Hear Ye…all party people of the frozen north: HotDish - that unmistakably Minnesotan hodgepodge of plentiful funky ingredients – is now serving all with a gluttonous appetite. HotDish is both a collaborative of djs (Nate Laurence & J. Matthews) and a Minneapolis-based event crew. HotDish values the diversity of EDM in the Midwest, yet it is our aim to provide a space for – above all else – funky, new-school, and soulful house music in the Twin Cities. HotDish (hosts of the best funky-house parties in the Twin Cities since 2006) showcases talent that is pioneering and unifying – both local and international icons of this genre! HotDish (1ST SATURDAYS @ BLACK) occurs EVERY FIRST SATURDAY of the month at the INFAMOUS First Avenue Nightclub VIP Lounge! Check our “Upcoming Shows” page for details!
The HotDish Mission: to provide a venue for the HotDish sound while fostering the local scene in a spirit of collaboration and unity. Guiding principles make us aware of malicious social structures so we encourage both diversity and philanthropy. We reach out to foster the underground EDM and hip-hop cultures of the Twin Cities to preserve who we are.
Your HotDish hosts include Nate Laurence (a rave-era veteran, intoxicating DJ, and one of the most highly anticipated new talents in the international new-school underground house music scene – on high profile labels such as Spatula City, Guesthouse Music, and Chicago’s Control Recordings) and J Matthews (Host of Funk Yeah! FM on Chicago House FM and Twin Cities staple who showcased his talents at high-profile venues including First Avenue, Quest, and the long-running “Bump” at the Phoenix Landing in Boston, MA.).
