Tonight, some of our favorite women in dance music will be taking the reins at Exchange in Downtown Los Angeles — Magda and Blond:ish.

Electropop babe/disco queen Little Boots is taking a ride on the deep house train and who better to co-conduct than Maya Jane Coles and James Ford (of Simian Mobile Disco)?
