Bigie Meanmugg Talks Party Foul!, Risky Club Behavior, Electro-house, Hangouts With Z-Trip, and More

The name Bigie Meanmugg doesn't just allude to Shaun Cheney's stature or appearance. Its also a tip of the hat to the big sound of his frenetic disco-house and electo mixes, which have a flair for R&B smoothness, and knob-twisting bombast. He's also got ample talents in graphic design, as illustrated by the pimp-yet-pop appearance of his web site.

Bigie's also a core member of infamous musical instigators of the Party Foul! crew, which recently was revived by club night oblivion to once again become a premier hipster Valhalla, albeit on a monthly basis. Every four weeks or so, the Party Foulers take over CenPho gay bar Apollo's for an evening of effusive dance music and thrills aplenty. Most weekends, however, you can also catch him haunting Bar Smith as a regular at Sticky Fingers and Solstice.
