Northern Irish DJ Cormac has launched his new podcast Queerly Beloved. With interviews from Romy of The XX, Andy Butler of Hercules & Love Affair, among others, the queer music podcast explores the unifying role that music plays in developing and fostering queer people and their creativity.
Cormac‘s latest project, Queerly Beloved, shines a light on dance music by exploring its queer roots, history on and off the dancefloor, and celebrating its ever-changing current. Each episode enlightens the journey of discovery of each dance music icon’s (LGBTQIA+ and allies) personal history, sharing unique individual creative queer experiences while honouring communities’ similarities rather than differences.
The first season includes 9 interviews as well as a Cormac bonus feature delving deeper into some of the genres, musicians, icons, and locations addressed throughout. Cormac meets South African artist Lakuti, the inimitable Peaches, trans-artist and icon Jam aka Planningtorock, London clubland legend and sober advocate DJ Fat Tony, celebrated Hawaiian-born electronic talent Kim Ann Foxman, British rising star fka.m4a, and a live studio interview recorded at Amsterdam Dance Event with DJ and performer.
The first two parts (Romy and Hercules & Love Affair) will be released on Tuesday 9th January 2024, with new episodes dropping fortnightly after that. The series is accompanied by playlists on various channels with tracks from the series.
