Russell Small—half of the gay U.K. DJ sensation Freemasons—delivered his new tricks, treats and tracks to a packed dance floor at Heretic on Friday. Nothing says Happy Fourth! like a British invasion.
And true to form, Small worked with a smile on his face late into the morning. Maybe it was the shirtless hunks that kept him happy. Or watching them do their thing with their hands in the air to a Freemasons beat.
In other words, just like the last time he worked the tight quarters of the Heretic DJ booth.
“I think working with a smile on your face is one of the things [that sets Freemasons apart]. Lots of miserable DJs out there,” Small told us in an interview ahead of his most recent Atlanta stop.
The event aso benefitted Joining Hearts, which hosts its annual pool party that raises funds for HIV organizations on July 21.
