In Canada, one woman takes on stereotypes as a drag king | AFP

Melodie Rousseau is an actress by day, but at night, the 33-year-old Canadian makes herself up as a man and takes the stage at Montreal’s cabaret halls as a drag king. Performing in drag is not only a means of artistic expression, it’s a political statement by Rousseau and others looking to step out of the formidable shadow of the better-known drag queens.

Bensley – ‘Trillium’

Acclaimed Canadian musician Bensley releases his eagerly awaited sophomore album ‘Muskoka’, featuring twelve scintillating cuts that demonstrate why he is one of the most original and exciting talents in Drum & Bass.

With ‘Muskoka’, Bensley takes the listener on an exciting, immersive journey and draws upon his varied musical talents, dropping elements of jazz (as on ‘Hard Times’ and ‘One Last Chance – Remix’ which feature Bensley’s impressive alto-saxophone playing), hip-hop (‘Do It Again’ ft. Armanni Reign), plus breaks and jungle (‘Muskoka’ which incorporates clever samples to evoke sounds of animals and birdlife). This creates an unforgettable album which is as vibrant and awe-inspiring as the landscape and nature of the part of Canada which has inspired its namesake, Muskoka.

On ‘Muskoka’ Bensley says: “‘Muskoka’ is a body of work comprised primarily of music that I wrote while at my family’s lakeside cottage in Muskoka, Ontario. This is a place where I’ve spent every summer for as long as I can remember, and that has hugely shaped the person I am today. The breath-taking wildlife, forests and lakes provide an endless source of inspiration and make Muskoka not only my favourite place to write music, but my favourite place to be.”

Bensley’s ground-breaking 2015 debut album ‘Next Generation’ won him widespread acclaim, including from Zane Lowe, MistaJam, Friction, Zeds Dead and DJ Fresh. This debut was followed by celebrated singles ‘Outsider’, ‘Tiptoe’, and ‘Slither’, plus official remixes for the likes of Flux Pavilion, Azari & III, and Camo & Krooked.
