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.

The eve of revolution is upon us… the Los Angeles mystery that is Whiiite has been cast upon the blogosphere in the form of the first chapter to his saga – a graphic novel telling the tale of how Whiiite came to be, who he was, and maybe, what his purpose will be for? We’ll have to watch (above) and see what happens…

Our neighboring San Diego friends known as Ese’ & Zain are back on the production line this year, firing off two new originals. “UNO” is a stampede of minimal techno – putting forth a barrage of drums that only tease in howling leads that vanish back into the bassline. “NADA” is the grittier of the two, pushing an enormous kick behind a sinister lead that literally chomps the siren atop its play. DIG IN.

LOS ANGELES:
Don’t miss Ese’ & Zain this Friday @ CONTROL, closing out the GDD lounge from 1am-2am!

To kick off the weekend and his performance tonight @ CONTROL, the LA native FYOR (formerly NO BODY) is giving away his youtube inspired new original It’s A Fyor. Sampling the infamous “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That” video, this one rings in as a solid crowd pleaser fit for the big room set. But make no mistake – despite the parody, this track goes from zero to main stage with a fat crunching bassline and howling lead. Grab it below for FREE, and catch FYOR tonight supporting Crookers, GTA and Valentino Khan (along with our own Burn Unit too) @ Avalon!

This Friday, CONTROL welcomes back the tape-headed big room duo Cazzette to the decks, riding their EJECT Tour to celebrate their recent full album release.
