about

If there is one thing I have learnt in a decade of being a trans woman, its that I should talk less and smile more.

(Check the track info! Each song has intent and a write-up about why it needs to be said!)

And I fucking refuse. Yes, trans women are angry sometimes. We are damn well justified! So yes, Let Me Be Perfectly Queer. I and the women like me will not be silenced. We will never stop fighting for a better world for not only ourselves, but for all of us.

To quote Sylvia Rivera, "The people up there trying to do something for all of us, not just a white middle class white club!"

This EP originally started out as a local trans activist and woman who shows her power every day asking me to submit a couple tracks for a pride event. Originally, I was just going to submit a few already released tracks, and instead I got inspired.

After the countless times this year that I have been laughed at, called a bully, or told that I am simply being angry and ridiculous by my cis-queer "allies" all for demanding respect and requesting backup against transphobia, I had something to say.

So yes. Yall better quiet down, because I have been trying to be taken seriously for a damn decade, and I am only about to get louder. Nothing will silence me.

---

On to the technical stuff! I wrote this EP in like 2 weeks, because I super stalled and delayed for a while. So, in that two weeks I completely redesigned my studio, picked up a new mixer/recorder (Zoom L-12, definitely recommend), and learnt a new groovebox.

The woman who originally inspired this lent me a Korg Electribe 2, which appears prominently on '2021 Pride Ambient Jam' and 'Field of Dreams' as texture and lead sounds. Good lord does this thing have a chunky bass sound, and my word is it everything I wanted the circuit to be.

Everything else is standard fare: MPC Live (Gen 1), Modal Skulpt, Volca Keys, Novation Circuit for writing. Ardour and LSP-Suite for limiting & finalization.
