CONTROL Fridays @ The Avalon. Whether you like it or not, you’ve got a crazy story to tell from a night spent there. We think about what music we may be into right now or not anymore, but you better believe if you live in Los Angeles or have been here for a weekend, chances are you have had a wild one at one of the longest standing electronic music weekly events across the globe. After the “blog-house” scene spilled DJs into clubs and venues nationwide, Los Angeles was a beacon for this growing underground buzz. It wasn’t without difficulty for a young Ryan Jaso and Chris White to prove to the already storied venue, Avalon Hollywood, that their new weekly event CONTROL would gain any traction and or keep the crowds coming. “The red-headed step child” as the owners and managers of the club first called it, CONTROL  had to live in the shadow of Avalon’s bigger nights showcasing heavyweights such as Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, and a still thriving live music calendar. But none of that could stand in the way of what was going to happen with a growing music scene. For 5 years now, the “little weekly party that could” has turned into the taste-making, career-launching, riot-starting, life-changing movement that has kept LA one of the premiere places to discover new talent and see the best of the best at the same damn time.

Last Friday, I was able to sit down with one of my favorite dance music artists of all time — living Chicago House legend, Green Velvet. We met him at the Redbury Hotel adjacent to the Avalon in Hollywood, and within seconds of shaking his hand he was cracking jokes, laughing, and evoking an overall sense of good vibes.

We made the short walk over to the venue and downstairs into the green room where I asked Curtis AKA Green Velvet about a handful of topics, including “Skeleton Key,” working with eager young artists, and how his faith makes him a better musician.

Watch above.

Green Velvet is back at the Avalon tomorrow night along with the always groovy Pleasurekraft. Also supporting the House music legend will be LA talent Rick Rude and Craig Williams, with an opening set from Jaceo. We expect a night of great tunes and glowing green mohawks.

Ever since the first time I heard ‘Tarantula,’ I was in love with Pleasurekraft. Their eerie yet very danceable sound is so unique, it can fit into sets of multiple genres. On that note, I’m excited to say that Pleasurekraft will be headlining this week’s CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood along with Deniz Koyu, the Dutchman whose Progressive Electro style has been fully supported by everyone from Fedde Le Grand to Dada Life. Should be a fun one folks!
