Ever wondered what happens between London and Brighton if you fancy a bit of a groove? Well here’s your answer. This month Queenie chats to DJ Waynsie Rude Boy who intends to move your dancing feet up Crawley way! Be prepared for some serious Saturday night wiggling ladies and gentlemen…….
Hello! What is your DJ name? DJ Waynsie Rude Boy.
Where can we see you playing these days? Every other Saturday for my night Dirty Pop at Bar 7 in Crawley.
How would you describe your djing style? Eclectic!!! I like to take people on a journey starting off with funky and soulful house followed by dance classics then mash ups and finishing off with a section of classy cheesy pop.
What’s your favourite song of all time? It’s virtually impossible to say as I have so many for different moods and times. But one of my all time fave dance tracks that I really think has it all and I never tire of is Robert Miles’ One And One…..it always gives me goose-bumps! Best pop track for me is Madonna’s Express Yourself (Shep Pettibone Mix)
Which tune always fills up (or rescues) your dancefloor? Depends on the venue but at Dirty Pop guaranteed floor fillers are Madonna’s Like A Prayer or Rhianna vs Faithless Only Girl In Insomnia.
What would be your ultimate dream gig? Opening the doors to Studio54 or The Blitz again for a no holds barred, all-nighter!
Name a tune you wish you’d never played (and why!)? Gangnam Style by PSY….. due to pressure outside the booth, honest! But it abused all that I’m about as I hate it. It felt bad that I buckled to pressure and played something that made me feel sick and didn’t fit in with my set. I feel DJs are working their art form and are not juke boxes. Let them do their thing and enjoy the ride.
Guilty pleasure? 80’s Pop and Movie Soundtracks!
What’s been your best ever gig? Season Close at The Point in Zante, Greece. Seeing the crowd responding with passion to the musical journey I had selected for the night in all the right places was truly amazing. There’s nothing like seeing both arms up with tune adoration everywhere in front of you!
Tell us a secret! I’m not loving Madonna’s Rebel Heart Album like I should and I feel terrible for it!
