This past Thursday, 3/24/11, DC nightlife was treated to the progressive house sounds of Michael Woods. Having just finished an epic night spinning in Miami at Funkagenda’s Funkfarm party, Michael Woods still managed to give 110% to Lima Lounge DC. Energetic, lively and full of spirit, Michael ripped a bangin set. Armed with nothing but Ableton and his unique sound of hard-hitting, dirty kicks and uplifting, progressive build-ups, Woods wanted to show DC nightlife that true progressive house still lives.

The dance floor, while not overly packed, teemed with infamous glow heads who hung on every beat, every kick and every drop like their life depended on it. As their heads and arms aimed toward the ceiling, the beats of Michael Woods, electrified the crowd, sending them into a world of dark, deep progressive house. People went absolutely fucking nuts. Drop after drop seemed to push the crowd and Lima to the edge. Few stood still. Most closed their eyes and danced uncontrollably. Unlike some DJs who stand emotionless in the DJ booths, Woods seemed to enjoy the music just as much as we did. He danced, he smiled and he threw his arms up towards the ceiling. He was having just as much as fun as DC nightlife.

Because Michael currently enjoys world fame as an incredible remixer and producer, he wanted to give his DC fans a treat. From remixes of Underworld, Martin Solvieg, John O’Callaghan to Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and Missy Elliott, Woods is a highly sought after DJ. His set featured all of his famous tunes. He dropped Always Love A Film (Michael Woods Remix) by Underworld, First Aid and No Access, In For The Kill (MW remix) by La Roux, a dirty mashup of Dynamic and Show Me Love, Nitro, I Said (MW Remix) by Chris Lake and Deadmau5, Louder Than Words by Afrojack & David Guetta, two different Daft Punk mashups (One More Time & Around The World) and his famous remix of Energy 52’s Café Del Mar.

From the head of Diffused Records to Markus Schulz and Mark Knight’s 2010 breakthrough artist, Michael Woods seems to have everything going his way. And with his soon to be released Ministry of Sound album, titled Residents, it seems as though nothing can stop this guy. People flew from all over country to hear the sounds of Michael Woods at Lima. If you have a chance to see him, do not let the opportunity slip through your fingertips. And be sure to check out his Residents album which features exclusive, unreleased MW material.

With everything going on as far as flights out of Miami during the week of Ultrafest 2011, Lima Lounge was lucky Michael Woods made it at all! The Ministry of Sound 2011 resident and head of Diffused Records thumped DC nightlife for hours!!
