/ Turn the Beat Around / Music / Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2019 Special – Part 1


It’s the biggest LGBTIQ event of the year, the world famous Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, so it’s only fitting that we celebrate with a dedicated show to the party of all parties. In this episode of Turn The Beat Around we spin a selection of the best club anthems from the last 12 months and a couple of classic big room 90s anthems that will bring back some memories.  In Part One of the podcast we also chat with Melbourne DJ, Butch Le Butch on the eve of his Mardi Gras DJ debut and find out what he has instore for when he mans the decks, at the official after party this year. Happy Mardi Gras Joysters.
