Everyone have a good holiday? Hopefully all you guys and gals got everything your little hearts desired, including some spending cash for the new GDD™ apparel! Anyway, before everyone takes off again next weekend for New Year’s Eve, we’ll be having a quaint little holiday event at The Central in Santa Monica. Friends from Danceism and Newestra.com will be taking care of the tunes in the front room and who knows, maybe we’ll even bring some new GDD™ merch to gift away if we’re in the giving spirit.
As we draw near the end of 2011, we continue our VERSUS reign with an onslaught this week of nothing but TROUBLE & BASS. Thursday night we welcome Los Angeles resident Samo Sound Boy, the Trouble & Bass young gun whos made his imprint well known on the west coast for the Brooklyn-based bad man crew. Supporting the night will also be the LA division of Nightfreq, ARSNL & Ultra Cat. Opening and closing sets will be conducted by DJ SRSLY and OBE-1, respectively. If you need some boom boom in this brisk December, you don’t wanna miss out on this brigade.
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!
The weather in LA might be getting cold, but you better believe the VERSUS party keeps getting HOT. This week, we’re proud to welcome London Dungeon all the way from Denver, Colorado.

Also gracing the decks will be the OC-based wizard Kedd Cook, rising phenoms Market Price, and local heroes The KiD (Mad Decent, Shifty Rhythms) and Divine Elite. I can’t express the variety of great music thats gonna be heard this Thursday, you’re honestly are gonna have to come and witness for yourself. Things are gonna get real serious.

This week at VERSUS we welcome back electro-rock brigade American Royalty, fresh off a chain of shows nationwide including a massive performance @ the OC Pacific Festival.

Joining support will be Dance Right resident HOFF (aka Mobroder), Evanomics (formerly Robot Love), OC live duo FifiNasty, and DJ Cordova. Gonna be a hot one kids, so make sure you come early and get those $5 Redbull vodkas in your blood because we’re gonna get live and loud.
We’re back to back this week with another double headliner Thursday at VERSUS.
