DV-US, a duobased out of Raleigh will make a Greensboro appearance at Blacklight District at Limelighton Friday night. Fresh on the heels of their performance at Imagine Festival, the pair willprobably lay a trap-heavy assault on the dance floor of the Greensboro venue.Billed with the City of Oaks DJs is Snyderand Seanyy, as well as Neuron Husky, King Boo and Nati on theRave Cave Stage.

As if Dance FromAbove bringing Sinkane a fewweeks back wasn’t enough, the DFA squad got tasked with curating the lineup forShow of Hands, a voter registrationevent produced by SynerG, Face to Face and Church World Services on September 24. Also on the lineup is Ismo One, Little People and a special DJ set by !!! (Chk Chk Chk) lead singer AllanWilson. Given DFA’s success in 2015 thus far, this will be surely be theevent to check out that will dwarf all others.

Hopscotch returns to Raleigh this week, and with it comesone of the most epic lineups to ever hit the downtown district. Tycho, Cashmere Cat and TV On TheRadio are just some of the acts performing (which we think are worthy ofnoting in this section, which is devoted to dancing), but then there is also Clang Quartet (whom we featured a fewweeks ago as part of our roundup for CringeCon II), Boulevards, DJ Earl and Pusha T, all of whom will surely have you sweating by the end oftheir respective sets.

Caked Up hit Ziggy’s over the weekend, and with theonce-duo-now-seems-like-a-solo project came the Triad’s DJ Hek Yeh and Trillion.Trillion, better known as John Coyne, is one of the masterminds behindBlacklight District, which is doing everything it can to push the EDM sounds inGreeensboro. Hek Yeh also just held impromptu dance-court at RJ Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem, which seems like anodd place to blast some throwback hip-hop grooves and dance jams, but Hek Yehmight be one of the most positive influences in the EDM scene locally, so itwas kept appropriate. One time for that dude doing everything he can to supportthe community. Check out his new CML CTYhats available through his Facebook page and via SquareUp.Com/market/dj-hek-yeh.
