Tonight I'm doing one of my most important gigs ever. I'll be dj'ing at the world's most radical and important festival - Uganda Pride!
House of Wallenberg has teamed up with drag superstar Lady Bunny and Jwl B of lesbian Florida rappers Yo Majesty on new dance anthem "Keep On Dancing (Until We're Free)". View video here:
The single has been recorded specifically for the Pulse Orlando Fund, in support of the families and victims of the massacre at took place at Pulse Nightclub on June 12.
Petter Wallenberg said: “Queer clubs used to be safe spaces where we could be free. The Orlando shooting changed that. Now when we go out we find ourself prepared for the worst. But its important to not let fear win. As our song says, we need to keep on dancing, loving and fighting. This is our tribute to the Orlando victims but also a manifest for everyone’s right to be free.”
Jwl B said: “I’m from Florida and I lost friends and family from the gay community in the Orlando massacre. I felt I had to do something positive to bring happiness and create a fund raiser. I say to all my angels that lost their lives that we’re gonna keep on dancing until were free.”
Lady Bunny said: “The gay community has remained strong in the face of discrimination, bashing and AIDS. While the shooting at Pulse was grim, it renewed our desire to bond together and fight. A big part of our spirit comes from a club culture in which we gather to dance and celebrate the freedoms we do have. That will never die!”
I'm excited to be dj'ing this Saturday at Brütstock at London's The Scala. This legendary old cinema turned night club is a huge place where I've spent many a drunken night running around as a young club kid in London, so it'll be special! Info here:
