It’s about that time for EDX‘s return to Los Angeles! It’s been a massive year for the Swiss-based house maestro as he’s played major festivals and top nightclubs around the world, in between topping Beatport/Hype Machine charts, throwing his own No Xcuses parties, and crushing his No Xcuses radio show/podcast on a weekly basis. On December 19th, the Swiss-based house maestro is capping off 2015 in the U.S. by making his way back to Southern California for a performance at the famed Sound Nightclub, and he’ll be ready to throw down with an arsenal of new music, including his latest smash, “Revered.” If you’ve seen EDX, you know he always delivers, but if you haven’t, we recommend that you go check him out, especially since this is his last state-side show this year!

Paradise Garage means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but if you were around NYC in the 90’s than those two words take on a profoundly holier meaning. For those who are new, Paradise Garage served as a playground to NYC’s bourgeoning house and disco scene welcoming any and all types of boogie monsters looking to spread love and joy in the now SoHo district of NYC. What now seems like common practice was once pioneered by the legendary dance hall including placing the DJ at the center of the party’s focus, a practice that birthed the funk phenomenon Larry Levan in the flesh.

Emerging as a dominant brand in Los Angeles, Minimal Effort will return this Halloween to create a haven for dance music connoisseurs with no boundaries once again. A certain commonality will exist between those in attendance, those that are performing, and the entities that may or may not be present. Three stages will be curated for your enjoyment and entertainment and hosted by some of the most extraordinary brands in dance music. A plethora of artists will provide sounds for your enjoyment, some of which will be known to many and some which might be unknown to all. Taking place at the magnificent Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, this is not going to be your ordinary Halloween event. For nearly 30 years, Belasco Theater was resurrected as a church and rumor has it that phantom footsteps were heard by members of the congregation coming from the stage as well as odd rustling sounds from back stage when the area was completely empty. A former organist tried to explain these sounds and believed that people actually heard a very elderly lady who lived under the stage who was “inherited” from the previous church. Occasional sightings of this woman eventually diminished and she did as well. Her true identity was never known and her spirit may still linger until this day. The sounds you hear might not be coming from the speakers, the essence you feel might not be from within, the spirit you embrace might not be your own. Get ready for the most magnificent and extravagant Minimal Effort yet and proceed with caution.
