Thanks and congrats to Tue Tran & Crew for providing our party with a home since 2007.ESCUELA is one of only a handful of events in the USA committed to celebrating the spirit of House and respecting the sound by staying true to the Underground House Nation -- which doesn't mean it's not a sweaty' sexy ass jumpin house party. Like many respected global house parties, ESCUELA hopes to raise the bar & consciousness of the MidWest by it's select DJs tearing the roof off the mutha and bringing the special spirit of house to STL. These are the times, especially, when the children of true House Music need a lift of Inspiration, to hear the less-heard voices and sounds testifying to a Deeper Love, to get some JUMP back into their Motivation. Transcendence of your earthly troubles through dancing to a greater Soulful Harmony and Beat-- that's what ESCUELA's all about.... See YOU on the Dancefloor / First Saturdays at UPSTAIRS
Best Dance Club - 2009
Some of us still like our dance clubs to whiff faintly of the underground. It's not that we want a dive or a lounge or, worse, a red-carpet casino circus ring. We don't want to be seen or to see anybody else who wants to be seen. It's not that we're snobs, we're just getting too old (or we're otherwise still too young) to pretend to be somebody we're not. We're smart. We want a dance floor that's smallish and littered at the end of the night with fliers promoting sessions such as "Love Hz" or "Kinky Disco." We want dim lighting, a video screen and a floor that packs in bodies real tight when the music's right. We want our DJs close enough to look them in the eye. And God knows we need their music to deliver something unexpectedly soulful or energetically pounding, something we've never heard before and that's just enough to get us outside of ourselves and back into ourselves and shaking our asses on the dance floor.
