Awesome Tapes returns to once-hometown Los Angeles for the first time since the start of the pandemic. If you haven't seen him before, he's the kind of DJ who puts a smile on your face all night. Mood Hut cofounder CZ Wang—a very hot tip from us—is on closing duties, and local Bianca Lexis is worth seeing open.
Mapamota’s ethos of centering POC, queer, and femme talent is evident in every line-up. This edition of Sou Swap is no different, with footwork legend RP Boo, Anna Morgan’s Caribbean fusions and Club Chai’s Lara Sarkissian.
Multi-talented producer Man Power and his MEMEME crew headline the Halloween edition of Midnight Lovers alongside a special guest, and you know this group is gonna make it special for the spooky weekend. (Disclosure: guest DJ Lottie is an RA staffer.)
Halloween is a perfect holiday for a dark and often brooding (but extremely fun) techno party like Compound. Celebrate five years of LA's impressive mini-festival with a lineup that includes UK industrial techno legend Perc, Berlin's Headless Horseman, Ukraine's Nastia and perhaps most exciting of all, the LA debut of rising star (and Ben Klock affiliate) Stef Mendesidis.
