10/17 Days


At first glance, BADBADNOTGOOD is one of the more curious placements on the lineup. The Canadian trio has made its name in avant-garde jazz jamming. Delve a little deeper, and it comes to light that their off-kilter beat work has also earned them features alongside stars in the hip-hop and R&B scene. Catch them Saturday for what is looking to be one of the most unique sets of the weekend. Expect some guest features.


Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Shame (BADBADNOTGOOD Remix)

Daniel Caesar – Paradise (ft. BADBADNOTGOOD & Sean Leon)

Little Simz x BadBadNotGood – Our Conversations




Back in 2012, Alex Young was well on his way to becoming a bright star in the trap scene. Still, his more emotively charged work like SWTRWTHR stood out among the black hole mediocrity of perverted brand management.


Fast forward 3 years, and the better part of 2015 spent in the dark soul searching, and 19 year old Alex Young has emerged anew. He has traded away the trap growing pains for an exceedingly poignant and vocal approach to music. Over the last few months he’s teased his debut album, Coming of Age, with 3 tracks and a short movie. Suffice it to say, Alex’s labor of growing up has definitely bore fruit.


Alex Young – I Am.

Alex Young – Right Now






Storms and cold snaps are a weekly affair. Stay warm with these smooth and hypnotizing rhythms; wetness optional.


Felix Pallas – RAKATA

Keep Felix Pallas and RAKATA close. The synthy progressions are so very easy to get lost in.



TENDER tease their second EP with Lost and Afternoon. Their style has really come through: late night, cozy quarters.


Good Morning – To Be Won

Good Morning, it’s time to give up. Recent EP, Glory, from this crew is heavy on the lofi feelings.


Tom Misch x Carmody – Easy Love

Tom Misch and Carmody come together again for a warm and easy affair.


Gnash ft. Olivia O’Brien – I Hate I Love (Perttu Remix)

New on the scene, Perttu takes Gnash‘s hopelessly romantic track with Olivia O’Brien and shifts the low to lively without distracting from the amazing original.


Jahkoy – Odd Future

Toronto’s JAHKOY is far from done with his style of sexy R&B. ‘Odd Future’ is a melancholic self-realization.


Longer nights. Deeper thoughts. Blood moons. Heavier feelings. We’ve come into this season with high hopes.


Amateur Best – White Noise

Amateur Best‘s blasé electronic pop efforts continue on from last month’s ‘They Know‘ with a little less dance and a bit more drone. Excitement surrounds his upcoming album.


Maribou State – Wallflower (Simona Drive Remix)

This Simona Drive remix of Maribou State is for solo sideline adventures. With just enough kick to keep the feet shuffling, it gets lost where it doesn’t to be found.


HEALTH – Flesh World (Kenton Slash Demon Remix)

Steady death magic techno from Kenton Slash Demon over HEALTH calls upon the secret warehouse vibes of yesteryear. Ride this one into the dawn.


BABEL – Made to Stay

BABEL‘s new track reminds us there’s always a tomorrow. Halfway through, the soothing guitar gets the feelings flowing ever thicker.


Thrupence – New Light

New light, new life. This subliminal soundscape chases the darkness as it fades to white. In the wake, the sun rises with Thrupence.


The Beach Boys – Kokomo (Viceroy Edit)

Summer never ends, as Viceroy well knows. He breathes new life back into The Beach Boys‘ classic track. Not that it ever left.


SPZRKT & Sango – How Do You Love Me (Chris McClenney Remix)

Remember to love as SPZRKT & Sango‘s HDYLM gets the jazzy keys treatment by Chris McClenney.

Portland based producer EPROM excels in all things underground bass. Where he stands out is in a wide-ranging background in drum and bass, dubstep, beats and trap. Having last seen him live at HARD Summer 2014, we can only expect he’ll put on a show that’s just as wild both visually and sonically. Check him out Thursday at 10:45pm at The Grotto if you’re trying to start your fest off with some really bizarre and forward thinking sensations.


Alix Perez & EPROM – Chiron


EPROM – Beasts of Babylon

Kendrik Lamar – M.A.A.D. City (Eprom Remix)

The Moony Habits crew has been slowly, but surely, making headway in the LA underground. With 3 shows already logged, Moony Habits is making quite the name for itself. This Thursday, they’re shaking it up again with Rhythm and Bass style that’s rather different from LA’s typical hip-hop and beats scene. Sans one DJ set, every act will be performing LIVE.


Soulection’s Chris McClenney with bring his whole band as he tickles the ivories; StarRo will have vocal support from Gavin Turek, Jarell Perry, Iman Europe, Lindsay Olsen as well as special guest drummer, David Myers Jr.; Moony Habits veteran Mike Gao will be performing his all new Polyplayground set; and A Sol Mechanic will perform live alongside a special secret guest. Astronautica will also be present to DJ the way she does (very well on the beats). Kuro will be playing the changeovers. Come prepared with your night-souls because things are going to get romantic.



Standard procedure. The contest ends at 12PM Thursday, August 6th!
1. Tweet: “I want 2 tickets to see @MisterMcClenney @starRo75 & more on 8/6! with @CtrlAltDelight @moonyhabits”

Santa Monica based vocalist and producer (and golfer and student) Leven Kali’s recent release, 4102, pulls together all that is right with soul, funk, hip-hop, and R&B. Then it throws in modern styles to send extra sexy chills down the spine for good measure. We’re so down with this free and timely 9-tracker. Suffice it to say, this guy has got a bright future ahead of him.
