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.

It’s a BYOB joint, the needle drops at 11pm and you’ll be dancing until sunrise. Don’t sleep on this one, people!

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.

Spring is finally here, looks like the weather’s gonna be warming up this weekend, and things are really starting to heat up out there on the dance floor here in Washington DC. This week sees the welcome return of Daytime Discothèque, which celebrates its third anniversary on Sunday with a fantastic line up including Tilman (fine records ), Trev-Ski ( Live Set ), Juan Zapata, Samantha Francesca, Hot Coffee & Tom Fee. I’m all about that live set from a man like Trev-ski. Can’t wait! It’s a BYOB joint, and they’ll be firing up the grill, so it’s bring your own meats and veggies, too. A proper family fair all round. Needle drops around 1pm, so if you’re up for some quality Sunday afternoon vibes, grab your ticket now. No door sales, so don’t sleep! Hopefully lots more to come from the Daytime Discothèque crew over the summer; looking forward to the kick off this Sunday.

Very little time this week, so I’ll need to make this quick. Before I get in to this week’s happenings, I want to give a quick mention to a worthy fundraiser that I hope you can contribute a few bucks towards. Andrew Prince aka DJ Amp, a major contributor to the electronic music community in Baltimore and DC, had around $20k’s worth of sound gear stolen from him last week from a venue in Baltimore. Andrew provided sound for our Beats Maneuver events at Public Bar last summer, and it was always a pleasure working with him. Andrew is gives so much to the community, supporting many different events and crews, and it really isn’t right that this happened to him. That equipment is his livelihood, and it really sucks that someone would do this. It is a testament to the local music community that a fundraiser set up to replace the equipment has raised nearly $10k in less than a week, but there is still a ways to go. if you can spare even a few bucks, please consider donating. Andrew is good people, and it’s not right that this should happen to him. A few bucks from everyone will help make things right.

Donate to the Fundraiser for Andrew Prince

Also, here is a list of the equipment that was stolen. If you hear of anyone trying to sell this gear, get in touch.
