DJ Tony Moran will make Peach Party dance

Add this share

When you want to kickoff a three-day party, who better to manhandle the DJ booth than Tony Moran. Right? Right. He returns to Atlanta on Friday to make you and the Heretic his dancing bitch.

Moran delighted an outdoor crowdduring the inaugural Peach Party last year, so it's little wonder that he's back to get things started. Project Q Atlanta talked with Moran ahead of his gig, how he keeps it fresh for his dancing queens and what's next for him.

Looking forward to returning to Atlanta? What's it like to come back?

I feel like I am coming home after hitting the last home run in the World Series for the Braves. I am excited, prepared and can feel the overwhelming good feelings around me.

It was just in March when the boys at Jungle got to enjoy your work in the DJ booth. How will this gig at Peach Party be different?

You boys certainly are not lacking in the creativity department and I will be there with music and fresh excitement. It's been too long since I've been with my old friends at the Heretic.

You spin at big outdoor events and indoor spaces, too. How do you approach an intimate space like Heretic?

You don't let them feel like you've got them in a smaller space. When you are having fun and surrounded by friendly faces, the size of the space does not matter. That is my craft. To make you feel like you can be anywhere you wan to be while you moving your feet.

What inspires you inside the DJ booth?

The responsibility to deliver.

What is your favorite song, or artist, to play at the moment?

My new Martha Wash, “I'm Not Coming a Down ” which is Top 5 on Billboard right now.

After Atlanta, what's next for you?

The day after, I head to The Manor in Fort Lauderdale. It's a great group of people and I love it there, too.

Any closing thoughts?

Thank you for all the support for so long. I feel as excited as when I first started. I love doing my podcasts too, but will only continue if people continue subscribing. The plays are amazing and I am surely humbled. But being a subscriber is like being accepted whole-heartedly into your musical family. That is I want to feel like.
