Recap: Madam X is straight F I R E at Shady Park

So I know she came here awhile ago, but man, I just had to write about it. I HAD TO. People HAVE to know about the wonder that is Madam X. I was working the door at Shady that night. Hazel, an up-and-comer, opened, and she brought her signature house vibes. Orenda played next; his …

Recap: CRSSD Spring 2019

If you can’t already tell, I’m horribly backlogged with writing. But I wanna catch up on some things before the year is over (and the year is already flying by!). Wasn’t it just the other day it was just January? SMH Anyway, CRSSD. This was my first year attending it, and I wanted to give …

Austin Feldman’s new single ‘Gotta Be’ is bass-house heater

If you’re in the scene, you should be no stranger to the name Austin Feldman. I had the privilege of listening to him open for Dom Dolla last Sunday at Shady Park and boy, was it a treat! I was def’ vibin’ out hella to his tunes.  ‘Gotta Be’, his hot new track released on Brazilian label One Stamp Records, starts off very minimally at first, leaving the listener wondering what’s to come. But once the drop hits …

Recap of Night Bass Fifth Anniversary at Exchange LA

It’d been a while since I’d been to LA. My last trip was (I think) about a year and a half ago so needless to say, I was pretty excited. The idea started off as a whim but turned into the real deal soon enough. Tickets were bought, plans were made, and BAM! we were …

Recap of ‘Robot Island Presents: The Ugly Sweater Party: Sweater Beats w/ Vincent and yetep’

         I was super excited to attend this show because I love lofi and future bass. Before this show got announced, I’d never heard of the other artists before, other than Sweater Beats. I’d decided to check Vincent and yetep out on Spotify earlier that day. I’m late to the game, I …

Recap of Shady Park Fam Jam: 3 Year Weekend Kickoff

                            Vibes were buzzin’ with high energy at Shady Park. It was the perfect Friday kickoff to an epic weekend celebrating Shady Park’s 3rd year anniversary. Lights were sparklin’ gaily in the trees, and it was truly lit (pun intended).       …

Recap of Petit Biscuit at the Van Buren

Petit Biscuit was, simply, nothing short of exquisitely magical. __ He makes a grand entrance: as the music swells, he is draped in shadow at first before he steps out into the light. He is taller than I imagined, but his face is young, as the light dims across his face, he is a mysterious …

Recap of ‘Alice in Wonderland 3: The Red Queen’s Revenge’

                      Ahh! And here we go again, down the rabbit hole. I still remember vividly my memories of the last one last year. I’d never gone to a desert rave before. Mark Tomlinson (also fondly known by us all as DJ Dark Mark) very kindly offered …

Bardz’s remix of Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’

                   I’ll always remember the first time I saw Bardz perform. His unique live set set him apart from many other local djs. It was one of the Happy Camper popup events and it was clear to me how comfortable he was as he played. As a …
