Maude Vôs and Marie Nyx, co-founders of acclaimed inclusive LA based label Delusional Records, have shared their Pride month banger “In The Club Out.” An anthem for queer identity, the cut features a rolling house groove with deep synths and jittery drum loops as an ethereal, robotic croon floats above the track, guiding the song’s message of acceptance: “I’m in the club, and I’m in the club out.” It’s a fitting celebration, aiming to center the role of dance music in the development of the modern LGBTQIA+ movement. As Vôs puts it, “[‘In The Club Out’] is an ode to queer club culture. It embodies richness and fulfillment we experience after a night out with our found family. This song embraces the diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community and showcases visibility around each identity.”
Furthering this message of queer community bonded by music, the initial release of “In The Club Out” will be followed by several remixes from LGBTQIA+ artists across the USA. “The remix portion of the release is so meaningful” says Vôs, “as we brought together queer artists from all over to remix In the Club Out. This remix lineup is a showcase of diversity and intersectionality within the LGBTQIA+ community.” The release will feature remixes from D.C.’s Baby Weight, Atlanta’s Leonce, Los Angeles’ Mar 66, New York’s Janus Rose and PlayPlay, as well as the Bay Area based DJ Kudeki. Embracing the distinctions of regional sounds, the In The Club Out EP celebrates the beautiful distinctions within the queer community around the world.
Representing their first collaboration on original music, the two artists are ecstatic to release it on their very own Delusional Records. Marie and Maude founded the label with the fundamental goal to revive the roots of dance music culture by releasing timeless, hardware driven pieces of work created by an inclusive roster of artists; primarily LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and women. They’re also active in sharing their craft, hosting workshops on Ableton, sound design and synthesis within their community, as well as teaching audio production to young women and at-risk youth for non-profits. Recently, the label was nominated as a candidate for DJ Mag’s Breakthrough Label award in their Best of North America poll. Voting will close tonight at midnight, and can be done here.
