When it comes to ensuring our Pride Saturday night party DSD Full Throttle Super Icons has superpowers there is only one DSD hero we can turn to. DJ Paul Coals, DSD fav and all round disco saviour will be joining us at Ohso for a Pride celebration like no other. We caught up with him to talk Pride, jack and a icon called Alison
So Brighton Pride is almost here – what besides DSD are you looking forward to most and why? I am really looking forward to playing in the Mens Tent because the mighty Chris Barker DSD Resident is on before me, then Hifi Sean will close the Tent.
Can we expect any Pride exclusives – new tunes / productions / a particularly special outfit? I will be playing for the first time ever the Mikalis and Mark Wilkinson Remix of Inner City Good Life plus some other exclusives. But you will have to come to DSD on Pride night to find out what they are! The only thing special i will be wearing on the night will be my Orange DSD hat. If you can’t spot me with that on, you must be blind lol.
What do you remember about your first ever Pride? To be honest, i don’t remember to much about my first pride, so i must of had a good time.
Keeping with the Brighton & Hove theme who is your LGBT icon? I love Alison Moyet. She he is amazing live and has been at the top of the tree for years now.
Obviously we love to party at Pride but beside the glorious BPMs that accompany the weekend what is it about Pride celebrations that are important to you? What I love about pride is the face that everyone of all ages and nationalities comes together and let there hair down for one day and have a great day out.
As you probably know Mr Putin has a problem with our LGBT brothers and sisters in Russia – what message would you send to him this Brighton Pride weekend? I’m sorry but i don’t think there is much help for people who share the same views has him. They will never change and that is a real sad thing to say but it’s the trough. I wonder how he would react if he found out that one of his children turned out to be gay, Mmmmmm…
Ultimate Pride tune? David Penn Sun Rising Up
And finally please complete this sentence. The queues at the bars over Pride are not easy to deal with when your DJing so mines a… pint of Jack Daniels with ice please.
