Deep Sugar DC
Deep Sugar is a Baltimore based event formerly at the seminal Paradox venue (10 years). DS as it is lovingly called also holds residency in the District (Washington, DC) at U Street Music Hall periodically throughout the year. A Deep Sugar party is a multicultural and extremely diverse coming together of like minded people! They come to dance and celebrate the music in a pure underground experience that takes you back to the fundamentals of clubbing. For Deep Sugar heads - this is not just a lifestyle..it's church.
The story began in 2013 when international dance music recording artist Ultra Naté along with DJ Lisa Moody and key friends, artists & DJs from Baltimore made a commitment to give something back to the scene and keep it thriving. Their goal was to create a world-renowned, marquis dance party that follows in the footsteps of Paradise Garage, Zanzibar, Odell's, The Warehouse, Shelter, Club Fantasy and Body & Soul. Meaning it goes beyond being just another party but more of a cultural and spiritual experience. A safe space to tune the stress and cares of the world out and let your soul soar!
The Deep Sugar party showcases Ultra & Lisa as "The Sugar Girl Squad" DJ duo as well as Baltimore resident DJs and world-renowned guest DJs and performing artists. Past performances have included Jody Watley, Tony Humphries, DJ Spen, SuSu Bobien, DJ Marley Marl, Terry Hunter, Martha Wash, CeCe Peniston, Louie Vega, Jocelyn Brown, Mr. V, Barbara Tucker, David Morales, Kathy Sledge, Crystal Waters, Colton Ford, Quentin Harris, Inaya Day, The Elders, Kevin Aviance, Timmy Regisford, Monique Bingham, Osunlade, Byron Stingly, Sting International, Dajae, Dimitri From Paris, ADEVA, Soul Clap, Jihad Muhammad, Maysa, Teddy Douglas, Joe Clausell, Donna Edwards, Thommy Davis, Charles Feelgood, MURK, The Jungle Brothers, Tedd Patterson, Kenny Dope, Oji & Pope, Terry Hunter, Wayne Williams, Ann Nesby and Thomas Dolby - to name a few.
The Deep Sugar sound is characterized by a blend of soulful house with dance and disco classics thrown in, while giving a nod to some of the harder soulful tech sounds - a formula that has kept Sugar party goers' feet rooted to the dance floor remembering the past and looking towards the future.
Deep Sugar moves forward into the new world of music with a vision, a dream, plenty of heart, soul and two kick ass chicks!
I am Ultra Naté and am based in Baltimore, Maryland as a singer, songwriter, DJ, producer and promoter. I have released eight studio LPs [1990-2013] and travel around the globe performing and spinning live for a variety of audiences.
I've been writing my own songs since the beginning of my career. This was pivotal in establishing me as an artist with a distinct style all my own. I was one of the first artists in house/dance music signed to a major record deal with Warner Brothers in the UK in 1989 and I have more than 25 years of experience making groundbreaking music having collaborated with a wide array of artists such as: The Basement Boys, Nellee Hooper, D-Inflience, Mood II Swing, Nona Hendryx, Lenny Kravitz, N'Dea Davenport, DJ Class, NERVO, Tony Moran, StoneBridge, Todd Terry, David Morales, Michele Williams (of Destiny's Child), Boy George, Morgan Page, Quentin Harris and others!
My sound embraces a variety of genres including house, soul, disco, electro pop, R&B/hiphop and rock and I am honored to be considered an icon of the Dance and LGBT communities worldwide.
The house that dj Vanniety Kills built has become a fixture on D.C.’s DJ circuit. She’s become notorious for her house parties, daytime dances, and just about everything else in between. Professional by day, turntable manipulator by night, Vanniety Kills has an ear for music, creating DJ booth concoctions that sound like they were born that way. But it’s her ability to read a crowd that’s elevated her from good to great. Whether it’s her Ladies of the Underground showcase; OverEasy, her summer tea dance for the queer girl community; or Cadence, a monthly drum and bass showcase; she dabbles in a little bit of everything that makes hips shake. And just as she’s avoided musical niches, she’s also managed to not be pigeonholed as a selector for just queer events. She’s more about zig-zagging between scenes and uniting them on the dance floor.
Deep Sugar returns for a New Year's weekend celebration! The Sugar Girl Squad ULTRA NATé & LISA MOODY will put a final sprinkling of magical fairy dust on the District in 2017 with massive beats and always super thick vibes. To make it extra special, one of DC’s finest Vanniety Kills (Annie Winn) will be on the warm-up duties. Everything’s right on Saturday night in the underground!
