Mixtape founder and 15-year resident DJ Matt Bailer has had a passion for discovering and sharing music since he was 10 years old, and loves to infuse his sets with a mix of the familiar and a taste of the new – just like the mixtapes he made for friends growing up. He is also the founder and resident DJ of the insanely popular monthly 1990s party Peach Pit at DC9, which will celebrate its 14th anniversary later this year. He has brought his inclusive, welcoming sound to queer venues all over the city and across the country throughout his career, and currently holds weekly residencies at Pitchers and Kiki. By weaving a mix of house, pop, nu-disco, 80s, 90s, and little bits of everything in between, he’ll make it a challenge to leave the dancefloor as you’ll keep finding yourself wanting to stay for just one more song.
For over 10 years, Khelan Bhatia has been a fixture of the queer DJ scene in Washington DC. He’s been a regular at spaces like Trade, Number 9, and Kiki, and co-created the monthly 80’s party, BreakfastClub, which ran from 2012 to 2018. Khelan has lent his talents to causes that support the LGBTQ+ communities, including the Trevor Project and SMYAL. If you had to describe his sound, “eclectic pop” comes to mind, with a dash of disco, funk, indie electronica, and, of course, retro.
Always keeping New Jack Swing sounds in her vicinity, Diyanna Monet is a Washington DC multidisciplinary artist, whose enthusiasm and ambition for movement stems from her childhood exposure to music genres such as Hip-hop, R&B, and the native Go-Go sound, which catalyzed her path in DJing. Inspired by several collectives and artists in the city, Diyanna’s creative blends of art, djing, and dance convey reminiscent energies of a “90s House Party”.
Founding member and resident of DC’s Flower Factory, gentle giant Pwrpuff is known for his punchy, infectious and playful sound that is guaranteed to surprise and make you sweat. Building soundscapes of his own productions, house, techno, tribal, and jungle beats, all with a psychedelic flare, losing yourself on the dance floor is his goal.
Although fresh, in a short time Pwrpuff continues to make a statement in the DC scene playing at iconic queer parties including BENT, Project Glow, Flower Factory, Xunt, Areola and Horsemeat Disco. Get your looks and your dancing shoes ready – Pwrpuff is not to be missed
