Something new is coming down the pipeline from one of our favorite drag queens!

The wicked and beloved Kataya Zamolodchikova takes a break from the green screened “UNHhh” studios and watching Netflix shows with Trixie Mattel to join the Slamdance 2022 line up with her 3D immersive short film BE YOUR OWN DENTIST.

In this project, the “bright red scare with the long blonde hair” takes you on an immersive meditative journey (with a squeamish twist) to help you unwind after a long day - If you don’t mind a little blood, that is.

So grab your meditation pillow and a pair of stainless steel pliers to join Katya and experience the best of what true independent film has to offer.

It’s not too late to explore all the diverse, accessible projects available now on the Slamdance Channel.

Jawbreakers

The DJ-production drag duo known as Jawbreakers is asking people to take "Just a Taste" of their upcoming EP. That flavorful sample called "Boyfriend" is available now on digital platforms. If you're thinking, hey, didn't Ashlee Simpson have a song of the same name back in 2005? Yes, she did, but this version is a lot more club-friendly with an EDM edge.

The creative process has many layers as most dance songs do these days. It begins with the Jawbreakers producing the music then finding a voice to sing it. In this case, Amunda, formerly of the Australian group Operator Please. The song dismisses its punk roots and evolves into a banger bop with dancefloor disco sass much like its producers.
