NYC’s gay nightlife scene is on the rise recently with several great disco and house music-oriented parties emerging every week. But there are two parties that have been around for several years – and likely one of the main reasons why great quality house music never disappeared from the Big Apple: Spank and Xanadude. As some of our readers might be familiar, the common factor between those two events, and our next guest at Paradisco, is one of our favorite local DJs, Sean B.
Sean B has been DJing in NYC clubs since 1996, including legendary spots like The Limelight and Mr. Black, as well as other popular places like Chelsea Hotel’s Clubber Down Disco, Santos Party House, Le Bain and countless loft parties throughout the city. He has also had the opportunity to guest DJ at high profile events around the world, from Horse Meat Disco in London, to Vogue Fabrics, Dalston Superstore and AKA (part of the legendary The End night club). Currently, Sean is one of the resident DJs at Xanadude, and one-half of the influential Spank parties, alongside DJ Will Automagic.
Sean music style is strongly influenced by classic Chicago house, 80′s disco and the 90′s vogue scene from the infamous Harlem Balls. As a producer, Sean has been releasing original material and remixes under his moniker Best Mate. To learn more about Sean B’s career, take a look at our exclusive Spotlight interview with him.
We’re excited to feature such an integral part of NYC’s music scene this week, as well as watching Paradisco grow and evolve with the spring season. As the winter becomes a not-so-pleasant distant memory and lovely warmer days finally descend upon us, we are excited to announce we will be moving to the Great Lawn on the second floor of THE OUT NYC. This will give us even more space and sunlight while continuing to feature the best disco and house DJs. It’s time to put on your springtime best and enjoy the great outdoors, and we hope to see many gay disco and house music lovers getting down under the sun this weekend. RSVP on our Facebook event, invite your friends and help us spread the word!
