Fagget Fairys is the dynamic duo of Copenhagen based dj Carla Cammilla Hjort and MC Ena, who are both a hot couple - on and off stage and two busy bees when it comes to creative output.

In 2009 they released their debut album, including hit single and lesbian anthem Feed the horse and have since been heavily touring Denmark, all Europe and places like Tel Alviv, Sao Paolo and New York. Every weekend they deliver topnotch dancefloor experience with their mix of own material + other samples - in the field between Balkan, hiphop, techno, electronic bangers and a quality pop feeling. On top of Carlas mix and trademark sound, Ena is creaming the cake with a stunning stage presence of both sexy and cool. With her Bosnian background, model looks, badass attitude and obviously star quality – she is despite her young age – one hell of a performer to watch out for…

Besides being awardwinning popstars with a clubby twist (they just cleared the table recently at the Danish DJ and Club Awards). The girls also got a numerous projects going on. Carla is the founder of the art-music-fashion collective ArtRebels, and together they started the Trailerpark Festival – a 4 day music festival going on in Copenhagen in July – growing every year – in respect and size.

The very first artist to release on Palms Out, back in 2007, Fagget Fairys are back- with an EP full of the attitude they are known for. Following last years Feed the Horse LP, the ladies are back once again to conquer dancefloors. Ena's vocal stylings have not lost any swank, and the beats come correct. 

The A-side, "Black Hole" invokes a familiar lead line that weaves around sultry lyrics.

 The B-side, "Turkish Delight" sees MC Ena returning to the balkan roots that we saw on the original Samo Ti EP - a rowdy eastern adventure. Remixes explore various angles all with a lean towards deep dark house, with Scandinavians leading the charge. Danish man of the moment, Mikkel Holtoug gives the original version of "Black Hole" an icy Scandinavian work out, staying true to the original while lifting it further into house territory. Russian Danish transplant Jean Doe impresses with an uber-modern version, for fans of UK house and german techno alike. Icelandic Brynjar takes things harder and deeper with an electro tinged growling bassline and staggered beats. On the flip side, German club aficionados Beware + Motorpitch come through with a solid bumpy house version of "Turkish Delight," using the varied parts to great effect. Finally, New York based Contakt, hot off a release on T.Williams' Local Action, channels the dancefloors of Berlin's Berghain for his deft interpretation.
