dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing radio show, live on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month from 8pm – 11pm (GMT) / 3pm – 6pm (EST) / Noon – 3pm (PST) on BoxFrequency.fm.
This episode I host Derry, Ireland based dj Alan Mooney. At just 21 it is often hard to feel a connection to the essence of a genre which was in its prime before he was even born, but one night at the disco with Get Down Edits and Late Nite Tuff Guy on the decks a spark was lit in Alan. Exquisite track selection, endless grooves, recognizable yet reworked classics and a feel good vibe being constants through his sets, productions and edits. Co-founding the Queen & Disco parties in Derry, Ireland back in 2013 before finally getting involved in the art of the re-edit. It was Queen & Disco that provided the platform for Alan, booking and playing along side some of his favorite producers. Today Alan and Queen & Disco is a sold force in the European dance music circles.

You can find more about Alan’s Queen & Disco on the website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Also, keep an eye out for Queen & Disco’s first vinyl release, Royalty of Funk Vol. 1 that will feature, along side the likes of LTJ and Get Down Edits, one of Allan’s own edits ‘Kofi‘. Look for it at your friendly neighborhood record shop in late February.
