Diplo delves into underground ballroom scene in second ‘Blow Your Head’ episode
After premiering his new cultural documentary series Blow Your Head on Potato last week, Diplo has followed it up with a strong second showing. The latest installment features Qween Beat co-founder Mike Q and shines a light on the underground LGBT ballroom scene that he makes music within. While the seminal 1990 documentary Paris is Burning introduced the “voguing” dance form to mainstream consciousness, Mike Q shows that the style is alive and well in modern day Manhattan and New Jersey. Diplo has delivered again, providing a great glimpse into a thriving house sub-culture that rarely gets attention.
