LA Riots - LA Riots Volume 2
LA Riots, LA Riots Volume 2 (YSI link)
It's been awhile since we posted a mix from one of our favorite DJs. Sensing that lack, my bol Daniel Le Disko sent me this 43 minute jawn and I had to share it with you. Daniel's one half of the LA Riots, along with Jo'b, who've come together in the past year and have quickly become the people to watch in the dance music scene.
Wow, this mix, LA Riots Volume 2, is just soooo good, start to finish, on the indie dance side of the spectrum, just banger after banger, including a few edits from the boys themselves. This is a peak-time set, great songs, no let-up. The duo have some big events coming up from their weekly Sunday night jawn Le Disko at The Spider Club in LA to a LA Times event to a Modular Pool Party. The one thing I noticed though was that these events were all in Southern California. This needs to change, as it's time for the rest of the country to recognize game. San Fran, Chicago, New York City, Philly, Miami, bring these dudes in and let them take your party to the next level. Get at them on myspace to get in touch, say hello, thank them for the mix, book them for your next party. These dudes are Pound for Pound approved, two of the nicest and most talented guys out there, they're finna blow up so get in at the beginning.
For those of you in LA, I can't recommend the Greyscale party more highly. LA Riots will be there to rep the home city, with special guest James Fucking Friedman coming in from NYC to up the dance ante. You also get a showdown between Sean Patrick and Dirty Dave, meaning Temporary Spaces 1 (5100 Fountain@Normandie) is gonna be in a permanent state of dance.
This is guest list only, so you need to RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Repeat, you need to email email@example.com to get into this party, no ifs ands or buts. Once you get in there's free vodka from 9:30-10:30, packed house, cool venue.
