Journeyman French DJ Phil Weeks will be inspiring the soiling and subsequent washing of your dirty laundry at Laundry Bar when he brings it for a one-off on December 15.
It's true, too the washing machines are available at 7:00 a.m., so if you've been really, really rotten, you can erase at least some of the evidence before dragging your carcass to the future in-laws' for regifted fruitcake and instant coffee.
An old-schooler who prefers vinyl, Weeks sticks to proper house styles, as evidenced by his selections for Robsoul's Most Wanted Vol. 2, the latest mix issued by his own imprint, Robsoul Recordings. The November indie release includes cuts from Chris Carrier, Hector Moralez, the Dopeheadz, and Week's widely lauded remix of Derrick Carter's "Where U At." Friday night you can anticipate experiencing old-school Chicago house featuring deep beats often bordering on tech house, with some of Weeks's own tuneage created using machines such as 808s, 909s, and other screw-the-new-breed antiquities thrown in.
