DICK AND FANNY, the quarterly club night for homosexuals of all persuasions, arrives for its winter edition. Heating it up inside the Star of Bethnal Green to get you warm and cosy will be Berghain and Panoramabar resident TAMA SUMO (BERLIN), DAN BEAUMONT, MDMX and BORJA PENA. They will be spinning DAF's usual mix of classic house and techno, italo and hi nrg to entertain a mixed audience of dykes, fags, trannies and their admir...ers. DAF is a place for all gays to mix with a high dosage of fun, dancing, amazing music and no attitude.
Berlin's TAMA SUMO is resident DJ at Berghain/Panorama Bar. She started her DJ career in 1993 at Drama Bar in Berlin's Kreuzberg district, one of the first bars to have its own DJ on weekends and one of the few locations playing house in the city when most clubs were dominated by techno. She went on to play gay Saturdays at Cafe Moskau and had regular appearances at Tresor. She was also a resident at Berghain's predecessor Ostgut and has worked the decks of other Berlin clubs such as SO36 and Arena Club as well as playing around the globe.
DAN BEAUMONT is one of London's more forward thinking DJs whose varied sets include a heady mix of vintage house, italo rareties, vocal disco and the best new music he can find. He launched Disco Bloodbath in 2006 which started a three year adventure playing in some of the UK & Europe's most discerning nightclubs as well as remixing artists like Franz Ferdinand, Little Boots and Monarchy. Last year Dan fulfilled a dream by opening his own venue - East London's groundbreaking Dalston Superstore and he has since left Disco Bloodbath to pursue analogue adventures in the studio.
DJ and promoter MDMX regularly appears at Dalston Superstore favourite Twat Boutique and has played at various lesbian club nights across the capital including Mannequin, Ruby Tuesdays, Other People's Property and Koochooloo.
BORJA PENA is a resident at Disco Fag Bar and has had guest spots at Carpet Burn, Dalston Superstore, Vogue Fabrics and abroad in Madrid, New York and Prague.
