From a press release:

“Echostage, the famed DC concert venue that delivers A-list artists like Tiesto, Calvin Harris and Lorde to Washingtonians, announced that their newest retro-inspired locale, Soundcheck, will open its doors to the public on August 12 at 1420 K St. NW.

The intimate 4,400 square foot venue, with its honeycomb-tiling and minimalist stage, will be a no-frills nod to the ’80s and ’90s club decades that defined an era. Although the design is old school, the electronics are certainly are not: like Echostage, Soundcheck will house a German-imported d&b audiotechnik Y-series sound system, state-of-the-art music technology that will attract high-caliber artists. Designers aim to mimic the acoustics of a recording studio in a nightclub setting by installing 4,000 square feet of cork hardwood floors and 4-inch-thick soundproof foam in its walls and ceiling.

“With Soundcheck, we’re interested in tapping into the atmosphere of early DC nightlife while still delivering what makes Echostage so popular: quality sound, outstanding artists, and an unparalleled sensory experience,” Soundcheck Managing Partner Antonis Karagounis says.

The nightclub will feature two bars, 14 tables and a dedicated dance floor. The team has installed two larger-than-life LED walls, perfect for displaying company logos for corporate events. Six LED TVs and three LED video projectors can be found throughout the venue. Bottle service tables are designed to look like oversized, modern, acrylic speakers. Over 85 lighting fixtures will illuminate the space with a nightly laser light show, while two jumbo disco balls will hang from the center of the dance floor. Club-goers looking for a more discreet, VIP experience can reserve the purple room, equipped with its own private bar.

To cater to DC’s diverse dance clientele, nightly events will change in theme, ranging from Glow’s signature EDM parties, to latin and hip-hop nights. Wednesday nights are set to feature the sounds of Steez Promo’s “Bass Nation.” Expect thumping bass music and artists like Kennedy Jones, Kayliox, Dirtyphonix and Kill The Noise. Glow’s unmatched credibility and heritage will be leveraged to bring one-of-a-kind experiences from the most popular DJs as well as up-and-coming artists. Glow Thursdays will continue to house both world-renowned and emerging artists in the electronic dance music scene ranging in style from house to trance and more. Confirmed artists for Glow Thursdays include Alvaro, Amine Edge & DANCE, Arty, Audien, Cedric Gervais, Dzeko & Torres, Fehrplay, Kryder, Kyau & Albert, MOTi, Orjan Nilsen, Paris Blohm, Stafford Brothers, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and more. Afterglow will showcase the underground, techno sound on Sunday nights and feature artists such as Alan Fitzpatrick, Carlo Lio, Loco Dice, Mark Knight, Nic Fanciulli, Paco Osuna, Paul Ritch and Pete Tong.”
