House Proud! Last weekend with DVS1 was allthat! Major shouts to everyone for your patience, your love of the sounds- and for each other! As another year comes to a close, we want to thank you for sharing that energy and putting on for your love of house-music, down in the basement! This past year was full of some seriously slammin-sets from some of the awesome selectors in our city, as well as across the globe. These nights spent together are really something special and we can’t wait to head into the new year with you!
Kicking off 2019 with:
(Freak of the Week)
We’re pretty stoked to welcome DJ Nola back to the HP decks! DJ Nola got her start as a DJ over 15 years ago as a radio DJ for the Duluth station KUMD. Soon after, she discovered house music and gravitated towards it. After nearly a decade of primarily playing house music, she started exploring the songs that were sampled in some of her favorite house tracks, at which time she got really into disco and funk music – interests that carry on to this day. In a day and age when most DJs use computers or CDJs to ply their trade, DJ Nola plays almost exclusively vinyl. She threw a series of disco parties in Duluth before moving to Minneapolis. Nola brought that infectious energy with her and it was immediate felt on floors- all over the city! Nola has since started a new funk and disco party called Freak of the Week, held at various venues around town. Nola always brings a fresh angle and it will be a treat to have her rotate some of the finest for everyone, in January!
( The Headspace Collective)
We’re also stoked to welcome Neil Fox to the HP decks! We’ve been enjoying thiswon’s sets for some time now. Neil has been loving music and hitting dancefloors since 93′ and is notably a major part of The Headspace Collective (THC), which is a loose conglomerate that Fox co-founded with Brandi Rasmussen and Elaine Marigold Avery. THC puts together great experiences that take music fans onto floors from MPLS all the way to somewhere, WI and back. Neil plays it all and you can sense the passion behind the selections made, each time he steps to the decks to share sets with dance heads. Neil has been representing eclectic and infectious sets for the last several years and it will be a treat to have him lace the HP room with some serious flavor. All about it!
(ReFuel your Soul)
Tony Fuel is a passionate producer and selector in the House Music Community. He’s always focused on what’s timeless and sophisticated. His sets shuffle with the same energy and inspiration he’s been chasing, since the early days of finding the sounds. Always working with great artists here and abroad, thiswon is putting his signature-sound-stamp on everything that he does. Tony Fuel puts out a fantastic mix series called ReFuel Your Soul each Month and it’s chalked full of local and international selections that ooze energy and keep you rewinding that cursor. Tony has years of putting down infectious DJ sets from the NoCoast center, all the way up and down the west coast. Fervent supporter of the MPLS underground House Music community- this one knows how to find the right groove and keep your body-movin!
