There are certain moments shared on the dance floor that stick with you for the rest of your life, and collectively we’ve all experienced many of those dancing to Horse Meat Disco’s blend of classic disco and house music. Josh Wood Productions has asked us to once again host a special NYC Pride edition of Horse Meat Disco’s NYC residency at Cielo on Friday, June 27th. Horse Meat Disco’s Jim Stanton & Severino Panzetta will be spinning, hot off of the heels of their latest Compilation release, Horse Meat Disco Vol. IV.
Horse Meat Disco’s sound is one that purports over many generations of gay music lovers, and links lovers of classic disco to today’s nu-disco/house aficionado. Carrying the torch of gay nightlife’s past has been part and parcel of everything HMD does, from their long-standing party at London’s The Eagle to the poppers bottle and silhouette of Sylvester found in their official logo. It’s especially fitting to hear this collective spin at pride, a time where we are commemorating the heroes who kept on dancing even when it was illegal. At last year’s pride edition of HMD, Severino stole our hearts by halting the music at 3:30AM and playing Grace Jones’ ‘La Vie En Rose’ from beginning to end.
Since it’s Pride weekend we highly encourage everyone arrive early to ensure ease of entry, and check out a fantastic opening set by DFA Records’ Museum of Love (comprised of LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney & The Juan MacClean’s Dennis McNany). Check out their recent Boiler Room set to get a taste of what they have in store for us.
