DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: First Birthday / Holiday Edition July 2 to July 5

We officially did it! This is the first birthday edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up! Looking back at our first edition of the round up, a lot has changed over the past year. The first thing that jumps out at us is how damn long this thing has become each week. The format has changed a bit too, but we hope it still gives you all the great information you need to plan your weekend on the dance floors of DC. A huge thanks to Graham Jackson for designing our special birthday banner. A wonderful surprise! Thank you so much Graham for your love, support and amazing design work over the past year. We couldn’t do it without you!

dchg first birthday

We need to get through this special first birthday / holiday edition quickly, as we’ve got to prepare for a couple of super cool events this weekend. Let’s just say that last week’s VINE party at The Dance Loft was really special. Those who were there will know. Heard some incredible sets from mad-talented local DJs. Special mentions go to Jubilee Ramirez, Martín Miguel, Remote CtrlTeam ZapataSarah MyersKowli, Joe LMeegs Philco and, of course, Lisa Frank, who wowed the crowd with her latest productions. An amazing event all round, and we can’t wait until the next one. Miss it at your own risk!

Before we dive in to the picks, we’ve got a great soundtrack to this week’s post. Here’s Andy Grant‘s all vinyl set from the Flash Rooftop for Nü Androids presents Stefano Noferini last week. Near three and a half hours of quality grooves, old and new, taking you on a journey through some slow house and nu disco jams, through chill breaks, then finishing up with deep tracks for the dance floor.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC June 25 to June 28

Welcome to the 52nd weekly edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up. That’s right: we’ve been dedicating hours each week for the past year to summarizing and writing up all the best underground house and electronic music events in and around DC. What started off as a minor task has mushroomed into an epic endeavor each and every week, with the number of events on our radar steadily increasing as promoters started sending things our way and PR companies began asking us to big up their artists. Our #1 rule when we started this thing was that we had to be disciplined about it, and we had to do it for at least one year. Well, we’ve now reached that goal. Will we carry on into year 2, or will this be the final edition? Haven’t decided yet. We could certainly use the time for other creative pursuits. What do you think? If you think we should continue, please let us know.

Anyway, let’s talk about last weekend. On Friday, we headed up to the 6 year anniversary of Four Hours of Funk in Baltimore, and it was seriously impressive! Within 15 minutes of the doors opening at 10pm, the place was packed with dancers grooving to residents Graham Hatke Stephen Fleg, and the party was on! DC take note…that’s how it’s done. None of this not showing up before midnight, then standing around for a couple of hours before an hour of dancing bullshit. If you truly love the music and you’re going out to dance, then dance. Hoping to see more of this on our home turf. As always, special guest Rahaan delivered the goods. The place was hot and sweaty, but we danced our asses off and left with huge smiles.

Also of note last weekend was the debut of House-n-U at Zeba Bar, with special guest Trinidadian Deep. The night got off to a slow start due to the torrential rain, but once the rain stopped, the place filled up, the baby powder was deployed, and the place started jumping! A big shout to residents Andrew Hogans and Derrick Coleman for a great start to what promises to become a regular fixture on the underground house music scene here in the District. Looking forward to the next one!

Before we get into this week’s picks, a quick reminder about the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast series, which features mixes from top local talent in and around our fine city.  We’ve been slacking off a bit in terms of chasing down new podcasts, and a few local DJs who’ve previously promised us mixes have been slacking off (you know who you are!). Hopefully we’ll get back to a decent cadence soon once the mixes start flowing back in. In the mean time, here’s a playlist with all the mixes in the podcast series so far. We’ve also included Brian Monaco‘s contribution over on Mixcloud.

 

With all that out of the way, let’s dig into this week’s picks. We’ll need to be brief this week due to other priorities, so browse the picks, check the listings, and have a great weekend out on the dance floors of DC.

Thursday Picks

Up on the new rooftop dance floor, our very own Andy Grant will be spinning an all vinyl set form 8pm until 12am under the warm summer night sky.

Other options for the night include RNSRooftop Retox industry night at Lost Society, with RNS delivering the deep house vibes open to close, or if drum and bass is what you’re looking for, The Blackout Tour hits U Street Music Hall, with Black Sun Empire, The Upbeats and State of Mind serving up the beats.

Out in the VA ‘burbs, the Transit crew are at it again at The Auld Shebeen in Fairfax, with Lady Shah serving up the drum and bass with full techno support from Rodd Sim, Ivan Rios and Tim Humphrey. Always a strong recommendation from us if you don’t feel like making the trek into the city.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC June 18 to June 21

Here we go with the 51st edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up. That’s right: we’ve been publishing our weekly round up of all the best underground house and electronic music events for nearly a year now, and we hope you are finding it useful. Please reach out and let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. We love hearing from our readers!

Last weekend was all about Love Triangle, the fund raising event featuring three of our fine city’s top clubs across three nights to raise money for an anonymous member of our community who needs our help, and we’re pleased to say the event was a huge success! Over $7,000 was raised over the course of the weekend, with DJ’s donating their DJ fees, clubs donating door proceeds and individuals making donations. Big shouts go out to FlashU Street Music Hall and Eighteenth Street Lounge for donating proceeds to the cause, and to the organizers of Booty Rex Pride Party at the Black Cat on Friday, who donated the proceeds from their event (over $650!). Also, big thanks to the DC Brau Pride Parade Walkers for their donation. It really has been amazing to see our community come together to help a friend in need, and we’re proud to have been part of something so positive. Huge respect to David Rosenberg for putting everything together and driving it forward, and to Vanniety Kills for her endless hard work in the run up to Love Triangle and throughout the weekend. You guys are amazing! While the Love Triangle weekend is now over, the fund raising campaign continues. Please head over to the crowd funding site and donate whatever you can to this worthy cause. A wonderful young person is fighting for her life, and every penny donated goes to help her fight this battle:

Love Triangle Fund Raising Site

Right, so what’s on the cards for this week? Plenty to choose from, so let’s dive straight into the picks for this weekend. Don’t forget to click through to any events you plan on attending and click Join, and make sure you check the full listings after you’ve read the picks.

Thursday Picks

Cadence presents DLR with Drone and Troy:TallentAgent:137 at Flash, with Jesse Split and DJ Sparkle in the Flash Bar, and Vincenzo (Anjunadeep, Poker Flat | Berlin) with Rosario and Andy Grant on the Flash Rooftop

Top pick for Thursday is this month’s edition of Cadence at Flash, which features a packed lineup, with DLR (Dispatch | Metalheadz) headlining the main room, throwing down the quality drum and bass with solid local support from Drone and Troy:TallentAgent:137, while Jesse Split and DJ Sparkle bring the house vibes down in the Flash Bar. The big news is that the Flash Rooftop will be open tomorrow, and Cadence  have locked down none other than last Saturday’s Flash headliner Vincenzo (Anjunadeep, Poker Flat | Berlin) to play the rooftop, going back to back with Deep Secrets’ Rosario, with early support from Andy Grant (DC House Grooves), who’ll be leaving the vinyl at home for a change. Thursday nights are always the best at Flash, so grab your advanced tickets now and get ready for a solid night across three dance floors! Second release advanced tickets are still available for $8 from Ticketfly, more on the door. Cover is for all three levels!

https://www.facebook.com/events/954781284566922/

The Nexus: DJ Showcase at Zeba Bar

For something a bit different on Thursday night, check out The Nexus: DJ Showcase from Urban Artistry and The International Soul Society Festival at Zeba Bar, where local DJs and turntablists will be showcasing their skills across multiple genres representing urban dance culture. Sounds like an interesting night. $5 cover, 21+.

https://www.facebook.com/events/929243343765034/

Friday Picks

WTF?! radio show with Corduroy Mavericks, Kochi & DJ Improvize on Sugar Shack Recordings

Tune in to Sugar Shack on Friday for quality music from Kochi and special guest DJ Improvize from 5pm to 7p ET. Always a great way to get warmed up for a Friday night on the town,

https://www.facebook.com/events/706085202852679/

4 Hours of Funk 6 Year Anniversary with DJ Rahaan at The Windup Space, Baltimore

Top pick for Friday night is the 4 Hours of Funk 6 Year Anniversary with DJ Rahaan at The Windup Space in Baltimore. If you’re not familiar with Rahaan,  just watch this video from Bring the Heat‘s first party in 2004:

That’s right… Rahaan‘s the DJ who got the crowd so hyped that when the power went out, they just kept the vibe going, and when the power came back on, he mixed seamlessly into the crowd as if nothing had happened. Well, he’ll be in Baltimore on Friday, along with all the heads who know what’s what. We were lucky enough to catch Rahaan twice in London a couple of years back, first at Boiler Room London, then at up and coming underground house night Thunder, and neither time did he disappoint! Take it from us, if you’re in DC, you should make the trip to Baltimore for this one, and if you’re in Baltimore, this is where you should be on Friday! We’ll be present and correct on the dance floor, and we hope to see you there.

https://www.facebook.com/events/120563784941333/

Francesca Lombardo, Jimmy B, Philip Goyette; Caleb L’Etoile, PHILCO at Flash

Top night at Flash on Friday, with Crosstown Rebels’ Francesca Lombardo headlining the main floor, with support from Werd resident Jimmy B and Philip GoyettePhilco and Caleb L’Etoile hold things down open to close in the Flash Bar, and yes, the rooftop will be open, with Philip Goyette and Edo each playing extended sets. Quality across all three floors!

https://www.facebook.com/events/1582433292025830/

Safehouse with Ron Jackson and Pacific Fur Company at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar

Safehouse at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar is a great choice for quality music in an intimate space, and Ron Jackson and Pacific Fur Company deliver “…timeless jams, solid thumpers, and uncomfortable boogies” open to close. Sounds like a fun recipe to us! No cover, 21+.

https://www.facebook.com/events/706745802804689/

Saturday Picks

Sol Power Sunset Sessions Happy Hour on The Rock’n’Roll Hotel Rooftop

A great way to kick off your Saturday night out is the Sol Power Sunset Sessions Happy Hour on the Rock’n’Roll Hotel Rooftop from 5pm to 8pm. Deep, tropical, soulful and banging warm weather house grooves from the Sol Power All Stars crew.

https://www.facebook.com/events/826325834116276/

HOUSE – N – U with Andrew Hogans and special guest Trinidadian Deep at Zeba Bar

Our top pick for Saturday night is HOUSE – N – U at Zeba Bar with special guest Trinidadian Deep, making his first DC appearance, and local Andrew Hogans. We’ve been wanting to bring Trinidadian Deep to DC for some time, but the House – N – U crew beat us to the punch. The DC House Grooves crew will be in full effect at Zeba Bar on Saturday as sponsors of this party, and we hope to see you there too! If you’re not familiar with Trinidadian Deep, do your research. Real deep house for the heads. See you there on the dance floor!

https://www.facebook.com/events/787108914730428/

Alex Niggemann, Jus Nowhere b2b Jackson Ryland at Flash

Down at Flash on Saturday, Poker Flat‘s Alex Niggemann headlines the main floor, with support from locals Jus Nowhere and Jackson Ryland going back to back with an extended set. We’ve always liked Alex Niggemann‘s productions, and we’ve no doubt he’ll rock the main room at Flash#BODYFEEL take charge of the Flash Bar, with Dansman and Throe at the controls open to close. Presumably the rooftop will also be open, but no word yet on who will be making the musical selections. Advanced tickets are $8 from Ticketfly, more on the door.

https://www.facebook.com/events/486228438199102/

Organic Groove Saturdays with Katie Elder at The Red Maple

https://www.facebook.com/events/397523433706363/

Kowli Presents: Loren & Jarvi at The Dark Room, Baltimore

And we’ve perhaps saved the best for last, because for some proper after hours underground warehouse action on Saturday, Kowli Records is throwing another event at The Dark Room in Baltimore, with Detroit’s Loren and Chicago’s Jarvi, along with support from Ben Jenkins and residents Feroun and Novac. This one will go late, but make sure you get there before 3.30am, as the doors will close with no further entry. Advanced tickets are $10… details over on the event page. We’re hoping we can make it to Baltimore by the 3.30am deadline!

DC House Grooves Midweek Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC Wednesday June 17

Yep, it’s hump day again, and here’s our usual half assed, but semi-informative, Midweek Round Up, featuring all the repetitive electronic beats in the District this fine Wednesday evening. Big news tonight, as none other than UK tech house legend John Digweed will be gracing the CDJs at Flash, with support from Denver’s Greg Eversoul & Rodd Simm, while Sarah Myers takes the controls in the Flash Bar and Solomon Sanchez brings the vibes up on the rooftop. Tickets sold out a while back, but there should be a few spare tickets on the door if you want to join the flock and work up a midweek sweat on the dance floor. We’ve got to be honest here: we never really understood the hype around Diggers. We used to go to the early Bedrock events down on Hastings pier back in the old country in the early 90s, and we watched his star rise from there. Credit where credit is due: the boy’s done good. Just not really our cup of tea. Pro tip: make sure you catch Sarah‘s set down in the bar, and / or Solomon‘s up on the rooftop… and make sure you get there early to catch local Rodd Simm heating things up in the main room. Anyway, never mind what we think. If you want to catch an artist who usually plays festival main stages in your favorite local club, this is a great opportunity. If you haven’t got a ticket, though, get there early.

Just down U Street at U Street Music HallTreasure Fingers will be doing their thing, with support from Kry Wolf and local Ozker. Might be worth a look. Out in Fairfax, Transit at The Auld Shebeen promises anything but house. We’d prefer a bit of house music in the mix, but to each there own. Check it out if you fancy some beats out in the ‘burbs.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up, featuring all the best underground house and electronic music events in and around Washington DC this coming weekend. We’ve got everything you need to plan your weekend attack on the dance floors of DC.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC June 11 to June 14

So much going on in DC this weekend, we really don’t know where to start! Last weekend was simply amazing. Our Body Werk Summer Sessions party with Amir Alexander had such an amazing vibe that we’re still smiling several days later! Yes, we didn’t get the numbers we were hoping for, and yes, we didn’t recoup all our costs, but the right people were there with the right energy, and everyone had an amazing time! Amir Alexander delivered the best set we have ever heard him play, and we can’t wait until the next time he comes to DC. We’ll be back with more parties with similar caliber artists in future. If you missed out on this one, ask someone who was there, and make sure you don’t hear about the next one second hand!

OK, so what’s on the cards for this weekend? Well, first up, there’s Pride 2015, with an amazing lineup of underground events. We were kind of freaking out about how to cover pride, but then we called on our intrepid queer correspondent, NeedlXchange resident Tommy Cornelis to put something together, and he delivered an amazingly thorough run down of all the best underground events at Pride 2015. If you’re in town for Pride, or if that’s your main interest, make sure you check Tommy‘s Pride Underground 2015 post before diving too far in to this post :)

So that’s Pride dealt with. What else? Well this weekend also sees a major event that many of us on the DC scene have been looking forward to for the last couple of weeks, Love Triangle.

Love triangle

Three of DC’s top clubs coming together over three nights to help raise funds for someone from our community who has been afflicted by cancer.  We’ll be covering all three of the Love Triangle events in our picks, but you can head over to the Love Triangle event page for more details about what Love Triangle is all about, and how you can help someone dear to us who is in need. If you are unable to attend any of the Love Triangle events, but you would like to contribute, please consider making a contribution. Every contribution helps, and will make a big difference to a very special young lady who needs to focus all her energy on fighting for her life without financial worries:

http://www.youcaring.com/anonymous-recipient-363479

So we’ve mentioned Pride 2015. We’ve mentioned Love Triangle. What else? Well I guess we should mention that we’ve got not one, but two Body Werk events this weekend. Yeah, not content with two events last weekend, we’re pressing on with two more this weekend, and we really can’t wait! First up, we’ve got Body Werk in the Flash Bar with Andy Grant and Mazi this Friday, as part of the epic secretsundaze event at Flash, which also happens to be part of Love Triangle! Check the picks below for full details. Then we’ve also got Body Werk at DC9 Nightclub on Saturday night, with very special surprise guest Corduroy MavericksKochi and Ramirez on the main floor, and Leon Felipe up on the rooftop all night long. If you’ve attended a Body Werk event before, you know the drill by now. Nothing but quality underground house music from carefully curated local and guest DJs to get you moving on the dance floor all night long. Stop by one of our events this weekend and experience it for yourself!

I guess we’d better get on with the picks for this weekend, then. As is tradition, before we get into this weeks picks, we’ll need to give you a soundtrack. Well this week, we’ve got something a little bit special for you: in anticipation of Saturday’s Paradise Mirage party at U Street Music Hall,  DJ Lisa Frank and the TNX DJs have put together a couple of mixes featuring their favorites from the Paradise Garage era 1977 to 1987. Take your pick: both offer perfect soundtracks while you plan your dance floor strategy for the coming weekend :)

 

 

 Thursday Picks

Jacques Greene, Throe, Refugee b2b Tsurugi at Flash with Feel the Love Live in the Flash Bar

Our top pick for Thursday is Jacques Green at Flash, with support from #BODYFEEL‘s Throe and Refugee B2B Tsurugi. Should be a great night of genre bending electric beats on Flash‘s fine sound system.

https://www.facebook.com/events/1442603676051514/

The Business End with Wave Age and Philco at Velvet Lounge

For quality house, deep and tech all night long, check out Philco‘s regular night at Velvet LoungeThe Business End. Philco and Wave Age will be throwing down the tunes open to close, and with the outside patio open, it’s sure to be a fun night at Velvet!

https://www.facebook.com/events/1673073969579300/

Friday Picks

WTF?! radio show with Corduroy Mavericks and Joe Liehr on Sugar Shack Recordings

Our regular Friday radio pick, the WTF?! Radio Show this week features Corduroy Mavericks and one of our favorite local selectors Joe Liehr. Tune in to this one, people… seriously good tunes to start your Friday night off right from 5pm ET. Tune in at http://www.sugarshackrecordings.com.

https://www.facebook.com/events/358083377733650/

secretsundaze DC with Giles Smith, James Priestley & Brian Monaco at Flash with DC House Grooves presents Body Werk with Andy Grant & Mazi in the Flash Bar – LOVE TRIANGLE FUNDRAISER EVENT!

Top pick for Friday night without a shadow of a doubt is secretsundaze DC at Flash, with Giles Smith and Jason Priestley taking over the main room for extended sets, with support from our guest last week at Body WerkBrian Monaco. Meanwhile, down in the Flash BarBody Werk takes over, with Mazi R returning to the decks with Andy Grant open to close. This event is a Love Triangle Fundraiser Event! A portion of the door proceeds will be donated to the Love Triangle cause, and Andy Grant and Mazi R will also be donating their DJ fees from the bar. There will also be plenty of opportunities to donate to the cause during the event. We couldn’t be more excited about this event. Just a few years ago, we’d more or less given up on dance music, until a chance encounter with Giles Smith and James Priestley at a party (long story!) led us to getting sucked right back into the music scene… and we couldn’t be happier about that! Whatever your plans for Friday, make sure you stop by Flash. Even if you don’t want to go upstairs, there’s no cover for the Flash Bar, so stop in and dance with us for a while, and make a contribution to the Love Triangle cause while you are there!

Davidson Ospina with Raha Wala at Zeba Bar

Another great choice for Friday night is long serving NYC based DJ / producer Davidson Ospina with support from Raha Wala at Zeba. We haven’t been keeping up to date with Davidson‘s recent output, but we regularly bought his records through the 90s and 2000s, and we’re kind of curious to hear what he’s up to now. Definitely worth a look!

https://www.facebook.com/events/922677421125715/

Our parties at DC9 usually feature local DJs exclusively, but this week we are proud to present such a prolific international artist.

Finish off Pride weekend with a Sunday tea and evening dance at U Street Music Hall with former Tracks resident James “DJ Dub” Graham taking you on a 10 hour marathon journey. A club giving a DJ such an extended marathon set peak time is almost unprecedented, and as big champions of the long DJ set, we here at DC House Grooves are impressed! We’ve known DJ Dub for some time, being regular customers of his back in the days of DJ Hut, and you can rest assured that he knows what he is doing behind the decks, and you can be confident that he will guide you through the final hours of Pride in expert fashion. Expect tears of joy on the dance floor!
