Dance music culture is built on the values of love, acceptance, and inclusivity, and throughout the culture’s evolution, there have been leaders who embody those values through their music.

In the scene today, DJ Susan is one of those leaders, and his charting release catalog, his celebrated DJ sets, and his champion record label, Hood Politics Records, all stem from his own mission to lift up the scene and the people in it.

The common denominator among his releases remains a fiery sense of high energy that encourages people to connect on the dancefloor. Whether the track is raw and bassline-driven or a smoother vocal cut, the feeling is uplifting and just plain fun.

With Hood Politics, Glathe set out to be the label he didn’t get to connect with when he was coming up. A label that will welcome artists into a strong and supportive family, where the goal is nothing more than giving a platform for great music regardless of clout or connections.

True leaders don’t care for clout and connections. They care about love, acceptance, and inclusivity. True leaders built dance music culture, and DJ Susan is building something big.
