Hey out there, The Coast got you covered. Here's what's up Saturday night: you're gonna get turnt with your friends, drink some of that purp, and then get greasy at Sugar 2: Deep Fried Fun. It's the next episode of a very sweet dance party hosted by DJ Festive Special (Andrew Neville), with bass-heavy DJ Fadzwa and the trap king DJ James Reid. It'll be a party-mix of pop, hip hop, house, dance hall, R&B, new wave and "whatever." And you better know by now that I'm down for whatever. 

If you were at the first Sugar, you'll remember that Gus's Club was jammed to the max. Once again, it'll be tight. To get you pumped up for the sweetness, we've got some sweet talk with the Festive Special himself. We also asked the super chef to whip up a deep-fried dance mix, which you can taste below. Get your sample on and see you there.

What snack would Young Thug be?
Surati Delight. It’s this Indian-Canadian snack mix you can buy at Indian and Asian grocery stores. It’s got some nuts and some potato sticks and peas and all kinds of other salty treats. It’s a really complex and rich snack mix.

Which fast food item would Drake be?
Flamethrower Burger from Dairy Queen, obviously.

Would you rather be in Mumford & Sons or U2?
U2 make more money and it’s probably less work and they at least have, like, five good songs. The Mumfords can’t really hold a candle to Bono, Edge and the rest of the guys.

Which Canadian band would you go on tour with?

Who would play you in a movie about your life?
Strictly CGI and voiced by Jon Lovitz

What's your mall Food Court kiosk go-to?
Manchu Wok* hands down.  *Editor's note: TRUUU

What's your favourite place to dance in Halifax?
I don’t know. Anywhere that is actually like a club always kind of scares me because I’m worried some 20 year old is going to say something snide to me or punch me or something. Gus’ Pub is actually a pretty nice place to dance if you supplement the PA a little bit.

What three songs best represent you?
American Football - Never Meant
Cap’n Jazz - Yes I Am Talking To You
The Promise Ring - Why Did We Ever Meet?

What's your favourite sweet treat?
Caramilk Bar

What's your favourite salty treat?
Covered Bridge Salt N’ Vinegars

What's your favourite anime?
Neon Genesis Evangelion

What member of TLC are you?
Theresa Caputo
