DC House Grooves Top Picks August 3 to August 6

Not much time this week, so let’s dive in! Thursday night, I strongly urge you start your evening at Preview at Flash, where the uber talented Symmetrical will not only be DJing, but exhibiting his works of art. We have a Symmetrical original hanging in our basement, and I absolutely love his distinctive and unique works. This is a great opportunity for you to get familiar with a local talent with such raw energy, enthusiasm and positivity that I have no doubt he will go far. Trust me… you’ll be able to say you knew him before he was famous! Later on at Flash, the amazing DJ Tennis graces the decks in the main room with support from the equally amazing Solomon Sanchez, so it may just be worth you sticking around.

Friday night, Katrina Mir and I will be joined behind the decks in the Flash Bar by Deep Secrets’ Benoit. I’m still buzzing from Katrina Mir‘s amazing set at Daytime Discothèque opening for Detroit’s Reggie Dokes last Sunday, and it’s been a minute since I’ve gone a few rounds on the ones and twos with Uncle Benny, so this one’s going to be emotional! Join us ifrom 9pm for serious grooves, laughter, and perhaps even a few tears. Upstairs in Flash‘s main room, British techno duo Dense & Pika bring the heat with local support from Schubert, while in the Green Room, there’s a MoDERN CLASS reunion, with Trev-ski and Fulano reuniting with DJ Provoke for another night of disco, soul, funk and boogie.

Another strong recommendation for Friday night is The Uptown House Experience with house legend Doug Smith of production duo 95 North, with support from DJ Nav B2B Joe L at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club. Proper house music for the heads.

Another great option for Saturday afternoon grooves is The Cookout with Sticky Fingers Collective & Good Buddies at The Embassy Row Hotel. Serious vibes in the sunshine as HOT COFFEE, Jandro Rod, Jacq Jill, PHILCO & Samantha Francesca throw down by the rooftop pool.

For your Saturday night pre-game, tune in to episode #06 of the DC House Grooves Show on Jus-Ed‘s Underground Quality Radio with me, Katrina Mir and Ramirez from 10pm, then take your pick from my Top Picks below for your Saturday night dance floor moves. Jay TripwireFranck Roger and Team Zapata at Flash looks seriously tasty, as does LENG Presents Batu (UK) with Max D, Jett Chandon, Djoser & Panch at Ten Tigers Parlour. Don’t sleep on Full Service Party presents MikeQ and Vjuan Allure with Uptown Nikko, Jack Inslee, Wreck Tech & Ayes Cold at U Street Music Hall, either. Tough decisions all round on Saturday night! A sure sign of a really healthy underground scene here in DC.

Sunday afternoon, take your pick between Sunday Love with Brian Cid Life on Planets at Flash or Chasing Sundays Secret Disco Edition with Misha & Anton at Public Bar, but whatever you do, don’t miss Sundays Rooftop with Darand LandFeroun and Benoit. You may think you know deep house, but Darand Land is the man to take you to school and really show you what deep house can be. Serious deep grooves for those who know.

That’s it for this week. Just time to bring you another edition of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast featuring quality soulful grooves from Richmond’s Omar Faison. Catch Omar at his residency at Flow, 2nd Saturdays at Emilio’s in Richmond.
