DJ MikeQ podcast #186 for XLR8R

“DJ MikeQ may not be a name that rings familiar for many XLR8R readers, but we have a pretty strong intuition that’s about to change. His name has been popping up in mixes from the likes of Kingdom and Bok Bok for awhile now, but a little digging has shown DJ MikeQ to be one of the leading figures of the East Coast’s long-running (but still largely underground) ballroom/vogue-house scene. Based in New Jersey, the 25-year-old producer is not only one of the most in-demand ballroom DJs, but he also heads up his own Qween Beat label and turns out a steady stream of vogue and ballroom tracks, re-edits, and remixes. We’ll be taking a much larger look at ballroom in the next issue of the magazine, but in the meantime, we’ve enlisted DJ MikeQ to assemble this exclusive mix and introduce himself (and by extension, the ballroom scene) to the XLR8R faithful. It’s an exciting listen; prepare yourself for lots of fierce/fabulous divas, blown-out snares, gritty sounds, and a seemingly incalculable number of tunes built upon a tiny loop from Masters at Work’s classic “The Ha Dance.””
