Today’s dose of techno comes courtesy of LA’s Charles I, who dropped his Attrition EP today. The two part release is a brash eight and a half minutes of malcontent synthwork and carefully articulated noise that translates into a cohesive thrashing. Pick up both tracks for free below.

It was a pretty easy decision when we collectively agreed to add our LA buds Bixel Boys to the roster of talent on our illustrious Ones to Watch in 2014 list, and they’re certainly making us look good. Coming out of the gates red hot, the B-boys flip UK darling Eliza Doolittle‘s vocals into a pumping club track without sacrificing their unique big-room meets underground sound. Never shy to skate the fine line between cheese and class, they’ve kept their ears to the rising talents across the pond while still managing to appeal to your girlfriend and all of her friends as Eliza’s vocals coast over piano stabs before giving way to an unsuspecting drop that’ll have even the snarkiest of punters catching a vibe. Grab the free download and hail the #freelife.

After transplanting to LA from Australia, the man with long black hair and a penchant for dark techno has been a slave to the studio. Craig’s newest EP dropped this week on fellow Australian label Motorik, and he dialed in two heaters with the underground queen Louisahhh!!! Her vocals pair dangerously well with Craig’s raw power, and with support from the likes of Brodinski and Riva Starr, this release should see him boost up the ranks of upcoming techno producers. You can catch Craig at Dim Mak Studios on September 17th where he’ll be doing a back to back set with label mate Jensen Interceptor.

I made my way through Downtown LA’ s Chinatown and into what appeared to be my own personal, dusty, hipster hell– only to be delighted by a gentle and bemustachioed crowd, Goldenvoice’s usual top notch accommodations, and surprisingly chest-ratting bass.  I ate well, drank well, caught M83, James Blake and Simian Mobile Disco and made it home happy.

Overthrow and Deathface have a thick as blood releationship, literally. The first time I met him in Miami a few years ago, we killed a girl on stage. Since then, he’s branded his own style of demonic bass music, and he was commissioned to do the second chapter of the Lil Death mixtape series. However, instead of an hour of dubstep, Deathface serves up 58 minutes of warehouse techno. If after listening to the mix you feel inclined to lurk into the night, he’ll be playing at Lil Death tonight. More info here.

Miami based creative collective, OVERTHROW, has been not so silently plotting to take on the West Coast with the debut of their Sunday night party called LIL DEATH, which is this Sunday in Downtown LA. After the wicked success of the infamous Black Sunday party in Miami, evil masterminds Alexis Mincolla and Caleb Gauge have scripted the party along the fascination with Le Petite Morte. OVERTHROW mistress Tamara Sky is set to play this weekend, and she has curated the first installment of the LIL DEATH mix series. Perhaps I should have mentioned this earlier, but the party is FREE if you RSVP, and you’re also rewarded with complimentary Jose Cuervo Platino, PBR, and Prometheus Springs (while supplies last).
