Maya Jane Coles – Burning Bright featuring Kim Ann Foxman
“Maya Jane Coles teamed with Kim Ann Foxman, formerly of Hercules & Love Affair created this brooding debut album single, it comes with an amazing music video featuring an iconic lesbian resurrection blood ritual.”
Nocturnal Sunshine – Pull Up featuring Ganngsta Boo & you M.A.
“Another from MJC herself, combining her hip-hop background with her signature style. Matched with an amped up sexual, money and fame hungry top line from two female rap powerhouses Gangsta Boo & Young M.A. showing the magnitude of an all female produced hip-hop track.”
Louisahhh, Maelstrom – Silence I
“A powerful and political punk banger from He.She.They. label artist Louisahhh. Combined with frequenter collaborator Maelstrom who brings his dark French electronic touch to everything he touches. Perfect for overthrowing the government, white supremacy and phobics worldwide.”
Kiddy Smile, Crookers – Dickmatized
“Parisian royalty, DJ, Dancer and activist for LGBT rights Kiddy Smile always bringing the straight up fire. Kiddy echoes their vogue and ballroom background and schools us in the bewitching power of The D, as any good MC should.”
Patrick Topping – Dungeon Freak featuring Daddy Dino
“One to turn the dance floor upside down. Daddy Dino takes you by the throat and throws you into the depths of the dungeon. Topping’s chugging backing track taking influence from the poignant style of the late 1980s Belgian underground sound, New Beat.”
Arca, Sophie – La Chiqui
“Transgender royalty joining forces, effortlessly blending their ethereal and chaotic sounds to create a future RnB smash drenched in the PC music flavour. Fresh from Arca’s recent album ‘KiCk i’ released on XL Recordings.”
Lyzza, Shygirl – Take The L
“Shygirl, unlike her alias, once again delivers her dark, venomous lyrics over Brazilian producer LYZZA’s militant industrial techno kicks. This fusion of Ballroom and Hard Dance hits differently.”
Marilyn Manson, Sneaker Pimps – Long Hard Road Out Of Hell
“Iconic metal moment in history. Manson defies gender and entity in this collaboration. Discovering this track was a pivotal point in my journey as a dark queer kid.”
