Almost Famous | Music Industry Podcast | Episode 25 | Keeley Hudd aka sadsugar (Longthrow Radio co-founder, ESO, Noods Radio)
In this week’s “Almost Famous” music industry podcast episode we catch up with the amazing Keeley Hudd also known as sadsugar – the Bristol DJ, music educator, and co-founder of Longthrow radio.
In this episode, they talk about their nonlinear journey into the music world; it may or may not have started with a fruit platter, but they have developed their musical practice to tackle issues with intersectionality and accessibility in the club scene and changing perceptions of what being a talented DJ looks like, by being campy in a world of males in tiny roll-up hats.
They talk about their experiences with the grind; having to look like you’re doing stuff, promoters that are not good at their job, promoters that are good at their job, and Handbag House. Zaid agrees that it’s time the music industry threw down its handbag of outdated assumptions and had a dance to combat gender inequality.
