Los Angeles stand up! A handful of the best and brightest young artists in electronic music are coming together for an InDeep event on January 29th at Sound Nightclub. The musical stylings of Hotel Garuda, SNBRN, Dr. Fresch, Matt Dimona, Rambo V, and homegrown GDD OG’s The Interns will be setting the vibe for the evening. It will be a night full of groove-driven house and future sounds, so you’re not going to want to miss it. Grab tickets here, and read on to see what you can expect from the talent that night!
It’s your favorite time of the year, yet again– 2015 celebrations start in about 24 hours and you have no clue how you’ll be ringing it in.
This is what you read GDD™ for. I’d say Let’s Party NYE. Set in the gorgeous and epic (and Legendary) Park Plaza Hotel, you have one last chance to join me and a few of my closest friends for live sets by Blood Orange and Classixx, as well as DJ sets by GDD™ favorites (Thee) Mike B, Yacht, and yes, Blake Anderson from Workaholics. Make no mistake, this is the only celebrity DJ set I will endorse for 2015. Hopefully ever.
I rang up the organizers for #LetsPartyNYE to congratulate them on having a pretty cool name, and in doing so was able to arrange a 10% discount code for the GDD™ Extended Fam as a little holiday gift to us all. What’s more, they indulged, is that this sexy, three-stage soirée goes until 3AM, and each ticket comes with open bar. Easy, dear readers, easy…
Promocode GDDNYE gets you 10% and I look forward to seeing you workin’ that floor tomorrow night.

With a brand new home at Pomona’s sprawling Fairplex venue, Gary Richards and the rest of the HARD crew were primed and ready to blow minds this Halloween weekend. With a handful of dance music events clouding the festival-goers view, they were sure to enlist a remarkable lineup. Names such as ZHU, Diplo, a B2B from Eric Prydz and Deadmau5, and nearly the entire Dirtybird label drew in massive crowds each day, and yet again proved why HARD lies atop the festival totem.
If you’re at all aware of the Dirtybird crew (you should be), you’re more than likely aware of the various Dirtybird BBQ events they have been throwing over the past months. These shows have done wonders in combining the friendly atmosphere and bouncing bass the label has become so known for. Brooklyn, Detroit, Toronto, San Francisco, and now Los Angeles for HARD Day Of The Dead where they will be taking over an entire stage. Full preview after the jump!
Don’t call it a Day Of The Dead Afterparty but the gang’s all there! Fresh off their festival sets at the Fairplex this weekend, Booka Shade and Galantis are co-headlining a post festivus show at The Mayan the following Monday. Galantis burst onto the scene after their gigantic Coachella set and have been releasing hit after hit ever since. Booka is up there with the all time festival greats, known for their action packed live sets and other worldly DJ sets, it’s safe to say the combination of the two will make for a memorable evening. To top the show off, get there early for opening vibes courtesy of The Interns who’s debut mixtape proved that even with their day jobs, they’ve still got soul! Buy tickets HERE.
After becoming the most talked about party in Los Angeles, AC Slater‘s NIGHT BASS movement set out on a 12 dates in 12 days tour with bass house heavyweights Jack Beats, Hannah Wants, Kry Wolf and the man himself. The tour was a success in every city they invaded, but something special was planned for its LA date this past Friday, October 10th. AC Slater teamed up with HARD to bring together one massive event in the warehouse district of downtown Los Angeles, where the infamous Lot 613 was set to play home to the festivities. With the help of Gary Richards and the HARD team, NIGHT BASS quickly became the hype of the weekend and sold out before the night even started.

Room 1 featured the tour lineup, along with NIGHT BASS residents BONES & Petey Clicks. They got things started quickly, as the room filled up and packed out within the first hour. The much anticipated Hannah Wants came after with a huge set, followed by the chief AC Slater bringing it heavy and Jack Beats keeping the energy so alive it was literally spilling out of the room. Capping off the night was a secret set from Kry Wolf, who let his jackin vibes speak for themselves as the night went into the early morning.
Along with the tour lineup, AC brought in friends to take care of room 2: Anna Lunoe, Treasure Fingers, Amtrac, Light Year and Jen Lasher to the rescue. Room 2 was equally slammed, a wider room layout but just as crazy as it’s heavier neighbor. Only in LA can so many incredible artists happen to be in the same town on multiple tour schedules that culminate to one massive experience. The hype was so real that other big names in dance music couldn’t stay away. The likes of Boys Noize, Nadastrom, Kaskade, GTA, Destructo, Jauz, Brazzabelle, and even Valentino Khan‘s mustache we’re all in attendance.
The NIGHT BASS movement proved that it’s hear to stay, and its home is in Los Angeles. The tour dominated its 12 show routing across the US, and looks forward to continuing its monthly series here in LA along with new tours and festival stages in the works… be on the lookout for live set recordings from the whole night and more info on upcoming events!
Full disclosure: Simian Mobile Disco might be my favorite band. Who can really ever say?
I can say, however, that their live show included moments of sheer elation matched by dizzying confusion. How these two I’ve seen and heard so many times could produce an array of sounds so diverse and surprising is beyond my humble ears. And I’ve heard some things in my day. We were recently treated to the full-spectrum experience one night in Los Angeles: electronic soundscape meets very respectful krautrock turns all-out, churning analog techno filth.
The combined forces of Magnetic Magazine, 6am Group, Pulse Radio, Music Is 4 Lovers, and Underrated Property have set forth a stellar Fall lineup for their weekly party in Hollywood – Clinic Wednesdays. Tonight is no exception, as they welcome the “Mr. Nice Guy” Miami house gangster Jesse Perez. Supporting the night are local legends January Black and our very own BONES. Hollywood is gonna get hot and heavy tonight, don’t miss out!
Los Angeles! Tomorrow night, September 25th, our friends at Sound Nightclub and Dim Mak present the G-Mafia Records takeover featuring some of the label’s finest artists from Sao Palo, Brazil – Doozie, Malik Mustache, and Ricardo Bernardi. Known for their eclectic sets including Deep, Tech, G-House, and more, the G-Mafia squad is ready to showcase their distinctive sound that has brought them overseas for you to discover and enjoy. With local support from Gallagher and Overjoy to top it off, there will be excellent music all night, so we recommend getting there early. Enter to win one of TWO pairs of tickets in the Punchtab below, and enjoy a free download from Doozie to help get you in the vibe.
