Rising from the ashes of his former alias The KiD – Kyle De Penna aka Neo Fresco has debuted his new moniker with a 4-track self-titled EP, yours for the price of… well, whatever you want. Whether you can donate or just support the Mad Decent young gun, the Neo Fresco EP is yours for the taking. The release features sharper takes on the “trap” music craze, as well as the hypnotic techno driven ‘Red Pyramid’ (my personal favorite). On top of that, it also includes a previously unreleased VIP from former collab with Korova. All good things people, support our boy Neo Fresco and pick this one up.
We’ve teamed up with the good people of Collaborative Media once again this Saturday @ Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa.

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.
If there is one thing we love to do @ GDD, it’s help the up-and-comers get a chance to showcase their fresh faced production to all of you dirty dancers and the EDM scene. Some of our good buddies – The KiD and Korova – from the LA blog Shifty Rhythms have poured heart and soul into compiling their breakthrough EP, The Red Panda Chronicles Part 1. Derived from personal experiences (including working directly for Mad Decent) and a culmination of their styles, this EP embodies influences from everything in electronic music today. Lucky for you, we get an exclusive breakdown of each track and the entire compilation, all being offered up for FREE. Here’s what they have to say about it:
Red Panda Chronicles Part I is the first of an indefinite number of our EP releases… citing influences including everything from tribal tech, to moombahton, to global groove, Red Panda Chronicles is a compilation of 6 tracks made for moving… in the club, in the car, in your bedroom.The title is not so much a reference to anything contained within the EP, as much as the most appropriate collaborative image of our art.We embody the Red Panda, and the Red Panda embodies us. So Get Shifty. Whenever. Wherever.
Another week, and another VS. party at The Central in Santa Monica. You’ll all be happy to know that we are making this week FREE with RSVP at DANCEiSM.com again with sets by two secret guests as well as opening performances by ///BONES, Tre, and The Kid.
