DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC May 4 to May 7

OK, people. Big weekend coming up! This Friday and Saturday I’ll be out celebrating my birthday, and I couldn’t have picked a better weekend for it. On Friday night, I’ll be opening up the main room at Flash for Navbox and Sonja Moonear, and I heartily encourage you to join us. Sonja’s set at Resolute in Detroit last year really inspired me, and I can’t wait to hear what she’s got in store for us this Friday. I’m looking forward to setting the vibe just right; all I need is a few early dance floor soldiers to help me get things going. To make it easy for you, Flash are offering free entry before midnight with RSVP. Just head over to the Flash Life group and click the link, fill out the form, then arrive at Flash before midnight on Friday. I recommend getting there even earlier to catch me getting weird warming up the Funktion Ones. Friday night at Flash also features local favorites Jackson Ryland and Jus Nowhere housing it up open to close in the Green Room, while down in the bar, Select DC features Soren RoiDylan Cameron and Video Blue. Serious quality across all three floors. Make sure you RSVP over at Flash Life for free entry before midnight!

I plan on winding down my birthday celebrations on Sunday back at Flash for Sunday Love: with Alex & Digby, Navbox, Mazi R & Throe. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon than on the rooftop. Looking at the weather, we might need a light jacket, but I get the feeling there’s going to be some serious heat on that rooftop!

Before I get into this week’s full listings, news about a few upcoming parties right here in the District. Next weekend, on Friday May 12, Flash debut’s their new warehouse experience Flash Off, featuring MagdaMike Servito and Onur Özer. That much you already know. Well this week Flash announced the local support, and it’s a smoking hot list of local techno talent featuring Flash‘s very own NavboxJubileeOliver CaineRush Plus and Juana. Throw in an immersive four point Funktion One sound system and visuals by Oktaform, and you’ve got all the ingredients for an amazing sensory experience! First release advanced tickets are still available for $25. Move fast before the price goes up! Sadly, I won’t be able to make it next weekend, but would love it if someone could review it for DC House Grooves. If you’re interested, please let me know!

Also coming up in a couple of weeks on Sunday May 21 is the next edition of everyone’s favorite Sunday afternoon jam Daytime Discotèque featuring none other than the godfather of wonky house himself, Fritz Wentink, with Jus NowhereZamkov and Hot Coffee on supporting duties. Early birds for this one sold out in under four hours, and I’ve got a feeling this one will sell out in record time, so if you know what’s good for you, grab your $15 advanced tickets before the price goes up.

One last thing before we get back into the rest of the good stuff for this weekend: it’s Meet the Locals Podcast time! Episode 49 of the Meet the Locals Podcast is a quality mix of deep groovers from a regular on the underground party circuit here in Washington DC, Sticky Fingers Collective’s Samantha Francesca. In her own words: “This mix features some of my favorite tracks, new and old, from artists including Alex Seidel, DJ Rasoul, Folamour, Nacey, Archie Hamilton, Liam Geddes, Jus Nowhere and more”. You can catch Samantha Francesca next at Sunday Love with Omar S at Flash on May 14, then at Good Buddies featuring the Sticky Fingers Collective at Halcyon NYC on May 30.

 

So, what about this weekend? Worthy of a big mention on Saturday is The Funk Parade 2017, which takes over the U Street corridor Saturday afternoon with live bands and DJs across a whole bunch of stages. I’m the first to admit that I don’t know enough about the Funk Parade or the many acts performing to do it justice, so I encourage you to take a look at the full line up below, and head over to the Funk Parade Facebook Page to learn more.

As I mentioned last week, this weekend brings the first Soundwaves Boat Party of the season, with Jubilee & Taiga at the controls as you cruise down the Potomac with a likeminded crowd of heads. If you’re thinking of going, grab your tickets ASAP. Some $25 second release tickets still remain, but these will be gone soon, and it will be a sell out long before the boat sets sail on Sunday afternoon.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC November 5 to November 8

Right.. not much time this week, so need to bash out this edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up as quickly as possible. Gonna skip the niceties and get straight down to business. Got a couple of mixes for you to listen to this week as you plan out your weekend activities. First up, here’s episode #19 of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast by DC local Ragab. Some really nice Eastern influenced deep groovers here:

 

Look out for Ragab at clubs and parties around town, and make sure you follow DC House Grooves on Soundcloud to get notified of new episodes of the Meet the Locals podcast. Next up is the latest edition of the Extended Family podcast from our friends at 1432 R, this time around featuring one of DC’s top tier local DJs, ROAM‘s Chris Nitti. A wonderful journey through deep, percussive, melodic and moody vibes, perfect for the dance floor around 5am with the smoke machine on and strobe running: head down, bass face on.

 

You can catch Chris Nitti doing his thing on November 21 at the next installment of ROAM. It’s the tenth ROAM party, and promises to be the best one yet, with DJs Brian Billion and Chris Burns joining residents Chris NittiDJ Lisa Frank and Sami Y at a secret warehouse location with bangin’ sound provided by Jackson Pro Audio and stunning visuals provided by [capsaicin]. Don’t sleep on buying your advanced tickets. Early birds are already gone and ROAM parties have been known to sell out!

Time for this week’s picks. Some great events happening this weekend, featuring amazingly talented DJs, and its encouraging to see so many events featuring all local line ups. For Thursday happy hour, get yourself over to Dunya for some Deep House and Debauchery at Happy Hour House Vibez with long serving DC local DJ Double 07, who is amongst my favorite local DJs. His edition of DC House Grooves Live from the Rave Basement is one of my favorites, and I’m sure he’s got something special in store for Thursday night.  After happy hour, head over to Velvet Lounge for Philip Goyette‘s monthly Transmission 4.4 party, featuring recent Meet the Locals Podcast contributor AVERVGE. After that, head over to the Eighteenth Street Lounge for Playlist with local underground house heavyweights Jubilee and Solomon Sanchez, my top pick for Thursday night. For those of you more of a techno persuasion, head to Flash on Thursday for Paco Osuna with support from Jandro.

Two top picks for Friday night: at FlashTiefschwarz headling with support from Raffi, and downstairs in the bar its Audio Zen featuring Alex GardelGraham Hatke and Trevor Keen, three serious heads who will take you on a musical journey from open to close. Its not called Audio Zen for nothing! Over at Eighteenth Street Lounge, my other top pick is Daniel Andres with support from R&B. Detroit meets DC in the Gold Room for some fine underground musical selections. For the best in soulful and classic house music on Friday, check out Strictly 4 the Dance Floor with Darrel Lewis and Ernest Fountain at Zeba Bar, and for an all vinyl extravaganza featuring an all female line up, check out Real Women Spin Wax at Songbyrd featuring DJ Clark, Juana and Luna Zul. I love the concept, and hope this takes off. Appreciation and support for the art of spinning wax is always something I can get behind.

My top pick for Saturday is Sonja Moonear at Flash with support from local dream team Navbox and DJ Lisa Frank, while down in the Flash Bar its another edition of Body Werk with me, Andy Grant and Feroun & Novac from Kowli Records. Two floors of solid underground sounds open to close. Another great choice for Saturday is the inaugural event of The Spreadlove Project at DC9 Nightclub featuring Baltimore’s Joe Nice playing an exclusive 2-step set with support from Jett Chandon and DJ Nav. Having experienced it at our recent Body Werk UK Garage Edition a couple of months back, I can tell you that 2-step sounds amazing on DC9‘s Void Acoustics sound system, so this is well worth a look. For eclectic vibes served fresh from the vinyl, check out Heavy Rotation w/ JahsonicDJ StylusDJ Provoke and Martín Miguel at The Black Cat. All vinyl nights will always receive the support of DC House Grooves, not because I think they are better, not because I’m a vinyl snob, but because I don’t even need to hear a DJ who spins vinyl to know that they are doing what they do for the right reasons. There’s a couple of great options if you’re up in Baltimore on Saturday night. At The Paradox there’s The Truth featuring Blond:ish and Life on Planets with support from Sam “The Man” BurnsDJ Who and Shawn Q, while in The Chamber, the Vague Output crew take over with an amazing line up including Alex Gardel, Ben JenkinsGraham HatkeAphreaq and C10. Meanwhile, over at The DepotThe UK Garage Social crew bring you the finest house, garage and 2-step with DJs Tommy DavisDanny Elder and Brother Pinch.

Which brings us to Sunday, where my top pick is a one stop shop for all your house, tech house and disco needs. Eighteenth Street Lounge has everything you need this Sunday: out on the patio, it’s Groovetop with local globe trotting superstar Saeed Younan supported by Nissa Rivard and Jandro, while inside disco and house legend John “Jellybean” Benitez celebrates his birthday with support from Sam “The Man” Burns. And if that’s not enough, in the main room Mr Bonkerz will be rinsing the disco classics.

Here’s my full list of picks for this weekend. I don’t have time to write everything up, so there’s a few more in the list that are worth checking out, and make sure you check my listings of everything else further down the page. I’ll be back next week with another edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up, so you know where to come when it’s time to plan your weekend! Over and out.

DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up: The Best Underground House and Electronic Music Events in Washington DC September 10 to September 13

Welcome back to another awesome edition of the DC House Grooves Weekend Round Up. Andy here, resuming writing duties after enjoying my first Wednesday night away from a keyboard for well over a year. Huge thanks to Katrina for taking care of business last week and giving me a much needed break. Also much needed was a weekend away from clubs, dance floors and pounding beats. After a couple of not-so-awesome gigs the previous weekend, I was feeling undervalued, under paid, jaded about the scene and done with music in general; a weekend off was just what the doctor ordered. After listening to a few records today, though, I’m reminded why I do this, and I can’t wait to spin some tunes and throw some shapes on the dance floor this coming weekend!

Before we get into the picks, I first want to welcome back all our brothers and sisters who headed out to the dust. You were all missed, and despite my cynical comments on Facebook suggesting otherwise, I for one am insanely jealous. I hope you all had amazing, life changing experiences, and I sincerely hope circumstances align so I can join you all on the Playa one day. Can’t wait to hear all your stories!

OK, so I’ve got a few goodies to share with you. First up, here’s the official video of Body Werk Summer Sessions with Amir Alexander back in June. It’s been awhile in the making, but it was worth the wait. If you were there, this will serve as a great reminder of an amazing party with a truly talented DJ. If you missed it, this will serve as a great reminder that you shouldn’t miss the next one! Such an amazing night on the rooftop, and this video captures it perfectly.

Body Werk Summer Sessions with Amir Alexander from DC House Grooves on Vimeo.

Huge thanks to uber talented Lindsay Laughridge for her amazing work on this video. We gave her no creative input at all, and her work exceeded our expectations and then some. Look about for more from Lindsay…she’s got mad skills, both behind the decks and behind the camera.

Next up is the latest edition of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast. I can’t believe we’re up to number 16 already, but that’s where we are! Episode 16 is a groovy little house music journey from zacheser. Check it out here, and click through to SoundCloud for more info from zacheser, including his insightful commentary about the mix. If you like what you hear, you can catch zacheser opening for Jacques Renault and Zimmer on Friday at U Street Music Hall.

 

One last thing before I dive into the picks. The Extended Family Podcast has been putting out some wonderful, eclectic mixes from local talent recently, and their latest is a doozy from local DJ and producer Chris Burns. If you’re looking for nice comfortable 4/4s and tracks that sound like they’ve been thrown together in an afternoon then uploaded to Beatport direct from Ableton Live, then this one probably isn’t for you. However, if you’re open to a challenging, eclectic journey through genres and sounds from a truly talented local artist, then this one’s for you. Headphones on, lights off, eyes closed is the recommendation for this one, perhaps following your favorite herbal remedy.

 

Right, let’s get down to business. Lots to cover this weekend, so I’ll be racing through this. Please try to keep up; there will be a quiz at the end. Thursday night, I recommend kicking off your evening at one of two happy hours. DJ Meegs will be bringing the deep house vibes at The Embassy Row Hotel from 6pm to 8pm, well worth checking out if you’re in the neighborhood, and over at Dunya the Milk Chocolate City crew have the 12th edition of their rooftop happy hour, with special guest DJ Ron Tinsley, along with the Milk Chocolate City DJs. I can’t believe I still haven’t made it to one of these happy hours at Dunya yet, but I’ll be fixing that in a couple of weeks when I join them behind the decks as their special guest on October 1. Top pick for Thursday night is House Rituals at Toro Toro DC, with DJ Heather Femia supported by MLEM. It’s looking to be a busy weekend for Heather.. get out and support her at Toro Toro! Great to see local headliners, but we won’t see more of this unless we get out and support our locals. Another great option for Thursday night is The Business End at Velvet Lounge, with regulars Wave Age and Philco joined by Jandro for house, deep and tech all night.

Get yourself in the dance floor mood on Friday with the WTF?! Radio Show with Kochi and Ramirez. These guys know what’s up, and they’ll be delivering the goods as always. Tune in at Sugar Shack Recordings. Now I really can’t choose one top pick for Friday, so I’m going with two. You’re just going to have to do the U Street shuffle and bounce between U Street Music Hall and Flash all night. Originally Crazy P were scheduled to play at U Hall as part of a ridiculous line up including Jacques Renault and Zimmer. Unfortunately, due to visa issues Crazy P won’t be able to make it, so our latest Meet the Locals Podcast contributor  zacheser has been added to the line up on opening duties! If you liked his podcast, head over to U Hall early. It’s free before 11, so you’ve got every incentive to get there early. Over at Flash, Mobilee RecordsAnja Schneider headlines on the main floor with support from Edo and Heather Femia, while Body Werk returns to the Flash Bar. This month I’m joined by Aaron Sparks, and I can guarantee you quality vibes open to close. If you’re heading up to the main floor at Flash on Friday, please stop by the booth in the bar and say hi! Two more great options for Friday night are The Boys Are Back In Town: A Celebration of Ricardo Juarez with Caleb L’Etoile, Philip Goyette and Philco at Zeba Bar, and Darkroom House Sessions  Vol 1 with the Milk Chocolate City crew at Backbar. Passionate local DJs, doing their thing… get out there and support them!

Top pick for all you house lovers the early part of Saturday night is Body Werk: Everybody Loves Music Reunion at DC9 Nightclub with Joe Liehr, Juan Zapata and Dimitri Max taking you back to the good old ELM days in the main room, while up on the rooftop I’ll be bringing the vibes open to close with a rare all digital set. Three talented DJs reunited to werk that amazing Void Acoustics sound system open to close. This is one for the house heads! However, this is just the appetizer. The main course on Saturday night is Deep Sugar at The Paradox in Baltimore for the first in their three part series of parties celebrating their 12th birthday, headlined by none other that Tony Humphries. Yeah, you heard that right! If you call yourself a house head and you’re not at the Dox in the early hours of Sunday morning, then you’d better have a damn good excuse. The main floor, the Chamber and the Courtyard will all be open for business with a huge list of DJs, all Deep Sugar alumni… too many to list here; I’d be here all night! Check out the flyer for full details. We’ll be assembling a thick crew of heads on the dance floor at Body Werk at DC9, then hitting 95 North to Baltimore and dancing at the Dox until sunrise!

Best choice for the techno soldiers on Saturday is Recondite with DJ Lisa Frank and Ron Jackson at U Street Music Hall, and for quality tech house beats, head over to Flash for former Truow resident Patrice Baumel and Bwana with support from Parker. Both solid options for a great night on the dance floor. There’s definitely a lot of excitement about Recondite‘s appearance in DC, and with local favorites DJ Lisa Frank and Ron Jackson in support, we recommend getting there early to reserve your spot on the dance floor.

My top pick for Sunday is FORWARD Presents: The ORB with David & Friends at The Howard Theatre. This is a huge booking by our friends at FORWARD, and I reckon this will be the perfect way to decompress after a long Saturday night on the dance floor. I’d be willing to bet the majority of you are familiar with The Orb‘s oeuvre, so you’ll already know you’ll have to give up your electronic music lover credentials if you miss this one. If the name The Orb means nothing to you, then please leave this blog immediately and do your research. Either way, grab your advanced tickets now. Seriously, what are you still doing here? Go grab your tickets for The Orb, then come back and resume reading. If we don’t support amazing events like this bringing electronic music history to our fair city, we won’t be able to have nice things in future.

Next pick for Sunday is another legend, this time of the house music variety, Roger Sanchez at Soundcheck. I’ve not been to Soundcheck yet, and I haven’t heard anything good or bad, but this is one hell of a booking. Door tax is high for this event, as is to be expected, but it’s a great opportunity to catch a true house legend in a small club context right here in DC. Finally, if you fancy a bit of Burning Man themed dress up on Sunday, head over to ESL for Sundays Rooftop Groovetop Edition with Tara Brooks, supported by a killer local line up including recent Meet the Locals Podcast contributor Sarah Myers, Heather Femia and Jandro. See, I told you Heather was busy! Oh, and did I mention this one’s free, so throw on your finest Playa inspired threads and get down with the crew… and if you need a break from the mayhem, Sam Burns and Honest Lee will be holding things down elsewhere in the building.

Well that wraps it up for this now… another ridiculous weekend in the District. If that doesn’t keep you happy, I don’t know what will. Take a step back and appreciate how good we’ve got it in this city. Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez, The Orb, Recondite, Crazy P, Anja Schneider, Patrice Baumel, and a whole host of super talented locals. And that doesn’t even cover this weekend! Oh, and did I mention that next weekend will be even more ridiculous? You’d better check back next week for details, because you won’t want to miss a thing.

Here’s all the flyers and event links for this week’s picks, and you’ll find all the rest after the picks. See you on the dance floor!
