Dirty Epic and Synthetik Minds host the first-ever (and long overdue!) Perc Trax showcase in LA, featuring the spiky techno of the man himself alongside Manni Dee's lithe and lethal selections, rounded off by homegrown Perc Trax affiliate EAS.
Some of the best underground DJs in the country descend on Chinatown's laidback new dance spot. Scott Zacharias is known for his early-morning sleaze sets and life-changing mixes like BELLE ISLE DAYS. Open Space head DJ RAY brings the slo-mo house heat in from Miami, with Detroit head Bill Spencer and Music From Memory signees Loveshadow rounding out this deep bill.
It's no surprise this event is being put on by a festival, because the lineup is almost festival-worthy just for one night: in addition to a percussive healing ritual from Eris Drew and Octo Octa, you've got one of LA's most skilled DJs (Colored Craig) alongside Bord Lord and local heroes Surround.
This party from the much-loved Ostbahnhof says it's "giving Berghain Berlin rave." Whether you agree or not, the lineup, featuring Moderna, Mez and Bears In Space cofounder Victor Rodriguez, is impossible to argue with, plus a whole grip of talented hosts.
This vibrant, diverse lineup reflects the variety on Jessy Lanza's new DJ-Kicks, which reminds us that she's basically as good a DJ as she is a live performer. From rap to footwork to R&B to big beat pastiche and post-chillwave, this one's got a little something for everyone.
