Resident Advisor has announced Whitney Wei as its new Editor-in-Chief. She joins after eighteen months in the same role at the dance music centric platform run by German phone firm Deutsche Telekom, Electronic Beats.

“I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to lead RA into its new editorial era”, she says. “In taking on this immense responsibility, I put forth my dedication to journalistic integrity and inclusive storytelling to ensure Resident Advisor remains in service to the dance music community”.

Resident Advisor co-founder Paul Clement adds: “This is the first time we’ve recruited externally for a new Editor-in-Chief in over a decade. The role is pivotal in our ability to support and document important moments in the dance music communities past, present and future. We’re incredibly excited about Whitney’s appointment, confident she will bring a fresh approach as we continue to evolve”.

Prior to being put in charge of Electronic Beats at the beginning of last year, Wei wrote about nightlife for various publications, including The Guardian, Vogue US, Pitchfork, FACT, and more. She also sits on the board of trustees of Clubcommission Berlin’s ‘Day Of Club Culture’ and, alongside her journalism, also works as an illustrator.
