The dance floor has long been a reflection of social and cultural change. We saw it earlier last month with Amuka‘s “Don’t Fall For Me.” Now comes Deney Adam with the release of “Judas.”

JUDAS OUT NOW! CHECK IT OUT ON youtube / amazon / Spotify / Google play . . . . . . . . COVER SONG BY BANKS. . #newmusic #gay #media #musicvideo #newsong #newmusic #music #pop #alternative #song #sing #dj #producer #artist #dance #housemusic #man #transgender #women #lgbt #lgbtq #fashion #nightclub #cover @hernameisbanks #style @bcallabcalla @renatodicent #producer @mherwolf @hernameisbanks #videographer @austinunes @k_korvin
Produced by Mher Filian, Adam’s version is a steamy, sultry cover of Banks’ 2016 hit. It is smokier than the original while still maintaining its quintessential chill vibe.
“I was obsessed with Banks’ album when it first came out,” he explains. “I had ’Judas’ and ‘Train Wreck’ on repeat for literally three months, nonstop, every day. I knew I would have to cover one of the songs for the new ep. I chose ‘Judas’ because it speaks to the villainous moment we are living in.”
He is referring to the Trump impeachment inquiry.
“We’re currently dealing with a slew of treacherous, double-crossing characters in the White House and in Congress; cowards who are turning their backs on what they know is right in order to protect their own jobs. It’s a betrayal to their oaths of office and a reminder that some forms of duplicity are absolutely unforgettable and unforgiveable.”
“Judas” is the third single from Deney Adam’s upcoming Sandcastle EP. It follows previous singles, “Blue” and “Heart Drop,” released earlier this year.
He says every song on the new EP is different and delivers its own message covering an array of subjects.
“They’re about sex, beauty, youth, and break ups, but what makes them all come together is their similar sonic vibe.”
When Deney Adam is not recording, he’s working his full-time job as a make-up artist in New York City. His work has been featured in numerous magazines including Vogue, Interview and the New York Times. He has worked with top designers including François Nars and Tom Ford and photographers Steven Klein and Mario Testino, among others. His celebrity clientele includes Susanne Bartsch, Lady Gaga, Daya and Kiiara.
“I love doing makeup but music has always been a big part of my life and I have never let go of my passion to sing.”
Deney Adam’s “Judas” is being distributed by TuneCore and is available on iTunes, Spotify and all digital platforms. Follow on Instagram @imdeneyadam
