This Satisfaction month, we’re feeling significantly proud. So we reached out to LGBTQIA+ icons and allies alike and requested them to compile a playlist of their all-time final Satisfaction anthems. First up is a group of underground home, disco, and synthpop bangers from all LGBTQIA+ artists curated by none aside from the deliciously devious Daddy Squad, who when not producing for Violet Chachki is blessing us with bops like this and this. Thanks, D(z)addy!
So, what does Satisfaction sound like for Daddy Squad? “The LGBT+ scene is vastly various, so we are able to rejoice that range somewhat extra. We needs to be celebrating the queer artists, and holding them up,” he mentioned. “For me there’s quite a lot of Satisfaction playlists on the market which have Kylie, Dua Lipa and so forth. Positive, these are icons, and quite a lot of LGBT+ folks love them. However they aren’t homosexual artists as such. They aren’t LGBT+ (so far as I do know… possibly Dua will shock us all but). I wished to deal with LGBT+ people who find themselves making unbelievable music, typically they’re extra different, and fewer well-known.”
After we requested him to spill the tea on what ‘delight’ means to him, he was pretty open about his emotions across the lack of range and visibility typically skilled by the LGBTQIA+ neighborhood, “Similar to my playlist, I do really feel we have to rejoice the range of the LGBT+ scene. So typically we get pasted into classes, whether or not you’re a bear, or a drag queen, or a twink. The fact is much more nuanced and various. I’ve queer associates who’re graffiti artists, who’re efficiency artists making floor breaking work, who’re musicians making something however “homosexual” music.”
He was additionally gracious sufficient to offer us with one thing visible to help his level (see beneath for the gag). “There’s loads of meme’s circulating about this, with firms exhibiting enjoyable loving chiselled guys representing Satisfaction. My actuality is sort of totally different, and lots of of my associates really feel likewise. We must always rejoice equality by way of range, not simply range from the non-LGBT+ scene, but additionally WITHIN the LGBT+ scene. As a result of it’s one thing to rejoice, this individuality.”
