Weekend's best dance bets: Danny Howells, Bro Safari, Torro Torro, Tin Man, Dubfire and more
We hope you're not too sleepy after all that food and shopping, because it's time to hit the streets and dance your face off until the sun comes up and Monday rolls around. As always, some great music to soundtrack your weekend, including Danny Howells, Bro Safari, Torro Torro, Tin Man, Dubfire and more. If you feel like lighting up the dancefloor tonight, you've come to the right place. Keep reading for full rundown on this weekend's Dance Card.
When Diplo's Mad Decent spin-off label Jeffree's dropped the Bro Safari single "Da Worm" last year, it brightened the spotlight already shining on Nicholas Weiller. Bro Safari might be a relatively new project, but Weiller, who currently performs under that name, earned his stripes as a DJ and producer with years of bass-heavy joints as Knick, and as half of collaborative projects Evol Intent and Ludachrist. Having put his stamp on mash-ups, glitchy downtempo and hard, dark drum-and-bass, Weiller is focusing his latest evolution on moombahton, along with occasional dalliances with the emerging sub-subgenre of trapstep. After spending the summer on the Bros Gone Wild Tour with Baltimore party veteran Tittsworth, Bro Safari will deliver a set that will probably jump styles like a mad Double Dutcher. But no matter which crate he decides to pull from, the dance floor will be packed for a sermon on serious low-end frequencies. -- Patrick Rodgers
