You'd be hard pressed to look past Sydney legends STEREOGAMOUS for a quick guide on what essentials you'd need for a good party. Dubbed 'The gayest band since the village people', they've been responsible for some of the sweatiest dancefloors this country (and the world) has ever experienced.
Made up of Paul Mac and Jonny Seymour, the pair have played in some of the world's biggest clubs, done reworks of tunes from queen Kylie Minogue, George Michael, Sia, LCD Soundsystem, The Prests and more, released a couple of their own tunes and best of all, have had fun doing it all.
They're set to play at FBi Turns 15 this Saturday - a huge festival celebrating local Sydney institution FBi Radio's 15th birthday.
It's a festival, fundraiser and birthday bash all rolled into one with a heavyweight all-Australian lineup of acts who have been part of and contributed to the station's history, and are also driving its future.

Featuring bands like Cloud Control, Tropical Fuck Storm & Body Type, DJs CC:Disco!, Andy Garvey & Adi Toohey, producers Jensen Interceptor & DJ Plead and heaps more, it's going down across three stages at Manning House.
Ahead of the festival, Stereogamous have given us a rundown of their top five most colourful party tracks right to get you in the party mood for the weekend.
Charli XCX 'Focus (Yaeji Remix)'
Charli dedicated this track to her LGBT friends at her recent gig. The whole room squealed enthusiastically. Princess Yaeji on remix ups the saccharine into the ionosphere.
Brendan Maclean 'Where’s The Miracle'
Brendan is our gaydopted nephew. This banging song celebrates triumph in adversity. Finding hope on the dance floor is why we dance till dawn.
Handsome 'Save Some Love'
This modern day queer anthem is rich in beautiful melancholy & pathos for a tears on the dance floor moment.
The Presets 'Tools Down (Stereogamous Remix)'
We’re in long term avuncular relationship with dear Kim & Julian. This remix takes their Jake Sheers anthem into even gayer & fey-er territory.
Kira Puru 'Molotov'
The marvellous Kira’s incredible EP adds more fuel to her wonderful canon of incendiary chemical funk.
