We are a London based event series with residency at The Pickle Factory, and guest parties at The Cause, E1, Electrowerkz, hosting incredible artists such as Wallis, Lady Starlight, Sara Landry and Dana Montana. Future events will also bring Boudica to Europe, with a party at Anomalie in collaboration with Voxnox events at Tank and Link in Bologna and the first Boudica Music Conference to be held in Italy in August.
In 2020 we launched Boudica Music Conference, a day event of educational panels and DJ sets streamed from the Freemasons Hall. The main focus on inspiring more Women and non-binary people to become involved in the music industry by delivering content from professionals they align with. Part of the project are also a radio show with Threads and guest appearances on Rinse France.
This year Boudica launches as a vinyl label. The label is a celebration of the community; platforming trans+, non-binary, female artists and promoting experimentation with genres and sound, which is also reflected in the artworks. A series of portraits of core members of Boudica’s LGBTQIA+ family, represented as modern warrior queer royalties and embodying the power and resilience of this community.
The artists chosen for the VAs perfectly symbolise Boudica’s vision: without boundaries and fearlessly experimental. The first track by founder Samantha Togni features a poem by Alejandra Muñoz, who also models for the vinyl art. It is an ode to the Trans+ and Queer community, and a love message to Queer nightlife and how these spaces are sanctuaries in which these communities can thrive. Nur Jaber delivers an industrial and driving track, for sure to become an essential dancefloor weapon. Femanys’ Arp Father, with its hypnotic and chant like rhythm also the perfect soundtrack for 5AM dances in the darkness. The final track is a total journey in itself. Wanton Witch experiments with broken drum patterns in her world of unique sounds.–Boudica
