Call him a rare disco revivalist, San Francisco’s champion of “The Golden Age of Gay” or “The Godfather of Bathhouse Disco.” Or, just call him DJ Bus Station John, that’s his name after all. Currently helming such successful parties as Love Will Fix It, Disco Daddy at the SF Eagle and the long-running (ten years next spring) mother of all sleaze disco parties, Tubesteak Connection, BSJ is one of the most prolific and devoted DJ’s to happen to disco.
DJ Bus Station John comes to Seattle next weekend for the most celebrated gay holiday, Halloween! He spins Friday October 25 at the Seattle Eagle, then Saturday October 26 at Pony for STIFFED!
Very intrigued by Walton’s debut album on Hyperdub. I respect hearing several styles and genres placed together in a distinct new way, and Beyond is a perfect example. You’ll catch some pieces of underground dance music; house, grime, garage and bits of R&B. But it’s the overall Beyond package and effortless execution of these elements that dazzles me. Walton has created his own environment, with enough diversity to attract a wide range of listeners.
