Last Thursday, I was blessed to see a great show at the Echoplex in Silverlake. Goldroom, Carousel and Ghost Beach absolutely rocked a packed house full of energetic hipsters. All three have a style each unique in it’s own way.

Originally apart of synth pop trio NightWaves, Goldroom of Los Angeles provided a laid-back disco feel similar to Poolside. It is perfect for the typical Southern California vibe and even though it is not summertime anymore, it sure felt like it when he was on stage. Below is my favorite track of his from the night.

Goldroom – “Morgan’s Bay”:

Brooklyn based electro-pop duo, Carousel will soon become house hold names in the music industry. Their catchy and genuine sound  got the crowd dancing their shoes off.This was the first time I have ever seen them live but certainly not the last. Check out my favorite track of theirs from the night that will surly be getting some radio time soon.

Carousel – “Open Road”:

By far the best performance of the night that I saw was that of Ghost Beach. Hailing from New York City, this tropical grit pop group provides an 80′s rock influence with a modern day alternative rock sound. They were featured on our Best You Never Heard 7: Summer Underdogs mixtape back in August. This group is going places and I look forward to seeing them perform live again. My favorite track of theirs from the night is below.

Ghost Beach – “Tear Us Apart”: 

As a whole, this show featured some great electro-pop up-and-comers that are worth taking a closer look. I cannot wait to see how they progress as artists.

August 21st, 2012 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Daily Mix, Guest Mix |

Pacific Festival The Dunes Sept 2 2012 385x600 Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012 preview + official festival mixSouthern California’s Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012 is quickly approaching and I thought I would provide some details into one of the most underrated festivals in California. Not only is there a great variety of music from retro soul crooner Mayer Hawthorne to daytime disco duo Poolside to probably the best electro-dance pop/rock band ever, Capital Cities, this is a festival you don’t want to miss on Sunday September 2! This festival will be set against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean at The Dunes in Newport Beach with DJ sets from plenty of up-and-comers you need to see live including Bag Raiders, Goldroom andMiami Horror to name a few.

The best way for me to express my excitement for Pacific Festival (which we reviewed last year), is to once again provide the “unofficial” Pacific Festival 2012 mixtape, which features 15 of my favorite songs from the acts performing at this year’s festival. Stream the 15-track mix below as well as the official “Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012″ mix. Purchase tickets here and visit PacificFestival.com for more info on this must-see event that added the people behind Identity Festival to make this year’s festival even more of a rager! (more…)
