Baby Weight

Baby Weight, a DJ, producer, and label boss from Washington D.C, has released a new EP called ‘It’s Giving’ through HE.SHE.THEY, a London-based collective and label that focuses on inclusivity in the music industry. The EP consists of two tracks, ‘Slay 4 Me’ and ‘Persist’. ‘Slay 4 Me’ features vocals from LA-based artist Jesse Fields and is influenced by the Ballroom, Jersey, and Baltimore club music scenes. ‘Persist’ is described as an “aggressive, no-nonsense” track that serves as a call-to-arms against the bigotry and discrimination that Baby Weight and other queer people face in dance music spaces.

In an interview, Baby Weight expressed frustration with the negative comments and attitudes that some people have towards queer individuals in the music industry. She explained that ‘Persist’ was a way to push back against this negativity and to assert her identity and rights as a queer artist. The EP has received positive reviews and has been praised for its energy and message.

Aside from the EP, Baby Weight has been gaining recognition as an emerging artist in the industry. She was included in DJ Mag’s list of emerging artists earlier this year, and she performed at the DJ Mag Presents party during the SXSW Festival in March, supporting Wreckno, who was featured on the recent DJ Mag North America cover.

HE.SHE.THEY, the collective and label that released ‘It’s Giving’, has also been making waves in the music industry with its focus on inclusivity and diversity. In 2020, they collaborated with mixed reality event specialist Volta to organize three parties at the legendary Ibiza club, Amnesia. The collective also launched an app this year that aims to bring together its various activities and provide a platform for people to connect and engage with the community.

Overall, ‘It’s Giving’ is a powerful and energetic EP that showcases Baby Weight’s talent and message as an artist. It’s a call-to-arms against discrimination and a celebration of the diversity and inclusivity that should be present in the music industry.
