Queens producer Nire, who is a member of worldwide collective Sister (more on that and other all-female DJ crews here), has made a dream mix of intricate dance music. And guess what? It's all made by women, so next time anyone says "but I don't know any female producers," you can send them this link. Scope the tracklist below to ID tunes by NON's Nkisi, Elysia Crampton, Fatima Al Qadiri, and many more.

"I wanted to make this in the spirit of my recent album, Radika, which features all women artists and my production," Nire told The FADER. "It's really exciting that women and non-binary people are slowly becoming more visible as producers and I want to celebrate that through this mix."

"I chose to sample talks that I've recently watched from women such as Dr. Vandana Shiva (an eco-feminist), Winona LaDuke (a Native American activist), and bell hooks on her recent return to nature as a spiritual journey," she continued. "It's a mix of meditation and heavy dance felt in your core—two of my favorite things."
