This Friday: Fred Everything at ¡Club Queso!

The team at ¡Club Queso! has always promised to bring everything you could ever want in a top notch fun time house music night in Orlando. Now the "everything" bit can be taken literally: transporting down from San Francisco for the next event will be our esteemed DJ friend Fred Everything. In addition to his indisputable floor-quaking DJ skills, Mr. Everything is quite the renowned producer. His debut album, Under The Sun, recorded for Britain's 20/20 Vision label is considered a classic by many. Fred's recent move from Montreal to San Francisco cemented his relationship with Om Records who have released his latest album Lost Together, featuring contributions from Roy Davis Jr., Tortured Soul, Lisa Shaw, and N’dea Davenport from The Brand New Heavies. In addition to all this, Fred commandeers his own Lazy Days label which has released bits by the likes of Brett Johnson, Lovebirds, Joshua IZ, and our own Atnarko. No less than Buzzin Fly's Ben Watt has called Fred Everything "one of my favorite deep house producers." We think he'll soon be one of yours, too, as Everything's Queso debut should inspire your dance floor conversion. A special night of extra special music is in the offing.

Sonic support comes in the form of ¡Club Queso! residents Q-Burns Abstract Message and Atnarko who will supply their special brand of deep, funky goodness prior to the main attraction. Lola B will be on hand lovingly adjusting the atmosphere and Show Source Productions will be bringing the booming bassbins.

This all happens on Friday, October 1 at The Peacock Room, located at 1321 North Mills Avenue, next to the corner of Mills and Virgina. Click HERE for a map or directions. Call (407) 228-0048 for information. $10 cover for this special event, $7 with Facebook RSVP. 21 and up, doors at 10 PM.

We'll see you soon for Fred Everything at ¡Club Queso!

P.S. - and on Saturday, October 3, I'll be DJ'ing at Crooked Bayou with my special friend Marcelo Medeiros of Discotheque Radio, visiting all the way from Curitiba, Brazil, and Rob Slac of Chillin Music. More info on this soon … it's gonna be a great weekend for house music in Orlando!

We feel the heat of the arriving summer and answer with a bit of Love. Chuck Love, that is. Towing a menagerie of sweet tunes and musical instruments Mr. Love aims to entertain the Queso crowd with his funky song-smith and electric personality. Chuck Love's contributions to the catalogs of Om Records and his own Love Network have filled many a house DJ's set, and his visits to central Florida have made him an Orlando favorite.

There we'll find the annual Queso Valentine's Ball, with lovers-not-fighters Q-Burns Abstract Message, Atnarko, Sleazy McQueen, and Matt Harris (T.A.R.D. ... it's his birthday!) playing Cupid-fresh house music tracks. I'm positive their antics will get us in the right mood. If you need a little more to tickle your fancy then know that Lola B is providing quite an amorous décor to The Peacock Room and Show Source Productions will make things sound extra scrumptious. Oh, ¡Club Queso!, how can you resist my charms?

Project: ¡Queso! DJ Mix & The Gig Quest Continues

It's been a while since I've posted a new DJ mix here but I'm hoping the frequency increases in the coming months. Soon I should be making an announcement regarding a monthly online radio show I'm launching which will mean monthly mixes that I'll post here. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, here's the free DJ mix I gave away at our April 2009 ¡Club Queso! party in Orlando, FL. I'm personally quite into this one, as it starts in a deep, techy house realm and smoothly evolves into the funky stuff. I hope you'll dig it as well.

Secondly, a note for party promoters, club owners, and friends of the same: I'm now looking for bookings into the summertime and beyond. As always I plan on getting out and about quite a bit so no matter where in the world you are, if you're interested in having an eclectic & manic house DJ make your dancefloor freak out then please get in touch.

Here are some specific flight-share dates I'm looking to fill:
Saturday, May 23 - Flight share with Boston, MA
Friday, June 5 - I need to fill this date in the UK. I can also do the weekdays prior.
Friday, June 12 - Flight share with Houston, TX
Early Summer - West Coast/California
August/September - Australia and New Zealand

... and of course, any other places, any other dates ... I'm open to it. Get in touch!

Let me know what you think of the DJ mix above ... I hope you like ti and I also hope I get to play in your city soon.
