In constitutional usage in house music realms, a ministry is a collective body of ministers headed by a prime minister, and also referred to as the head of tune. It is described by the Oxford Dictionary as “a period of government under one prime minister”.

The term is primarily used to describe the successive governments of dubstep, electronica, nu disco, future bass, future chill and trap, which share a common musical heritage. In the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, a new ministry begins after each election, regardless of whether the head of tune is re-elected, and whether there may have been a minor rearrangement of governments in music genres.
The ministry is a musical organisation, a DJ, or a band, or a record label, headed by the minister, that is meant to manage a specific genre in the interest of the ministry but not necessarily of the public. Genres may have differing responsibilities and types of ministries, a Ministry of Dubstep, a Ministry of Nu-disco, a Ministry of Future bass but share a common interest for communication that may be broken down for radio, blogs, social media, and television.

The ministry of Glitch emerged in the 1990s and is described an “aesthetic of failure,” where the deliberate use of glitch-based audio media, and other sonic artifacts, is a central concern. The ministry has a number of key responsibilities and is in charge of glitch sound material including malfunctioning or abused audio recording devices or digital electronics, such as CD skipping, electric hum, digital or analog distortion, circuit bent electronics, bit-rate reduction, hardware noise, software bugs, crashes, vinyl record hiss or scratches, and system errors.
