I'm BACK! Did you miss me? My first mashups on the new laptop....
Created for the recent Crumplbangers Challenge from DJ Firth and oki who wanted us to create a confidence inspiring song with pride - well Pride came early, as I wanted to create a defiantly queer banger to resist what's going on in Qatar and the sad shooting at Club Q in Colorado, echoes of Pulse - and it was Trans Day of Remembrance yesterday.
Our barricades are our dancefloors, our resistance is queer joy.
So here is my first ever Born This Way mashup - including Dua Lipa cos she said HELL NAW to playing Qatar and made clear she only would if they improved their human rights - sadly many others have taken the blood money, shame on them. And Sister Sledge as a nod to my roots and it featuring in The Birdcage movie - which I desperately wanted to use Gloria Gaynor's I Am What I Am but couldn't get it to work with anything, so this will have to do.
And yes despite the title, it is a collab between Instamatic and Captain Obvious!
Thanks to Ian Fondue for the Deelay recommendation, used that to good effect on this track.
Lady Gaga - Born This Way
Dua Lipa - Physical
Sister Sledge - We Are Family
