DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC April 27 to April 30

Wow! Almost lost for words after last Saturday’s Kowli & Midnight Project presents Eddie C and Joe Claussell in Baltimore! Definitely up there amongst the best parties I’ve been to in recent memory. Everyone was on form, and the vibes were thick. Things got off to a great start with Hot Coffee and Joe L going back to back, starting things off with just the right vibe and providing the perfect lead in to Eddie C‘s set, which really took things to the next level. By the time Joe Claussell took over for his epic six hour set, the place was really jumping, and boy did Joe take us places with a spiritual journey through house, techno, funk, soul, disco and beyond. As always, the crowd was on point, dancing as one until sunrise. House legend Ron Trent even showed up at one point, coming tantalizingly close to joining Joe behind the decks. Upstairs in the second room, Jus Nowhere  DJ Nav brought the garage heat, making it real hard to decide between rooms. An amazing night that I won’t soon forget. Kudos to Kowli Midnight Project for making it all happen! On Sunday I had the honor of warming up the floor for Detroit’s Ob Ignitt for Sundays Rooftop at Eighteenth Street Lounge. It was great to see so many familiar faces from Midnight Project closing out their Sunday with us at ESL, the music was on point all night. Here’s the recording of my set from Sundays Rooftop, the latest edition of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast: an all vinyl two hour journey, heavily inspired by my Midnight Project experience, featuring tracks from the likes of Crackazat, Lord of the Isles, Blake Baxter, Sub-Culture featuring Marcus, Lil Louis, DJ Wild, Mateo & Matos, Romanthony, Janeret, DJ Aakmael, Oshana, Glenn Underground, Ion Ludwig, Terrence Parker and more.

 

OK, looking ahead to next weekend, on May 6, Prescription and Sticky Fingers Collection present Be What You Feel with YouandewanFred Everything & Reggie Dokes, with support from residents Team Zapata and HOT COFFEE at a secret warehouse location. DC House Grooves has a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner. Just click through and fill out the form below for a chance to win. Please make sure you enter your real name and a valid email address. We’ll need your email to let you know you’ve won, and you’ll need to show your ID to claim your prize. We’ll pick the lucky winner at 5pm on the day of the event.

Heads up about one last event before I get into things for this weekend. Next Wednesday, April 26, the 1432R and Future Times crews join forces to bring international festival super stars Juju & Jordash to Ten Tigers Parlor, with support from Dreamcast. Anyone who has heard me play any time recently will be familiar with Juju & Jordash, their track Waldorf Salad being a fixture in my record bag for the past year or so. I know I keep saying it, but you really don’t want to miss this one. Cover is just $5, which really is a bargain! Anywho, which not so long ago featured PLO Man in the Flash bar, works the magic once again, bringing Juju & Jordash to DC for a midweek session that you won’t forget! I know I’ll be there, Thursday morning regrets be damned!

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC April 13 to April 16

I didn’t make it out last weekend other than a fun cruise down the Potomac for the Sam Burns Boat Party, but I’ve gotta say I had some serious feelings of missing out when I saw the pictures from Sunday Love with Bedouin at Flash. Looked like an amazing vibe! Congratulations to Flash for curating another quality party series. Looking forward to what you’ve got in store for us this summer! The big news this weekend is Friday’s annual Code 13 party celebrating Denis Bejan‘s birthday, and this year’s event looks like the best one yet! French minimal masters Zendid in a secret warehouse location, with support from an all star local lineup featuring Navbox, DJ Lisa Frank, Chris Nitti and Taiga with Prescription‘s Martin Audio sound system, stunning visuals and art installations, dancing until sunrise and perhaps beyond, this one promises to be really special. Advanced tickets are strongly recommended; use the link below to get the exclusive DC House Grooves discount. Still some $15 first release tickets available if you move fast!

Give me a 10% discount off tickets to CODE 13!

Just click the link below for the discount:

I’ve been slacking off a bit lately re: bring you mixes to listen to, but I’m going to make up for that this week with something really special: the latest Hooked Podcast from Sarah Myers, featuring Sarah MyersHalloran and DC House Grooves‘ very own Katrina Mir, recorded live in the Green Room at Flash on April 1. I was there that night, and let me tell you something: the Flash rooftop was seriously jumping! Fortunately it was all recorded, and you can catch the best of it right here. Enjoy! Follow Sarah Myers on SoundCloud for more quality podcasts.

 

Right, let’s get down to business re: this weekend. Looks like another crazy weekend on the dance floor, with such an incredible line up of events, you’re going to need to make someDC House Grooves Top Picktough decisions!
