Ten Walls releases new track ‘Shining’ via LGBT website
Earlier this year, Lithuanian producer Ten Walls was ousted from the electronic music community for releasing homophobic sentiments through his personal Facebook account. In a matter of days, he had been dropped by his booking agency and ejected from a number of festival lineups such as Mysteryland Netherlands and Creamfields. Ten Walls’ seemingly hateful words rattled the community, particularly his home country, so strongly that even the Lithuanian president spoke out on the controversy.
Since June, Marijus Adomaitis has attempted countless apologies — mostly to no avail. Having taken a break from music production and temporarily faded away from the spotlight, Ten Walls returns with his latest effort, “Shining.” The emotive, vocal-laden track features the talents of transgender singer Alex Radford and is available for free download through LGL, a Lithuanian LGBT collective. Ten Walls paired the release with the following statement from LGL:
“One of the main principles of our organization is to build bridges rather than barriers. We can become a community free from fears and prejudices only by being open and ready to learn from our mistakes. The National LGBT rights organization LGL applauds the initiative by Ten Walls to premiere his new song “Shining” at the web platform of the national LGBT organization. We firmly believe that this will become a small step towards creating an open and inclusive environment in the Lithuanian society.”
