Fact Mix 318: Mikeq

Strike a pose: the prince of modern ballroom touches down for a FACT mix.

For those unfamiliar with the ballroom house scene: we’re far from experts ourselves, though Chantal Renault’s recent photo book Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York City 98-92 and accompanying compilation for Soul Jazz – not to mention Steve Shaw’s excellent recent piece on MikeQ for FACT – makes us wish we were.

In short, it’s a mostly black, gay dance scene synonymous with New York and New Jersey and competitive dancing. In recent years, MikeQ has emerged as the voguing new-school’s most celebrated DJ and producer: his sample-heavy tracks combine the stepping feel of classic ballroom with a razor-sharp modern edge, throwing nods to UK Funky and Night Slugs-style club music in the process; Night Slugs artist Kingdom, in fact, recently released some of MikeQ’s music on his new label, and sister label to Night Slugs, Fade to Mind.
