It’s a bleak, dystopian future--refugees are part soldier & part scavengers. With washed out tones and broad, sweeping shots, this video is strikingly aesthetic. The gritty, churning nature of this song is echoed by the conflict between the militias in this futuristic wasteland, a conflict which is eventually solved with a light saber duel (of course). ...
"Hmm. A Wednesday night...how strange," I thought to myself. But then again, this is Shpongle we are talking about. Of course it would be strange. If you think you “get weird”, I can assure you that Shpongle gets weirder. And after further consideration, it would be nice if more of my Wednesdays were weirder. This evening, Simon Posford (aka...
There are few places I’d rather be on a Saturday evening than with The Do Lab at King King Hollywood. As we navigated to King King’s alleyway entrance with familiar ease, we smiled at the crowd gathered around the entrance smoking. Follow the glowing blue hallway down towards the music, which gets orders of magnitude more powerful...
“To get 1,000 miles from the Earth, a rocket would need this much power” is the first line we hear on Skrillex’s new album Recess. It’s a premonition, if nothing else. This album is absolutely electrifying from beginning to end, clearly exhibiting enough power to literally propel a rocket ship into space. Taking fans/the internet/the world...
I think that I’ve dreamed this night before. From the moment it began, this evening was so close to my soul -— I can’t think of another way to put it. Rarely have I experienced the magic of a thousand strangers singing “everything’s gonna be alright” in perfect unison. I’m not a religious person, but you better believe I...
With “Sea of Voices”, Porter Robinson has made a glorious departure from his incessant club anthems of yesteryear. Light and airy from the start, this track is more than atmospheric —- it is ethereal. Closed-minded, kandi-wearing dubsteppers will complain that Robinson has abandoned his style completely. Au contraire! Robinson is just now settling into his...
Comfortably removed from the alleged “glamour” of Hollywood, The Satellite is a humble venue set unobtrusively on the east side of town. Forever a mecca for LA’s most hip and down-to-earth citizens, the neighborhood of Silverlake was the perfect backdrop for electro-rock duo Boombox to bring their new studio album Filling in the Color to Angeleno ears for...
The anticipation of festival season is in full swing and this morning, HARD SUMMER gave thirsty fans some new info to salivate over. Along with announcing that the festival will be held August 2nd & 3rd (which is a bit later than normal), the promoters revealed that it will be relocating to Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, an urban...
After months of speculation and anticipation, the night had finally arrived. Hundreds of Schoolboy Q’s most loyal fans huddled patiently around the small stage at LA’s Sonos Studio for the very first taste of the unheard tracks off his new album Oxymoron. Having waited in line earlier in the day to have a chance at pre-ordering the...
On any given Saturday evening, LA’s famed Sunset Strip is littered with all varieties of young, beautiful people hunting a good time. From the girls in tiny dresses and enormous heels trying to talk their way into fancy penthouse hotel bars to rambunctious troublemakers taking their turns riding the bull at Saddle Ranch, there is much fun to...
As Mayer Hawthorne settles into the sound of his third album, Where Does This Door Go, he has made a departure from the bitter-yet-comical breakup tone of yesteryears and turned instead towards coming-of-age storytelling that sacrifices none of his signature style. Equal parts nerdy and suave, this Ann Arbor-native has been charming us with his witty brand of...
There is no denying that The Crystal Method is one of the most enduring forces in electronic music. For over 20 years, Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland have been creating some of the best dance anthems the industry has ever seen. With solid foundations in hip-hop, pop and soul influencing their signature style of producing, this duo...
It’s getting close to that time of year again —- beautiful, sun kissed masses of eager young people congregate in Indio, CA to see “omg like their favorite band ever”. Though it’s evident that a growing percentage of Coachella festival-goers are only there to see and be seen, there is still a hugely loyal base of fans that...
LA-based merrymakers The Do Lab joined forces with Gem and Jam Festival to bring an eclectic night of music to King King Hollywood to celebrate the festival’s eighth year. Featuring artists with something unquantifiable and ever evolving, this night was a colorful exploration of electronic music in every form. The Do Lab always attracts a beautiful, conscientious crowd...
Though Paper Diamond (aka Alex B) has been a mainstay in the electronic music scene for years, his talent and entity continues to develop each year. Fiercely creative and tirelessly dedicated, Alex B has had his hand in many endeavors throughout the years including but not limited to: co-founding Elm & Oak, a multi-faceted record label/design studio based...
In just under two years, We Are Massiv. has grown into one of the most well-represented lifestyle brands in the US. Championed by artists around the world, MASSIV clothing features bold, fresh design that is built on the power of a positive message. We were fortunate enough to join MASSIV when they brought some of LA’s favorite hometown kids...
It was the summer of 2008 that I first heard Rusko’s remix of “Pro Nails”. To say that it changed my life would prove to be an understatement. It was the first sampling of this heavy new form of electronic music called “dubstep” that would sweep the nation in the years to follow. It was rambunctious...
I like to think of The Do Lab crew as Southern California’s very own "merry band of pranksters"-- progressive, vibrant, artistic and playful. Best known for curating Lightning in a Bottle and Coachella’s inhibition-free, self-titled stage, this Los Angeles-based group of “event creators” wrangles the best glitch, grime, and trip-hop from all over this beautiful country and brings...
There is nothing quite like a Friday night in Hollywood. Multitudes of beautiful people ready to shake off the stress of the week in some of the most extravagant nightclubs in the country, a title earned not because by physical size but rather production value and clientele. Create Nightclub sits high on this list, hosting some of...
Sitting at the bottom of an office building in the middle of Koreatown, The Wiltern is one of LA’s most unique venues. Normally you see fans milling about on the corner of Wilshire and Western, smoking cigarettes, loitering in general, etc. Not tonight — not even in the lobby or at the bars -- everybody was inside...
Last Tuesday night, several hundred of LA’s most fashionable gathered to celebrate the union of art, music and fashion at Project Ethos LA Fashion Week presented by Scion. The event revolved around two fashion shows that featured designers from all over the world. The shows began with a dance piece choreographed by Michael Silas, who is known...
They’ve been on tour for almost two months now, and it’s high time that these rowdy soldiers of electro-pop bring their delicious funk westward. Starting tonight, Cherub will be spreading shenanigans from La Jolla, CA to Bellingham, WA with seven raucous stops in between. The tour will wrap up with a sweep through the Rocky Mountains, including...
Rarely have I strut down Wilshire Blvd with as much swagger as I did on that Saturday night. Why you ask? I was donned head-to-toe in a Koala onesie ready to get down with The Polish Ambassador at the third stop on his onesie-themed tour. On my right: a pink bunny with weird chest fur. ...
The Roxy sits right in the heart of LA's famed Sunset strip among landmarks such as The Viper Room and Whiskey A Go Go. Prominent in the LA music scene since the early 1970's, this 500-person club was the most intimate venue I've ever seen Boombox in. It is a rare treat when this duo rolls into...
Rarely has the world of EDM witnessed a group skyrocket to fame as fast as Krewella. The rambunctious trio consists of badass singer/songwriter sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousef and producer Kris “Rain Man” Trindl. With such a unique, energetic sound there is truly no way the world won't love this Chicago-based group. Since the release of their...
Nestled away in LA’s iconic Griffith Park is a beautifully-lit, tree-lined amphitheater known as The Greek. It was an unlikely, though definitely not unwelcome choice for Thievery Corporation’s only night in Los Angeles. With the beautiful voice of Skye Edwards soaring above the Godfrey Brothers (aka Morcheeba) orchestrated an intricate, groovy set that welcomed everyone to the evening with...
Though the venue was far from packed Thursday, LA’s famed El Rey Theatre was absolutely bursting at the seams with pure joy. The night began with the heavenly sound of Seryn, a 6-piece band hailing from Denton, TX. The way they blend their vast array of instruments and their soaring harmonies was refreshing and dynamic in a...
When I first heard the remix of Kanye West's “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” by Grant Kwiecinski, otherwise known as GRiZ, I knew this kid was on to something. I showed anybody and everybody this brand new musical revelation I had found. And now, only two short years later, it comes as no surprise to me (or anybody...
This fall, one of our favorite duos of trip-hop and live dubstep pioneers take their improvisational excellence on the road for a wide-reaching tour that include stops in 27 cities around the United States. EOTO (Michael Travis and Jason Hann of String Cheese Incident) bring a new electronic adventure to the stage every evening with their strict standard...
