This week, KEXP is featuring songs chosen to celebrate Pride, as curated by KEXP's DJ Riz and a very special guest (and former KEXP DJ) El Toro. 


Baronhawk Poitier is a busy man: not only is he a long-running DJ/producer, but he's also a professional dancer and co-founder of the NeedlExchange crew and club night in his hometown of Washington, D.C.

When Honey Soundsystem Records asked Baronhawk Poitier to make them an EP "he would want to dance to", he replied, "Oh Honey, I have never made any that I didn’t." Check out the title track from his latest dancefloor soundtrack.
