Tonight we welcome Paul Heron across the river to play at Dalston Superstore! Well known to any circuit queen in Vauxhall, Paul joins us for Little Gay Brother Presents: Desert Island Dicks. Ahead of the party, we posed Paul a few questions to find out what’s in store for Superstore…!
You’re known for your Vauxhall residencies- but tell us, what DON’T people know about you?
I’m also working on developing a small East London based menswear label at the moment, and DJ wise I’m doing a lot of international events for some big international brands around Europe, Australia and South America.
One thing we already knew was that you’re Scottish… without getting too political- what outcome were you hoping for in terms of your motherland’s independance?
I’m glad it’s a resounding no vote! I was scared I was gonna become a refugee and need to seek gay asylum!
If Paul Heron was a cocktail, what alcohol would make it up and what mixers would we have to add?
Probably a shot of each and every available alchoholic substance known to man, mixed with a dash of passionfruit and lime… monkeys ruin!
What was the record (or DJ set) that made you want to be a DJ?
Sitting on the rocks in Ibiza listening to Danny Tenaglia’s Turn Me On when I was 17 was a real intense musical moment for me, then listening to Eric Morillo later that week playing X-press 2 – Music X-Press bootleg mix later that week were two defining moments for me!
If you had a time machine and could go back to any dancefloor anywhere/anywhen, where would you want to visit?
Studio 54 obviously, and to hear Larry Levan, Paradise Garage and Shelter. And perhaps one more dance on the Space terrace when it was outside!
Talk us through your Desert Island Dick costume for Saturday?
I’ve gone for a cock hungry voodoo priest/meets festival chic/meets carcrash in a facepainting stall vibe!
What are your fave queer parties around the world for work and play?
Panorama Bar in Berghain is my ultimate, also I love playing at Cavo Paradiso in Mykonos looking out over the cliff as the sun rises over the ocean, also my residency for La Demence as Thierry puts on a fucking mental party… DEBAUCHERY!
What’s the last album you listened to from beginning to end?
The XX- Young Turks and XX amazing albums!
You’re also a producer… what’s next out from you?
Hopefully an official remix of Danny Tenaglia’s Turn Me On. I wanted to go back in the studio to work on a track or remix I was really passionate about and thought the defining record that got me into dance music was an obvious choice, I’m just busy trying to arrange it!
