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.

 

Here’s this week’s Top Picks, Thursday through Sunday. See you next week, same time, same place, for all the best info on what’s good on the dance floor in Washington DC.

DC House Grooves Top Picks July 20 to July 23

Katrina Mir and I are heading out of town for a gig this weekend, so I was planning on making good on my  decision to take a break for a few weekends and not post anything. Indeed, as recently as last night, I made a start on compiling a Top Picks only post, but when I realized how many amazing events were happening this weekend, it was just too much, so I gave up and told myself it just wasn’t happening this week. Fast forward to today, and despite my decision not to do anything this weekend, it just kinda happened. So much goodness, I just couldn’t let it go undocumented! I mean, take a look at the list below. This is just my Top Picks of all the best events happening this weekend, and there’s more than enough to keep anyone busy! Highlights include Playlist with Jubilee Ramirez at  Eighteenth Street Lounge and Nightflight with Symmetrical on Thursday, then Sequence with PercKatie Rex, Damon Bradley and Steve Kirn on Friday. On Saturday, things get crazy!

Saturday afternoon, Detroit descends on DC, with The Detroit Connect at Flash featuring Norm Talley, Keith Worthy, Daniel Andres and Benoit, while over at The Glorious Health Club patio, The NeedleXchange crew host longtime DC House Grooves favorite Octo Octa for an evening of glorious underground sounds. Saturday also brings another edition of Jandro‘s Reflections at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club, featuring another super solid all-local lineup: Juana, EdoThroe and  Jandro himself. The last Reflections was a super fun time, so this comes highly recommended. For afters, all roads lead to Uncle Benny’s Afterhours Express, featuring very special guests from Detroit alongside Sticky Fingers Collective‘s Samantha Francesca and Benoit. Seek and you will find! If you’re planning on staying in on Saturday but still want to hear some great tunes, tune in to the DC House Grooves Show #05 on Underground Quality Radio .This week’s show will  feature myself, Andy Grant, and Katrina Mir, and will be broadcast live from an event in Indianapolis. Two hours of quality underground grooves for the discerning listener. This week’s show kicks off an hour later than usual at 11pm ET.

Sunday brings another edition of Sunday Love in the Green Room at Flash, featuring Guti live with support from Mina b2b Alex Eljaiek and Gilléad-Gaari, then all roads lead to Eighteenth Street Lounge for Sam Burns’ weekly residency and Sundays Rooftop Detroit All Starsedition featuring  Keith WorthyDaniel Andres and Benoit. Make sure you wish Benoita big happy birthday! While it sucks that Katrina and I will be missing most of the good stuff this weekend, we’re going to beast it back from Indianapolis and head straight to ESL to close out the weekend with the Sundays Rooftop crew! Whatever you do, wherever you go, have an amazing time, stay hydrated, and let the promoters and DJs know DC House Grooves sent you 🙂

Oh, and before I sign off, here’s episode #55 of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast, a 2 hour mix I recorded for my road trip this weekend. An all vinyl mix featuring mostly new cuts not available on digital from artists including Ada Kaleh, Traumer, Varhat, Janeret, Joey Anderson, Adam Strömstedt, Octo Octa, Lowris, Molly, Hostom, Dixia Sirong, The Black Pony Orchestra, Patrice Scott and Terrence Parker, which really showcases my style well, taking you on a two hour journey through a range of vibes. You may find some tracks challenging and inaccessible at first, but stick with it and you will be rewarded 🙂

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC June 22 to June 25

Good times at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club on Saturday at Reflections with JandroMark in the Dark, me and Mazi R! It’s the first time I’ve been back at . Jimmy’s since they upgraded the previously not all that sound system to an incredible Martin Audio sound system, expanding the dance floor in the process.  The new sound system is amazing! I really enjoyed putting it through it’s paces, and all the DJs on the line up really made it sing. The turnout to celebrate Mazi‘s birthday was amazing, making for a truly memorable Saturday night on the dance floor. Huge thanks to Jandro for putting it all together and inviting me to play. I can see myself being back at Jimmy Valentine’s in the very near future. As soon as this Saturday, in fact, as Kochi‘s new party Balance takes over, featuring another serious all local lineup: KochiRamirezMeegs and live vocals from the incredibly talented Candice Mills. As soon as we’re done with Saturday night’s DC House Grooves Show with Andy Grant, Ramirez and Katrina Mir on Underground Quality Radio, we’ll be hitting the road and heading to Jimmy’s! I highly recommend you do the same…after listening to the DC House Grooves Show, or course 🙂

So what else is going on this weekend? Quite a bit, as it happens!  As always, you’ll find full listings below of all the best underground house and electronic music events in and around DC, including all the DC House Grooves Top Picks. When you see the Top Pick badge, you know it’s a good one! You can catch me behind the decks with Taiga at Regrets Only Vol. 28 at Ten Tigers Parlour Thursday night. I’m excited and honored to be invited to play  Regrets Only, and I can’t wait to give the Ten Tigers sound system a good work out. As always, I’m bursting with amazing underground sounds to share with you, so join me and Taiga at Ten Tigers on Thursday night, and let’s make some bad decisions together on a school night! I’ll also have plenty of DC House Grooves Top Pick stickers with me, so make sure you ask me for some.

As mentioned previously, on Saturday night I’ll be joining Ramirez and Katrina Mir at 10pm for episode #3 of the DC House Grooves Show on Jus-Ed‘s Underground Quality Radio, then heading up to Balance with KochiRamirezMeegs and Candice Mills. Then on Sunday I’ll be heading up to Sunday Love at Flash for OG Tony Humphries, with support from an all-star local line up featuring Sam ‘The Man’ Burns, Chris Burns & Sleepy G. I’ve been a huge fan on Tony Humphries since I first heard him at his residency at Ministry of Sound in London back in the early 90s, and his Ministry of Sound Sessions Volume One mix had a huge influence on me. Just the thought of hearing him in the Green Room on the Flash rooftop on a sunny Sunday afternoon surrounded by friends gives me goosebumps. My tickets are bought, and I’m ready to go! While it is no cover before 4pm, I strongly recommend picking up advanced tickets to guarantee entry if you plan on arriving later. Sunday Love parties have been proving really popular, and I’m confident with this line up it will sell out. Why risk it? First release tickets are only $8, available from Ticketfly.

A couple of mixes for you before I get into this week’s listings. First up is the latest DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast featuring the welcome return of Symmetrical. You can catch Symmetrical this Saturday in Baltimore at Sentient Lighting’s Summer Jam 2017 with DJ Dan, Nigel Richards, Wayne Davis, Tzeech, Malphunktion, Hogan & Obscure & Symmetrical.

 

Another great mix is the inaugural edition of The Buddy System Podcast from the Good Buddies team featuring DC stalwart Ozker. A solid hour of quality grooves from one of DC’s finest. Make sure you follow Good Buddies on SoundCloud to make sure you catch all the future The Buddy System mixes.

 

Time for this week’s listings! Here are all the best underground house and electronic music events in and around DC Thursday through Sunday. Look out for the DC House Grooves Top Pick logo. Your sign of a good time! I’ll be back same time, same place next week for the three year anniversary edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up! See you on the dance floor.
