Kris Baha

By Ranks

For the latest instalment of rhinestone-encrusted disco bash Cult Culture, the Bristolian partystarters have recruited Power Station mastermind Kris Baha! The Berlin-based DJ, producer and label boss has garnered a cult-status following transcendental sets in the Cocktail D’Amore cosmic hole as well as throbbing EBM releases on his own Power Cuts label. It’s high time we welcomed him to the lazerhole to serve up a slice of his trademark mind-bending body music. Cult Culture promoter and resident DJ Ranks caught up to chat career highlights, unsung talent and plans for the rest of 2017!

We are hyped to have you join us for PLU’s Cult Culture party! You’ve been super busy over the last couple of years; what with a move from your hometown of Melbourne to Berlin, together with the label and a number of great releases – what have been a few of your highlights?

Thank you, I am equally as excited to be joining! It’s been a funny three year transition but I am finally cemented here in Berlin. Some highlights for me have been Salon Des Amateurs last month with Theme For Great Cities‘ Rearview Radio, Aki Aki and an impromptu b2b2b2b with Tolouse Low Trax. I also played at a festival called Ant Bangos run by the Opium Crew out of Vilnius which is on the Baltic Sea beach front (literally on the sand) and down in the cosmic hole last year at Cocktail D’Amore in Berlin.  

A record that perfectly sums up these highlights?

Tell us about your relationship with the legendary Berlin based, gay party Cocktail D’Amore crew?

It happened pretty organically which is something I go with a lot. From afar in Melbourne (pre-Berlin transition) I was already a fan of the label and knew about the party and then had some people I knew playing there who relayed that it is exactly like it’s reputation – wild and musically open. We also tried to book Discodromo for our party Power Station in 2014 but we postponed it until 2015. Coincidentally some demos of mine were sent to the DD guys in early 2015 and this was about the same time we put out our first record on Power Cuts which they really liked and then the rest, as they say is …. 

One of the reasons we’ve invited you to play for our Cult Culture party is your eclectic taste and your ability and willingness to weave disco, industrial, punk and house into your sets.  With house becoming ever more popular in the mainstream, do you think there is an appetite in the underground for more than just your standard house and four to the floor? Has there been an emergence of music that looks to challenge what we have become used to as the usual rhythms of dance music?

Sure, I think people are becoming much more open… Well I hope so, otherwise I am out of a job!

If so, are there any records that perfectly encapsulates this?

Here are some I have enjoyed playing out:

Favourite record of 2017 so far?

I don’t have favourites, but some reissues and OG music I’ve been listening to a lot that were released this year are

Esplendor Geometrico’s – Fluida Mekaniko on Geomtetric 

S/M Nurse on Domestica 

Khidja’s Microb incl TLT Remixes on Malka Tuti. 

Modern Art – Stereoland on No Coat

Nv – Binasu on Mind Japan

The Resident Advisor top 100 DJs poll has just regurgitated a very similar list to last year and the year before – if you could turn the spotlight onto some unsung artists, who would they be and why?

As they always do 😉

Artists who I think have saddled around the rodeo for some time as well as some up-and-comers are Tolouse Low Trax, Vladimir Ivkovic, Lena Wilikens, Jan Schulte, DJ Normal 4 also Dane//Close, Zozo, Allesandro Adriani, Elena ColombiDon’t DJ, Alexis Le Tan, Odopt.

As we head into the festival season and the half way mark of the year, what exciting plans are in the pipeline?

I’ll be playing live again which I have been eager to get back into since my departure from band world – I have an experimental industrial duo thing happening with Niklas Wandt who is a very talented drummer. Also I have my other project with Dreems which is called Die Orangen and we’ll be playing live at Monticule Festival France in June and our LP Zest will be coming out on Malka Tuti mid year which we are pretty psyched about. Short of that, you will see a Kris Baha EP on Cocktail D’Amore very soon, another Power Cuts release, a new label series merging Power Cuts and Bahnsteig23 as Power23, a release on Pinkmann Records, more output from Power Station and the Power Cuts Label and I’ll try and sleep at some point as well.  

Talking about festivals… Which dance bomb do you have in your bag that you can’t wait to unleash in the sunshine?

In five words, what do you have in store for Cult Culture?

Dark energy waves of sweat 

Catch Kris Baha at PLU presents Cult Culture this Saturday 3 June from 9pm-3am at Dalston Superstore! 


Founder of the wonderfully named Dick Slap night and Editor in Chief of Nark Magazine from far-flung Seattle, DJ Nark joins us for his Superstore debut this bank holiday Sunday for a bite of Battered Sausage! In between the magazine and running nights across Seattle, including Bottom Forty, DJ Nark has found time to pop over to Europe, see the sights and play all the coolest queer parties the continent has to offer. So ahead of Sunday night’s sausage fun we caught up with him to find out more about the delights of Dickslap, the delights of the Pacific Northwest and the delights of Nark himself…

You’re Editor In Chief of Nark Magazine (as well as Nark being your name!)… How did Nark come about?

When I moved to Seattle it was even more off the map then it still is now, and it was really cool to me to see people expressing themselves in such crazy ways on the street or at punk shows or parties or whatever, even though they weren’t living in a city where they would get “seen” or “discovered.” I wanted to give them the attention they deserved, and I wanted to document it out of appreciation and so the world could see it, whether it be immediately or generations from now. Also I was fed up with trying to be a graphic designer and decided I was just gonna do whatever the fuck I wanted and see how it went. Originally Nark Mag was going to be a street fashion blog, but then I started photographing the night life scene, and everything evolved from there. 

Take us out on a big gay date in Seattle- where are we eating, where are you getting us drunk, and where are we dancing after?

Well, let’s say it’s summer, because if it’s winter we’re mostly inside watching a fireplace screen saver on tv. We’ll pack a bag full of champagne and egg sandwiches from Homegrown and head down to lake Washington to lay on the docks with speedo-clad homo’s going for dips in the lake until we’re fully sunburned, followed by a gourmet version of American diner food at Skillet on Capitol Hill, and then go for Moscow Mule’s at my favorite bar Montana with locally made Rachel’s Ginger Beer. As for dancing? The options are endless, if it’s Sunday we’re definitely hitting Flammable at ReBar, a house music weekly that’s been going for 15+ years, we call it church and it’s amazing. Any other night there’s The Eagle for high quality slutting, you can see some major players on Thursday nights at Q, after hours at The Monkey Loft or a warehouse party, or dance like crazy in a maze of repurposed train cars turned Chinese restaurant/karaoke club/occasional dance party known as Train Car House Party.

What track do you play to get the boys to take their tops off?

Lately I’ve been obsessing over Furfriend, it’s a bit campy and doesn’t work for just any party, but when the lyrics come in from this song it’s just TOO GOOD.

You’re originally from San Diego correct? How did a nice boy like you end up running all things queer up in Seattle?

I actually grew up in a weird cow town turned super suburbia south of Sacramento but moved to San Diego when I was 18. San Diego is so creatively stifling, stagnant and conservative that after four years I fled to Seattle, ready for anything, anything but San Diego! All that pent up energy plus an instant love for Seattle’s whacky characters and eccentric vibes culminated into pushing for more and more weirdness. I didn’t intend to “run things” but I guess I’m a bit of a control freak, and there was this wide open space just begging for it. Now Seattle’s nightlife is saturated with queers and crazies and I consider it to be one of the most high quality scenes in terms of diversity, programming and fantastic clubs and venues. 

Dickslap is an amazing name for a night- is there a fun origin story for that?

It’s sort of the story to end all party stories as Dickslap started as a political movement against the homophobic oppression laid down by the state liquor board, we decided to break all the rules including the conventionality of party names, you can read all about it here in Vice Magazine.

Your posters are always on point. Especially the recent memorable one featuring everyone’s favourite Facebook sticker Pusheen. Who comes up with the ideas, how do they come into being?

My background is in design and so I create 99% of our posters and everything, while outsourcing occasionally to the fantastic Ian O’Phelan in LA when I’m too slammed. Dickslap posters always start with hours of browsing gay porn on Google contemplating, “hmmm, perhaps if I turn that ass into a cake… Or maybe this one he’s seeking buried treasure in his hole…” and so forth and every single time I can’t imagine coming up with another idea even stupider than the last, but something always comes about, even now when I have to make around 30 per year. The important part is to not take yourself so seriously, and perv up ANYTHING you can, celebrities, video games, even Pusheen (who I also made a leather daddy version of a while back…), the serious part is about the music, but I get bored of serious music parties with overly serious and even depressing art direction, even the deepest techno can be fun.

You’re joining us here at Superstore for Battered Sausage on bank holiday Sunday with Discodromo. Exciting! If you were putting together a Memorial Day party in Seattle who would you program on the lineup from local hero Djs to big name foreign bookings to drag queens and dancers?

In Seattle, the biggest group of clubbers on a three day weekend is gay dudes and hot daddies, so if I could I’d have Horse Meat Disco of course, teamed up with my crew of dance floor destroyers Bottom Forty, and I’d have BenDelaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon picking out which daddies get to skip the line via a pit-sniffing test (they love that shit, so don’t wear deodorant). Actually I may have already done this exact party.

Looking through the photos on Nark Mag there’s queer guys and girls of all persuasions- describe Seattle’s inclusivity for us…

The Pacific Northwest is the utopia for outcasts and weirdos who also double as fierce party machines, and the nightlife scene is so diverse between what is definable and non-definable variations of gender and sexuality, but also what makes it tick is the strong bridges between the quote on quote gay and straight crowds, which is usually difficult in most cities, but Seattle seems to live and breathe as one entity (at least in the happy underground love vibing scene, we do still have that bridge and tunnel bottle service aggro bro scene, but who doesn’t). 

You’re currently on a pretty snazzy euro-tour… what’s the best or most interesting queer space you’ve visited or played at so far on your trip?

So far the Coxy party in Warsaw, I’m told it’s basically the only gay party in Warsaw so the fags come out in troves. Also the venue, Nowa Jerozalima, used to be a children’s hospital so it’s several floors of dirty, dingy ass creepiness and I loved it. 

Sum up for us why the US needs marriage equality…

Because gay dudes deserve to lose half their shit in a divorce too. Plus it’ll eventually spark a remake of Dynasty and The Golden Girls with an all gay cast, and if that isn’t social justice I don’t know what is.

Join Nark for Battered Sausage this bank holiday Sunday 24th May from 9pm – 4.30am.

Jeffrey Sfire

Detroit DJ Jeffrey Sfire joins us here at Superstore for an extra special European date in between playing at Panorama Bar and at Lab.oratory in Berlin. With a love of all things hi-NRG, Italo, ’80s, Chicago house; Jeffrey’s sets span genres and gets gay men dancing across the world’s discotheques. He’ll be flexing his disco muscles next Saturday for Little Gay Brother’s Locker Room down in the laser pit with Vauxhall babes Maze & Masters.

Having discovered Detroit’s underground warehouse scene at 15, moved to Chicago at 18 and having lived in Berlin, Jeffrey has finely tuned both his music taste and DJing style to suit banging clubs, sleazy afterhours and gay discos, and that’s all in addition to releasing productions under the Sfire name with Samuel Long on Discodromo’s celebrated Cocktail D’Amore label. Ahead of the Little Gay Locker Room we chatted to Jeffrey about his secret past as a restauranteur, going on dates and why everyone loves hi-NRG again…

The theme of the party here at Superstore is Locker Rooms. What’s the naughtiest thing you’ve ever got up to in a locker room?

A boring old BJ.

That’s not boring! That’s naughty!

But it’s not as exciting as it could be.

Tell us what happened.

Oh no wait; I have a good locker room story. It’s not naughty though. My biggest crush in high school, one year in fitness class, had his locker next to mine and it was kinda unbelievable haha. Nothing naughty ever happened but… no I’ve never really gotten up to too much in a locker room.

You’re super influenced by the ’80s- what did you look like then and what kind of music were you listening to… tell us about 80s Jeffrey!

Well I think a lot of my musical influence comes from riding around in my mom’s car listening to pop music.

Mum Jams.

Yeah totally. And I had a little afro because I had really curly hair. She used to make me have this little golden-brown afro which was cute. Oh and my mom used to make me model in department store runway shows! Which is pretty adorable!

I always go back to my mom’s, listening to pop music in her car…. like Madonna, and Wham, just early ‘80s pop. Just radio hits, but back then it was all synthesisers and drum machines, and it was all dancey stuff so it really appealed to me.

If you’d been in your early 20s in the ‘80s, what music do you think you’d have been into of your own accord though?

I don’t know, I always wonder that. You never know… you could have found something else totally interesting. I always wonder what people then thought about the ‘80s music I listen to now. Some people say Italo disco was like trance in the ‘80s. Certainly when dance music from the ‘70s to the ‘80s became more electronic, there were so many musicians that totally disregarded it because they thought it was soulless. Um, I don’t know. I hope I would have been into the same dance music! The Chicago taste, and the Detroit taste really appealed to me, which was mixing everything together- from disco to house to pop to freestyle- all that stuff, just mixing it all together and dancing. I think the New York sound was a little more Afro for me… but then I also think ‘would I have been really New Wave?’ like the Liquid Sky soundtrack kinda music. But I think being in the Midwest especially; it’s humble and more about having fun than being fashion.

Back to baby Jeffrey… you were going to warehouse parties in Detroit from the age of 15. What are your formative rave memories?

It’s funny because I just moved back to Detroit and I’ll pass some burnt out warehouse and be like “didn’t we party there?!” I just remember when I was coming up I was so interested in DJing and so many of my older friends were DJs and I was all about just soaking it in, learning by watching and going to see as much music and different styles as I could. I was so excited. I grew up in a suburb that’s very Old Money, kinda posh and conservative, so getting to escape on the weekends and go to these crazy parties, with tonnes of queer people and all these older people too, so there was all these freedom. It was everything.

But mostly for me it was about watching DJs. There’s so many good DJs here, and so many good styles.

Who are some of the first DJs you saw around that time?

One of my favourites is this guy called D. Wynn. He’s an older Detroit guy, along the same time period as Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. But he like didn’t become mega famous. I think he’s one of the best DJs from Detroit ever though. He had a really cool style. Also Mike Huckaby was a huge influence, just in his DJ style. And some of my friends that I hung out with all the time, like this guy Derek Plaslaiko who lives in Berlin now. Him, and some other people, I would watch them all the time, and pick up on their styles. I think they had a huge influence on my taste. I think Detroit has a really specific taste. I mean even between Detroit, New York and Chicago, even other cities, I feel like each has a very specific taste. I’m really grateful to be from here, and picked up that, y’know.

Why do you think hi-NRG making such a resurrgence this year?

Because everyone who is like 20 wasn’t sick of it eight years ago! Because they were 14 haha! Honestly, I was at a house party the other day, and this girl that had to have been like 21, she put Spacer Woman on. She was like “Oh.My.God. you guys, listen to this song! It was made in like ’81!!” and she put it on and I was like “You have got to be kidding me. You’re not like totally sick of this song??” She said “I’VE NEVER LIKE HEARD THIS BEFORE!!”

It was just resissued by Dark Entries…

Oh well that’s probably why. I was in San Francisco too. Well that makes sense. Hahaha! It is funny though, because things like that pop up and you’re like Ohhh that’s why.

It has felt since at least the beginning of the year that the genre is reaching a zeitgeisty point and people have started to get a bit bandwagony…

Well I feel like it keeps going through waves.

Everything is cyclic, certainly… but hi-NRG is like the “thing” this year.

Well that’s good to hear, because I like to play it. I mean I guess people just got sick of house music.

If you had a time machine and could visit any dancefloor anywhere/anywhen, where would you want to go dancing?

I think I would wanna go to the Muzic Box in Chicago. And hear Ron Hardy DJ. I would wanna hear him do his thing live.

Or even, there was a club in Detroit called Heaven with this guy Ken Collier.

Tell us about how you met Samuel Long and how Sfire came about?

He and I met on a dancefloor, in Berlin. His band was playing at an art gallery. We had some mutual friends so we were introduced. Then I saw them play and I was really into it, and I could hear the genius in his music. I suggested they make a dance version of a song they did, and he was like “well, why don’t you come and help me make it.” He had heard me DJ a few times, and he just invited me over. He’s very friendly and like ‘lets just have fun making music’ kinda guy. So we worked on it, and then we made a new song and then we were like “lets make a new song”, “lets make a new song”, “lets make a new song” and after a while we had a handful of songs, and we became really good friends. It was really fun just to go hang out and be really casual about it, but still have fun.

Any plans for more Sfire records?

Um yeah, we have maybe five songs that haven’t been released that we could work on. I think the project will turn into us working with lots of different people for each record. It’ll be really fun. Some new producers, and new friends, people from all over really.

You’ve lived in Detroit, Chicago, Berlin… where is your spiritual home?

Oh that’s a tough question. That’s my existential crisis right now. I left Berlin about a year ago and that was my spiritual home for a long time. So I’m really wondering this right now. But I’m starting to think it’s California. It’s a really magical place, and people are really happy there.

Where in California?

San Francisco.

Whilst in Berlin you were also a restauranteur, how did that develop from your supper clubs?

Well my ex boyfriend who I moved to Berlin with, he is an extremely talented chef, so for money we did a supper club that got a ton of press for it. We just ran with it, and it just seemed like an easy thing to do, to open the business in Berlin. There was a great demand for it, so we knew it would be successful. And so we went for it! American style!

There’s a video interview online with you both in the restaurant and the décor is amazing, especially all the lights… owl lights, and deer lights… it just seemed like you’d obviously put a lot of thought into that.

Yeah. We did. We completely renovated that place. It was this disgusting filthy restaurant before, so we tore out everything, and built the bar, and the shelves and everything. The flea markets in Germany are so great because they have so many of these animal figurines; actually most of them are on my desk right now! The owl lights and all the bunnies. Flea markets in Berlin on Sundays. You just have to go. And the best thing we would do was take loads of road trips, and if you drive down the country roads, every town you get to has a second hand shop where you can fill up a trunk for €10. It’s incredible.

You’re taking us on a date in a city of your choice. Where are we going, what are we eating and where are we dancing?

I could do this for all the fun cities right now. But lets say San Francisco. We’re gonna eat Burmese food, and we’re having tea salad (lahpet thoke). My favourite restaurant there is called Burmese Kitchen.

Isn’t it closing down?

Oh yes it is. We’re going before it closes. Anyway, this is a fantasy so it’s still open. So we’d eat there and then we’d go get a doughnut at Bob’s Doughnuts. Then we’d go to a Honey Soundsystem party. It would be amazing.

What are we drinking though?

What are we drinking? Well honestly we’re probably drinking tea, because me and Josh [Cheon] and Robot Hustle always have tea when we’re together because we’re old ladies. We’ll drink tea and then go for a dance.

What’s the first record you ever bought?

A Jeff Mills record. Purpose Maker record. When I first started DJing I was really into a lot of hard techno. So I think my first records was like Jeff Mills records and Joey Beltram records.

The last record you bought?

A Mantra record on Bunker from The Netherlands.

And what’s the record that never leaves your bag?

It’s this freestyle record that I love to play. It’s by Shana and it’s called I Want You. It really never leaves my bag. I played it once in Berlin and my best friend was like “oh, such a Jeff record.”

What’s the reaction it gets from people, other than those that already know you?

I think it’s normally a great reaction. But the best reaction I get is when I play in New York or Chicago and someone runs up and you can tell it was a childhood track of theirs and they’re like “I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG!!! THIS IS MY SONG!!” A lot of times that happens and it’s the best. When you see someone with that genuine look on their face and it’s not a club hit. Especially in Chicago, I get that a lot. Almost everything I DJ was on the radio in the ‘80s there. People just get so happy to hear that stuff so you get these genuine reactions that are priceless. I love that. Going back to Chicago and DJing is really fun for me.     

Join Jeffrey at Little Gay Locker Room at Dalston Superstore on Saturday 15th November from 9pm – 3am.


This Saturday sees the return of one of our favourite parties, Discosodoma. And this time they’ve invited Italians-living-in-Berlin, Discodromo to the Superstore basement! Fresh from the 5th Birthday of their own party/record label, CockTail D’Amore, the duo will be joined by local heroes 2Dads’Boy, MDMX, Y.O.T.I. and Anywayyouwanna. Ahead of the party the Elektra Complex collective posed a few questions about Berlin, dancing philosophies and global politics to find out more about them…

By Elektra Complex

It’s been a year since your last appearance at Dance Tunnel in London. What has changed since then?  

Not much to be honest… no wait, we’re both one year older and our baby just turned 5!

Recently you celebrated the five-year anniversary of CockTail d’Amore with Joe Claussell as your special guest. What have been your most memorable moments during this journey?  

Oh, way too many to remember… one time we had a half hour black out though, and the dancefloor turned into a huge darkroom. 

If you had the chance to do it all over again, would you have changed something?  

No way! 

How has the Berlin scene changed over the years from your perspective? Do you enjoy the growing popularity of the city as an international destination? 

Music-wise we can say it’s much more diverse now. Forget about Berlin as just techno city… there’s a lot more going on these days. Part of it is because of all the newcomers. Gentrification though, is spreading though and well… who likes that???

Due to the volatile political situation between Israel and Palestine, you found yourselves issuing a statement reassuring your fans in Tel Aviv that your gig will happen no matter what. Do you find politics and social issues informing your music and performances?  

Actually that statement was more about music as a peaceful message. That’s why we pointed out we played in both Ramallah and Tel Aviv.

“Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing” is a strong statement with multiple interpretations. Is music the ultimate form of escapism and a driving force for inclusiveness of all identities? Is this what sits at the very core of your work?  

*nothing matters when we’re dancing* is more a declaration of love to music. It’s about becoming one thing with it and loosing yourself. You call it escapism? We’d say more *meditation* 

With your new compilation, featuring Young Marco, Chymera, Lord Of The Isles, and yourselves among others, out in late October, where do you see the future of dance music going? Are there any distinctive sounds or styles emerging? 

It’s funny you ask this cause dance music is becoming everyday harder and harder to define. Genres are melting and contaminating each other in unexpected ways. These experiments in genres crossover are what excites us the most.    

Next week you will be taking your CockTail d’Amore at ADE for a special event with cosmic disco patron, Daniele Baldelli. Do you have any equally exciting future projects you would like to share with us? 

Yeah well our compilation is coming out soon and that’s something we’re really excited about… plus there is another Cocktail d’Amore in Paris at the Gaité Lyrique on the 25th of October celebrating the 5 years of the party.

What shall we expect from your Discosodoma set? 

Everything… and more!

And finally, disco is?

THE answer. 

Join Discodromo this Saturday for Discosodoma at Dalston Superstore from 9pm – 4am.

Who are Stereogamous?

We are a collective of queer musicians, optimists, producers, artists and DJs based in Sydney & Berlin. We make gay house music and even gayer parites. Currently, we are incredibly fortunate enough to collaborating and touring with Shaun J Wright from Chicago. A stunning vocalist, marvellous lyricist, phenomenal DJ, fabulous dancer and a tremendous person. Together we’re on a mission of encouraging happiness and loving freely via dancing and house music. We’re here to recruit you. 

You describe your music as “music for making out” under the genres of “bottom 40”, “horizontal dance music” “bath house”. What reaction are you looking for on the dance floor? 

Smiles, hugs, picking up and deep dancing. Dancefloors are queer sacred spaces, where we can bring people together to resonate happiness. The sounds we play are about invoking a radical departure from the noise and isolation in the wider world and foster intimacy and self expression. We strongly encourage people dance with each other and bring their shapes game. Everybody knows expressive dancers are best horizontal lovers. (No facing the front or no texting on the floor here pretty please.)

Describe new track ‘Sweat’ to us in five words. 

Hotness, manthem, steamroom, incandescence, moist.

1. Let Me Be The One (New York Dub) – Kim Ann Foxman 
Kim Ann Foxman always brings the heat. This is the sound for the deep end. 

2. The Spell (Phil Kieran Remix) – Phil Kieran
Epileptic electronics that massage the synapses. It’s all crazy patterns that fuck with your head. It’s really math without being meth.

3. The Oracle (Alinka & Shaun Dub Remix) – The Cucarachas & The Carry Nation 
The Cucarachas and The Carry Nation are our cousins and Tribal label mates from London and NYC. They are the Mr Right Nows of House Music, today. 

4. We’re Not Alone – Steffi & Dexter
Steffi is resident at Berlin’s Panorama Bar. This is music for a sweaty sunrise. 

5. Kiwis, Apples & Limes – Robot Needs Oil (Discodromo Spiritual Remix)
Discodromo are the handsome Italian duo keeping it premium deep, musical and sensual. 

6. Sirens – Didier de la Boutique
Misleading opening that starts off feeling a bit deep, polite, cocktail house but through its hypnotic, keta twist, it takes it all very sidewise.
7. Get Busy (Original Mix) – Maximono
The tightest, deepest pumper of a baseline that drives you deeper without the noise. No tricks, no fuss, just a confident swagger.

8. Food Of Love (DJ Sprinkles Grub Dub) – Hard Ton
The disco glamour bear gets a profound rework by icon DJ Sprinkles. 

9. Treptow (Original Mix) – Doc Daneeka
Super jacking madness. A piano stab driven minimatish house track that defies you not to not Twirl. 

10. Sweat (Aérea Negrot Remix) Stereogamous feat Shaun J Wright 
Not only a vanity listing, this remix from the incredible Aérea Negrot brings the Latin chemical feels. 

 Join Stereogamous this Saturday 16th August for Voguey Bear at Dalston Superstore from 9pm – 3am.
