Saturday sees Bootylicious DJ Sugarbear join us in the top bar at Dalston Superstore for Bust Yo Nut! As resident for both Bootylicious at Club Colosseum and Carpet Burn at The Eagle, Sugarbear is sure to be a familiar face to those in the know. He joins Mistamaker this weekend for the best in old-skool r’n’b and hip hop. Ahead of the party we caught up with him to find out more about his bulging record bag!
You play a lot of different genres- but which do you feel most at home with?
When I started out DJing I was playing r’n’b and hip hop, so I guess that will always be my first love!
Whatever the night, whatever the genre, what is your guaranteed dancefloor killer?
Diana Ross – I’m Coming Out.
What was the first record you ever bought- honesty here please!
It actually was a good one. Le Freak by Chic. I did go on to buy many less cool records after though!
Who’s been the best guest or PA at Carpet Burn?
Well they had Denise from 5 Star a few weeks back and she was fabulous, but I would have to say Pete Burns!
It’s a pretty unashamed type of night- what is your fave track to belt out in a good behind-the-decks-singalong?
Jade – Don’t Walk Away.
Why do you think it’s important to have Vauxhall, Soho and Dalston as distinct queer nightlife areas in London?
Variety is the spice of life!
You playing old-skool hip hop and r’n’b here in the top bar at Superstore for Bust Yo Nut… what are your favourite tracks from both genres from the ’80s?
Well the ’90s is more my era, especially for r’n’b, but here are a few of my favourite ’80s tracks.
De la Soul – Me Myself And I
Run DMC – Peter Piper
Luther Vandross – Never Too Much
Michael Jackson – PYT
What will make you get up on the bar and DANCE?
A couple of pints, three tequila shots and Prince’s Controversy would get me on the bar dancing.
Join Sugarbear this Saturday 8th June at Dalston Superstore for Bust Yo Nut from 9pm – 3am.
