+++ I’m completely blown away by the debut mixtape of young queer rapper Dandy Warhol, which I discovered on the blog of House of Ladosha member Chris aka Neon. “Charms” is nerdy, smart and amazingly weird, and I just pray that this guy gets the attention he deserves as soon as possible. Here’s the tape:
+++ “Satan’s Angel” is the debut single of New York City based rapper Quay Dash and has been released on the Brooklyn based Cuntmafia label. You should also check out the stunning portrait series of the rapper by photographer Amos Mac (see portrait on top), which has been published on the Original Plumbing website a few weeks ago alongside an interview.
+++ After his beautiful video for “M1NDFVCK” (feat. boychild, see video below), singer-songwriter and Hood By Air associate / stylist Ian Isiah has released his debut mixtape “The Love Champion”. The tape is a bit less spectacular than I expected (imagine Drake with less whining and more sex and sensuality), but still promising, especially because of the collaborations with Le1f and Mykki Blanco. Check it out here:
+++ Really short and not really related to everything else here: Antony has contributed the nice new track “Angel of Fire” to the soundtrack of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. You can stream if on YouTube.
+++ The stunning video artist Luke Gilford has shot in collaboration with boychild for Dazed Digital is now also available on YouTube, so I finally have the chance to post it here. The music for the clip is by Physical Therapy, who will be playing tonight (nov 23) at the Janus party at Chesters, Berlin-Kreuzberg. The second act performing at the party is Teengirl Fantasy, who have also just released a new video for the track “Nun”, the lead track of their new EP.
