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.
