Flash welcomes back house music and global dance music royalty, Louie Vega. From New York residencies that spanned over four decades at fabled venues like Red Zone, Sound Factory Bar, and most recently Cielo, Mr. Vega’s talents as a DJ and producer are unmatched. The NY native is a mega force that’s painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from house, salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip hop, gospel and soul. He will be joined by Seb Wildblood. His labels Church, Coastal Haze and All My Thoughts feature releases from the likes of Tom VR, Ciel, D. Tiffany, and Chaos in the CBD among others. Shadowy atmospheres and upbeat deep rhythms give his sets an alluring, hypnotic mood that will portray the vibe of his popular All My Thoughts parties here in the District. Don’t miss an evening for the mind, body, and soul.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Grammy winner and 6x nominee, with a career spanning over 20 years. Louie Vega is a mega force in the House Music industry with no signs of slowing down. A leader in global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from house, salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip hop, gospel and soul.
What distinguishes the Grammy winner and 7-time nominee as one of the best living house music deejays is his ability to evolve alongside the times, distill the current musical landscape through his unique taste and put his own timeless spin on all the music he creates.
“Little” Louie Vega, as he is sometimes affectionately known, was born in the Bronx into a musically gifted family (his father is a jazz saxophonist and his uncle, Salsa King Héctor Lavoe). The “Little” moniker is ironic, given the fact that by the 80s he was deejaying at clubs he wasn’t even old enough to attend, holding residencies at Studio 54, Devil’s Nest, Heartthrob, Roseland and playing at the Palladium, Area, 1018 and other seminal New York City Clubs. Soon Vega was producing his own remixes, which included Information Society’s “Running”, “What’s On Your Mind”, Noel’s “Silent Morning”, Cover Girl’s “Because Of You”, and Debbie Gibson’s “Only in my Dreams.”

DJ, producer and serial label head, Seb Wildblood is currently exploring the deeper side of electronic music. As an in-demand DJ, producer, and remixer, Seb Wildblood is entering a new chapter with the long-awaited release of his debut album, sketches of transition, coming out July 26th on all my thoughts – the latest edition in the trifecta of labels he runs including Church and Coastal Haze. With previous support from the likes of Bonobo, Mary Anne Hobbs, and Move D, Wildblood’s relationship with the dance floor has revved up, fusing rough house cuts with curious percussion and not-so-conventional breakbeats, a distinct sound in a fast moving underground movement has been carved. Progressing from balmy deep house and jazz of his beginnings to a more intense dance-floor driven sound, his most recent EP, Grab The Wheel, nods to 90's garage and even reverb-soaked dub techno, without compromising on his signature emotive synthesis.
This year will also see his most ambitious world DJ tour to date and part one includes major sets everywhere from Ibiza’s legendary Pikes Hotel, New York’s Public Records, Australia’s Splendour in the Grass, Bogota’s Kaputt to even a special appearance at Burning Man, where he will play atop the iconic Robot Heart bus once again. His imprints also continue regularly releasing some of their most renowned music to date including Ciel, D.Tiffany, Julius Steinhoff & Tom VR to name a few.
