In the last two years, only 7% of Billboard’s Top 100 DJ list were female. Underplayed explores gender inequality through the lens of the electronic music scene and the women championing the change over the summer festival season.
Electronic music was born from the ideals of diversity, community, and inclusivity; yet in the last two years only 7% of Billboard’s Top 100 DJs were women. Filmed over the summer festival season, Underplayed presents a portrait of the current status of the gender, ethnic, and sexual equality issues through the lens of the female pioneers, next-generation artists, and industry leaders who are championing the change, and inspiring a more diverse pool of role models for future generations. Ultimately, the film explores how gender disparity happens; a theme that transcends music and finds relevance in many of today’s industries.
Features talent from Alison Wonderland and Brooklyn’s own Tygapaw, to TOKiMONSTA and Mark Ronson.
