VERSUS was our humble weekly event @ The Central in Santa Monica, CA over the past 2 years. We’re sad to have it come to an end, but we sent it off proper with a biblical b2b set from Skrillex x Congorock x Crookers x 12th Planet, along with Doorly and our very own Bones. We thank everyone for all the memories, never forget what we’ve built.
To celebrate the last VS of the year (and the end of the world as we know it?), we’re teaming up with our friends at The Well to bring you a SECRET GUEST (Boys Noize Records) all the way from France. Supporting the night will be a special b2b set from our own Troy Kurtz & Bones, along with a birthday performance from Ben Oprstu and sets from SF’s Realboy and Option4. Can you say, techno?
We kick off December w/ a special and very intimate edition of VERSUS… The NO SHIRT x NO SHOES DJsTropicool & Bixel Boys will be setting the vibe all night, along with sets by Justin Cornwall and Mazkarate… Fireplace on the dancefloor. Secret DJ booth. Speakeasy vibes. Funky tunes. Radical visuals. Let’s boogie woogie.
After a week off due to tryptophan overdoses, VERSUS returns this Thursday with UK native Sharooz – providing us a rare intimate performance before he heads back across the pond. Supporting the night, the hard hitting Ecto Cooler will be celebrating his ‘Touch The Sky’ EP release party, along with DJ sets from Sam Hiller, Don Winsley, and Master Wayne. It’s almost the end of 2012, so don’t miss out on one of our last!
This Thursday, EDM’s jack of all trades Whiskey Pete will be hosting his newly founded Switchblade Records launch party @ VERSUS – featuring DJ sets from big guns Will Bailey, Reid Speed and even a special guest. Opening the night will be Play Me Records prodigy Cykosis. Get ready to get live and loud.
YEW! We’ve invited our good friends at Guns In The Sun to takeover VERSUS this week! To celebrate such an occasion, they’ve rounded up some of their favorite selectors to join them on the decks – including Warchild, His Boy Elroy (aka Tom Gunzz), and Gene’s Liquor. And of course, prepare yourself for a special 2 hour long Guns In The Sun DJs set. They have recommended: “stretching & lotion & stretching & lotion.”
