Friends and Family,

We are calling all dancers to the floor for this special edition of Yes Yes Y'all. Yes we are the baddest queer hiphop/dancehall party around. Yes we will still be playing that, however we'd like to invite all voguers and house dancers out to this event to show us how y'all are going to work that pussy, serve us some face, and storm the goddamn runway. Get your House together and come see us xo

We present to you..from New Jersey, the one and only legendary ballroom deejay.....

MikeQ- (Fade to Mind, Qween Beat Collective) - New Jersey
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Jersey based MikeQ is one of the key figures of NYC’s long-running ballroom/vogue house scene. The artistic dance known as ‘voguing’ has been popular in the underground clubs of the East Coast of America since the 1960s, and two decades after the seminal movie Paris Is Burning it remains one of the most colourful subcultures in the US, and a very passionate part of NY club life. In recent years a new generation of music producers has been joining the dots between ballroom traditions and the bass-heavy hi-tech house sound of now – including the likes of Vjuan Allure, Angel X and MikeQ, just to name a few. Mike gained a love for the ballroom scene and its music in 2003 – when he was 17 – after visiting a local New Jersey party spot, and on hearing Masters At Work’s The Ha Dance he became eager to search out more music and develop his own take on it. Now one of the most in-demand DJs on the scene, Mike is spreading the ballroom gospel in North America and across the pond, while teaming up with Night Slugs’ US sister label Fade To Mind. He also heads up his own Qween Beat collective, puts out countless mixtapes, and releases a steady stream of ballroom tracks, re-edits, and remixes, very often built upon that tiny Ha loop.
