Five songs we'd request from DJ Solange Knowles

solangeWe offer some DJ tips for Solange's Saturday set. (Universal Music Group)

By Chris Richards

You know her as a lover of indie rock, a bender of genres and the sister of Beyonce. But did you know Solange Knowles is a spinner of records, too? She's scheduled to DJ Saturday night at The Mansion in Adams Morgan -- one of a gerzillion Howard Homecoming-related events taking place in Washington this weekend.

After falling for her thoughtful cover of Dirty Projectors' "Stillness is the Move" last year, we're curious about the tunes Solange might have loaded up on her Serato.

Here are five we'd request:

1. Sparks, "Tryouts for the Human Race"
2. Rotary Connection, "I Am the Black Gold of the Sun"
3. In Deep, "The Record Keeps Spinning"
4. Can, "Chain Reaction"
5. Grizzly Bear's "Foreground" mashed-up with Brian Eno's "Canon in D Major"
