A Proud DSD Quickie with Queen Josephine

IMG_0747Pride partying without the Queen wouldn’t be right. Yes our Josephine is responsible for way too many regals smiles over Brighton Pride so it seemed only majestically fitting that we grab a Queenie Quickie before she provides us with the perfect DSD Party soundtrack this weekend. She is the DSD Queen after all.

Style of music played? House – Deep, dark, light, fluffy, classic, unknown and the odd bit of filth!

Anything special planned for your DSD Pride set this year? I’m playing right across the DSD time zones with some early and some late slots so I’m planning an assortment of all of the above. Plus a dazzling array of new Tshirts and a thoroughly sturdy bra (can you hear me Mister Barker???)

Why is LGBTQ Pride important to you? I’ve been knocking about a long time and remember marching along Western Road in 1991 and, clichéd as it is, I’m really proud of how far we’ve come! We should be bloody proud of who we are. But we mustn’t forget that we are the fortunate ones, simply because of where we live. Brighton Pride is – and should be – a great big fabulous party. Yet we must also never forget our brothers and sisters for whom every day is a struggle to be who they actually are. As Pride will also be highlighting the 82 countries where being gay is not ‘acceptable’, we will be able to show our support for those less fortunate than ourselves. So yep – Pride is important to me for both political and party hard reasons……bring it on!!!!

Why do you love DSD at Pride so? I love DSD full stop, but over Pride my love goes even further as we have three sessions of gorgeousness to look forward to and the DSD crowd are the best!!! Can’t say which I’m looking forward to most as I’m ridiculously excited about all of them though I reckon Saturday night is going to be HUGE.

Ultimate Pride tune? Must play (for my lovely AJ) Dr Kucho Lies To Yourself as the bass line really has Pride party stamped all over it. Plus a favourite from this season that’s been rocking the dancefloor Acid Games by Luke Solomon.

Dirty or Disco at Pride? Depends on the time really as dirty usually comes later…..though there’s nothing like sticking a camp and fabulous disco classic on to round things up at silly o’ clock in the morning!

Sunset or sunrise at Pride?  Sorry to sit on the fence but I intend to be enjoying both….xxx

Catch Queenie at DSD every night over Brighton Pride weekend at Ohso Social Bar plus doing her Dirty Sunset Disco thing in the Calabash Tent at Preston Park Pride Festival. www.facebook.com/dirtysunsetdisco

A proud DSD Quickie with Zach Burns

#IMG_3326finalWith Brighton Pride fast approaching its seems only right that we get lots of DSD Quickies in as we build up to a weekend of fabulously proud parties. First up is our delicious guest DJ for Friday nights DSD Lift Off! party, the gorgeous Zach Burns. Well you can’t say no can you?

Style Of Music Played? Everything House from Circuit Style to Uplifting Funky House, Deep Nu Disco. HOUSE HOUSE HOUSE.. For DSD I like to mix it up with some funky Nu Disco vibes and chunky Deep House Bass.

Anything special planned for your DSD Pride Lift Of set? My debut at DSD was a great experience getting to know what the crowd likes so for Pride it will be a full on blast of Deep Basslines and Synths getting into your soul, Nu Disco vibes to keep those feet moving & classic vocals to lift you up.

Why is LGBTQ Pride Important To You? I personally count myself very fortunate for the time and generation I live in and more so the country where equality and peoples perceptions and thoughts of the LGBTQ community is becoming more integrated and accepted. Personally since coming out I’ve never encountered any issues with homophobia or prejudices against me however sadly it still exists & happens to many people and across the world. Pride is important because we all need to support each other and stand up that we’re not second class and deserve to be treated the same as everyone else irrespective of our sexuality and how we identify ourselves. But until that happens, Pride will be around for many years to come.

Why do you love DSD at Pride so? I’m very excited to be playing the Lift Off Party on the Friday alongside Queen Josephine, David Ethics and the main man who brought DSD to my attention Chris Barker. I’ve never played DSD for Pride so it’s another first, but the vibe at my debut was amazing so just want to get stuck in and enjoy the atmosphere with everyone around.

Ultimate Pride Tune? Hmmm good question. This year I pick Soul Avengerz – Let Yourself Go (Gardy Remix)

Dirty or disco? Disco, It brings out the fun, the love and brings people together.

Sunrise or sunset? Sunrise, new day, new beginnings and a step closer to a better world (hopefully).

Catch Zach Burns at DSD Pride Lift Off! party. Friday 1st August, 8pm-late at Ohso Social, 250a Kings Road Arches, Brighton. Grab your Early Bird tickets here

DSD Quickie with Chris Brogan

imageA quickie with DJ Chris Brogan? How could we not? We are loving this saucy house boy with his deep, tech and classic edged grooves and can’t wait for him to bring his A:M., Beyond, Later, Edge Soho, Recon,  Salvation and Tonker rocking sounds to Ohso tonight. But first its time for a quickie. That always come first at DSD.

So what can the DSD clubbers expect from your set? An ecclectic mix of deep, tech and classic house.

Why is clubbing in Brighton so special? I have only experienced Brighton as a punter and have been amazed by what it has to offer in terms of sound and genres available. It has more variety at times than London keeping the beat uplifting which is just what my sound is about.

So what’s making you excited to be joining the DSD family tonight? First of all I’m extremely honoured to have been asked. It’s not only my DSD debut but also my first ever set in Brighton so the pressure is ON! Having heard nothing but amazing feedback about the night I cannot wait to bring my sound to the party. Some friends from London will be coming down to join me and discover DSD for the first time so we’re all very excited.

DSD is all about summertime – what summer plans have you got going on this year? I will be playing at Brighton Pride in the Men’s tent from 12-2 then I fly out straight to Ibiza to DJ that same night. Very excited!

Dirty or Disco? Dirty, the bassline always wins

Sunset or sunrise? Sunset, the night is about to begin and the music gets louder!

Catch Chris Brogan tonight at DSD alongside the regal Queen Josephine and the delicious David Ethics. Friday 25th July. Ohso Social, 250a Kings Road Arches, Brighton. 9pm-2am. Find us on Facebook. Find Chris Brogan here.
