image002 385x600 Preview: The six must see musicians performing at Pacific Festival 2014!This Saturday August 16 marks the 3rd annual Pacific Festival which will be held at The Dunes in Newport Beach, California. It’s a great location with DJs and bands performing on or near the beach, there should be beautiful weather present and hopefully a laid back fun ambiance in what should be a very fun one-day music festival. This will be my third time attending the Southern California festival in which I’ve discovered some real talented artists. Here’s the set times:

Review: Com Truise at Echoplex

March 10th, 2014 by | Ambient, Concert/Festival Review, Dance, Electro |

74c58908a3f611e39afc122e3f5a0d70 8 600x600 Review: Com Truise at EchoplexA couple Friday’s ago I saw Com Truise at Echoplex. This show felt like being in the game Tron but with drugs like speed and cocaine to enhance your skills in the game. It was almost surreal, especially since Com Truise had the lights going in accordance to the beats he was making; truly a sweet show to be at although some vocals would be nice. I really enjoyed all of it as the music puts you in a trance to dance and feels great but I would love some damn vocalist on stage with Com Truise, that would make things really interesting.

Anyways it’s tough to pick a favorite but the most memorable was probably “Brokendate”. Watch the interesting video for that song below.

Anyways, I don’t remember a ton of what he spun, but when he performed 2009 Duck Sauce hit “Anyway” and the latest Duck Sauce single, 2013′s “It’s You”. Oh and also his 1996 classic, “The Funk Phenomena”; watch music video’s for those three songs below.

January 3rd, 2013 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Electro, Electropop, Hidden Gem, synthpop |

WOLF TRIAGLE 586x600 Hidden Gem: Story of the Running Wolf *LA Electro duoStory of the Running Wolf is an electro duo based out of Los Angeles, CA. A little bit retro, a little bit future, they blend 80′s influences like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran with modern electro-dance elements, creating an infectious sound that’s all their own. After playing their first show at a rooftop party in early 2012, the band began developing a live show experience which has been described as a “John Hughes party on Neptune”, replete with neon lasers, make-up, fog and feathers. Their new self-titled EP is available for free download at www.sotrw.com.

They just dropped their first song/video from their debut EP, “Stratospheric”. Stream and download their EP below.

Watch the video to “Stratospheric” below. (more…)

Review: Go Go Bizkitt! and The Phantom’s Revenge at @TheCentralSAPC

3922491835cf11e2974722000a1fb774 7 600x600 Review: Go Go Bizkitt! and The Phantoms Revenge at @TheCentralSAPCLast Wednesday, I experienced the funky sounds of Go Go Bizkitt! and The Phantom’s Revenge at The Central SAPC in Santa Monica, CA. Both DJs were awesome with Go Go Bizkitt spinning that funky disco house vibes all night while The Phantom’s Revenge played mostly disco house with some trap music and some electro vibes. One of my favorite parts of this dance party show was hearing both of the acts remix Daft Punk.

Stream some of my favorite songs from the two rising DJs below.
