- Derrick Carter: QUEEN!
- Michael Serafini
‘My aim remains the same every week: I come in, blow your party the fuck up, and then break out.’
A pioneer of Chicago house music and arguably one of the greatest DJs of all time, Derrick Carter makes the XOYO booth his home every Saturday in May as he becomes the latest Pleasurehood resident, alongside a slew of very special guests.
For his final week, Derrick brings us his fabled ‘Queen’ party usually held at Smartbar in Chicago, every Sunday night, bringing with him Michael Serafini who he has ran the party with since its conception alongside the late Frankie Knuckles. Queen has gone on to legendary status as it became one of Chicago’s biggest parties, garnering such a reputation that people travel far and wide to reach.
