DJ Polo promises heat at the Latin White Party

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Latin White Party
April 17
Neighbours Nightclub


Three years ago, DJ Polo, a local Latin music DJ, asked himself, 'Why don't we have an annual 'White Party' like other major U.S. cities?'

Combining his love of music, energy, and utilizing his connections with Neighbours Nightclub (1509 Broadway) and Entre Hermanos, DJ Polo and company put together the very first Noche Latina 'Latin White Party.' Banking off the success of the last two years, Polo is insistent that this year's party will be bigger and hotter than ever!

'The last two parties have been amazing,' DJ Polo told Seattle Gay News. 'Everyone is invited, it's not just a Latino party.'

Polo explained that the meaning behind wearing white to the party is to represent 'that we are pure in our own way.'

'To be honest, I had my doubts about the very first Latin White Party in 2009,' he admits. 'I didn't know if anyone would embrace the theme of dressing in white. But when the big day arrived and I looked out over the dance floor all I could see was a sea of white. It was a great moment.'

'The Latin White Party is all about showing up, having a great time, and showing off your dance moves while rocking white dresses, shirts, hats, or whatever creative clothing you come up with,' he said.

DJ Polo is a mover in the Seattle Latin DJ scene. He's been spinning since 2000 and has played gigs from Long Beach, California, to Miami, Florida. In 2010, Polo began to carve a name for himself in the Vancouver, B.C., Latin scene as well.

'This year, it's going to be a wild party,' said Polo. 'We are bringing a DJ and producer all the way from Mexico City.'

Guest DJ Yaxkin Retrodisko is one of the most well-known DJs in Mexico and also one of its most notable music collectors, with over 14,000 records in his crates.

Born and raised in México, living in U.S. and South America, Yaxkin Retrodisko spreads his influence on music listeners around the world. He started out as a DJ in 1985 and his career quickly took off. By 1992, he was already a well-known DJ and one of the true founders of house music culture in his country. During that time he was resident DJ in many legendary clubs. His success as a remixer and producer led him to work or collaborate with many more mainstream artists from Mexico and the U.S.

Entre Hermanos, Seattle's Latino LGBT organization that works to promote the health and well-being of the Latino LGBT community in a culturally appropriate environment through disease prevention, education, support services, advocacy, and community building, will be pulling out all the stops. For one night, Neighbours will transform into a white-clad palace, with stunning set decorations adding to a spectacular night of community and music.

'We'll see you on the dance floor April 17,' said Polo. 'Work it!'
