HORSE MEAT DISCO

December 7, 2018

POOF DOOF – A GAY CLUB FOR ALL – PRESENTS A HOUSE PARTY OF GRATUITOUS PROPORTIONS WITH VERY SPECIAL INTERNATIONAL GUESTS:
HORSE MEAT DISCO (UK)

Initially established in 2004 in London, Horse Meat Disco has evolved into a powerful force in queer and club culture. Co-founded by James Hillard and Jim Stanton, and encompassing residents Severino and Luke Howards, the crew continue to maintain not only the weekly Sunday party, but a number of residencies in cities across the world, alongside a kaleidoscope of club appearances, festival dates and specially curated mixes.

Taking inspiration from a diverse, counter-cultural history of clubs and DJs, as well as from the sprawling, ever-expanding musical collections of it’s resident crew, the sound of HMD is impossible to place. Nonetheless their style is undeniable. Rooted in hedonism, rhythm, freedom and emotion, a Horse Meat Disco set reinforces everything invigorating about disco, as comfortable as shattering old-school mirror ball cliches as basking in their light.

A typical HMD set blends classics, italo disco, house, oddities and punk funk. They have made appearances on every notable club scene in the modern world, as well as those beyond, and have long been a key fixture at festivals including GlastonburyBestival and Festival No.6.

After decades of crate digging, globetrotting and partying, the HMD story continues apace. 2017 also saw the crew record their long-awaited contribution to BBC Radio 1’s ‘Essential Mix’, as well as their first joint foray into production, ‘Waiting For You To Call’, featuring Roy Inc., and released on their own, self-titled imprint. They are currently working on new music to be released with Glitterbox, with the new single ‘Let’s Go Dancing’ released in December 2018.

SUPPORTED BY:
Sydney Mardi Gras headliner BUTCH LE BUTCH
Long after America declared that was disco was dead it was still going strong in Melbourne, Australia where a young impressionable mind began soaking up everything disco had to offer. Butch le butch was born in a world where disco records were plentiful and the making of record/pause mixtapes was king.

After early forays into Melbourne’s house music scene, where Butch cut his teeth playing at various clubs such as The Lounge, 44 & Freakazoid, he found himself gravitating to music that was arm in arm with his disco roots. From deep throbbing bass lines to soaring string filled moments of ecstasy if the song was respectful to its disco roots it was right at home in Butch’s sets.

It wasn’t long before he turned his hand to remixing and re-edits where, along with producing tracks of his own, he reworked tracks by disco legends such as MFSB, The Trammps, Chic & Stephanie Mills as well as highly popular reworks of tracks by Dolly Parton, Madonna and the Jacksons.

With a penchant for all things disco from the serious to the senseless Butch’s sets are packed full of long forgotten gems and dared to be played boogie monsters.
