THE RECOMMENDER – NUMBER 6

Welcome back.

Got another theme-based Recommender for Number 6. I’m going to concentrate on the awesomely-brilliant Los Anegeles scene. It’s breathtakingly huge and ram-jammed with DJ’s, clubs, photgraphers and labels so fucking cool that its icy breeze stretches around the world. The city is known for its beach life, trend-setting scenesters and sunny dispositions, so it makes for a great proving ground for the city’s young crowd to bathe in.

I should begin by stating that with all the DJ’s I’m rolling on about in this post, all roads seem to lead back to a collection of hipsters, often found around CINESPACE, a cinema/lounge/club in Hollywood. To give you an idea of the type of people that crop up on it’s radar here’s a shortlist:

Steve Aoki (Dim Mak Records Boss and DJ)
Cobrasnake Crew  (Hipster Profilers including; Rony Alwins & Mark Hunter -Photographers)
Sarah Morrison (Famous Youtube scenester)
Kid Paparazzi (Another photographer of beautiful people)
DJs, including: Busy P, Dan Oh, Gina Turner, La Castle Vania, Crookers amongst many others…

OK OK OK, back to THE RECOMMENDER – NUMBER 6.

First up this week, a DJ duo well known at Cinespace, LA RIOTS. They can rip up the dancefloor like a West coast earthquake! Signed up to Fools Gold records, they have been blasting out the finest electro remixes for the likes of Justice, Scanners and Hearts Revolution, and they’re as good as anyone’s. I list below their mix of ‘Can’t Believe A Single Word’ for your listening stimulation…

Moving on, the next crew I wanna blow up are ROYAL RUMBLE, who are also firmly welded to the Cinespace scene regularly popping up around LA playing at their touring event night, Hush Hush, where they bill alongside the likes of Skeet Skeet, Modular records DJs and Classixx (see below…) amongst many others. They are a 3-piece consisting of; Dan, Kyle and Russ, spinning their bouncing electro favourites for all to shake to. I list their remix of the Soulwax tune, ‘Miserable Girl’, below because its so freaking ace! Enjoy.

Finally, for this longer than normal post, I come to the last of the California-linked geniuses, a two-piece known as CLASSIXX. Formerly known as The Young Americans until a legal situation put an end to it, this pair are found on many of the Hush Hush parties thrown in the LA area. I cannot get enough of their brilliant mixes and bubbling electro sound. I list below their tune Dial One.

So you now have no excuses – book up your flight to LA now! What a scene, what a collection of brilliant DJ’s and its all in the sunshine. Sounds like perfection. Hope you enjoyed this themed post. I’ll be back with another one real soon, so keep coming back and I promise to love you forever…

    Yeah man, right on. Funny, I just threw up a freshly minted LA Riots set last night – LA is indeed where it’s at. Can’t wait for you to post up the NYC scene. Oh, and I’m down for the blog roll. Vice versa?

    Peace,
