about

"My heart is crying, crying"
- Jackie Wilson, “Lonely Teardrops”

“She cries on every tune, every tune, every tune/ Footsteps on the dance floor remind me baby of you”
- Womack & Womack, “Teardrops”

The tracks on TEARDROPS express our sentiments surrounding Black life, death, hypervisibility and refusal as we confront the reality that the club—like the rest of this world—can be a vulnerable space. TEARDROPS comes out of years experimenting with our hybrid DJ/live PA style of performing. Some of the songs are straight-to-tape recordings, others are edits we use in those same sets and one is an original track inspired directly by our experiences in the club.
