Occupy The Disco (OXD) is the New York-based DJ collective of Tad Haes, DJ RuBot, and Josh Appelbaum. What started out as a casual experiment by three friends to introduce undergound electronic music back onto the gay dance floor soon turned into curation and experimentation behind the decks. Their shared love for queer nightlife’s musical legacy drives them to not only cherish the past but embrace the future.
Occupy The Disco maintains a residency at Le Bain at The Standard, High Line with their afternoon tea dance, Paradisco. OXD has also been featured at Good Room, Flash Factory, Analog BKNY, House of Yes, Black Flamingo, and at parties like 11:11, Battle Hymn, and The Pines Party.
