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.

Due to licensing issues in your country it is not possible to seek backwards. Why is this?
