La Condition Masculine vs La Condition Feminine

I recently sat down with the lovely chaps at Infinite Ear for an in depth discussion, a la casa, about a mix I had just recorded, which was centered around the theme of female empowerment.


This was made in reaction to the numerous examples popping up in the news regarding cases of machismo, sexism, men using their power to harass/violate/exploit women, etc. Nothing new, something that’s been going on for ever, but hopefully a topic that is creating a growing awareness thanks to this sudden increase in exposure.


Here’s the edited interview (excuse the small tired eyes, I was well hangover that day!)



And the mix that goes with it. It’s a long one, 5h 15min, which travels across genres and decades. Bona fide Cedric Woo tunes all the way, no fillers!
