Outcast Love # 3 comes from one of favourite guest djs of 2008, Steve Lee. Steve made the journey up to Manchester on August bank holiday for 2 parties at the disco dive & both nights played incredible sets of deep disco & house that impressed the Disco Outcasts no end.
Steve has supplied a lovely christmas treat for us all to enjoy over the festive season by presenting us with a 2 part mix, so raise a glass & get yourself involved with Mr.Steve Lee.
We would like to thank all the guest djs who have played at our disco dive & supplied mixes for the "Outcast Love" series.

Now 20 years on and you'll still find steve lee spinning various and eclectic electronic music across London and the UK. He's one half of Mondo Disco held at the Horse & Groom in Shoreditch, London. Mondo concentrates on nu-disco, mutant disco, re-edits, acid grooves and classic italo. it was started off the back of the facebook group "Disco Not Disco" where regular spinners - Kelvin Andrews, Daniel Donnachie, Graeme Fisher and Ollie Humpidge drop the best in cosmic oddities and the deeper side of disco.
In addition to Mondo, steve still spins at his long running Friday night KOLLEKTIV held at The Lincoln Lounge in Kings Cross. And, if you drop-in midweek you'll also find him running his little candle-lit acoustic night featuring folk/balearic guitar vibes from Kal Lavelle, Jim Gipson, Souther Still and many other quality artists.

Disco Outcasts present the second installment of their "outcast love" mix series, with Daniel Donnachie from Cosmic Dancing. Danny is a new friend of the Disco Outcasts with a suprise hour set for Leo's birthday & he is confirmed to play at the disco dive January 31st 2009.
I've just arrived straight from Camp Cosmic. I am also branded with the title “compulsive sicko” by friends as collecting and playing music has been a major passion for over half my life now. Every day I crave to learn about music I haven’t discovered yet whilst listening to music that has already been attained. I frequently try and go through my favourite dj’s bag to hear ones I haven’t heard about and not devoured yet. Since the age of 16 I have been gaining experience in all types of scenarios and parties, learning about vital underground classics and rarities along with taste making new artists that come to light over time. Since the start I have had a string of residencies in clubs and bars in Leicester, Nottingham, Stoke and London. Guest gigs all over the uk and a small number of gigs abroad. I have been the protégé to a dj called Kelvin Andrews. He is one of the few dj’s in the UK who has been involved in making music, spinning tunes and putting on parties since the inception of the UK dance scene in the early 80’s. The knowledge I have gained off him has completely opened my brain giving me the ability to embrace all forms of music.
Gradually over time I have been able to entertain people with a very wide range of music. The thing I am most popular for is my disco and house sets or bringing an eclectic sound to a main room. I have a personal taste that lets me satisfy most people this could involve cosmic sounds, vocals, dubs, disco, funk and soul or on a flip side I would energise people with house and techno like click funk, minimal, dub disco, deep house which can deliver a more futuristic sound. Those are my two extremes I like to bring to the party. I only play records I personally like, present the tracks in two ways. Just let them breathe or mix them up. Just depends on the record really. I hate to mix things up too much when you don't really need to. Some people think I'm being lazy when I just let the record run out. Some people think you lose the flow if you don't mix anything but some records are just not meant to be messed with. Personally I think there isn't enough people out there who dig great music and just want an easy sound or a very overplayed commercial record but for me if that is what I got for going out I would feel a bit ripped off.

DISCODEINE (UK Debut)
PILOOSKI (Dirty, Paris)
Rounding things off for us this year we bring you a UK debut from the latest talent to emerge from the French electronic scene. Discodeine are Pilooski and Benjamin Morendo. Hailed by Ivan Smagghe as ‘the real sound of Paris’, their releases on their own Dirty imprint have steadily been gaining praise from the more discerning circles of dance music with their quirky cosmic edits and electronic funk, which culminated in a stunning label showcase at the Sonar festival in Barcelona this summer. Their ‘Ring Modulation’ release from earlier this year was played in any credible club you care to mention from house, electro and minimal DJs alike and has since been followed up by their delightful remix for Metronomy. Along with the likes of Joakim and Chateau Flight, they are flying the banner for a new wave of exciting Parisian DJ’s and producers and we are delighted to have them play their first UK show at Polaroid.
Friday December 5th

Will a lady pin me in her hair?
Will a child find me by a stream?
Kiss my petals and weave me through a dream.
For all of these simple things and much more a flower was born
It blooms to spread love and joy faith and hope to people forlorn
Inside every man lives the seed of a flower
If he looks within he finds beauty and power
Ring all the bells sing and tell the people that be aware that the flower has come
Light up the sky with your prayers of gladness and rejoice for the darkness is gone
Throw off your fears let your heart beat freely at the sign that a new time is born

The Disco Outcasts launch their new mix series "Outcast Love..." from djs that have graced their weekly parties at the Purple Pussy Cat and friends of the Outcasts.
Outcast love # 1: SEVERINO & JIM STANTON - HORSE MEAT DISCO
Since its humble beginnings over 5 years ago Horse Meat Disco has become an institution on both sides of the sexual divide due in large part to its dedication and appreciation to Disco music in all its forms. The brainchild of James Hillard and Jim Stanton via the inspiration of New York nightlife legend Adam Goldstone (RIP) the idea was to create an alternative party that harped back to the halcyon days of parties like The Loft and The Gallery in New York whilst at the same time adapting it for a London crowd and always looking to the future. This formula proved successful from the start and led the club to take up its residency every Sunday in the most fantastic South London boozer; Eagle London.
Jim and James both DJs in their own right enlisted the help of 2 of London's hardest working DJs to help create the sound that would take HMD from its beginnings in a china town basement to the recognition it now holds. Those DJs being Severino hailing from Mantova in Italy and Filthy Luka (aka Luke Howard) resident of Queer Nation and life long disco fanatic. These 4 DJs with their knowledge of music and what makes a dance floor move proved a force to be reckoned with and the parties soon became the talk of the town attracting a discerning mix of old time disco heads, club kids, bears, naturists and something new in gay clubs; a space where disco fans of a heterosexual persuasion could live out their fantasy of going to a gay disco club without feeling totally out of place. The club's ethos has always been to provide a queer space for everyone after all the best parties have always been the ones where the crowd comes from all walks of life.
