The genre-bending track arrives primarily as a result of PENNYWILD’s time in Ephrat Asherie’s street and social dance company in New York back in 2014. During this time, Omari Wiles, who contributes vocals to “Footsteps,” helped open her eyes to the ball and vogue culture. Five years later, the two are bringing the best out of each other again with a dynamic collaboration fit for ballrooms and nightclubs alike.
“The moment I discovered I wanted to create an homage to the genre, I knew I had to get Omari involved. Through working on this track together, we really pushed the boundaries of one another’s artistic expression.” – PENNYWILD
PENNYWILD is a DJ, producer and choreographer currently based in Los Angeles by way of New York City. Growing up in theatre and dance, the multitalented performer got her start touring the world with the Broadway musical “West Side Story” at 18. During the tour’s three-month stay in Berlin, she began to participate in the city’s vibrant electronic music scene, and she subsequently pivoted to DJing. Since then, PENNYWILD has solidified a reputation for her intricate performances, incorporating music, visual art, and original choreography into a cohesive live experience. As PENNYWILD, she’s performed at globally renowned festivals such as Coachella, SXSW, Lightning in a Bottle, HARD Summer, BUKU, and more. In 2018, Penny teamed up with finger drumming expert Coby Ashpis to create a MIDI controller powered by your feet — the “Penny Pad” — in a larger initiative to fuse choreography with music production. To this day, she digitally releases original dance concept videos under the series #PennyWildWednesdays.
