What's happenin this week

No 'Week in Dance' this week, but it probably would've looked something like this:


The Trouble&Bass crew line up another solid party bringing in the wonderful Boy 8-Bit from South London. He's done remixes for loads of artists on Southern Fried Records and other labels and his 'Fog Bank EP' is scheduled to be digitally released on Trouble & Bass on March 25th. XLR8R wrote a short piece about him last month, but I prefer the unabridged interview.

If you're looking for something to get you going for tonight, Trouble & Bass have a lot of mixes for download on their myspace. I love all the T&B deejays, but I have to recommend the Drop the Lime mixes especially - quite good.

If you're looking for something a little less bass-heavy for Thursday Dave is back deejaying at 205 with his People Don't Dance No More party. With Dan & Eugene from Escort, Liv Spencer (Still Going/Dfa), and Robot Blair deejaying it's sure to be a disco-friendly affair.

Friday it's back to the French electro goodness that has thankfully been passing through New York more and more lately. Ed Banger head Busy P stops by between Justice's DC and Boston tour dates to deejay at Le Royale. RSVP here to get on the $10 reduced list. There were a limited number of advanced tickets sold, but there aren't any left. Le Royale is a pretty small venue that will fill up quickly so get there early.

Saturday the madness continues at Studio B with JDH and Dave P's Fixed party. Should be a great night of live electro with Australia's Cut Copy and Philly's Pink Skull. Pink Skull are scheduled to go on at 11:30, Cut Copy at 12:30 w/ JDH & Dave P deejaying the rest of the time. Online tickets are sold out. Tickets will be sold at the door the night of the show for $12.

If you're getting tired of Studio B/electro/Brooklyn, that same night woobly house master Jesse Rose will be stopping by Sullivan Room's Watergate party on his 'Playing Around' tour. Jesse will be releasing his first compilation 'Playing Around' on his label Made To Play on April 28th.

"showcasing made to play's finest moments as well as previously unreleased exclusive cuts. this double cd includes tracks and remixes by jesse rose, claude vonstroke, trevor loveys, sinden, chris duckenfield, oliver $, deadset, magik johnson and many more.

the concept is simple, the tracks are made, dj's play them and dance floors go mental. as main stays in the sets of dj's like switch, luciano, claude vonstroke, dj t, and derrick carter you will have without doubt been rocking away to the unmistakable sound of made to play in clubs over the last few years. the formula is tried and tested every time..."

If the album is any indication, should be a night of great dance music. Advance tickets available here. Jesse's not over here too often so don't sleep on this!

DJ Fame and resident dj Van Scott are also spinning. I haven't seen DJ Fame before, but have seen Van deejay many times. He plays very eclectic mixes, jumping from genre to genre, with making you move being the common ground.

Get out there and get yourself warmed up for the rest of March. There is no let up when it comes to good shows this month.
