Kevin Aviance is a legend of New York drag scene, and Beyoncé sampled his 1996 gay club banger “C—” on “Renaissance”’s “Pure/Honey.” She further cemented her alliance with the House of Aviance with this edit from the New York fixture Nita Aviance (no familial relation).

Nita gives a little more of a greased-up electro propulsion, with big synth hisses and clanging echoes. It’s no radical departure, but it successfully wrings a distinctive club mix out of a brisk pop single.

Where to dance to it: Club Tee Gee in Atwater Village.
