DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC February 16 to February 19

Welcome back to your weekly guide to what’s good on the dance floors of Washington DC. I’m still buzzing from last Friday at Flash. It was one of those nights that I thought was going to be a complete bust. Katrina Mir and I kicked things off in the bar at 9pm, but it was slow going all night, with the two of us playing to a more or less empty dance floor, and by around 1.30 am I was ready to give up. Nothing worse that throwing down top quality tunes when there’s no one dancing! But then, as 2am approached, something magical happened. The dance floor in the Flash Bar suddenly filled up with an enthusiastic crowd of dancers, and the party really got started! Katrina and I went back to back for the last couple of hours, and it was probably the most fun I’ve had spinning in the bar at Flash in the three years I’ve been playing there. In those last two hours, we covered everything from minimal to garage to classic house to disco to breaks to hardcore and back again, with a spot of Fleetwood Mac and Phil Collins thrown in to close out the proceedings. Pretty much a typical Body Werk night! This week’s mix is the recording of those last couple of hours. The tequila shots were flowing freely, so as you can imagine the mixing in places is a little avant garde, as it were, but this is two hours of musical fun time that is totally worth your time 🙂

 

OK.. big weekend ahead, with a couple of serious undergrounders that you need to put on your to do list. Friday night brings another edition of Uncle Benny’s After Hours Express, which not only features a serious headliner, Brawther, ably supported by  Kowli RecordsFeroun and  Uncle Benny himself, it also has perhaps the best flyer for any event ever. I mean, how can you not go to this party?

Uncle Benny’s After Hours Express with Brawther, Feroun & Benoit at Secret Location

Tickets for Uncle Benny’s After Hours Express with Brawther, Feroun & Benoit are already on their second release, so if you don’t already have one, act fast! DC House Grooves readers get a 20% discount using the link below… click through for the discount!

20% off advanced tickets to Uncle Bennys with Brawther

Another big one this weekend is the next installment of Daytime Discothèque with Byron The Aquarius, Boss Ross, Baronhawk on Sunday afternoon. Always fun to be had at the Daytime Disco, and with this line up, I just know it’s going to be special. Byron The Aquarius has been killing it with the releases lately, and is much in demand worldwide, so the chance to catch him in such an intimate venue with that supporting line up right here in DC is one to be jumped at. Sadly, no discount link for this one, but you can pick up advanced tickets using the link below. No door sales for this one, so if you don’t buy advanced tickets, don’t waste your time showing up.

Other things worth checking out this weekend are Headroom at Flash on Thursday, if you’re into music production or want to hear what local producers have been working on, that is, Apert:re with Bella Sarris, Ada Kaleh & Jubilee at Flash on Friday (Pro tip: head over and join the Flash Life group on Facebook for a sweet RSVP offer), Baltimore legend DJ Technics with Beautiful Swimmers at Ten Tigers Parlour on Saturday, and Sunday night’s extravaganza at Eighteenth Street Lounge featuring Sam “The Man” Burns, Carlos Mena, Stylus Chris, Farid, Jeyone, Seanyranks & DJ Uzzle, plus Sunday’s Workshop featuring one of my favorite producers Stefan Goldmann, Juana & Benoit. No work on Monday, so might as well make it count!

Here’s my full list of picks Thursday through Sunday below, followed by all the other awesome events on my radar for this weekend. Have fun, and I’ll see you on the dance floor!

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC February 9 to February 12

You know, when I first started publishing the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up over two and a half years ago, one of my main motivations was frustration that DC’s talented local DJs were getting overlooked in favor of out of town talent that more often than not didn’t live up to the hype. Events featuring all local line ups were few and far between, and big names from out of town were seemingly the only way to get people through the door. l had a crazy plan that maybe I could steer people towards events featuring our pool of strong local talent, and maybe we could start to see more all local line ups. I’ve no idea if DC House Grooves has had any impact, but we’re increasingly seeing amazing, well attended events featuring only local DJs right here in DC. So much so that this week’s post is entirely dedicated to events with all local line ups. Every event in this week’s picks exclusively features talent from the local  area (well, with the exception of Saturday night’s Apert:re with Sammy Dee, Navbox & Solomon Sanchez at Flash, with Taiga & Throe in the Green Room and Acid People featuring Doktor D, Juana & Ron Jackson in the Flash Bar, where, with a ratio of locals to out-of-town talent of 1:7, I’ll make an exception).  The high point this weekend without a doubt is Friday night at Flash, which sees locals taking over all three floors, with hometown heroes Beautiful Swimmers headlining the main room with support from Chris Burns and Sleepy G, while in the Green Room Sarah Myers and Friends takes over, with Mazi R and Jus Nowhere joining Sarah to bring the vibes open to close. Down in the bar, Katrina Mir and Andy Grant (talking about myself in the third person again!) hold things down for another edition of Body Werk. A serious all local line up across all three levels at Flash… not to be missed! Advanced tickets are only $8 on Ticketfly… a complete bargain for this line up.

Speaking of talented locals, DC label 1432R Recordings has a new compilation out on Bandcamp. Extended Family Compilation 001 features original tracks from the 1432R crew and their circle of collaborators, including contributions from Beautiful Swimmers’ Max D and local favorites Jackson Ryland and Djoser. You can name your price for the album, and best of all, 100% of the proceeds will benefit the ACLU, so not only do you get a compilation of quality music from a local label, you get to support a cause that more than ever needs our support. Head over to 1432R’s Bandcamp page now and buy Extended Family Compilation 01. There’s 13 tracks, so I suggest a donation of at least $13. Don’t be a cheap skate!

Sticking with this week’s theme of talented locals, here’s the latest edition of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast series. Episode #47 features DC regular Jandro‘s third entry into his Cabin Fever series… quality house grooves  through and through.

 

On to this week’s picks. As mentioned above, this week’s picks exclusively features events with all, or predominantly all, local line ups. Thursday’s highlights include One Love Massive Happy Hour with recent Meet the Locals Podcast contributor Symmetrical, Mont.age 2 Year Anniversary Happy Hour with Sam “The Man” Burns, Dromme & Tony Smooth, the latest edition of Regrets Only featuring Chris Nitti and Throe at Ten Tigers Parlour and Playlist with Jubilee and Ramirez at ESL. Friday night, the aforementioned all locals extravaganza at Flash featuring Beautiful SwimmersChris BurnsSleepy GSarah MyersMazi RJus NowhereKatrina Mir and yours truly, Andy Grant gets my vote, but if you’re looking for something more intimate with quality music and people, check out Petworth Funk with Trev-ski and special guests Joe L. and Fulano at The Looking Glass Lounge in Petworth, or Natural Resources with Philco, Samantha Francesca and Pacific Fur Company at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar. Some serious options on Saturday night! At Flash, Berlin’s Sammy Dee headlines (yeah, I know, not local. I make the rules, I get to break the rules!) with support from local dream team Navbox and Solomon Sanchez. In the Green Room, Taiga Throe bring the heat all night long, while in the bar, Doktor DJuana and Ron Jackson celebrate all things 303 at another edition of Acid People. Down the street at U Street Music HallDeep Sugar brings the magic of The Paradox to DC, with Baltimore’s very own superstar Ultra Naté and Lisa Moody throwing down the soulful house grooves with support from Katie Elder. Mark my words: Deep Sugar U Street Music Hall = guaranteed magical vibes all night long. Over at  Jimmy Valentine‘s, Winter Warmers  promises quality music all night long in everyone’s favorite dive bar, with some of the longest serving DJs in DC, DJ Double 07Tim Jackson  and Anish. A great choice if you want to stay away from the U Street madness! On Sunday, as always, ESL is your one stop shop, with another quality, all local line up featuring Sam “The Man” Burns, Smudge, Martín Miguel, Mr. Bonkerz & Heights. The perfect place to close out your weekend!

OK… here’s my full list of all-local picks for the weekend, after which you’ll find all the rest of the events for this weekend, Thursday through Sunday.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC February 2 to February 5

Mad fun times last Friday at Kowli & Midnight Project present DJ Qu in Baltimore! The music was absolutely on point, with Ben Jenkins setting the tone perfectly, followed by a blistering set from the man himself, DJ Qu, and Feroun and Benoit Benoit expertly closing out the night. The Darkroom is an impressive space and the crowd was just right, making for an amazing night on the dance floor. My only complaint was that the Darkroom sign behind the decks was so bright that it wasn’t exactly dark, and despite turning off some of the letters later on, it was still far too bright! I recommend a red light, a smoke machine and a strobe. Nothing more, nothing less. Sadly, since I was in Baltimore, I missed most of DJ MeegsHeather Femia and Katrina Mir at Cider House Mules in the Flash Bar, but I heard very good things from those who were there! Still, I was back in the bar on Saturday night for Spreadlove Project with DJ Nav and Jett Chandon, and had a blast banging out the garage! Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough left in the tank for Prescription with  Huerta; I’m hoping Prescription will be back soon so I can get my fix!

Before getting into this weekend’s festivities, I want to give you a heads up about the next edition of Daytime Discothèque on February 19, featuring a personal favorite of mine who’s been killing it with the releases lately, Byron the Aquarius, supported by a smoking hot local line up including Boss RossBaronhawk Poitier and HOT COFFEE. I strongly encourage you to think ahead and grab yourself some $10 early bird tickets for this one. Final release will be $25, so there’s a definite first mover advantage! Always fun times in the Daytime Discothèque… don’t sleep!

Nothing new from the Meet the Locals Podcast this week, so here’s my recent mix for the Damm Str8 Podcast, three hours of quality grooves served fresh from the vinyl to get you in the mood for the weekend.

 

Well it’s another great looking weekend ahead! It may be cold outside, but things will be heating up on the dance floor. Thursday night, I recommend heading straight from work to Mont.age 2 year anniversary happy hour featuring Sam Burns, Tony Smooth, Dromme and Tim Humphrey at Bourbon Adams Morgan (UPDATE: this event has been canceled) to start your night off right with some sweet, sweet house music from 6pm to 11pm, and after that take your pick between Playlist with JubileeRamirez and Sarah Myers at Eighteenth Street Lounge, or Regrets Only Volume 8 with Chris Nitti and special guest Matt Nordstrom. Both great options for making poor choices on a Thursday night! Another great option for Thursday is Nightflight with Katrina Mir & DJ Nav at Cafe Saint Ex. Always good times in the basement there, and with Katrina Mir Nav at the controls, you can’t go wrong!

Three great options to choose from on Friday night: at FlashMatthew Dear headlines the club level with support from Chris Kennedy, while DJ Freez and Sleepy G hold things down in the Green Room. In the bar, it’s another edition of Audio Zen featuring three of our areas most experienced selectors throwing down the wax: Trev-ski, Graham Hatke and Alex Gardel. Over at Eighteenth Street Lounge, it’s ESL Friday with Jamie 3:26, Benoit Benoit and Markinthedark celebrating Casey‘s birthday in the Gold Room, with across the other rooms, John Jazz, Qdup & Conscious Contact bring the heat. Over at Zeba Bar, Friday brings another edition of Souled Out! featuring the multi-talented Vanniety Kills with support behind the decks from regulars Meegs and Raha Wala, and Reemz & Andrew Frankhouse on keys and sax respectively.

A bunch of great stuff on Saturday, too! At FlashHoney Soundsystem take charge of the main room with support from ThroeJ-Tek & Bella take over the Green Room open to close, and Edo and Charles Martin throw down quality sounds in the bar. Over at the Angelika Pop-Up in Union Market, there’s another edition of the Fathom: Experiment, where art and music combine to deliver a night out like no other. This time around, DC regulars Philip Goyette and Jandro are at the controls, so you know you’re in good hands. At Eighteenth Street Lounge, the legendary Victor Simonelli plays the Gold Room open to close, with resident Mr Bonkerz! on the patio and Stylus Chris in the Main Room. Then, over at Jimmy Valentine’s, the Partial Magic crew are back with another intimate session for the heads in everyone’s favorite dive bar. This time around, the line up features Dialectic Sines, DC’s rising star Juana and resident Ben Jenkins. Of course, true deep house heads will be hitting the road and heading to Baltimore on Saturday for Deep Sugar with Ultra Naté, Lisa Moody, Wayne Davis, The Elders & Mookie Wizzo at The Paradox. Sadly last week’s edition got closed down, but the Deep Sugar crew don’t waste any time, and they’re back with a make up date this Saturday! Make the most of The Paradox while it lasts… it’s on borrowed time, and that wrecking ball will be swinging before you know it!

I’ve only got one event on my radar for Sunday, and fortunately it’s my regular top pick! ESL Sunday features Sam “The Man” Burns‘ weekly residency, along with Jeyone in the main room, while out on the patio, it’s another edition of Good Buddies featuring Hugo ZapataThroeJandro and Philco. Another solid Sunday line up at Eighteenth Street Lounge to close out the week.

Here’s all this week’s picks with flyers and event links. After the picks, you’ll find all the other events on my radar, Thursday through Sunday. Wishing you all a mad weekend on the dance floor! I’m staying out of it this weekend, but I’ll be back the following weekend side by side with Katrina Mir for the next edition of Body Werk in the Flash Bar on February 10.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC January 26 to January 29

Good times last weekend! My official plan for the weekend was to stay out of everything and spend some quality time with my kids, but I made it out on Thursday night to throw down with my brothers Jubilee & Ramirez at their weekly residency Playlist at Eighteenth Street Lounge, and what an amazing time that was! Enthusiastic crowd from the get go, serious sound system and proper vibes all round. I’ve gotten myself in trouble in the past for my comments about the sound system at ESL, but I take it all back! It was sounding sweet as last Thursday night… serious upgrades all round.  I also made it out for a couple of hours to catch JubileeRamirez and Chris Nitti at Resident Nights at Flash on Saturday night, and as expected, the vibe was on point. Kochi and John Hawley were seriously throwing down in the bar, and it was a real treat to hear Martín Miguel and Chris Kennedy serving up the wax in the Green Room. Sadly, I couldn’t stay out long, so didn’t make it out to the main event Sequence.121 with Discwoman, much to my disappointment. Per the  Resident Advisor review, I missed out on a very special event! Kudos to the Void Archive, Select DC & TechnoFist crews for throwing such a successful event and to the local talent Jett ChandonClaire and Juana for representing DC so well. Nice to know positive word of mouth about DC is being passed around in Brooklyn 🙂 That’s how we put our vibrant underground scene on the map!

Enough about last weekend… there’s another action packed weekend ahead! The big news this weekend is the return of Prescription to 300 Morse Street with a solid line up including Berlin’s Huerta with local support from Itzjack and Juan and Hugo Zapata. Once again, they’ll be rolling out the Prescription sound system, and proper vibes are guaranteed. Once again, DC House Grooves has secured an exclusive 15% discount off advanced tickets for our readers. Just click the link below for discounted tickets!

It’s been a while, but I’ve finally got a new episode of the Meet the Locals podcast! Episode #46 is a two hour mix of sublime house music from One Love Massive Collective member Symmetrical. This is just the first two hours of an epic 8 hour vinyl set recorded by Symmetrical to celebrate his birthday. If you like what you hear, check out the full mix at the Metatron Art and Music Studio page.

 

Another mix worth checking out this week is a three hour mix I recorded for the DAMM Str8 podcast featuring tracks from the likes of Kettenkarussell, DJ Nature, Lerosa, Juju & Jordash, Flørist presnts V. Rosso, Tevo Howard, Franck Roger, Edward, Leafar Legov, Varhat, DJ Garth, Jun Kamoda and many more. You can check out the mix, plus a short interview with yours truly, over on DAMM Str8.

OK.. slight change of format for my picks this weekend. I’ve heard that people have found the format confusing, so this week I’m listing my picks Thursday through Sunday along with flyers and event links, then after my picks I’ll be listing out all the rest of the weekend’s events. Hopefully this will be a bit easier to follow. Now, if something isn’t in my picks, it doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your time. Everything in this post is worth checking out! Hopefully this approach is easier to understand. If you have any feedback or suggestions on how I can improve it, please let me know!

I’m planning on taking it easy on Thursday, but if I were to head out, I think it would be a toss up between Regrets Only Vol 7 with DJ Lisa Frank and Juana at Ten Tigers Parlour and Playlist with Jubilee and Ramirez at Eighteenth Street Lounge. Friday night, I’ll be kicking off the evening in the Flash Bar for Cider House Mules with DJ MeegsHeather Femia and DC House Grooves very own Katrina Mir, after which we’ll be hitting the road for Baltimore for Kowli & Midnight Project present DJ QU with Feroun, Ben Jenkins and Benoit Benoit. This is the place to be on Friday… if you haven’t got your tickets yet, grab one now! Saturday night, I’m planning on getting warmed up celebrating  David Fogel‘s birthday at Bump ‘n Paradise with Dave and Johnson at Bump’n’Grind, then heading down to Flash to throw down some UK Garage in the bar for Spreadlove Project with DJ Nav and Jett Chandon. Upstairs at Flash on Saturday you’ll find MartynDoubtingthomas (Live) with support from Throe, while local stalwarts Jus Nowhere and markinthedark take over the green room open to close. Another serious line up across all three levels! Once we wrap up at Flash, we’ll be heading over to Prescription  to dance until dawn. Of course, if I could be in two places at once, I’d be in Baltimore again for Deep Sugar at The Paradox with Ultra NatéLisa Moody, Wayne Davis and special guest DJ Spen. House music bliss right there! Sunday, look no further than Sunday’s Rooftop with Ari Goldman (Beautiful Swimmers) and Benoit on the patio at Eighteenth Street Lounge, and if that’s not enough for you, it’s Sam Burns‘ weekly residency in the Gold Room. Always the best way to round out the weekend!

Right…here’s my full list of picks for the weekend with flyers and event links. All great options for some proper dance floor therapy. Just beneath my picks, you’ll find the the rest of the listings of quality underground house and electronic music events in and around DC from Thursday to Sunday.
