Get ready for We Are Family with our DJ’s favourite disco tracks


OUTinPerth’s We Are Family fundraiser party is coming up this Saturday and it looks like it’s going to be a big one! We’re busy getting everything ready to make sure everyone has the perfect environment to freak out on the dancefloor at Nelson’s Pop Up Bar.

To get you in the mood for Saturday’s festivities, we challenged our disco DJ’s to choose just one go-to track that always gets them fired up. Here are Roski, Milly and Curlee’s top picks.


Blow Your Whistle
Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers

“More on the funk side of disco, this is a high energy, 3 minute nugget of booty shakin’ gold. The whistle definitely adds to the party vibe; just don’t be blowing one near me, or I’ll be throwing shade instead of shapes!”


Hot Stuff
Donna Summer

“Hot Stuff by Donna Summer wins by a nose for me because it represents the roots of our community. It’s energetic, passionate, happy, powerful and camp. I have so many wonderful clubbing memories from playing this song… lots of booty shaking, shirts off and hands in the air goodness!”


Lost In Music (1984 Bernard Edwards & Nile Rogers Remix)
Sister Sledge

“With great thanks to my Mam and her love of disco and divas (plus being born in 1974), I’m well and truly a born and bred disco-baby. While there are so many disco diamonds I could choose from, “Lost in Music” epitomizes the significance of the role music has played throughout my life. From the age of 4, when my parents gave me my first turntable and a bag of 7”s (mostly disco), to quitting my 9-5 at the age of 20 and embarking on my now 22 year career as a DJ, music has always been my salvation and the place where I’m happiest being lost in.”

We Are Family, a fundraiser to support the publication of OUTinPerth, is this Saturday 24th September at Nelson’s Pop Up Bar from 8pm – 12pm. Bonus free entry to Connections Nightclub until 12:30pm.
