With Beek aka Anthonyy Badon, we connected on a personal level as well as a musical one. I was first drawn to his sassed up productions, and after having a few long conversations online, I saw someone on a similar wavelength. I think this dude is wise way beyond his years, and Disco Droppings is happy to give its full support. So if you like attitude, give it up for the fierce entity known as Beek..

DD You’re younger than I expected, and I say that in the best way. There’s so much maturity in your voice, the productions and the overall execution. I was like “whaaat this dude is only 19?!” What inspires all this energy? You’re projecting so much in a very strong way, it commands attention. 

B Well, it may sound a bit cliché, but all of the energy comes from me being so introverted as a child. I was always “the fat kid!” Nobody really paid me any attention. Once I started loosing weight and started loving myself more, I felt unstoppable. The energy and personality was always there. I just finally gained the confidence I needed to unleash it on the world.



DD There’s a large gay community over here in Seattle. I see people with style, I see attitude, but nothing as fierce as these ballroom videos. This to me, is real attitude. Dancing for their lives; ready to break their legs, ankles and whatever else to be the best. What does all this stuff mean to you? 

B Oh my goodness, without the ballroom scene I don’t even know where I would be as far as producing music goes. Amongst all other genres, Ballroom really stood out to me. The raw sound and the passion that the voguers brought to the floor gave me chills. I had never seen anything like it. Before then, I had never seen so many gay people in one room. It made me feel like I could actually fit in somewhere, and I wanted to be a part of it.


DD What would you say Beek is all about? 

B Well, Beek is a very loud and outspoken person. He’s also, all about being sexy. He says all the things that Anthonyy would be too afraid to say.



DD Would you describe yourself as a loner in your hometown? You mentioned that you never play shows there, and that people don’t really care about the kind of music you do. You also mentioned being a bit of a misfit and not connecting with a lot of the other gay dudes in your area, which I can relate to.

B Yes, I would consider myself a loner. I don’t really have many local friends at all. I could probably count them all on one hand. The gay guys in my area are all pretty much one in the same. They don’t really like anything, or anyone for that matter that’s different. And, as far as my music goes, the majority of the people here don’t understand it. And that’s okay. It’ll take some time for them to grasp it, but by then I hope to be where I need to be.

DD What’s in the works for you in 2014? 

B You should def be on the lookout for the official Qween Beat release coming very soon! As well as my own personal EP titled “Naked.”

Crafting some of the sassiest and most memorable mixes I’ve heard in a while, and looking damn good doing it. It’s time to turn up the heat on Disco Droppings, Joey LaBeija is in control. In this interview we talk about his House of LaBeija family, influence, how his mixes come together and his connection to the CuntMafia Warehouse parties in New York.


DD You are a part of the House of LaBeija, the first voguing house ever started. You are also the only DJ in this crew. As ballroom and vogue culture continues to spread, you seem to be in an ideal central spot. How would you describe the house, its significance and your role in the whole thing? 

JL Being a 4th generation LaBeija has been a blessing. Everyone in the house is so loving, supportive, goal oriented and driven.  One of our LaBeija mottos is ‘we are a family first and a ballroom house second’. Every single one of us, even our Father Tommie, has a hustle and a struggle and it feels really comforting to know that we are all in this together. The house was quiet for a while in the ballroom scene, and as members of the house, we are all doing our thing to make sure everyone knows WE ARE BACK.  I got inducted to the house shortly after my first international gig in Tokyo. I knew that my life as a DJ was slowly but surely about to grow, and I wanted to do it in the name of LaBeija, helping bring the name back to the forefront in and outside of the ballroom community.

DD What has influenced your style as a DJ? 

JL I am not much of a voguer, I only vogue when I’m turnt up with my boys smoking blunts at the crib or when I come out the shower feeling soft-n-cunt. Ballroom music is just a fraction of what I like to play…I think growing up in New York has influenced my style as a dj more so than anything. Growing up here I was a floater, never really hanging out with one specific group of people. I went to school with guidos, hung out with punks on St. Marks, cruised for trade with fags on The Pier, and smoked L’s and drank Korbel with my ratchet bitches on the block.  Each crew had a completely different influence on me musically and I think it shows a lot in what I do.


DD In addition to an obvious gift with music, you have really rad style. I don’t really have a question about your style, but I just want to commend you on looking fucking awesome all the time. 

JL Thanks boo ❤

DD I enjoy the names of some of your mixes, such as “Tales From The Bedroom” and “Good Sex & Night Terrors”. Do you often think about themes when pulling together your track lists? 

JL Going into a mix with a theme in mind is really important to me. I like to think of those mixes in particular as pages from my journal because they tell a little bit of a story. I didn’t pick tracks for either of them…I recorded them live and played strictly off of my emotions. The titles came to me after listening to them. I wanted Tales From the Bedroom to be a panty dropper mix; something you could listen to while gettin yacked by your [in]significant other. Good Sex & Night Terrors is my favorite..for me, it is story about how much of a nightmare it can be balancing your hustle, loving a dude and being a bad bitch which is exactly what I was going through while recording it.


DD I read in a past interview that you’re planning to expand your friend CuntMafia’s Warehouse parties in New York. These look extremely diverse in terms of the crowds you attract as well as extremely successful in general. How is that coming together? I hope you guys come to Seattle, I’d love to help in any way!

JL Contessa and I are always curating something crazy. Me her and my best friend Shawn Leigh had a great success with our monthly party ‘Iconic’ this summer. I decided to pull the reins on it for a plethora of reasons, the main one being none of the venues really felt like home, which is why we moved the party around every time. But when we find the right home we will bring something back to life for sure. Throwing warehouse parties involves a lot and can be really difficult when you don’t have a rich white man fronting/investing the money for you like other warehouse parties here. Thats why I respect Contessa, she may be wild as fuck and will rage on you like no other, but all of her success is self made and self invested. She’ll take a struggle over a stack of cash any day cuz she’s ACTUALLY about that life.

DD What artists have you the most hyped right now?

JL GIRL!. There has been so much good music coming out recently it’s almost TOO much to handle. I’m really loving everything coming out from Fade To Mind right now. That Kelela Album is has been my bible since it dropped. Kingdom’s Vertical XL is genius, and I’m like crying in anticipation of NguzuNguzu’s new ep coming out. Don’t get me started on Drake’s NWTS…that album has me slow winding for hours at end. 

DD Any last words?

I am all over Sugur Shane. I first heard “Buddah Vs Sugur” through the Qween Beat Soundcloud, and thought “DAMN”. So I emailed MikeQ, head of this savage label and asked about Sugur. He hooked us up and here we are. As someone who loves attitude, Sugur Shane’s music is exactly the kind of stuff I can’t get enough of. I am 100% behind his My Night With Peter & Junior release (digital or CD) and I’m so excited to chat with him today. In addition to this interview, he’s given Disco Droppings an exclusive download of  “Sexy Heels Freestyle”. 


DD First off, I get so hyped on your music! The attitude, the energy and the power you showcase really gets my goin’. Could you talk about your influences on “My Night With Peter & Junior”? There’s a combination of Peter Rauhofer, Junior Vasquez, ballroom culture, house classics, and rap battling all melded into one. I’m interested in what these various things mean to you?

SS Thank you, I’m glad you enjoy it. Well Peter & Junior are the reasons I fell in love with house music. When I was 18 first stepping into the legendary Roxy nightclub of NYC, it totally changed me. I went religiously every Saturday; sometimes I would just sit on a speaker and feel the bass. As far as ballroom culture, a couple tracks of course have that theme and then the infamous “ha” we used. Rap Battling is my style for rapping. I have a huge love for house music but also hip-hop. I hate when people make the mistake of calling me a commentator or ballroom artist. It just shows you how much research they have done on me, NONE. At the end of day, I’m not commentating on my songs, I’m rapping. I always wanted to do a mixtape with house music classics. When I became a part of Qween Beat, I thought this would be the perfect time to do it. So I took all of my influences and merged them into one project.


DD To follow up, how do you feel your music distinguishes itself from your influences? I would say you have your own thing going on.

SS I’m glad you said that! I feel the same exact way. You can definitely hear the influences, but I know how to make it my own. Also I’m always evolving, and learning to make sure my music remains fresh.

DD Did you collaborate with a producer on this release? You’ve mentioned the producer Get Em..

SS I mainly worked with my producer Get Em on this release. I included some older tracks of mine which were produced by Jay R (Qween Beat), DJ Exclusive(PKE), and DJ Nakaifma (Bamabounce). B. Lee of Hustler Records mixed and mastered two of those tracks. The feature info and production credits can be found on the tracklisting artwork.


DD The execution of your voice in these tracks is phenomenal. How long have you been at this, both as a rapper and producer? At this point, it sounds very realized.

SS I’ve been recording and releasing music since late 2004-05. My first release on a record label was in 2010 on E0N5/Kult Records.

DD What does a Sugur Shane show look like? Take us into the environment you aim to create.

SS A Sugur Shane show is FUN! I like to have a lot of fun and engage in my audience. I want them to have the time of their life, so after I’m done they are asking when the next show is. So far so good, I’m happy that I have succeeded with that so far. The response has been overwhelming. To give you a little insight, I like to have a theme for my show. Different segments etc. I’m also big on shock value, so I like to have some performances & remixes handy for my show.


DD There’s a music video for your “Qween Beat Attack Intro” track. What was the process like getting that together, and how involved are you in the direction and style of the video?

SS The process of that is draining but fun. I’m an independent artist, which means I’m also a walking record label. Everything you see from the photo shoots, music videos, marketing even down to booking shows is all me. One of my partners in my company Got Rush Ent helped me shoot that music video. We did the shooting together as well as for all my videos. I’m very hands on when it comes to everything. I control the direction I want to take and so forth. I have a recording studio and also photography studio equipped with a green screen. By time we were done, all it needed was editing.


DD What do plan on accomplishing next? I truly wish you all the best, know that your tracks will be getting support from me in Seattle!

SS I’m glad to hear that. What’s next? I have many projects in the works right now. I worked with quite a few producers on some tracks. I have a remix EP in the works with a crazy roster for production. Two bitchy house music tracks sitting to be released later this year. OH! And the mixtape is not going away. I’m doing several other music videos for the mixtape. I feel I still have much more ground to cover, the mixtape is way to good to let sit.
