Lady Of The House, an active female community dedicated to promoting women in the dance music industry, has announced the launch of her own label of the same name.
The new imprint marks the next step in the brand’s impressive progression so far, following the groundbreaking cultural exhibition Lady Of The House, held on International Women’s Day in March, and the release of the acclaimed book Lady Of The House, celebrating the pioneering women of house music through the years.
Accompanying the label news, Lady Of The House is also set to hold a month-long competition to search for future women and non-binary dance stars. Entrants will be invited to submit demos with four lucky winners getting the chance to release their own material through Lady Of The House. They will also benefit from an impressive support and mentorship program, guaranteed to help them take the next steps in their career, as well as having their tracks remixed by world-renowned DJs/producers.

BBC Radio One broadcaster, producer and breeder sought after, Jaguar said of the new label:
“We’re entering such an exciting time for dance music right now and I can’t wait to see all the amazing talent coming forward as Lady Of The House label godmother. For me, I’ll be looking for records that really capture my attention, regardless of genre. I’m a big fan of music that fuels me in some way, whether it gives me energy or makes me feel a certain emotion very strongly.
The competition – ranging from From Friday 27 May to Thursday 30 June – is open to all emerging women and non-binary acts. Head toward www.label-worx.com/demo/lady-of-the-house to submit your demo.
