots. From DJs to performers, we’re about giving those who push boundaries a platform, and we invite our partygoers to push their own boundaries”.

They add: “We want to create a sanctuary; a place without prejudice; where people can be people. To create a utopia where people feel they belong whilst expressing their utmost individuality. Where they can spread their creative wings and relinquish the shackles imposed by society, irrespective of age, race, sex, gender, ability, religion, background or their sexual preference. It’s a really simple ethos: have a good time whilst being respectful to others. If you bring a bad attitude, if your intolerances come to the surface, you will not be welcomed”.

Headlining the first event is Maya Jane Coles. Also on the bill are Ellen Allien, Satoshi Tomie, KDA, Sratcha DVA, DJ Barely Legal and more. More info here.
