  • Derrick Carter is taking over Saturdays at London's XOYO in May. The Chicago house pioneer will own the club's Pleasurehood series for the month—four weekends in total. Joining him for opening night on May 4th will be fellow Chicagoan Honey Dijon, while the second week he plays all night long to celebrate his 20-year career. For Carter's third Saturday, he'll dig deep into his disco collection for the night. To close out the run, he'll bring his long-running Queen! night from smartbar to Shoreditch on May 25th. His party cofounder Michael Serafini will come along for the ride. (The late Frankie Knuckles was also among Queen!'s founders.) "My aim remains the same every week," Carter says. "I come in, blow your party the fuck up, and then break out."
