Toronto party promoter and DJ Scooter McCreight wants to go deep and dirty with you on Saturday as he delivers his furry Cub Camp magic to Atlanta.
For his first DJ gig in Atlanta, McCreight hits town to join DJ forces with Silk Wolf and King Atlas for a night of trashy, alterna-queer fun with Trashed! #9 Death of Summer at MJQ. So we chatted with him about his popular Cub Camp parties, his sexy calendar with Atlanta ties and what he's got in store for his queer fans.
You've built up quite the dirty furry fan base with your Cub Camp parties. How did you develop that?
I launched the party in Toronto four years ago when the scene was really missing an outlet for queers who listened to underground house music. I also not so secretly wanted an event for bearded tattooed men to meet up and get laid. (Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought it was a good idea). The Toronto kids rammed the dance floor every month and eventually Eastern Bloc in NYC contacted me to come and start throwing the party there. Later we also brought it to San Francisco and Provincetown, but right now that cub is in hibernation while I focus on new projects.
And let's not forget about that sexy calendar. The 2014 Cub Camp calendar included a year's worth of sexy furry guys and featured some Atlanta guys. How did you create the calendar and get hooked up with your Atlanta models?
The calendar was shot by Bradley Roberge, based out of LA. We shot the entire thing in two days and I asked a bunch of friends that I love to be in it. A few from Atlanta were included: Hero, Loki, and Rica Shay. I am grateful to have these amazing people to help me with my projects.
What's with the return of all this body hair and bearded gay boys?
A man in a beard is universally sexy. They are standard uniform in Toronto, almost everyone has one now. I shaved mine off this summer and have been getting twice as much action because of it.
So this is your first time to DJ in Atlanta? What do you have in store for your queer fans?
Deep House. Dirty techno. Pounding the dance floor. Ripping your face off and loving it.
Have you been to Atlanta before? Are there places and things you want to see and do while here?
DJ King Atlas invited me down to Atlanta for the first time a few years ago. We marched in the Pride parade and threw glitter at some protesters. They yelled back, “Get that devil's dirt away from us.” I have been in love with the city ever since and cannot wait to come DJ.
What inspires you inside the DJ booth?
What is you favorite song or artist to play at the moment?
“Afrika” by Frustra.
After Atlanta, what's next?
Spread my magic dust across the South and then head back up to Toronto for my monthly party Trade. We're doing a singlet party in October. Boners for everyone!
