Jin: the two of you were sat eating dinner, and you were excitedly talking about all the new features Apple had added to Logic X (the producing software you used); new compressors, the alchemy synth, the varispeed tool… jin didn’t really understand half of the things you were saying, but loves listening to you nonetheless, so just looked at the way your facial expressions changed when you talked about things you were passionate about, smiling fondly. when you were tidying up, you realised how much you’d been talking, and began to apologize to him, to which he replied with a firm kiss to your lips to keep you quiet (and to show he loved you).
“you know I love you, stop apologizing! do I have to show you how much I love you, huh? right, come here then…”
Yoongi: the company had said that a producer would be coming in for an interview today and nosey little yoongi wanted to see what they looked like. he was so surprised when it turned out that the person stood there was you: a female. there aren’t many females in the ‘music-technology-producer-dj’ industry and he was kind of shook? when they met for the first time, there was an instant connection. the two of you got on so well, talking about everything; music, production, food, life. just everything. it’s no shock to anyone when a relationship eventually develops between the two of you. a lot of your ‘bonding’ time is spent in the studio, working on tracks together, separately or having sex in the studio because… why not?
“kitten, could you pass me the midi keyboard please; oh and while you’re up, come ride me? ;)”
Namjoon: you arrived at the block of studio’s near you, waving at the security and happily walking towards your personal studio. you looked at your phone and then SLAM! someone accidentally walked into you. they were considerably taller than you, causing you to fall flat on your bum. the person began apologizing repeatedly, helping you up. his voice was deep, but in a calming, sultry way, rather than it being intimidating or threatening. you looked up at the person and gasped quietly; he was so attractive!
“i’m so sorry!” the mystery man spoke.
“no, no, it’s okay!” you replied.
“so i don’t think i’ve seen you here before; i’m namjoon!” he held his hand out.
“hi, i’m ___. i’m a producer so i just sort of live in my studio and don’t really come out to socialise” you laughed.
“woah no way! sorry it’s just you’re the first female producer i’ve met! i have to rush off now, but maybe we could meet up some time? i’d like to get to know you. here’s my number” he stated, giving you his number and winking at you before he left.
Hoseok: you skipped into your’s and hoseok’s shared studio, repeatedly humming this new tune you’d created to yourself. you speedily played the notes in and clicked a quick drum beat in, worrying about all the little stuff later. you were in such a haze that you didn’t even notice your boyfriend walking in. you felt a kiss on your forehead, momentarily blocking the view of your mac, snapping you out of your daze. you smiled up at hoseok and spun in your chair to look at him.
“working on a new track?” he asked, to which you nodded excitedly.
“can we work on it together? couple collab!” hoseok would suggest enthusiastically.
you started working on the track together, and hobi wrote a rap and a hook for you to sing. you spent about a week working on it, sometimes sleeping (and doing less innocent things) in the studio. you were both so happy when it was finished, to the point that hoseok wanted to put it on his mixtape.
Jimin: you were sat on your laptop working on a track in your living room, when you looked up and saw jimin walk into the room. you took your headphones off and smiled at him as he walked over to you and planted a kiss on your forehead. when he saw that you were producing something he smiled at you; he really loved what you did for a living. he asked to listen to what you were doing, and you passed him your headphones. he had an impressed and shocked expression on his face as he listened.
“ah babe! this is so good! please, please, pleeaassee teach me the ways of the music tech gods!” he’d ask, giggling and doing aegyo towards you. you’d smile and nod, closing what you were doing and opening a new project to work on with jimin.
Taehyung: you were sat in your studio trying to mix a track, rubbing your eyes and listening to the track intensely. you sighed as at this point, you’d been listening to the same song for 3 hours straight and your ears were actually tired and not working properly. you heard your boyfriend knock at the door and you paused the track inviting taehyung in.
“you still working on this? i really admire your skills as a producer but jeez… it’s been hours. i thought you were dead!” he’d say sympathetically, softly giggling at the end. you’d nod very slowly, pulling a faint smile, rolling your eyes and looking back to the screen, going back to the EQ problem you’d been having.
“maybe you need a little break” taehyung would say suggestively, spinning you in your chair to face him. next thing you knew, you were kissing passionately and he was moving his kisses all the way down your neck and to the middle of your legs.
Jungkook: you were on your second date with jungkook, when he realised something: he had no idea what you did for a living. when he asked you and you told him you were a producer, he was shook. the conversation went a little like this:
“oh, i’m a music producer. kind of an audio engineer too, but i prefer producing” you laughed.
“no. way! you.. wait… really?” he’d blubber.
“i would really love to hear some of your stuff sometime” he’d finally speak after composing himself. “sorry, i just think it’s so cool and i just sort of panicked. like, i couldn’t do my job if it weren’t for producers like you.” he added, explaining his earlier blubbering. secretly, jungkook was a little turned on for some odd reason, but he kept his 18+ thoughts to himself… for now.
after the date that night, jungkook couldn’t stop thinking about the idea of having sex with you in the studio, and so he had a fun little night to himself thinking about you.
a/n: i might write some extended of these as actual little stories, because i love writing about music technology lmao. what do you guys think?

/IMPORTANT: Please note that being in a relationship does not fix your problems. Especially depression and anxiety or other mental illnesses. Being with someone you love and who loves you back can HELP, but it is in no way a solution. If you suffer from any mental illness, and are struggling, you should seek professional help. There are many hotlines you can call for free and going to the doctor is really your best bet for dealing with these illnesses./
“And I know the scariest part is letting go.
‘Cause Love is a ghost you can’t control.
I promise you the truth can’t hurt us now.
So let the words slip out of your mouth.”
It’s been two weeks since you’ve last seen your fiancé. He’s been distant lately. He barely replies to your texts or answers your calls. When he does speak to you, he’s very short and doesn’t say much. He always seems to be doing something else.
Hoseok is a dance teacher and choreographer, so you’re used to him working a lot. But this is out of character for him. Because he’s so busy, he loves to talk and text with you because he misses you. He loves hearing your voice after a long day. You used to spend just about every night at either of your places having movie and drama marathons. Not so much now.
Normally, you’d be worried. But when you hear that flat and uninterested voice on the other side of the phone, your stomach twists with guilt. After 3 years of being together, you can pick up on the underlying hurt that’s laced in his words. You know exactly why he’s been so scarce.
You haven’t said the words yet. The three words that everyone wants to hear. You can’t bring yourself to say them. Not directly to him while he’s awake, anyway.
Growing up, the words were always thrown around without any meaning. “I love you,” was used as a band aid after someone hurt you. Your parents, your siblings, and even your few boyfriends; they all did it.
You started to hate those words. They held no happiness for you. In fact, it was the opposite. You vowed that you would never say them again. At least not until that person proved that they deserved it.
When you started dating Hoseok, you immediately realized he was different. He was happy and considerate. He was always smiling. He shone brighter than the sun. You were so drawn to him. You couldn’t help it. His warmth made you feel safe. You had less panic attacks and the depression seemed to lessen a little.
There’s a quote that always seemed to fit how you felt: “You know you’re in love when home becomes a person, not a place.” Hoseok became your home.
After two years of utter bliss, he took you to your favorite park where you had your first date. You sat on the same bench that you did when he asked you to be his girlfriend months later. He knelt in front of you with your favorite flowers in one hand and a ring in the other.
It was the first time he’d said the words. He didn’t expect you to say them back since he knew how you felt about them. He waited to use them until that day because he wanted you to know that he meant them and that he would mean them for the rest of his life.
When you hear the name George Maple - a kind, personable, female is not what comes to mind. Maple (aka Jessica Higgs) continues to surprise us with her impeccable music production abilities. Get to know more about George Maple in our exclusive interview.
“female:pressure is an international network of over 1300 female artists from 64 countries in the wider fields of electronic music. This blog was inspired by Bjork’s Pitchfork article in January 2015 where she notes the lack of photographic documentation of women at work in the studio.
Here we offer a visual catalogue of female producers, DJ’s, media artists and electronic music performers at work. These are not our press photos. This is a collective effort to demonstrate women and their use of technology in music and media production. Contributions welcome!
My EP MISSLEADING is finally here! For those of you who have been into my work for while, you’ve probably heard me mention this EP thousands of times over the past 3 years. Producing this project honestly made me the woman I am today and I couldn’t be prouder of the result. I hope you enjoy!
