DC House Grooves Top Picks of the Best Underground House and Techno Events in Washington DC April 4 to April 7

Another amazing, action packed weekend on the dance floor right here in the District of Corruption, and DC House Grooves has the low down on all the good shit. The highlight for this week is Friday night’s jam at the Darkroom in Baltimore featuring two of my favorites all the way from Detroit, Tag aka Scott Grooves and Norm Talley, with support from Feroun and Benoit, brought to you by Kowli Records and Deep Secrets. This one is going to be really special, and to celebrate, DC House Grooves has the super special Uncle Benny discount for you. Use the link below to buy your tickets to get massive 20% discount off advance tickets. That’s one serious discount off the party to be at this weekend! It’s a BYOB joint, the needle drops at 11pm and you’ll be dancing until sunrise. Don’t sleep on this one, people!

If you can’t make the trip to Baltimore this Friday, then head to Focus at Flash for another incredible Friday night line up featuring the very best of techno, house and bougie / funk / soul / electro. On the main floor, catch The Advent aka G Flame with support from local hero, Technofist‘s Damon Bradley. In the Green Room, former Beats Maneuver headliner Gigi Testa brings the very best of house and disco ably supported by DC House Grooves show resident Ramirez, while in the bar, Trev-ski is joined by Haz & Cam-Run for another edition of Modern Class. An epic line up that’s not to be missed! Advance tickets are just $12, so grab yours now!

Before I get into the full list for this weekend, here’s the recording of Saturday night’s DC House Grooves Show #045 on Underground Quality Radiofeaturing me, Andy Grant, and Katrina Mir. Sadly Ramirez couldn’t join us for this one, and we ended up going deeper, dubbier and techier than usual. Seems to be the direction we end up going when Katrina and I go B2B. Check it out below either on SoundCloud or YouTube. We’ll back back with DC House Grooves Show Episode #046 on Saturday April 13 at 10pm. Mark it in your calendars and tune in for the very best in underground vibes served up fresh from the wax.

Other highlights for this weekend include Playlist with Jubilee & Ramirez at Eighteenth Street Lounge and Sleaze‘s second anniversary at Wonderland on Thursday, then on Saturday, the Sequence crew are at it again with a serious line up including Umfang, Akua & Juana (Discwoman) and Furtive. Sequence events are always on point, and they pretty much always sell out, so if you’re thinking of going, don’t waste time; grab your tickets now! They’re on the final release tier, and there won’t be any tickets on the door, so now is your chance. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! It’s a BYOB joint, so make sure you bring what you need with you.

UPDATE: Our friends at the Grand Ancestor warehouse are having a fundraiser in the early hours of Saturday morning, kicking off at 1am with music from Tommy Cornelis, Hot Coffee and Team Zapata. What better way to help keep the lights on and get the rent paid at the best late night spot in town than dancing until sunrise to an all star local line up working the majestic Grand Ancestor sound system. Advance tickets are $20 on eventbrite, and you can make extra donations if you so choose. Always a good time at the spot, and you’ll be helping keeping things going. To be clear, there are no .  tickets  at the  door! You must have an eventbrite ticket to attend.

Ok here we go with my first proper post of 2019, not counting last week’s phoned in edition. Another solid weekend of dance floor vibes here in the District, with quality events to keep you grooving, from Thursday night right through to the early hours of Monday morning.

Highlights this weekend include Playlist with Jubilee & Ramirez at Eighteenth  Street  Lounge on Thursday night, then on Friday night, I’d recommend checking out Lovers and Justin Miller at Wild Days at the Eaton Hotel, and while you’re there, heading downstairs to catch Joe L at Allegory. They’ve got a nice looking line up taking shape in the coming months between Wild Days and Allegory, with plenty of local DJs representing, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend it. Also looking good on Friday is DJ Technics with Djoser at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club. Always a good vibes at Jimmy’s!

Saturday night, all you house heads should look no further that U Street Music Hall, where the Deep Sugar crew take over once again, with Ultra Naté and Lisa Moody working their magic with support from Keenan Orr. Always good vibes with the Deep Sugar crew!

Deep Sugar DC

For those of you of a techno persuasion, SEQUENCE.446 hosts I Hate Models with Katie Rex and local support from Jett Chandon and Juana working the Grand Ancestor Sound System at a DC warehouse location. Always a great crowd at Sequence events, and their zero tolerance policy to any bullshit guarantees a hassle free night on the dance floor. Entry is by advanced ticket only, so make sure you grab yours before they sell out.

Sequence I Hate Models Katie Rex

As you’ve no doubt predicted already, Sunday’s highlight is Eighteenth Street Lounge, with Sam Burns weekly residency in the Gold Room, The Metaphysical in the Main Room, and Hold Tight with Martín Miguel and Super Tuff records head honcho M. Vaughan on the patio. Quality deep vibes across three dance floors to ease you into next week!

Before I get to my full list of Top Picks for the weekend, here is episode #74 of the DC House Grooves Meet the Locals Podcast from Nocturnal Wax, featuring 2+ hours of quality house grooves. Check it out, and catch Nocturnal Wax spinning on Studio 96 every Friday night at 8PM Eastern on WERA 96.7FM in the DC area. We’re always looking for new mixes for the podcast, so please reach out to me through the DC  House  Grooves  Facebook Page if you’re interested in submitting a mix.
