DC House Grooves Meet The Locals Podcast #3: Boss Ross

Boss Ross Here we are with the third edition of the DC House Grooves Meet The Locals Podcast. For this edition, we’ve got a superb underground mix from a regular on the local DC scene, Boss Ross. Originally hailing from Detroit, you can find Boss Ross playing regularly in and around DC. Over to the Boss himself for more about the mix:

“For those who might not know me I play Detroit house and deep techno throughout the MVA area. Playing records before a sometimes captive audience for the last 4.5 years has been a great pleasure and once again I thank everyone who has given me a chance to present the music I am fortunate enough to possess. This mix attempts to combine all of the elements I like to present when I play at venues like Flash, Uhall, Tropicalia, Zeba coach and pole bar and of course the backedbar. Those elements being analog treatment, acid lines, pianos and sparse vocals. I used two Technics SL-1200M3D turntables, one Allen and Heath Xone 22 mixer, two stanton groovemaster cartridges, two mukatsuku disc stabilizers, vinyls and one can of mandarin flavored seltzer to create what you listen to today.

My principal association is to Composite which is a group of seven veteran techno DJs who play a monthly party currently located at Flash nightclub. Composite has several irons in the fire for some great techno coming to familiar places this fall. Additionally, I do gigs for the likes of 88/Forward, Vague Output crew in Baltimore, SelectDC,Trevor Keen and pretty much anyone with a shiny object and a drink ticket. It’s my goal after 6 years to take what I’ve gathered in front of the fine people in this area and make my own tracks. As of now I will continue to collect and mix the best of what comes to my ears. Thank you for lending yours and I look forward to seeing so many great people out and about again very soon.”

DC House Grooves Meet The Locals Podcast #2: Chadwick

For episode #2 of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals podcast we’ve got a great mix from Flash resident Chadwick. Here’s what Chadwick has to say about this mix: “My podcast for DC House Grooves is based on my set from the last Resident Night party at Flash. It’s a peak hour blend of techno, house and tribal rhythms layered with classic loops, effects, acapellas and personal edits. The crowd stayed late and I had a really good time playing off of their energy. The mix was created on 4 decks with 4 effects and most all of the tracks are re-touched live by enhancing the breakdowns, extending parts and blending new elements to build a mix that reflects my sets at Flash. Most importantly though, I hope it keeps your attention and throws a few surprises along the way. Enjoy!”

You can catch Chadwick next at The House That U Built on Sunday, September 28th at Dirty Bar in Washington, DC:


and on Saturday, October 4 in Brooklyn, NYC for Gratitude *NY present Axis Mundi on the Mayan Stage:

DC House Grooves Meet The Locals Podcast #1: Andy Grant – Sunday Rooftop Vibes

DC House Grooves is launching a new podcast series to showcase the talents of local underground house and electronic music DJs in Washington DC. To kick things off, here’s a new all-vinyl mix from the founder of DC House Grooves, Andy Grant. In his own words “The Sunday rooftop season in Washington DC is my favorite time of year, and I’m never more at home than when I’m playing records to a crowd of dancers on the rooftop in the sunshine. When your crowd has been out all weekend, they are at their most receptive to music, so you can get creative, building tension with deep, underground tracks, then releasing it with tracks more familiar to the crowd. This mix captures the the type of set I would play on the rooftop. Something there for everyone!”

You can catch Andy Grant playing at Sundays Rooftop on the Dirty Bar rooftop in Washington, DC on August 31, alongside Birdsmakingmachine, Chris Nitti, R & B, Collins & Yaco.
