Rounding off a breakthrough year dominated in certain quarters by his springtime debut Telo, Gage returns to deliver a heart-stopping new single with ballroom icon Kevin Jz Prodigy.
“This is nasty. Can’t wait to get it back to Vogue Knights” – MikeQ (NYC)
“Literally banging my head against the wall” – Sinjin Hawke (Barcelona)
“Damn this is crazy… doing death drops in my kitchen” – Rabit (Houston)
“Was dying to get my hands on it! So good” – Rizzla (NYC)
“400% Paris Ballroom Scene-approved” – Teki Latex (Paris)
A legendary vogue performer, ball commentator and recording artist in his own right, Kevin Jz Prodigy has been at the heart of the flamboyant East Coast ballroom scene for over a decade. As pioneering producers like Vjuan Allure, MikeQ and Divoli S’vere have crafted the raw, driving beats that soundtrack the modern day ball, Kevin’s wild, impossibly high-energy vocal style has become synonymous with the culture.
On the other side of the Atlantic, Gage’s time in the spotlight has been short but dramatic – his rough, propulsive sound quickly winning support from the likes of Untold, Mumdance, Feadz, Mickey Pearce and Melé. With a fiercely unique style that sits at a precipitous intersection between grime, techno and ballroom, he’s quickly established himself as a standout player in a thriving UK underground.
This collaboration is the sound of musical worlds colliding – an unlikely but explosive meeting of minds and a pertinent symbol of disparate cultures finding common ground through music. It’s already enjoying support from within the ballroom scene and across Europe and the USA.
