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.

Hey GDD™ nation. Just wanted to update you all on our event this Friday as Brazzabelle has been replaced with Fake Rich’s Tealong. On top of that, I was lucky enough to have a fast five questions with Amir Derakh of Circuit Freq today, and he also threw us over a brand new, exclusive re-edit of his most recent single, ‘The Filth‘. Check it out.
Amir Derakh: Haha OK! My usual weapon of choice is Grey Goose on the rocks with Soda Water and lots of Limes.
gdd: So you used to be in the very successful band, Orgy, going platinum with the huge album ‘Candyass’ back in the late 90s. What made you leave that behind to focus more on your new project Circuit Freq?
I’ve also been a working DJ for 15 years and with the surge of electronic music that started a few years back I decided to get back in the game. That’s how Circuit Freq came about. Fu (the other half of CF) and I fucking love club music and remixing so we decided to just do it after my friend Joel (Deadmau5) suggested it. Simultaneously we started our label Circuit Freq Records which releases our own music as well as other artists. Our latest release is a “Best Of” compilation with remixes by the likes of Zodiac Cartel, Electrixx, Stupid Fresh & Felix Cartal included. LINK to label.
AD: No, but electronic music is gaining ground very quickly! No way to know how big it will get or when it is going to peak (no pun intended haha) but its definitely heading there fast. I’m VERY excited that its happening now! As this is my favorite genre of music…
gdd: Where do you see Circuit Freq going? I saw on your Facebook that you are planning on getting a live performance together. What will this include?
gdd: What should we expect from your set this Friday? Will it get the kiddos dancing dirty?
I know you’ve all been waiting for this one. This Friday will be a night of absolute carnage, with the sounds of the dubstep coming at you full force through the Avalon’s massive Funktion-One sound system. LA’s own 12th Planet will take the stage before he gives way to the one, the only RUSKO. You’d be a silly sally not to be there. We’ll have ///BONES, sweetFA, and Tre on hand in the GDD™ room to assist your bass deficiency as well.
