MikeQ is one of the very few DJs who admit that without the dancers, he’d be nothing.
But make no mistake: he is, nevertheless, the crown prince of modern ballrooms. 'His spine-snapping DJ sets are seriously in demand at the moment, not just at the well-established vogue nights of his native New Jersey and up and down the USA’s East Coast, but beyond (London, Paris, Tokyo), and his exploits have been earning column inches in Vanity Fair. His achievement of recognition beyond his home turf no doubt has something to do with the renewed appreciation of the original 1970s and 80s New York ballroom phenomenon, which has been prompted in part by the release of Chantal Regnault’s astonishing photo book V Voguing: Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York City 89-92.” (Fact).
Resident at ballroom club Vogue Nights – a place for vogue performers, runway divas, realness bois and face gods & goddesses who come together – MikeQ has become the new-school scene’s most celebrated selector, one who crucially retains the spirit of 90s ballrooms but adds a razor-sharp modern edge to it.
