Celebrating community through the liberating power of dance music

RAR Music

Even though the live entertainment industry is faced with a great challenge right now, artists are resilient by nature and pushing against restraint is our duty. We will soon be dancing together again as nothing comes close to the beauty of human interaction, and human interaction is dance music’s primal function.

Founded by DJ Lorant Duzgun in 2010, Royal Advisor Records (RAR) is celebrating a decade of dance music, parties, remixes, and community. DJ Lorant created RAR to provide an open space for queer artists and allies to develop fresh, original work to express their unique visions.

In the last 10 years, RAR has gained a reputation for its innovative collaborations with artists such as Will Sheridan, AB Soto, The Illustrious Blacks, SAMN, and Sappho’s Journey. Producers Morsy, Sri Rao, Trulyors, and Larry Rocca, who are avid supporters of the LGBTQ community, have also released work under the imprint.

#RAR10 will kick off with the introduction of London-based artist Tareq and continue throughout 2020 with celebrations, remixes of the label’s staple tracks, and new hits.
