Heather’s Weekend Party Picks Jan 24 – 26 2013

1 Comment

Toronto’s party world has it going on this weekend! This is the last weekend I’ll be out of town, with the exception of Saturday, so writing this post about these awesome parties is making me even more excited to come back.

Every weekend is a crazy weekend in Toronto…if you know what’s up!

THURSDAY JANUARY 24 2013

Project 647 // PROTOCOL @ Grotto Lounge

Grotto Lounge is where I would be heading Thursday night for some wicked house music.

Bones McLeod, a.k.a. Paul Beazy (fellow Nova Scotian) has made me lose my shit on the dance floor in parties past with his track selection. He’s not afraid to mix in a break beat tune when its called for! He can also spit serious rhymes, but that’s another story.

Dick Diamonds, is not only an awesome party thrower, but crazy awesome on the decks.  I get down hardddddd to his sets, and the combination of Diamonds and Beazy alone will make this party AMAZING. Throw Mike Vieira (spelled it right!), Sumation and Jason Myles on top of that and there’s a Thursday night jam to not miss.

Check out some tunes from Mike Vieira to help you make up your should-I-go-out-on-a-Thursday mind.

There are other cool parties happening on Thursday, like Archi-Textures and Lollibaloonza, check out my calendar!

 

FRIDAY JANUARY 25 2013

AUDIOFLY @ Wrongbar

First Friday night party choice hands down!  Serious. Audiofly are dope. Over Christmas I was catching up on podcasts and was totally blown away by the set they did for Electronic Groove:

If you are into house-infused deep techno danceable beats, this is the party for you. I always look forward to dancing to Jamie Kidd and Jeff Button‘s sets and throwing Brian Johnson and Koki in the mix will result in pure wicked party vibes.  On Friday night, Wrongbar is where I would be in a heartbeat.

There are so many other party choices to go to on Friday! Junglists! Kenny Ken and Chrissy Chriss are at Annex Wreckroom!

 

SATURDAY JANUARY 26 2013

NOSYNCStacksofwax#NoSync @ Bassline

Breaks, house AND techno? Yes please! I am so happy that I WILL be making it to this party. I haven’t been to a #NoSync jam before, but I have heard good things 🙂

John E, a Toronto rave history-maker, will be playing some funky house and breaks for all you people that like to GET DOWN! Check out a taste of his sound from 1990.

Aaron Bradley of funkyhousebeats.com will be gracing the decks to share some house music, Sage will also be dishing out some house and….if Soundcloud is telling me the truth, WestsideWax is a techno DJ. Looks like an electronic music salad!!! Yup, Bassline is where it’s at.

House it up with this mix from Aaron Bradley….happy dancing!

SO many other great jams going on. Gallery Reunion, Late & Deep, OVI M, and PAN POT are all other parties I’d hit if I could split myself into multiple Heathers.

That’s it  from me for  now…..see you on the dance floor.
