This East Coast native knows how to properly get everyone down and dirty, and we can’t wait to partake in the boogie. For info and RSVP, click here. Read on for more about the prolific nu-disco DJ/producer.

Although his synthed-out sounds may suggest otherwise, Laurin Fedora, better known as Sleazy McQueen, hails from a farm town in central North Carolina. Despite a general lack of disco growing up, one cannot escape their true destiny. He bode his time until an eventual relocation to New York by creating complex sounds and curating poorly attended parties. Once in New York, though, that all changed.
While enjoying the night at a club in Chelsea, McQueen heard one of his own productions played by Mark Farina. This moment gave him the kick and the kahonas to really try his hand at a career in the music industry. Now standing firmly at the forefront of the nu-disco sound, he has certainly made his mark. He combines seventies funk with the riveting rhythms of deep house, for undeniably danceable edits, and over 100 original releases. As if that weren’t enough to keep a man busy, he also heads the imprint Whiskey Disco, all while maintaining a tremendous tour schedule.
From the tropics comes Whiskey Disco, a sneaky re-edit label bent on dredging the decanter for diffident dancefloor genius from latent disco perpetrators.
Some notable edits under his belt include Bionic Boogie’s ‘Chains,’ George McCrae’s ‘Lifted,’ Stevie Wonder’s ‘Do I Do,’ and the iconic cut, Sister Sledge’s ‘Lost in Music.’
Whether he’s making music for a BBQ boogie, or a downright disco, his bag is always full of nothing but dirty fun.
