Wildblood + Queenie’s April Gscene Wonders

However fleeting, that’s sunshine peeking through the clouds promising a summer of love and we reckon its time to prepare with some April wonders. First up is the must hear low-down shady slo-mo beats of Greymatter’s No Blood Without on Unique Uncut Records. Quality. As are the ever mind expanding adventures of electro, new wave, and EBM Hamburg heroine Helena Hauff’s A Tape on Dark Entries, the bleeps and beeps of Tenacity 2017 and the funk fuelled session that is Rebirth 10 (Remixed) on Rebirth. Girl those grooves are fine.

Also ticking our April box this month is the Tooting brilliance of Soulnaturals Love Says Yes! on British Soul Standard, the sublime sonic sensation that is Greg Gow’s Lost Days on Social Experiment Records and the twisted dancefloor delights of 
Anthony Parasole’s Infrared Vision 
on Dekmantel UFO.

Add our April besties courtesy of Terry Francis’ tech house opus Together on Hallucienda, Chopstick & Johnjon’s exquisite Reviewed 01 on Suol and the divine Hector Romero’s Weaving Genres on Nervous Records and yes, as Bourgie Bourgie sings, we are living the life. Enjoy.

A regal moment with DJ OLi Leslie

Now March is upon us those nights out are beckoning more than ever! This month Queenie catches up with the gorgeous DJ OLi Leslie, a fella who is sure to put the spring in your step as you hop onto your nearest dancefloor!

Where can we see/hear you playing? I DJ all over the South East of England with regular slots at Thirteen in Guildford, Anjelique Bar in Horsham, Pryzm in Brighton, Unit 7 in Basildon and Club Chemistry in Canterbury.

What kind of music do you play? Very open format / multi genre. I really like to mix things up over the course of a set. If I had to choose one genre over the course of a night it would be house music.

Always a tricky question, but what’s your favourite song of all time? Haha good question, it’s always hard to pick just one as a favourite song is not always about the song itself, it’s about the memories it comes with!!! But I guess my true favourite is Infinity 2008 by Guru Josh Project.

What’s so good about playing in Brighton? It’s very diverse with people and clubs so it’s got a lot of choice and a lot to offer both to the customers and DJs. Plus everyone just seems happier down here.

What would be your ultimate place to DJ and what has been your favourite ever gig? I’m a big fan of playing at festivals and I’d love to do more. Dream would be to play at Creamfields or V-fest – mega-dream would be Ultra or Tomorrowland. My favourite gig would have to be the Exit Festival in Serbia I did last summer. The fact that half way through my set Guetta starting playing on the main stage made me worried people would leave…… But we still kept a packed out crowd.

Name a tune you wish you’d never played and why! If you mean one I put on that I instantly regretted then fortunately that hasn’t really happened. I played a current drum and bass track called Bricks Rolling when I was at Club Chemistry in Canterbury. Normally that song can give some serious crowd hype. However, despite hundreds of people on the dance floor only about 5 went nuts. Didn’t take me long to mix in the next song. However, this question has two meanings to me because I thought it meant a song I wish I never had to play but did! Anyway, that would be Shout Out To My Ex by Little Mix. Think the whole time that track was popular I only ever played it at the end of a night once due to popular demand. I personally wasn’t a fan!

What’s your guilty pleasure? I have many guilty pleasures. Love a bit of cheese and classics all the way up to a dirty bassline, but I don’t feel guilty about them at all. So they are just pleasures.

Describe yourself in three words! Tall, friendly, weird

Queenie minces round the Xmas tree with DJ Josh The Barber

With that darned Festive Season around again forcing you to have the occasional night away from the dancefloor in order to stylishly erect your decorations, sometimes it’s good to do a spot of dancing at home. So in between wrapping up the odd gift, swigging a yuletide snifter and munching on a mincie there’s some arse shaking to be done. But what to rock around your Xmas tree to??? This month Queenie catches up with the lovely Josh The Barber to find the answer…….

Hi there Josh – it’s been a while! Where can we hear your marvellous melodies these days? Well I’m not DJing out much at the moment – I’m having a bit of time away from that side of things. So currently I am concentrating on music production and more DJ mixes for Mixcloud. To hear what I’m up to, check out joshthebarber on Mixcloud.

Always a tricky question, but what is your favourite tune of all time? Oh I’ve got lots of favourites, though Make My Love by Shawn Christopher always gives me goose-bumps.

What sort of music is floating your boat just now? I love nu disco and deeep house at the moment.

What do you think is particularly good about playing out in Brighton? Despite my current DJing break, I still love playing in Brighton as people are up for a great night out!!! Though it has to be said, the scene has changed a lot over the last few years……

Has there been a gig or mix that you’ve done recently that has stood out for you? I really enjoyed playing the Brighton Bear Weekender at the Latest Bar back in June. It was a very busy and fun night!

Name a track you wish you’d never played! I’m afraid to say I played a tune called Some Girls by Racey at my friends wedding. I hung my head in shame…..and so did everybody else lol!!!!

What would be your ultimate dream gig? I absolutely love DJing in the men’s tent at Brighton Pride. I feel very honoured to be asked to do it. So I think my ultimate gig would be to play a later set, when the party really gets going.
