The Weekend Rundown

Friday, June 27

Congorock @ Create Nightclub

Noize Fridays this week features the unique sounds of Italian electro house producer, Congorock. Following his 2010 hit, “Babylon,” Rocco Rampino quickly found fame and also toured with pop/R&B singer, Rihanna. His musical sound includes African percussion instruments and tribal bass lines and will definitely keep booties moving on the massive Create dancefloor.

Jonas Rathsman, Isaac Tichauer, and Sleazemore @ Sound Nightclub

Framework Fridays are a consistent place to get your TGIF dance on in Hollywood. This week brings in French Express artists, Jonas Rathsman and Isaac Tichauer, along with Sleazemore from Lights Down Low. Sound’s minimal “club antics” and maximal Funktion1 sound system always keep the focus on the outstanding talent, and don’t forget to grab some munchies at the grub hub by the entrance.

Elation Pool Party @ The Sofitel Hotel (Noon – 6 p.m.)

Summer has arrived in California and there is no better compliment to soaking up sunshine than some seriously sick beats. The Sofitel Hotel will host the Elation pool party and features local deep house artists Danny B, Adam Auburn, Mr Overtime, and Shanto. This party is the epitome of what a house music lover’s Saturday should look like, so throw on your swimsuit and come crab some cocktails.

Roger Sanchez and Butch @ Avalon Hollywood

Roger Sanchez brings his underground sound to one of Hollywood’s staple house venues. Hailing form New York, Roger has been in the game since the mid-’90s and has become a name synonymous with dance music. With a supporting set by LA local, Butch, this will be a perfect night to dance into morning at Avalon’s infamous afterhours, post-Avaland.

Not Everyone Understands House Music @ Artesia Bar (Redondo Beach)

A little something for the beach-side folks… the monthly underground party is brought to you by JoJo Electro owner, Mike Mattarocci, who has been a long-time influencer in LA’s dance music culture. The lineup includes Highpockets, Wahine, Jason Rath, and Charles Feelgood and goes from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Last month’s edition of NEUHM was awesome, and this will be an event to keep your ears on.
