Grand Opening of U Street Music Hall Tonight

Tonight is the grand opening of the U St. Music Hall, a space on 12th and U devoted to great sound and a no bullshit vibe. I had a chance to venture into the basement space last night, and I have to say, I’m psyched for the potential of this place. For most of the night DJ Will Eastman was performing a set at about a third of the sound system’s potential volume. At one point co-owner Jesse Tittsworth walked up to the booth and cranked the master…it was a face melting barrage of sound. Seriously, dangerous shit.

TJ’s Deep Cut of the Week – Midfield General

Maybe not the deepest of the deep, but when I was shopping around last weekend and saw this baby I couldn’t let it pass. I first heard “Reach Out” some years ago at a friend’s basement show/party between two punk sets and that was it, if there was ever a specific moment in which I was turned onto the art of DJing and “the dig”, that was the one. Midfield General, (Damian Harris), was one of the original founders of Skint records, best known for their huge success releasing Fatboy Slim and perfecting the big beat sound of the mid-90’s. Check it out, the first three tracks are included on the 12”, but I threw in the Space Raiders Mix for kicks even though it was only included on the CD re-release, LOVE IT.
