Born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam, Bongz Nguyen aka Lotus Disco is known as the “new young Queen of Disco” and he literally was the biggest DJ out there in that forgotten corner of underground dance music.
After conquering Asia and smashing parties and festivals from Beijing to Shanghai and from Hanoi to Saigon, Lotus Disco took the leap of Disco faith and moved to San Francisco, a city yearning for a DJ jus’ like Lotus Disco. His sets are a ‘musical liberation’ but so much mo’, he is probably the most physical DJ you will witness anywhere.
Lotus Disco sees himself as a drag Queen without make up, he loves and lives the Disco culture and can even be found voguing behind the decks during his explosive and vibrant Disco sets. Now criss-crossing the USA most weekends to DJ, Lotus Disco has been head hunted by UK promoters and record labels alike and is set to take Europe by storm too in 2017. Kaiku Club in Helsinki, Finland invited Lotus Disco to play and the hallowed Horse Meat Disco nights in London also have had Lotus Disco grace their Disco drenched decks. His first compilation album #Love#Hope#Desire will be released by the UK’s favourite Soul stable, Expansion early 2017 and in January Lotus Disco travels back home to Asia to pop his Boiler Room cherry. We can’t wait for the newly crowned Queen of Disco to hold court at SSW and share his gems and pearls of vinyl goodness. Remember where you saw him first!
