Producer and singer duo Purple Crush have a mesmerizing 8-minute long video “Vogue Opera” (directed by Ash + Bone) that celebrates the energy and euphoria of the ballroom scene and features some of the best voguing I’ve seen in ages.
Divided into four separate performances, individual dancers and teams compete by exchanging sensual spins and poses before color-filtered cameras. Joining them is Purple Crush’s singer Isla Chanel, herself a competing (and Grand prize winning) voguer in the house of Chanel.
Soundtracking the performances are cuts from Purple Crush’s corresponding Vogue Opera EP with Chanel’s angelic voice hovering over low bass-grinds and the erotic vocal thrall of MCs Kevin JZ Prodigy and Kage Prodigy, Enyce Chanel, Ja Ja Rodeo, Miss Barbie Q, and Shay Ebony. Isla also contributed vocals to the single “Wherrk” with Ballroom DJ/producer Vjuan Allure.
There’s a release party in LA TOMORROW NIGHT at the Banjee Ball at Los Globos . Find out how to attend HERE.
