VERSUS was our humble weekly event @ The Central in Santa Monica, CA over the past 2 years. We’re sad to have it come to an end, but we sent it off proper with a biblical b2b set from Skrillex x Congorock x Crookers x 12th Planet, along with Doorly and our very own Bones. We thank everyone for all the memories, never forget what we’ve built.
The onslaught of bookings carries on in 2013 @ Avalon this Friday with a serious lineup. The Italiano Congorock will be bringing his mammoth sound back to the CONTROL decks, joined by dutch big room phenom Marcel Woods. Supporting the night is newly Ultra-signed Black Boots (collaborative project of Lightknife & Afghan Raiders) making their LA debut, alongside opening and closing sets by Poupon and Sam Hiller respectively. This event will reach capacity early, so please RSVP below and arrive before doors to guarantee entry!

Anticipation for Clockwork‘s new Titan Remix EP has just burst – the italian powerhouse Congorock has just leaked his ‘Safari’ Edit today on the Mad Decent soundcloud, a FREE DOWNLOAD in all its 320 glory. The big room single gets a proper grinding from Congorock and his tribal bass influence, and it shows through on the resulting production. Hurry up and jump on this one, the download is only up until this Sunday, 11/25.
*Grab Clockwork’s full ‘TITAN’ Remix EP, featuring remixes from The PartySquad, Moska, Coyote Kisses, and ‘BBBS’ remix by GTA. HERE
Italian-born, Los Angeles resident, Congorock, has just released the remix pack for his smasher ‘Ivory’ on Ultra Music today, and it’s suited with an all-star cast of producers including Laidback Luke, The Bloody Beetroots, Mumbai Science, and NT89. Pretty darn serious. Each remix is great on its own as well. Laidback Luke’s new rendition is more of an edit, staying true to Rocco’s initial arrangement while deepening and darkening the original with some additional heavy bass. The Bloody Beetroots stay true to their grungy Electro roots, while Mumbai Science and NT89 bring on the Techno in a big way. Stream the whole EP and take a look at Congorock’s North American tour in June after the jump, and make sure to pick up the EP on Beatport pronto! √+Continue Reading

If you are like me, you know that NT89 is HELL OF underrated. Respected on both Turbo and Southern Fried recordings, Nima Tahmasebi has produced some of the best hard house and techno remixes that are in full support by the likes of Crookers, Tiga, Erol Alkan, Laurent Garnier, Diplo, The Bloody Beetroots, Congorock, Shinichi Osawa, Brodinski and Style of Eye.
Just recently, he became part of the PIE artists management family, alongside Mumbai Science, Prince Club, Van Toth and Bareback DJs (just to name a few). We are excited for this addition to PIE artists because as they are also a Los Angeles based management, we will be seeing more of NT89 in our neck of the planet. I can’t say anymore right now, but expect more exciting acquisitions from PIE Artists. For now, grab some of his most recent releases below, including the unmasked ‘Arabesque’ remix that was long waiting to be identified, as well as his VIP remix of Babylon that he finally released to the public after requests were through the roof.
