Engulfing his rapidly skipping programmed beats in an atmospheric haze, D.C.’s DJ Slant generates spacy mixes that show more of an affinity with ambient-textured dance-club stylings than with the hiphop and dancehall funkiness that his jungle-labeled music is often associated with. Slant, who recently began spinning wax every Monday at Bar Nun, will, along with London DJ Trace, Philly’s Karl K. & M.C. Dub 2, and locals the Deep Dish Boys, be bringing high-bpm “jungle under da starz” to the Capitol Ballroom’s new outdoor deck. They’re all part of the Buzz crew’s latest all-night party, “Sting,” with Dubtribe as well as a number of techno DJs from 10 p.m.-9 a.m. at the Capitol Ballroom, 1015 Half St. SE. $7-9. (202) 828-1984. (Steve Kiviat)
