Last party of the year and it’s a big one. Bring in the New Year with Homoelectric at New Century, Sunday December 31st, 2023 with Artwork, DJ Paulette, Gina Breeze, Jamie Bull and Will Tramp.
Busy festival weekend again with sets at Brighton Pride in the Fabuloso tent and Wilderness Festival alongside Kerri Chandler. See you on the dancefloor.
It’s a rainy weekend for festivals but I’m representing hard for Manchester. Catch me this weekend at MIF, Beatherder and Glitterbox at Hi Ibiza.
If you were there, this is what you heard and saw and if you weren’t this is what you missed. Mighty Hoopla AfterParty at Electric Brixton – you were the most.
I’m playing an exclusive set at Hatch Manchester alongside @chrismasseymusic and headlined by @hotsince82 – with @neildiablo and @ginabreeze beaming in from a secret special rooftop and the magic of @ee #5g on 19th August. Apply for tickets at ee.co.uk/parallel.
DJ PAULETTE presents TOGETHER is about bringing all the DJs and the Manchester community together – waking up and gently moving out of the lockdown to celebrate as one at our mini festival in the sunshine. There’s food, there’s drink, it’s family AND dog friendly, it’s fully socially distanced fun, it’s enjoying music with real people IN REAL LIFE and best of all – it’s FREE. It’s on from May 31 – August 13, 2021. Read on.

It is a rare occasion when the planets align in such a way that a great party, its solid line up and a banging set in a banging room is captured live for diffusion later. Here is the opening of my set from Homoelectric at Hidden, February 8, 2020 just for you.
I am buzzing to have been picked to join the squad for Glitterbox, which returns to Printworks, London on Saturday 7th March with another impressive offering of cutting edge production, DJs and disco extravaganza, with an original NYC ballroom twist. This party is now SOLD OUT please ONLY check Kaboodle for tickets for resale.
I’m honoured to be part of the line up for the inaugural party for Honey Dijon’s ‘Full Fantasy’ a London residency in association with Percolate, Pxssy Palace and Little Gay Brother which starts February 14th at Corsica Studios. Four parties, Four locations, Four opportunities to live your best life in a club and on the dancefloor. Tickets were available through Resident Advisor but PENETRATE is now SOLD OUT.
Homoelectric returns to its spiritual home at Hidden in Manchester for bass buggin spiritual outer space voodoo dancing. Homoelectric is for Homos, Lesbos, Don’t knows and Disko Asbos. Music is life. It’s been a while. I’m so ready to get saucy on that top floor…
Get sober. Stay fresh. Keep moving. Clubs / bars, brands and brewers are getting positively behind non-drinkers here in Manchester. Join us for a free daytime festival at Wilson’s Social The Low & No Festival – Free Entry on Saturday January 25th from midday till 5pm. Then roll with me to The Pen and Pencil from 8pm – 2am for seven hours of disco, funk and soul classics that will remind you what your dancing feet are for.

Very excited that @dj_paulette1 joins the @homoelectric party on February 8th A true hero with a journey that spans 3decades . There seems to be an explosion of love for her right now that reminds when Greg Wilson reappeared on the scene 16 years ago . Her cult following just grows and like a fine wine I think we are now witnessing her in her prime The people’s DJ 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🧚🏿♂️🧚🏿♂️🧚🏿♂️❤️❤️❤️❤️✊🏻🙏🏽
It’s such a massive boost when someone you love, respect and look up to as a maverick and a game changer says nice things about you. This is what Luke Unabomber had to say that brought the sun out on a very moody day.
This New Year’s Eve (Tuesday December 31st, 2019 to be precise) I’m keeping it local, ringing out the old and bringing in the New at the wonderful Lead Station in Chorlton. I’ll be on the decks from 7pm till 1pm.
On Friday December 27th, LHM and The Cause team up to celebrate three decades of London house on Friday Dec 27th. Some of the capital’s most important (and enduring) house DJs, pivotal in moulding our city’s house scene over the last thirty years will keep you entertained from 6pm until 6am. All DJs held residencies or ran some of London’s most seminal house nights.
Come and celebrate the holidays with BLEND – we’re having a Mad Friday at YES.
Join us on Friday December 20th for a Big Christmas (decorations and all) do in the basement – and get it done, right festive-like with two local legends, DJ Paulette and Stuart Richards (and not one Christmas tune in earshot) …
In Gabriel Szatan’s own words: And it’s a testament to Mancunian hardiness that hundreds brave the arctic conditions to cavort to local hero DJ Paulette doling out fruity house numbers on an alfresco terrace.

Yes it’s that time again – it’s the last Bank Holiday of the year (so we all get a long break just when we needed it), the sun is most definitely OUT and everything and everywhere in Manchester is draped, painted, themed and chimes with the clarion call of Gay Pride. This is not a drill – we’re here, we’re queer, so it would be rude not to get into it 😀
