Pig Dance at Ramrod Fort Lauderdale was the most important gig I had since deciding to come out of DJ retirement 18 months ago, never preparing so hard for an all night set. It’s the culmination of 18 months of learning, by trial and error, curating the best of what has worked, knowing I didn’t have to hold back—and I didn’t.
While I’m fairly new to playing for gay crowds, I have the benefit of literally decades of experiencing the gay nightlife in multiple cities around the world, but mainly all those New York experiences that have left their indelible mark. This set brings all those experiences together, culminating with these recent months of living life as a local DJ, something I’ve always wanted to experience.
Hopefully those who have stuck by me have benefitted in some way. I did not come up in the DJ world playing gigs like this. It’s definitely been a learning experience but it has made me stronger. The narrative in this set is the vision I’ve had for many many years of what I’d personally want to experience at a major gay party. Some of the tracks in this set you might not expect from me, but I’ve been holding onto them in my back pocket with this vision in mind.
I know it’s long, but there isn’t some peak 1-2 hour stretch I could edit out for your convenience. It stands alone as a single statement.
