Queenie B meets Tony B

As autumn pokes it’s head around the corner, it’s time to get your wiggle on with the fabulous Tony B……

Hello Tony, how are you? I’m great, thanks! After a turbulent year things are all really positive at the moment!


It’s been ages since we talked so please remind us where we can catch you playing? I’m in Doctor Brighton’s every Saturday except once each month where I am in Charles St.


Are there any new projects in your life? I’ve started working in partnership with Decadance promoting some new nights.

What kind of music are you playing these days? I’m still a crowd DJ playing familiar and loved tracks and more recently I find myself including deeper and funkier sounds in my set.

Always a tricky question, but what’s your favourite song of all time? That is a tricky question however I always loved Everyday by Agnelli and Nelson and with some more recent electro and deeper remixes, I’m happy to still say that as its standing the test of time with me!

Which tune always fills up (or rescues) your dancefloor? Currently that’s Who Is He? by Alai & Gallo feat. Kevin Haden, it’s such a funky, uplifting tune, I always see loads of people Shazamming it when it’s on!  Although someone should tell them you don’t have to hold your phone in the air towards the speaker to Shazam a song! J

What’s so good about playing in Brighton? Brighton’s diversity!  Every night brings such a variety of characters and sights, you never know what you’re going to get, and that includes the regulars! I can honestly say DJing in this city makes me prouder to be Brighton born and bred!

What would be your ultimate dream place to DJ and what’s been your favourite ever gig? On the terrace at Space in Ibiza! My favourite was the Love Muscle birthday night at the Fridge in Brixton, 2000 people with their hands in the air is a feeling that’s hard to top!

Name a tune you wish you’d never played ? Now that’s the hardest question of them all!  I think every DJ can remember the regret songs, they happen to us all now and again….. Once I made a massive mistake though. I was queuing up a tune I can’t remember, and setting up a loop in my headphones whilst an act was on the stage. I didn’t realise the fader was up and it could be heard over the top of her singing – she had to come over and whack my arm! Oops!

Describe yourself in three words…A big kid!

Wildblood & Queenie’s (delayed) October Wonders

As the summer bids us farewell (sorry we’ve been so distracted by the Brighton Snowdogs to get this published) it seems only right that we generate as much heat as we can from some autumn wonders bound to keep you warm and wiggling till winter comes.

First up is the beauty that is AFFKT’s Son Of A Thousand Sounds on Sincopat, a true treasure of genre busting tracks that delivers timeless techno, house, beats, pop and electronica. Nice. As is Cabanne’s Discopathy on Minibar with it’s jazz fuelled minimal house beats, the enchanting sounds of Roman Flügel’s All The Right Noises on Dial Records and the majestic category busting sounds of Demuir’s TruSkool on Magnetic Recordings.

As for our cor blimey how did we managed without those? longplayers MadTech Amsterdam 2016 Mixed by The Golden Boy on MadTech Records with tracks from Waze & Odyssey, Cera Alba, Bontan and Jojo Angel & Mattero Rosolare brings the best of the Birmingham producer to the heart of Holland whilst Tuff City Kids’ Adoldesscent on Permanent Vacation will put a zing in your heart and skip in your step with its playful electronica, breezy vibes and occasional nods to the 80s. And if that isn’t enough then grab a downtempo, hip hop, west coast jazzy flavors and Latin grooves session with Funkyloco’s Rolling With My Homies on So Sound Recordings. Nothing will keep the sun shining long believe us. Enjoy.

Hifi Sean July #5

Queenie is lost without Hifi Sean

Queenie catches up with the fabulous DJ, songwriter & all around hero Hifi Sean as he gets set to release his achingly wonderful new longplaying electronic, psychedelic soulful adventure Ft. on Plastique Recordings……

How are you mister Hifi? I’m in fine fettle despite terrible jet lag! I’ve been in West Coast USA DJing – I even won $1.50 in Las Vegas (living the high life!).

We missed you at Brighton Pride, though your tune ‘Lost Without You’ ft Paris Grey absolutely blew the roof off every time it was played!!! Tell us about your current musical projects? I was in Atlanta that day and kept seeing posts about the track – I felt so far away and wished I had been there to enjoy it all with my friends. The track is from my album released this month called ‘Hifi Sean – Ft.’ where I have collaborated with some of my fave artists Crystal Waters, Yoko Ono, Billie Ray Martin, Fred Schneider (B-52’s), Bootsy Collins , David McAlmont and many more . It has been a huge two year labour of love that has taken me to many cities around the world to record. It is an electronic psychedelic soul album that starts off euphoric and starts to slowly unwind into darker territories. A true concept album from start to finish, rather than just a playlist randomly put together!!!


How would you describe your djing style? I am great believer that djing should be just an extension of your musical tastes and then its an honest form of love, maybe what I play can be quite eclectic (hate that word) but then again your taste is the one thing that joins all those dots together.

What’s your favourite song of all time? It has to be T-Rex’s Get It On – the first record I loved as a child.  Showing off, I once worked with Mickey Finn from T-Rex and he knew it was my fave record. He gave me his actual pristine picture sleeve 7” – it was second off the pressings to Marc Bolan’s! Such a treasured possession.

Which tune always fills up (or rescues) your dancefloor? Hamilton Bohanon Let’s Start The Dance if you can’t lose it to that then please give up!

What would be your ultimate dream gig (?At the top of the Atomium in Brussels , I wrote a track on the album with Bootsy Collins about the Atomium . To say I am slightly obsessed by the structure is an understatement .And oh yeah Ibiza, crazy thing is I have never spun there.

Name a tune you wish you’d never played ? I found this bootleg remix of a Kylie record and spent hours editing out all the vocal as the backing track was a killer production. Later I was playing a deep sexy house set and dropped it – only to find I’d burnt the wrong version and Kylie was singing one of her pop hits……all 800 people on the floor stopped and stared at me!!!

Wildblood + Queenie’s September Wonders

So here it is, that month we’ve been dreading. The post-Pride bump that is September. But fret not Wildblood and Queenie are here with a soundtrack so sizzling you’ll be feeling the Pride summer rays till October. Honest.

First up is the magnificent Gerd Janson as he explores the space between cosmic disco and acid house on fabric 89. An absolute rocket of a compilation that will have you spun out and spacey all month long. As will the superb The Black 80s’ Heart to Art on Sonar Kollektiv with their kooky Canadian house, System of Survival’s Chicago and Detroit infused sounds of D-Votion on Get Physical Music and the muscular disco synth wonder that is Golden Bug’s V.I.C.T.O.R on La Belle. As Soulsearcher kind of put it we can’t get enough.

Also keeping us grinning through the last days of summer are the delights that is Ibized 2016 by David Penn on Urbana Recordings, it’s all about house music don’t you know, and the sweet melodies of Hidden Turn’s The Ride on 31 Recordings. Feeling the love.

As we shall always for these two final beauties. Bryan Ferry’s Avonmore The Remixes on BMG will ensure your Ferry addiction is fed with excellence courtesy of PBR Streetgang, Leftside Wobble and more whilst the divine Hifi Sean’s FT on Plastique Recordings with it’s electronic and psychedelic soul will charm the disco pants off ya as the man reveals his genius touch yet again to create a contender for longplayer of the year. Enjoy.

Queenie gets her Guy (Williams)

Just in case it had escaped your notice, there’s a little celebration coming up in Brighton this month. But with such a marvellous wealth of fun to be found from the streets to the park to the bars and the clubs, deciding where to go and who to see can sometimes leave you feeling a bit discombobulated!!! However, as this Brighton Pride welcomes the return of one of the brightest and best DJs the world has to offer, there’s one gorgeous man you simply have to make the time to hear. Queenie catches up with him……..

Hello Mr Williams, how are you? Very well my dear thank you, just about recovered from the best Glastonbury yet and Croatia playing at Electric Elephant Festival.

Where can we usually see you playing, and where can we catch you at Brighton Pride? My current residencies are Le Coq and Blockheads at East Bloc, Savage Disco, Sketch and Soho House Group all in London. Brighton Pride I’ll be playing at Handsome Vs Queer Nation at the wonderful Patterns and then at Sunday Sundae on the terrace at the same venue.

For the one person who hasn’t heard you, please describe your DJ style! Low slung hip shakin’ jackin funk!

Do you have a favourite Pride track and which tune or tunes will you definitely be playing this year? Mmmmmmmmmm. Not a fave Pride track as such but I will be playing Red Rack‘em Wonky Baseline Disco Banger!

What are you most looking forward to this Pride? I haven’t played for a few years so looking forward to seeing everyone again, bringing some jackin’ handsome vibes at Handsome and you can’t beat that terrace on the Sunday! Our own little bit of DC10 in Brighton!

Do you have any marvellous Brighton Pride memories to share? Playing on the float for Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation for 2 years running was pretty special, and every Wild Fruit Tent and Sunday Sundae gig…..

What’s been your favourite ever gig?  Difficult question but probably closing the terrace at Space for We Love Sundays in 2012!

What would be your ultimate dream gig? DC10 Terrace!

And finally Mr Williams please describe yourself in 3 words. Give. Give. Give.
