Bixel Boys have unveiled the second installment of the ever-sexy mixtape series, The Fall, which will entice your ears all the way until December. Bixel informs us that “these selections are meant for night drives, overcast mornings, windshield wipers, leggings, ankle boots, hoodies, cigarettes, reflecting, and redemption.” Summer is now behind us, daylight is beginning to expire, and it’s time to embrace the cool. Get it. √+
GDD™ and dubFrequency are teaming up once again for an escape to the desert this Friday through Sunday in Palm Springs. With Carmaggedon looming and hours of traffic on the closed 405 freeway inevitable, it was a no-brainer to repeat the amazing getaway we had at the end of July at The Saguaro Hotel. GDD™ DJs (Bones, aRod, Shae B, and Burn Unit), No Shirt | No Shoes DJs (Tropicool, Bixel Boys, SAH, and Junkyard), and our friends Kedd Cook and White on Rice will be putting down the best grooves by the pool all weekend long.
It’s the week we celebrate our independence in America, but more importantly to you dirty dancers – its one of the biggest weeks of electronic music events. Don’t think just because you’re not going to Vegas for an overpriced pool party that you can’t have an epic weekend… this Thursday, we’re kicking things off with a summer-vibed lineup @ VERSUS with DJ sets by Steffi Graf, Bixel Boys, Junkyard, and GDD’s own sun-kissed residents aRod and Tropicool. So Los Angeles, you have plenty time left in your life to overpay for bottle service and wear collared shirts – this holiday weekend you need to keep things local and get your West Side groove on. This event will reach capacity so please RSVP and arrive early to guarantee entry!
Looking for a good pool party in Los Angeles this weekend? We’ve got you covered. Guess is presenting the sexy daytime event, High/Tide, this Sunday at the classy Drai’s in Hollywood, with poolside sets from Treasure Fingers, Chris Kennedy, Shae B, and Bixel Boys. The GDD™ fam will be coming out to drink some bloody Mary’s and get our bronze on, and we’d love you to come join us.
After a hugely successful weekend at Snowball Music Festival, we return with 3 of the acts to bring you a slice of what you may have missed in Colorado. This thursday @ VERSUS, we welcome the Bang Gang wildchild Cassian from Australia, riding the momentum from his ‘Vamos a la Americas’ tour. Also coming in hot off Snowball Fest are the Guns In The Sun DJs and Bixel Boys, and supporting will also be GypsyDiscoCaravan and our very own aRod. Make sure you hurry up and RSVP, this is one is gonna be a hot mess of a good time.
Combining different elements together is what creation is all about. Creating a feeling, mood, vibe, or even flavor is what tickles our senses and keeps us coming back for more. Local tastemakers over at dubFrequency, The Bixel Boys, have just released something extremely special. It’s LookBook that pairs music with imagery and the season at hand. I’ve found myself lost in the pages for a few days now, its quite the aphrodisiac.
Foreword from Bixel: Known for their select brand of mixtapes, LA’s DJ Duo Bixel Boys have released something a little different. The Bixel Boys 2011 Fall / Winter Lookbook. An amalgam of stunning sexy imagery and hand picked songs, the Bixel Boys Fall / Winter look book is a finely curated collection that invites you into the fall and winter seasons. While their mixtapes provide a back drop to our everyday lives, the Lookbook allows us to peer deeper into Bixel brand. Even if you’ve heard these songs before, maybe only some, or maybe none at all; the Lookbook provides a new way to enjoy them. Rather than a blog, the Lookbook will be refreshed seasonally, each time with a new theme and curated crop of songs to either: stream from the Lookbook or play on your iPhone with the downloadable sampler. Enjoy.
We’ve been waiting for this one for a while! This week at VS., we’re bringing on our good friends from the famed No Shirt/No Shoes events for a night of smooth jams and dreamy vibes. Coming off of a series of amazing pool parties at The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles this past summer, the trio of residents known as Tropicool, Bixel Boys, and Surf Ambassador Hendo made Nu Disco and Indie Dance readily available to Angelenos on a consistent basis, and now that summer is over, it’s time to move the boys inside at The Central in Santa Monica. As always, expect some great special guests to make an appearance this week as well.
The event will be FREE until 11PM this week w/ RSVP, so make sure to head over to DANCEiSM.com to get on the list!

Hop on the Surfliner as it cruises through the 7 seas and into fall…
“It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the Bixel Boys, and luckily they make their return just in time for the changing of the season. As the heat subsides and the summery disco sounds fade away, the cool breeze comes in and everything gets a little slower and a little deeper. In preparation, the Bixel Boys bring you The Surfliner, featuring remixed tracks of Kate Bush, Crystal Fighters, Montauk, and more.”

We’d like to thank everyone who came out for the last couple weeks of our VERSUS party downtown @ ICON. Unfortunately, the management was not on the same musically-oriented page as us, and we weren’t happy! We want this weekly party to be the easiest way for you guys to dance dirty on a Thursday night, and that includes location, price, and fun level (duh).
So this week, we bring you a special VERSUS party – underground disco edition @ the (downtown) Belasco Theater Basement. To keep the summer groovin vibes and the dirty disco atmosphere, we bring you a one-off event in one of the coolest locations in Los Angeles. The now LA-based U-TERN will showcase his disc jockey skills and be supported by our good buddies Guns In The Sun, along with our GDD resident chill wave Tropicool and dF’s No Shirt/No Shoes Bixel Boys. Man oh man, are we in for it again.
OPEN BAR: What makes this thursday more attractive? Oh yeah, the OPEN BAR until 11pm doesn’t hurt either. The party starts @ 10, so you oughta’ get there for the power hour to warm up those disco dance moves!
