Fact Mix 793: Byrell The Great

A high energy club mix from one of the contemporary ballroom scene’s key innovators.

Byrell The Great has been at the heart of New York’s ballroom scene for over a decade, notably as one of the top DJs in the youth-driven kiki subculture. His music reflects the high energy nature of kiki balls, combining classic ballroom sounds with a contemporary flair for production. His contributions to 2016’s Qweendom compilation in 2016 were among the year’s best club tracks, and his subsequent projects, including 2018’s Chopped Cheese and 2019’s The Book of Vanity, have cemented his reputation as one of ballroom’s key innovators.

On this week’s Fact Mix, Byrell The Great delivers a straight-up club mix featuring tracks from himself and contemporaries LSDXOXO and Divoli S’vere, as well as Leonce, DJ Swisha, Bored Lord and more. “I wanted listeners to feel like we were back in the clubs cutting up on the dance floor,” says Byrell The Great. “No matter where you from or what you give, as long as you like dancing to club music you’ll dance to this mix!”

Byrell The Great’s latest EP, a collaboration with Precious titled Snack Time, is available now. Find the rest of Byrell The Great’s music at Bandcamp.
