Heralded as "The U.S. King of Cosmic Disco"
As owner of the record labels Lovedancing, Whiskey Disco and Whiskey Disco Small Batch, Sleazy McQueen has helped to give the 'Nu-Disco' scene an element of referential class. With remarkably well produced re-works and originals, the Sleazy sound combines the dirty fun of seventies funk with the hypnotic rhythms of deep house.
As a dj, he has toured for the last fifteen years across 5 continents and will add Australia in March of 2018. Sleazy has over 100 releases on Indy and major labels around the world and has been tapped by vintage disco artists to underground house heroes to remix their work in a style inimitably... sleazy.
Crate-digger, DJ, remixer, producer, musical consultant, mixing and mastering engineer, A&R, event organizer, social worker, and all around hustler, Dustin Alexander, takes on quite a number of duties, these days.
For a long time, bouncing from Detroit to Kalamazoo, much of his role as a DJ and producer took a backseat to his other ventures. But in recent years, under the alias Pontchartrain, and now stationed permanently in the Motor City, he rode atop the wave of new-gen disco editors and DJs to prominence and popularity with cuts approached more like research projects in dance, rather than simple DJ tools. Now, years later his decade-plus of experience behind the decks, working closely with prominent mentors, and his dedication to learning from the past, has projected him fully into the house and disco world.
