I first met the amazing Krylon Superstar in NYC, back in the late 90s. She kinda had a schtick going that involved various objects being ejected from her butthole…it was the 90s, clubkid era, and everybody had a ‘talent’. Since then, we both spent time traveling the world, using Berlin as our homebase for cheap beers and quite a bit of elicit behaviors…but it was Berlin and we were basically the only two black boys there…lol…you get the pic.
Now my girl is once again turning it on vocals for queer production & performance art duo Double Duchess, along with producer davO. Their debut album All Eyes On Me is kinda a soundscape influenced by the New York vogueing ballroom scene, but edged-up with hip hop cadence, electro club beats, and gay culture subversiveness.
“The title of the record represents the pressure that we feel as artists in today’s society to always be on,” says davO. “With social media, there’s the overwhelming pressure of self-promotion and of creating a one dimensional being, when we are really complex humans.”
