Hoe__mies are a Berlin-based DJ Duo and the creators of the same-titled party series that quickly garnered popularity and became one of Berlin’s favorite nights. What sets them apart is their political approach to make the music scene more inclusive for womxn, non binary and trans people. They serve as a platform for DJs and performers often overlooked by the mainstream, and challenge male dominance in Hip Hop and other so-called urban genres. As a sound system, Lúcia Lú and Meg10 have played at a great number of German festivals, such as Dockville, Melt and many more, and even curated a stage at Germany’s biggest Hip Hop festival Splash!21. In October 2018 they won the first Red Bull Music Culture Clash that took place in Germany beating three of the most renowned male German producer teams with their crew consisting almost entirely of women, BIPOC and LGBTQ artists.
Hoe__mies DJ sets take you on a ride, from Hip Hop & RnB, Dancehall, Baile Funk, Afrobeats, Reggaeton over to House, Techno and Jersey Club. They are heavy on the booty bouncing music, featuring explicit and sex positive lyrics and of course lots of female and queer energy. In February 2020 Hoe__mies took off with their Spotify Original Podcast “Realitäter*innen”. Each episode they invite guests and have conversations about identities and topics that are underrepresented in the mainstream, such as masculinity, polyamorous dating, sex work, body positivity and many others.
