On Saturday, March 16th, the Portland-based electronica artist, Emancipator, graced Los Angeles with his presence at The Do LaB’s event held at the El Rey Theatre.

Find out exactly how it all went down after the jump…

2013 has only just begun and Salva is already having a hell of a year. After announcing his primetime slot on BBC Radio 1′s “In New DJs We Trust” (along with the wholly deserving Brodinski), running train on the blogs by dropping a collab with Brenmar “Let Me Bang” and an early preview of “Drop That B”, finishing a quick US tour, and laying down a rowdy set to a massive post-Grammy’s crowd last night at Drai’s, he’s dropping his first EP of the year Odd Furniture… and doing it early.

Ever since Feed Me announced his new stage production back in 2011 I have been itching to see him live. I’ve had the opportunity many times, but every time he was in town it was just my luck that he hadn’t brought the Teeth with him. Dominating the stage with a menacing grin and evil slits for eyes, his twist on the traditional LED wall is a sight to behold. Add that to his crazy awesome production and you’ve got one hell of a show. Find out what went down at his Webster Hall double header last week after the jump!

Ever since the Marquee Nightclub reopened in New York last month, people have been bugging me to go. Literally everyone…it’s kind of ridiculous how many people want me to review this place. Aside from other obligations, I don’t really have a reason for not going, except for the fact that it’s not really my scene and expensively-clad, drunk, assholes are annoying. I also always choose music over venue, so that’s just me. But, I finally decided to check the place out last Saturday while Gareth Emery was in town to perform. Find out what went down below…

Last week we sat down with Thomas Gold before his sold-out show at Roseland Ballroom. This show marked the end of his American Fanfare tour, and he definitely brought out all the stops. A ridiculous amount of lazers, a full drumline plus trumpeters playing the fanfare, sexy marching band clad dancers and his rockin’ tunes. Check out the interview below and find out what what you missed, why Thomas loves NYC and all the crazy things that happened on his tour!

2013 is without a doubt Trouble & Bass’ year. The Brooklyn-based label and DJ collective has so many upcoming releases and is making so many big moves that I had to chat with Luca Venezia of Drop The Lime fame and founder of the dark creative collective to make sure I had everything straight. And after witnessing the face melting awesomeness at their BASS CLASH event with Mixpak a few weeks ago, I’ve gotta say that these dark Dons are leaders in their field and definitely ones to watch.
