eventseekr Shuffle- House

Let’s get a little funky this week. Here are eleven house music tracks that are sure to put some bounce in your step. House music has a full range of sub-genres–this little playlist includes a little mix of classic ’90s house, a hint of disco, some French-touch, a little fidget, sounds from good ‘ol Chicago, and some German-techno thrown in for good measure.

Dance music isn’t meant to be overthought, so just know that each of these eleven tracks accomplishes exactly what the producer/artist set out to do: get you to dance. If you happen to be reading this in a library or dentist office, a little head bobbing is encouraged, at the very least.

Crookers- the Mighty 9/17/2011 [Review]

“I haven’t danced that hard since 2009,” one friend told me the day after a group of us had gone to the Mighty to see fidget house extraordinaires, Crookers. The Italian maestros, Bot and Phra, certainly ended their U.S. tour with quite the bang.

Crookers at the Mighty 9/17/2011 [Preview]

The Bay Area is full of good electronic dance music (EDM) in the month of September. This past weekend saw Ed Banger Records’ SebastiAn roll through town with a stop at Mezzanine with an extraordinary set. Next week sees the return of LovEvolution after a year hiatus. Electronic music revelers will celebrate the return of the annual afterparty of the LovEvolution parade at the Oracle Arena in Oakland with Moby, Laidback Luke and Dash Berlin among others. One of the best EDM venues in San Francisco is the Mighty, where I’ve had the opportunity to watch Boys Noize on two separate occasions. Crookers will be ending their current U.S. world tour there, in what I hope to be a likewise awesome show.
