Say hello to Le Fil. Who you might immediately recognise the British-Chinese multi-disciplinary performer from television, since he is appearing on season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, currently. If you are watching the show (which I estimate a high proportion of EQ Music Blog Readers do), there is a good chance that you have noticed Le Fil. Firstly, this will be because of the stunning werkroom entrance. That undoubtedly was a head-turning look. The look an orange Gaultier/Madonna-inspired corset, replete with three cones not two. This being a fashion statement that created one of the first memorable moments on the opening show of the new season. (My personal opinion. I thought this look should have earned him a coveted RuPeter Badge).
Assuming you watched this programme. My assumption is you were watching closely. You did so, in the hope of. And not least because of wanting to get to know all of the new Queens’ better. With this in mind, at this early point in the competition. It is the first batch of runway looks that helped to bring out the personalities of these new Season 4 Queens’.
In particular. The opening pieces of the show, is where Le Fil stated his love of performing, singing and writing music, in particular. In fact what you should know is, he has released three new mini-singles (produced by Lostchild) and that they link with RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 4 launch show.
The tracks “Ready 4 U” and “East To The West” pays homage to his multicultural upbringing. For the ‘Keeping it 100’ runway theme section of the show. Celebrating the 100th birthday of the BBC, Le Fil wrote “P.U.D.S.E.Y.” – an upbeat song inspired by Pudsey Bear and the charity and telethon Children In Need.
Additionally, I should point out. When presented with the infamous girl group challenge last night on Episode 2. Above all, Le Fil, got a little chance to shine on the Yass-ton bury, Glastonbury-inspired task. Likewise, If like me you liked what you heard in this performance. It is needless to say, you should make a point to look at all three of the new tracks. I am craving extended versions of dance-pop groover “Ready 4 U” and club banger “East to the West“. To pick one favourite from those two tracks would be a difficult task. (Thank heavens, I am not required to do this!)
Long may Le Fil remain in the competition. Yet Furthermore, I am excited by the collaboration of Le Fil and Lostchild, since there undoubtedly is some definite music magic happening here.
