Queenie gets loved up with Lady Lola

It’s June dear reader, that sparkling month of sunshine (I hope) and the desire to dance and prance!!! This month, I catch back up with the irrepressible and gorgeous Lady Lola to hear about her current deck action.

Hello, how are you? I’m doing great thanks. Managing to juggle being a mummy and a DJ quite well! Haha!

You seem to be a busy lady – where can we see/hear you playing? I’ve had so many amazing opportunities already this year and it’s only June! I’ve landed myself a residency at one of Brighton’s best underground nights- Berlin at the Green Door Store. And I still host my weekly radio show on every Saturday 8pm-10pm plus I’ve got lots of gigs coming up in Brighton & London and even some festivals! I just did Nightshift all day party at The Tempest and upcoming I’m playing Noisily Festival, Leicestershire 7-10th July and Electric Battlefields Festival at Newhaven Fort 22nd July.

What music is rocking Lola’s world these days? Techno!!! I went to Berlin recently. And went to a night hosted by Stil Vor Talent. It was incredible!!!! I saw lots of DJs and producers that I admire and for me, the night was very musically enlightening.

What’s so good about playing in Brighton just now? Brighton has turned a corner in terms of music and clubbing. There are lots of independent promoters putting on great underground nights, and using alternative venues as well as the usual go to clubs. With the combination of promoters being passionate about music, great local talent and everyone supporting each other, this ultimately other means the music scene in Brighton has been thriving over the last year.

It seems amazing (is someone speeding up the months?) but Brighton Pride isn’t far away. It’s a bit early to ask about this year’s plans I know, but do you have any stand out memories from last year? For me, every year it’s playing the closing set in the Girls Tent in Preston ParkDjing in front of a home crowd of 5000+ is an amazing feeling!

Your little boy is a year old now – is he developing a love for all things ‘house’? He absolutely LOVES music! There is always music playing at home. Whether it’s house, Techno or lots of old skool tunes– like funk, Prince and even Frank Sinatra!

What’s your guilty pleasure? I’ve got too many to list! Hahaha!!

Describe yourself in three words! Compassionate. Vivacious. Whirlwind

Silver Home Service now on Mixcloud

A pleasure to produce our Silver Home Service is a celebration of you guys. The wonders that made our past 25 years behind the decks of brighton’s clubland such a joy.

Picking just an hour of tunes to reflect that love was a difficult one but the attempt was made. Be it the Shameless Hussies flirt fest that was Teddy Pendergrass’ The More I Get, The More I Want, the Candy Bar corker that was The Pound Boys remix of Angie Stone’s Wish I Didn’t Miss You, our relationship defining favourite Madonna tune, the disco delight that made our Horse Meat Disco wiggles courtesy of Fern Kinney, the Wild Fruit anthem that is Kathy Sledge’s Another Star, the Audio / Patterns perfection that is Thomas Gandey & Maxxi Soundsystem’s Yes You Do It,  the addictive beats of the Rebel, Schtumm, Floorplay, Blow and Bang‘s sizzler Let’s Dance by Cajmere & Russoul, the spacey tinkling, disco shaped love we have for Cerrone’s Supernature, the Sunday Sundae roof raiser that is Riva Star’s Paradise Garage Remix of Dennis Ferrer’s Hey Hey or Hifi Sean’s Brighton Pride goosebump inducing vocal dub of Mantronix’s 77 Strings, each have a very special place in our heart.

Thanks to you. A glorious part of our family, our lives and our 25 years behind the decks. 25 years we couldn’t of done without all you promoters, fellow DJs, hostesses, performers and dancefloor wonders. Thanks for making it so. And here’s to the next, ahem, 25 years.

Wildblood + Queenie’s May Gscene Wonders

We’re feeling fabulously frisky this festival month with a soundtrack strictly celebratory this May as we spring the good stuff on you. Just add these beauties to your life and the sun is guaranteed to shine. Be it the enchanting Afro and minimal house of South African wonders C-Major’s The Link on Atal Music, the adventure inspiring Shanghai by College on Invada Records, or the soulful hip hop of Liz Aku’s Ankhor on Sonar Kollektiv, life will always sound better with them onboard.

Add some deft dancefloor grooves from Knee Deep In Sounds Miami 2017 sampler, Leftroom’s cheeky The Extended Family Miami Edition, Michael Mayer’s quirky cute DJ Kicks compilation on !K7 and the ode to our old raving days that is Luke Vibert Presents UK Garave Vol.1 on Hypercolour and you have beats worth bouncing to.

Especially if you mix in our albums of the month. Nothing sounds finer this May than the brilliant fabric93 : SoulClap, no grooves more uplifting than Defected presents House Masters Jazz-N-Groove on Defected Records (we can’t get enough!) and no Record Day exclusive vinyl remix project more desirable than Hifi Sean’s FT. Excursions on Plastique Recordings. So there you have it. Your music addiction sorted for May. Just as it should be. Enjoy.
