about

“We humans range naturally
from
being simple cis to along the
spectrum of LGBTQ to
polyamorous to completely
asexual to a fetishist."

This is a work of joy.
This is perhaps my first release ever starting with a title before any music had even been created. The title hails from early 2019 in fact. However none of the music I was creating at that time nor for much of 2020 fit the theme at all so it was left as an ambition and nothing beyond that. The origin of the title came from a famous electronic music artist refusing to work with me after he knew more about my sexuality. He felt comfortable discriminating against me as did other people in the electronic scene for being sexually upfront. Their simplistic vision of sexuality made me think about humans real complexity. We humans range naturally from being simple cis to along the spectrum of LGBTQ to polyamorous to completely asexual to a fetishist. My first real girlfriend was a former prostitute and I made sure once she told me to not judge/shame her but instead accept her choice as natural for her even if I would not do it. Since then I have had numerous LGBTQ friends and lovers in the adult industry and I know humans are not simple. The need for shame to be removed from sexual identities / choices has been simmering for some time since when I got into a huge argument with my mother for having brought home a newspaper with gay people on its cover. My observation along with the continuous murders of black transpersons weighing on me unsolved made my mind pinpoint a simple phrase that has huge meaning I believe : “YR SEX IS COMPLEX.”

2020 is ending in world chaos especially in America and Europe. Despite covid, I have spent much of the year creating a large body of work with over 5 releases. The death of Chadwick Boseman though wiped my mind clean pushing it into a short depression. With no desire or direction to create, as I started to feel better, it became clear to make YR SEX IS COMPLEX. I worried for over 2 weeks inspired by current music but unsure of my own direction until I realized joy was the answer. That along with abandoning techno toward 3 time. The simple change in time signature opened a new path that visualized the joy needed. Summer of 2020, tumultuous with black death a frequent viral sensation became exhausting along with the constant rubbish spewing from the mouth of 45. So the music on this release IS a release!

******For YR SEX IS COMPLEX, a large amount of music was created so YR SEX IS COMPLEX is being divided between the DECEMBER 4th release “Transition/Renewal+” and the DECEMBER 31st release “CHROMA” Both releases are lego blocks for the same time.

YR SEX IS COMPLEX starts with Say Her Name, music I wanted to create during the start of Black Lives Matter protests but mentally handicapped was unable. From there, I express the joy, self care, and innovation that I have felt and experienced with all the inspiration around me while slowly running from the demons behind me.
