I was just thinking the other week, “I really hope that we can get another massive dubstep night going at CONTROL soon,” and fortunately my wish was granted as the don of LA dubstep, 12th Planet, will be headlining this Friday alongside a DJ set by NASA and a rare West Coast performance by Brooklyn producer Kingdom, who has just released a new EP on Night Slugs titled That Mystic. All you bassheads better be in attendance.

If you guys have been keeping up on the sexy sounds of Scottish mood-maker, GRUM, for the past couple months, you would know about his highly acclaimed album, Heartbeats, that was released on Ultra and d:vision Records earlier this summer. Each track on the album is a winner, and after doing our show with GRUM along with The Twelves in the Spring, I vowed to never miss a set of his in LA. Alongside the Scot will be the Brazilian electro duo, Felguk, as well as a bangin’ set from DJ Neoteric.
THREE HEADLINERS! That’s right Los Angeles electronic lovers, this Friday the lovely people at CONTROL will be providing you with a trio of talent consisting of DMC Turntablist Champion and CONTROL frequenter DJ Klever, the multi-talented Ottawan duo Jokers of the Scene, and a much anticipated live performance by the energetic Icelandic dance group, Steed Lord. This is definitely a big one that you won’t want to miss.
If you haven’t noticed, the month of July has been full of big time breaks at CONTROL. This week we’ll be keepin’ the streak going with a YUGE lineup featuring the London duo Plump DJs as well as One Man Party, better known to most of you as the drummer to Belgian superband, Soulwax.
British breakbeat boys, Freestylers, have been kickin’ down doors since the mid-90′s with their creative collaborations and Prodigy-like sound, and this Friday they will be breakbeatin’ the bejesus out of the main room at the Avalon in Hollywood. Support will be provided by Simma Records frontman Will Bailey as well as GDD™ friendlies Breakdown and Mr. White. Come show us your best shuffle.
BLAU! Hope all of you kids had a good time this weekend out at EDC I know that much of the GDD crew did. It was awesome to meet so many of you that read our posts and support what we do and we really appreciate all the love. So now you LA people have 3 more days of recovery before the next massive show at the Avalon. The big time breakbeat enthusiasts known as Stanton Warriors will be making a CONTROL debut this Friday along with the bass heavy duo from DC known as Nadastrom. Neither of these acts were in town last weekend so get some fresh sets into your electronic veins.

Los Angeles! The Electric Daisy Carnival is 2 days away and I’m sure you are all as stoked as I am. I hope you’ve all put together your best tight n’ bright outfits and stocked up on lazers and glowsticks because this Friday and Saturday are going to be big ones. You might think that CONTROL would take a night off on this magnificent Friday, but then you would be incorrect. This week CONTROL will be going super late night with Villains headlining supported by ///BONES, Brazzabelle, Mr. White, and Hi-Deaf. So after you walk out of the Coliseum at 2am with ringing in your ears and rave muck on your shoes, hop in a cab and cruise over to the Avalon to keep the music going. Set times will be as follows:
+1:00-2:00 Mr. White
+3:30-??? ///BONES (let’s do it biggggg all you late night weirdos!)
So this is one of the shows that I’ve been looking forward to the most this month as this will be the first time seeing either of the headliners. I remember when I heard my roommate play Starkillers‘ dancefloor smasher ‘Bitch Ass Trick’ for the first time last summer, and ever since then I’ve been destined to see this guy play out. On top of that, we have the Dutch duo Bingo Players coming to drop some serious housey sound Friday night in Hollywood.
-21+ $10 before 11PM / $15 before 12AM
-18+ $15 before 11PM / $20 before 12AM
There is a special benefit at the Avalon this Friday to prevent deforestation in the Amazon jungle in South America, and who else would be better to throw down for saving some trees than the legendary PAUL OAKENFOLD? For those of you that just started listening to electronic music yesterday, Paul has been a visionary for the scene for over 20 years and continues to blast people away with his hair-raising, skin-tingling sets from Vegas to Ibiza every year. I commend the people of the Amazon Foundation for their efforts and helping put all of this together, so please come out and support because all proceeds from the night will be donated to purchasing land that is in danger of deforestation and will be given to local native tribes for preservation.
