Horse Meat Disco
Initially established in 2004 at The Eagle, an innocuous gay bar in London’s Vauxhall, Horse Meat Disco has evolved into a powerful force in queer and club culture as a whole, while staying local to its original home, each and every Sunday. Co-founded by James Hillard and Jim Stanton, and encompassing residents Severino and Luke Howards, the crew continue to maintain not only the weekly Sunday party, but a number of residencies in cities across the world, alongside a kaleidoscope of club appearances, festival dates and specially curated mixes.
After decades of crate digging, globetrotting and partying, the Horse Meat Disco continues apace. In 2017 the crew recorded their long-awaited contribution to BBC Radio 1’s ‘Essential Mix’. From their weekly residency every Sunday afternoon on Rinse FM, to their electrifying, all-inclusive live shows, the sound of Horse Meat Disco is impossible to place. A typical Horse Meat Disco set blends classics, italo, disco, house, oddities, and punk funk, conjuring their initial spirit of “a queer party for everyone”, and is definitely not to be missed.
