Dirty South at Club Glow Washington DCDirty South is affiliated. Mobbed up in fact. A known associate of the Swedish House Mafia, Glow was lucky enough to have the Aussie grace the decks of Fur Nightclub last Saturday night. Uber chill and super amped to spin, the look on his face said it all when asked if he was excited to be back in DC. “Are you kidding me?!?! Of course!!”

When the SHM and affiliates come to play one generally expects to feel that driving, underground vibe with a hint of uplifting synths. Dirty South brought all of that to the table and so much more. Spotlights dashed across his frame as he took control amidst the “oohs” and “aahs” of Club Glow. He tweaked the mixer, freaked it to his specifications and proceeded to drop the hotness. It was some of the more blissful house of recent memory. Not too dark, certainly not cheesy and without question high-spirited. It was as if the sunshine from the past week in DC had been contained within the walls of Fur. He brought an eternally happy energy to the room. Spring truly has arrived.

The man progressed his set as though he was giving a tour of his native Down Under. He began with the excitement of a new experience and proceeded to rip the room a part wit the rumbling, banging house we’ve grown to expect. It was like he had taken us off the plane, strapped us into a jeep and embarked on an off road tour of the Outback, highlighted by remixes of “Open Your Heart” and the unreleased Miike Snow – Silvia (Dirty South and Sebastian Ingrosso remix).  Dirty South DJing at Club Glow Nightclub Washington DC

Circa 2am he shifted the off road excursion into 4 wheel drive and began heading up. It started with a tease of “Sweet Disposition” and was followed by banger after banger of relentless, uplifting house. Most memorable was a mashup sampling the guitar chords from Daft Punk’s “Aerodynamic.” As the energy climbed the mountain of dance so too did the crowd. At the peak, Dirty South was dropping uplifting, trance-like gems. The crowd flew over the Pacific, the Great Barrier Reef below, eyes wide shut, heads in the clouds, arms stretched towards freedom. He summed up the night with a few choice words from The Temper Trap, “Songs of desperation, I played them for you. Just stay there, cause I’ll be coming over. And while our blood’s still young, it’s so young, it runs and we won’t stop til it’s over. Won’t stop til surrender. A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs.”
