Luke Bather - 13th Sept 2016

Cherise Payne and Låpsley pay homage to the Berlin drag scene in this glamorous performance clip with a twist.

We watch on as Berlin drag queen Shiaz Legs gets ready for a performance - lipsyncing to Låpsley's track both on and off stage. We see some gorgeous mirror shots and a methodical make-up regimen before making our way into the club proper. A strong performance (though you'd expect no less) and great looking video that stays true to its inspiration.


"The brief from Låpsley was inspired by an amazing night after her first Berlin show when her friends took her out and introduced her to the city's drag scene. She wanted to pay homage to that night as well as acknowledging the city that first embraced DJ Koze's edit of the track.

"The main performer is Shiaz Legs, a drag queen from the Berlin drag scene that also runs a drag night. She brought down some of her drag - Cher Nobyl, Gieza Poke, Jackie Weinhaus and friends – to star in the video and keep it as true to the scene as possible."
