The Banlieus are Burning: In his impressive new video “Let A Bitch Know”, Paris based musician Kiddy Smile brings the city’s ballroom scene to city’s suburbs, while setting them – both literally and metaphorically – on fire. The video has premiered today on the website of i-D magazine, accompanied with an interview, in which Kiddy himself describes the clip as an act of “reclaiming the street culture and environment that made me the artist I am today”.
The song combines classic house elements with hypnotic synthesizers and is part of Kiddy Smile’s “Enough Of You” EP, it is out on the London based Defected Records label. A vinyl version can be pre-ordered here. Berliners will have the chance to see Kiddy Smile perform live as part of the YO!Sissy queer music festival on July 29.
