Producer, DJ and community leader TYGAPAW is one of the contemporary guiding lights of the New York club scene. They recently announced their second album, love has never been a popular movement, following up to their 2020 debut album Get Free.
The album will scope eight tracks; and with unshakable confidence does the vital work of fierce self-love as well as exploring TYGAPAW’s journey as a Jamaican reckoning with their trans identity.
TYGAPAW has cited Baldwin as inspiration. Taken from a James Baldwin speech (ref: ‘Meeting The Man: James Baldwin in Paris, Dir. Terence Dixon United Kingdom, France, 1970) TYGAPAW connects their work with the influential novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, social critic, and one of the most prominent figures of 20th-century American literature, Black culture and political thought.
Famous for writing about race in America, Baldwin was openly gay, and wrote powerfully about race and American culture from a male Black gay perspective.
