Exuberant house artist Octo Octa discusses her highly personal new LP with Shawn Reynaldo
“The last year in Maya Bouldry-Morrison’s life has been eventful, to say the least. Although she knew that publicly coming out as transgender meant that her work as Octo Octa would never again be viewed the same way, she didn’t necessarily anticipate that she’d be so quickly welcomed into an international network of queer artists, parties and collectives within the world of electronic music. Honey Soundsystem is one of the key players in that network, and the San Francisco-based label just so happens to be releasing the newest Octo Octa album, Where Are We Going? With the LP set to drop this week, Octo Octa speaks about how her transition factored into the record while also contrasting the (mostly) positive response she’s received with the everyday reality of living as a trans woman.”
The show will air Thursday 23 March from 6-8pm in Europe, 1-3pm in New York and 10am to noon on the West Coast.
Listen live or on demand (everywhere except the US) as soon as the original airing is complete on Red Bull Radio
