well i'm back from puerto rico! what's new in the world of DC house music ? how was tony on saturday?
club scene in puerto rico is scary ricky martin euro.the running joke among most of my friends is that "they won't let you in unless you have pointy shoes". There really is no dress-code free haven for the dancers.Break dancing is visibly popular on the streets and raves are pretty huge (of course they are now having problems with kids doing too much k and wiggin out).There are a few buzz-style clubs but they play mostly florida style breaks and drum and bass.Drum and bass is pretty big--they have lots of afterhours and one-off party geared towards d n' b . There is one place i heard about called Stanley's E-net Club--its like a cross between the 18th street lounge , an internet cafe and maybe andalu/red.They get classy crowds , beautiful women, and high level dress code . Supposedly they play the whole gamut of electronic music and house was included in their club-description.I was reading a nightlife magazine and saw a picture of Dj Heather on the decks in the club.I have the feeling that they probaly get harder more chicago oriented house acts down there (there were bad boy bill cd's everywhere..scary) but i assume good headliners make it down there beacause theres a lot of good chicago djs. I didn't get a chance to make it because they were only open thursday friday and saturday and i was too busy drinking for cheap(it rains rum down there:) with the family.Plus all my clothes had sand in them. But thats as much as i could get from my brief and beautiful trip down there. Hope this helps for anyone interested in visiting la isla del encanto.
