To celebrate the last VS of the year (and the end of the world as we know it?), we’re teaming up with our friends at The Well to bring you a SECRET GUEST (Boys Noize Records) all the way from France. Supporting the night will be a special b2b set from our own Troy Kurtz & Bones, along with a birthday performance from Ben Oprstu and sets from SF’s Realboy and Option4. Can you say, techno?
Another awesome SECRET GUEST this week at VS in Santa Monica, and we’re pleased to say that this will be a VS debut. Supporting the mystery man will be Danceism’s Ben Oprstu, Modus, and Islander. As always, trust us on the guest. It’ll be a fun one.
This Thursday, Gotta Dance Dirty and DANCEiSM are proud to celebrate 1 year of VERSUS this week @ The Central in Santa Monica! Throughout 2011 we embarked on a mission to bring cutting-edge EDM artists to the westside, and here we are 1 year later having had the pleasure to host acts ranging from Round Table Knights to to Dillon Francis to Mumbai Science to D.Ramirez. 2012 promises to be a big year for the VS party, and we hope to continue dancing every Thursday night away with all of you.
We’re bringing out the big guns for our first birthday. 2 HUGE secret guests that are absolutely not to be missed. Neither one has ever played VERSUS and they are both well known dance floor slayers! Supporting the night will be the sounds of GDD’s own Burn Unit and our VS residents Ben Oprstu and Bones. This event will reach capacity, so make sure to RSVP and arrive early!
We’ll also be filming and shooting photos all night so be sure to wear your GDD Apparel so we can be sure to get you on the site and in the videos!
This Thursday @ VERSUS we bring you something special. The mysterious Planet Rock, the newest project out of the DANCEiSM camp featuring Ben Oprstu, Dom Corleone, and ASAA, will be celebrating the release of their new ‘LAZRBEAM’ EP this coming up Thursday at VERSUS. Supporting sets include San Francisco’s own RealBoy and Niteppl, Shifty Rhythms/Mad Decent’s The KiD, Danceism’s Team EZY, and an opening set by Frnch Cnnxt.
LAZRBEAM In celebration of the release party, Planet Rock’s new single ‘LAZRBEAM’ has just been released this week, absolutely for FREE! The EP features a newly mastered original, alongside two diverse remixes by gLadiator and The KiD & Korova. If you’ve seen our own BONES perform recently you would have already heard him dropping ‘LAZRBEAM’ in several of his sets! Grab the full EP below, as well as their BIG BOOTY MINI-MIXXX!
It’s a night of up and comers at CONTROL at the Avalon tonight, with 5 acts that are on the brink of bigness: LAZRtag, Kids At The Bar, BetaTraXx, DallasK, and Ben Oprstu. I’ve been waiting for a night like this at CONTROL for a long time, as it reminds me of the early days at the Avalon when CONTROL hosted young, promising artists that have now become big time superstars. Come on out to Hollywood and see these young guns bring the fuego to LA.

I remember when Blatta & Inesha came on to the scene back in 2009. They were dubbed by many at the time as the “next Crookers,” due to their banging Electro style and the fact that they are a duo from Italy. Since then, they’ve had releases on some of the heaviest hitting Electro labels in the game including Dim Mak, Lektroluv, Crux, and Lee Mortimer’s Wearhouse label. Well, Los Angeles, we are bringing the guys to you this week for a massive VS. event on the West Side along with support from DJ Shae B, Ben Oprstu, La Muerte, and Mr. Metronomo.
The event is FREE before 11PM, but you must RSVP at DANCEiSM.com.

This week marked the official start of summer, and what better way to welcome my next mix – dedicated the almighty festival season and of course the infamous 3 month vacation that all you people know and love. I’m sure most of you will be hitting the road to Las Vegas this weekend for the big one, so this is your goto firestarter for the road trip ahead. For all those otherwise, pump this at work, while you’re pre-gaming before going to the Avalon (or our VERSUS party), stuck in not cool traffic, or when the DJ you booked for your ‘glow’ party just ain’t bringin it. Welcome to summer my dirty dancers, get after it.
If you missed the launch party last week @ our new downtown venue ICON, don’t worry because our VERSUS party brings you an incredible lineup this Thursday. GDD, Danceism and IntoTheAM proudly bring you the LA debut of France’s CANBLASTER, along with the drummer from Soulwax known as ONE MAN PARTY, and Potty Mouth/Fool’s Gold local hero TJR. Supporting the headlining trio will be UhOhDisco’s Goj!ra, Danceism’s Ben Oprstu and yours truly, ///BONES ready to break in the brand new venue proper. This night is gonna get massive, so we’ve extended the hours of this week’s party till 3AM.

After 20 straight weeks of epic parties, fantastic DJ sets, and extremely painful Friday mornings, VERSUS takes an enormous step forward…
Tomorrow night marks the grand finale of our VERSUS party at the Central in Santa Monica, capping what has been a phenomenal ride of only the best electronic music on the westside of LA. We couldn’t be happier to be bringing you the Australian dirty duo LIGHT YEAR, as they wrap up their own ‘USA Vacation’ tour. Supporting will be our good friends Gotsú Ongeslis, along with our other westside buddies the Guns In The Sun Deejays. To cap off the night, your very own ///BONES will be closing with a finale that’s gonna ensure your brain will have a dent in it come 2am. We hope to see all of you there in support of the last VERSUS party on the westside – we’re gonna get loose and severely run up our bar tab, so expect one hell of a night. LEZZGO!

This week, we have a real treat for you, as we host the Bang Gang Deejays tour with a special perfomance as their side project for Turbo Records, The Finger Prince.

On top of that, we also welcome Pasternak from Lemonade, all the way from NYC. If that doesn’t make you drop your chalupa then we’ll have you know that Danceism wild child Ben Oprstu will be laying down a set, along with Dub Frequency’s Bixel Boys and your one and only GDD groove-master A.Rod.

Count on it. ¡Vamanos!
