This extended Thanksgiving weekend brings a stylistically diverse group of electronic artists and producers to the Bayou City. Various genres from artists across the globe are performing starting Wednesday through Sunday. This provides and excellent opportunity to get together with everyone who has come back into town and sweat on the dance floor.

Rezz
11/21 - Revention Music Center
Canadian import, Rezz delivers a Certain Kind of Magic that has a unique sound. The heavy, rolling bass gives way to buzzing, hypnotic samples that leave her followers, known as The Cult of Rezz, happy. Word is she'llbe headling several festivals in 2019 and this would be the time to see her set in a smaller venue.

Dubfire, Kinda Super Disco
11/21 - Rich’s
Josh Dupont and the Kinda Super Disco crew score another internationally renowned DJ: the Iranian-American artist, Dubfire. His trance and techno beats will keep the dance floor and surrounding areas packed through out the night and into the early morning.

Andrew Bayer
11/23 - Spire
Part of the Anjunabeats family, Andrew Bayer blends progressive house and trance on his latest solo album, In My Last Life. The former worship space turned nightclub is a perfect place to have a spiritual encounter while dancing to “Your Eyes” and “End of All Things.”

Yousef, Praia Urbana
11/23 - The Dive
Curator of the 21st Century House Music mixes, Yousef will be visiting from Liverpool, England to drop in at The Dive with the party put on by the Praia Ubana crew as a night show. Expect an eclectic set of international house music with Alex Clavijo and Steven Towers warming up the decks for the Circus Recordings boss.

Cedric Gervais
11/24 - Stereo Live
The No. 1 purveyor of Lana Del Rey remixes, Cedric Gervais is the biggest name visiting Houston over Thanksgiving weekend. The French producer will likely use the time on the stage at Stereo Live to perfect his progressive house mix for the opening of Art Basel in Miami.

Fedde LeGrande
11/24 - Clé Day/Night Club
"Hit the Club" with Fedde Le Grand if you are in the mood for sky touching beats. The club will be slammed packed as Dutchman in charge of the Darklight Sessions will have steam coming out of the front doors of Clé.

Kill Frenzy
11/25 - Stereo Live
Close out the weekend on Stereo Live’s patio, but don't let the chill vibes of Private Label series fool you. With an aggressive moniker like Kill Frenzy, "Believe" this DIRTYBIRD Records artist is going hit the early Sunday evening partygoers with tracks featuring rapid hi hats, deep thuds and danceable melodies.
