Through their Swagger Like Us parties, Bay Area duo davOmakesbeats and Kelly Lovemonster have been helping maintain San Francisco's queer nightlife scene. Looking to give more exposure to their LGBTQ talent beyond the club, davOmakesbeats and Lovemonster have teamed up once more for a new venture, Molly House Records.
On Friday, May 5, Molly House is releasing a new EP, Molly House Volume 1, which features artists including AH-MER-AH-SU, Saturn Rising, Bbymutha, DDM, and Futurehood's Mister Wallace and Kaycee Ortiz. Today, they're sharing a new single off the record, "Kitty Klap" featuring Baltimore scene stalwart TT The Artist and San Francisco choreographer Sir Joq of Vogue & Tone. Over a whiplash-inducing beat (courtesy of davOmakesbeats), TT the Artist delivers sharp but sassy raps followed by a vogue-inspired verse from JoQ.
Sir JoQ tells THUMP over email, "I was excited and nervous when I was asked to be apart of 'Kitty Klap.' I knew that my verse had to be sickening, especially when I found out that TT The Artist was going to be on the track as well. I wanted to bring vogue elements into my lyrics and was pumped that davOmakesbeats was all about it! I'm pretty slick with my words and for some reason I like talking about trade. I think 'Kitty Klap' is going to be a summer banger, and I can't wait to see everyone slay the dancefloor to it."
Listen to "Kitty Klap" below. To celebrate the new EP, Swagger Like Us is hosting two release parties over two days. Friday, April 28 will see a hometown throw-down at San Francisco's Elbo Room, followed by an April 29 event at Los Angeles's Akbar.
