DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House & Electronic Music Events in Washington DC November 9 to November 12

After a couple of weeks on the road, I’m happy to be back in Washington DC, with no plans for more travel… well, at least for a few more weeks. I’m still trying to process last weekend in Berlin, where I had the honor of playing the closing set at DJ Jus-Ed‘s monthly party  Zuflucht, on a lineup including Jus-EdJenifa Mayanja, the migthy Danilo Plessow aka  Motor City Drum Ensemble, and my good friend Jim Little aka DJ Jimmy Bubbles. Seriously, one of the best parties I’ve been to in a long while; amazing crowd, incredible vibe, and exquisite musical selections all round. I only hope my set was half as good as what came before! The whole night was recorded, and I’ll post up the sets as they are published. As of now, DJ Jimmy Bubbles‘ beautiful tear-jerker of an opening set is now available on the  edjrecords MixCloud pageFollow the page for notifications as the other mixes from the night get posted. My eternal thanks to brother Jus-Ed and his wife Jenifa Mayanja for their generous hospitality. A weekend I won’t be forgetting any time soon!

Back closer to home, I’ve got a new DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast for you. This edition is by our very own Katrina Mir, delivering a solid hour long mix of retro vocal grooves, a set originally delivered at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club‘s legendary annual Halloween party a couple of week’s ago. This one’s a right belter! Don’t sleep!

 

You can catch Katrina Mir Thursday night at Part 2 of Playlist‘s second anniversary celebrations at Eighteenth Street Lounge  alongside Solomon Sanchez and residents  Jubilee Ramirez, then on Friday she’ll be throwing down at the Solar Beatz stage at Catharsis on the Mall at 10.30pm, and on Saturday, you can catch her alongside me and Ramirez on another edition of the DC House Grooves Show on Underground Quality Radio.
