Backbar & DC Raves Radio are joining forces again to bring you another great event in the catacombs of the 9:30 Club at Backbar. Come enjoy the dark atmosphere and great bar selection.



blue7, known by the relatively benign name of Matthew Smith in the real world, is an up and coming DJ from Northern Virginia. In the underground dance scene, you'll hear heart pounding electro house with hints of disco, indie rock and hip-hop.
Recent associations with GrindHouse, DC Raves Radio and GLAS Mix Project have provided much needed exposure to allow blue7 to treat your ears with the music we love.

(Give : Transit : One Love Massive : District Burners : Set Artists - DC/VA)

Whether you're catching a Progressive, Liquid DNB, Breaks or Tech House set...one thing remains the same, you will be taken on an aural journey that will leave you wanting more. For Ramiro, it began long ago with early 90's 'Techno'. A passion sprang forth and he dedicated himself completely to this newfound love. In '99 Ramiro took to the decks to further hone his passion for EDM. Soon after, he was an integral factor in the startup of 'Give' a local EDM crew dedicated to providing quality music for free to the masses. Taking the lead of Transit in 2006 - Transit is now the longest running EDM weekly in the DMV. Ramiro's visibility in the scene and skills behind the decks have landed him in some legendary venues playing alongside legendary artists. He has since become a member of District Burners and has fully embraced the 'burner' lifestyle. More recently his exploits have landed him a spot on One Love Massives roster and is now a part of Set Artists based in Cali. His experience coupled with his innate ability to know what the people want will leave dancers and dancefloors glistening with sweat.

William El Basehead

William eL Basehead, aka Will Base, aka Billy Basehead...a long-standing member of the DC Raves Radio family. Will has been enthralled with electronic music for the last two decades and stepped up to the decks for the first time in 1998 at James Madison University, hosting a weekly show on WXJM that consisted of deep house, techno and breaks, and bringing in local talent for guest dj spots. Upon moving to Northern VA in 2004, he sought out underground djs and artists, then found the Mixed Signals crew. Will aided in throwing some very memorable techno parties that included the likes of Detroit Techno Militia, Ryan Crosson and Dylan Drazen, and Jeff Samuels, just to name a few. Will Base spent this time doing opening sets and honing his skills behind the decks. It was at this time he met the early owners and operators of what would become DC Raves Radio, at the time broadcasted on StressFactor. Now Will is an integral part of DCRR, keeping you refilled every week with fresh podcasts from our Sunday Funday show. Will is involved in promoting and playing events that we hope are held in the highest regard and in keeping with excellent party etiquette. This party will be no exception; Will is gong to be rocking the 1200s with a special vinyl throwback set for Erin Carroll's birthday!! Come celebrate with us and as always get your mutherfunkin groove on=)
