Born from a monthly party in Washington, DC, the Sleaze DJs have a mission to deliver an aural evocation of bygone eras of the LGBTQ underground in the context of a modern club experience. Combining their love of disco, house, and everything in between (and beyond), DJs Lemz and Keenan Orr strive to push sonic boundaries while simultaneously paying deference to a past personified by its music and dance floors.
Lemz makes the dance floor feel like both a home and an escape. As a DJ/producer, his club sets and original productions run the gamut from disco, house, electro, and club – even a bit of top 40 pop when the time is right – plus he can read almost any crowd like an open book. Behind a pair of Technics since the age of 12, Lemz’s early foundation in the craft led to a seemingly effortless skill that belies his laser-driven focus and constant challenge to surprise, and thrill, his audiences. Born in California and raised in Baltimore, the now DC-resident has racked up an impressive roster of parties (Sleaze, Rough House) and residencies in our nation’s capital with seemingly no intention of slowing down. It may look like he wants to rule the scene, but he really just wants to make you dance.
Keenan Orr
Keenan Orr is a Washington, DC-based DJ whose sound bounces from Chicago House, Baltimore Club, Electro, Disco and classics of the 80's and 90's, Keenan Orr has landed residencies at a number of clubs around the city, including Cobalt, Marvin, and Sleaze Party at Wonderland. Known for clean mixing and a good ear for music, Orr makes a lasting impression on all that have the chance to experience his sets.
Outputmessage is D.C.-based electronic music artist Bernard Farley. A math whiz by day (he devises math content for standardized tests as a test developer for American Institutes for Research), Farley channels his technical mind into his creative work as singer, producer, and DJ. In 2014, he released The Infinite Void, a spacious full-length concept album that explores the cosmos through a story arc of techno, house and pop. D.C Music Download has called The Infinite Void one of the best electronic albums of the year. No stranger to producing stand-out dance music, Farley is also a member of indie-dance group Volta Bureau whose song, "Alley Cat" topped the Beatport indie-dance chart for several weeks.
