Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Unlearning’, Glasgow’s WALT DISCO today share the first in a series of remixes from their favourite queer artists. The first is from musical maverick Lynks, who unleashes a fresh dose of underground club energy on the hyperpop-influenced “Hold Yourself As High As Her”, out now. DJ and producer TAAHLIAH’s take on “Macilent” and frequent Walt Disco collaborator BOBBIE’s version of “Selfish Lover”, each follow on July 15 and July 29.
Of the remixes, Walt Disco say “We’re extremely excited and honoured to be presenting these remixes, crafted by some of our most revered queer artists we have the pleasure of knowing. They’ve each lent their talent and individuality to reimagining three of our beloved songs. Lynks, with their ferocious flavour and unmistakable presence. The iconic TAAHLIAH, a modern legend in our eyes, with her unrelenting approach and attitude. And BOBBIE, who’s musical intuition and meticulous craft never fails to leave us awe-struck. We hope you love these as much as we do.”
‘Unlearning’ is out now via Lucky Number - purchase/listen here. The breath-taking debut is steeped in metamorphoses, a stage show in two acts. It covers flings and romances, identities and bodies and change, profound familial love, and - of course - Hollywood glamour. While the themes of the album are universally relatable, Walt Disco’s gift is in the unique experience of discovery and heartbreak between queer people. In Walt Disco’s eyes, it’s never too late to become what you might have been and there are plenty of possibilities to explore on ‘Unlearning’.
