DC House Grooves Top Picks August 10 to August 13

Fun times last Friday at Body Werk the Flash Bar. Always a good time throwing down with Benoit, and Katrina Mir closed out the night with a killer set. I didn’t think she was going to stop! Huge thanks to everyone on the team at Flash for allowing us to do our thing and for making everything run smoothly on the night. Friday proved to be great preparation for the DC House Grooves Show #06 on Jus-Ed‘s Underground Quality Radio on Saturday with me, Ramirez and Katrina Mir. When we started doing the show, we had a very clear vision of what we wanted to do, but it has taken us a few shows to really get into the right rhythm. On Saturday’s show, it all came together, delivering exactly the right vibe. Check out the multi-camera video recording below for the full show; three hours of quality underground grooves, going in deep! The DC House Grooves Show will be back on Underground Quality Radio on Saturday August 19 at 10pm ET, featuring Ramirez and special guest Jubilee. Not to be missed!

Before getting into my Top Picks for this weekend, news of some upcoming events to put in your calendar. Possibly my favorite party this year was Joe Claussell‘s six hour set in a warehouse in Baltimore, brought to us by Midnight Project and Kowli Records. Well, the team behind Midnight Project and the Loop crew are bringing Joe Claussell  to DC for a four hour set on a boat cruising down the Potomac, bringing the vibes on a state of the art Martin Audisound system. The date for your calendar is Sunday September 24, and you better make sure you grab one of the 130 tickets well in advance, as this event will sell out. First release tickets are already gone, but you can still pick up $35 second release tickets if you move fast:

This week also saw a huge announcement from the ROAM crew, in the form of the video below. Serious heat coming to the ROAM warehouse this fall, with huge names such as Barnt, Call Super Beautiful SwimmersPalms Trax Honey Soundsystem and Robert Hood, along with the ROAM residents and many of your favorite DC locals. Check out the video below, and make sure you check the new ROAM website for all the latest news of their fall schedule and beyond. If those Gino Soccio beats don’t get your juices flowing, I don’t know what will!

All right, all right. No time left to go into detail for this weekend’s events, but here’s my full list of DC House Grooves Top Picks Thursday through Sunday. Make sure you save some energy for next weekend, though… I can tell you right now, with the Chairman of The Rotters Golf Club himself, Andrew Weatherall, and Rhadoo in town, it’s going to be nuts. See you on the dance floor!
