CVNT introduces four tracks via Body Work.

Hailing from Glasgow and now based in Manchester, CVNT might not seem like a natural-born producer of ballroom house, the underground New York LGBT culture that gave us vogueing, but on his new EP for the Body Work label he’s forged his own transatlantic take on the style, melding hints of garage, grime and rushing acid with all-out, heavy-duty house music.

“There comes a point in the life of all ballroom children where, if they want to become legendary, they must make their ‘statement’,” explains the producer born Niall Connolly. “I don’t walk balls, I make music for other people to walk balls to. So my statement is not a look, it is not face, or body or femme or a dance or a dip or couture: my category is music.”

As a bonus, CVNT has made his ballroom twist on TNGHT’s ‘Higher Ground’ available as a free download from his Soundcloud. You’ll also find a new mix he’s put together ahead of his set at Dalston Superstore in London this Saturday, November 19.

Last year FACT met the crown prince of ballroom, DJ MikeQ, who told us about his ongoing pursuit of “that c*nt feeling”.
