Ready for the weekend #21

It’s the middle of July, which means summer is about halfway over (optimists would have a different take). There’s no time to waste another weekend.

The Plan

The Soundtrack

We all need more club music in our lives. Cousin Cole obliges with his Major Rager mix, over 40 bangers crammed into as many minutes.

Ready for the weekend #20

Between the Fourth of July and prepping for a new gig, I didn’t post that much this week. This weekend would provide a good chance to catch up, if it weren’t for all these events.

The Soundtrack

I like Creep, and you should too. Check out this mix they made for Field Day, which includes everything from Grimes and Lykke Li to Brenmar and SBTRKT. Did they pick these tracks from my iTunes Most Played list? Who knows!

Ready for the weekend #19

The countdown until the long weekend has begun. Make sure you don’t waste it with these helpful tips.

If you’ve already spun these new mixtapes, give this mix by Nguzunguzu a chance. It features songs from the duo’s Timesup EP, the first release on Kingdom‘s Fade to Mind label.

Ready for the weekend #18

With Tuesday’s Summer Solstice, the season is officially upon us. Other than BBQs and the requisite outdoor activities, what’s on deck this weekend?

The Plan

  • Friday: For Happy Hour, join TGRIOnline at U Street Music Hall for Michael Jackson is Still Alive, where four DJs ensure that the King of Pop’s memory will live forever. Best late night option is Maison (with DJ TMY and Gavin Holland); best later night option is $weat $hop (with Jackie O and Denman).
  • Saturday: Tickets are still available for oft-imitated indie rock gods Dinosaur Jr. at the 9:30 Club. For even more 80s and 90s nostalgia, Henry Rollins will be interviewing the band before the show.
  • Sunday: Drum and bass innovator LTJ Bukem stops by U Hall, presented by Anniething Goes & 2Tuff. Don’t miss one of Bukem’s few US tour dates, at one of the best venues for his atmospheric low-end sounds.

The Soundtrack

Another day, another moombahton mix: this time, it’s the latest volume of TGRI’s Culipandeo series, spun by 20-year-old Australian J-Trick. Listen how they get down down under, with plenty of exclusives including “Amplifire” by Diplo and Skrillex and “That Jeffrey” by Heartbreak and Toddla T.

Ready for the weekend #17

Last night’s Moombahton Massive IV was quite the experience, as those nights have tended to be. If that wasn’t enough music, dancing, and partying for the week, here are some other options.

The Plan

  • Friday: BYT’s vitaminwater uncapped LIVE space shuts down after tonight, so this is your last chance to get your corporate-sponsored party on. Do it in style with top notch DJs, including the Nouveau Riche crew, Cam Jus, DJ TMY, and Baltimore’s finest DJ Pierre.
  • Saturday: I’ll be indulging my culinary desires and my eye for alliteration at the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Festival (unfortunately, this one has been sold-out for a while). Designer Drugs returns to U Hall, with Alvin Risk and Denman on the bill (be sure not to miss the openers, if you go).
  • Sunday: I’m just going to copy and paste this for the remainder of the summer: Happy Sundays at the Donovan House during the day, and No Love Lost (or Tropixxx, depending on the weekend) at Velvet Lounge.

The Soundtrack

I’ll let Diplo describe his latest moombahton mix for Mad Decent Radio: “Moombahton Is so mad and buzzy and wierd [sic] and crazy . We are on Its dick here at Mad Decent.” Well said. Enjoy.

Ready for the weekend #16

This week reminded us that yes, Virginia, there is climate change. In DC, that means 100 degree days followed by a weekend of thunderstorms. What else is going on?

The Plan

The Soundtrack

At the center of France’s dance music evolution is Club Cheval, a crew that includes Panteros666, Canblaster, Myd, and Samtiba. Their mix for Mishka’s Keep Watch series is Club Cheval at their best, seamlessly mixing house, slow jam material, and future bass. “Keep watch,” indeed.

My vacation has taken me from Portland to San Francisco, but here’s a view of DC’s weekend (from 3,000 miles away). Photo courtesy FFFOUND.

The Plan

The Soundtrack

Jacques Greene is one of the best purveyors of rhythm and bass. His hour-long stint on Rinse FM is one of his finest mixes yet; any DJ mix that kicks off with The Weeknd is good in my book.
