New MOCHIPET Album “Chicxulub” – Free MP3 on XLR8R

Posted in Album News & Reviews, Events, Music News with tags , , , on August 8, 2011 by worldromper

Mochipet drops a new album CHICXULUB next Tuesday August 16 on STS9’s 1320 Records, a melody-driven romp through a dinosaur dreamworld whose fun energy will be welcomed on dance floors all over – and good thing, because Mochipet sets off on a tour throughout the US in September, beginning with the Burn.

XLR8R has posted the first single off the album for free download, “Yoshi’s Dinosaur Egg Hunt,” calling it “an energetic slice of epic beat work that matches videogame-style arpeggiators (check the title) along with an over-powering breakbeat and a healthy dose of low-end rumble.”

[Video] Bassnectar Live at Red Rocks

Posted in Album News & Reviews, Events, Videos with tags , , on July 29, 2011 by worldromper

Festival king Bassnectar has a new album dropping next week August 2 called Divergent Spectrum, a balls-out, banger-filled album heat, frenzy and the big live energy that the artist is known for.

DJs all over the country count on Bassnectar’s heady, frothy, bass-fueled tracks to sling fire like sonic rain down upon their dance floors, and party people/beat freaks flock to his live shows in search of the sublime transcendence that the dance floor provides.

Capturing the wild-eyed vibe of a Bassnectar live show in one of the most beautiful venues on earth, this video from Red Rocks just may convince you to take another look and another listen of the #2 selling electronic artist today.

Divergent Spectrum is out August 2 on Amorphous Music.

Posted in Events with tags , on July 16, 2011 by worldromper


Avant-garde theatrical performance troupe Lucent Dossier Experience performs at the renovated Palace Theatre in downtown LA on July 28.

Many of you may know Lucent from their amazing performances & interaction at festivals like Coachella and Lightning in a Bottle; their antics and shenanigans are often the highlight of the weekend for many.

Lucent Dossier Experience is usually out & about across the globe, performing everywhere from the Bahamas to India, but on July 28 they bring their magic home to Los Angeles to one of the oldest surviving vaudeville theaters in the U.S., the Palace Theatre.

Tickets start at only $20 for this special event!

New Dubstep Weekly: HEAVY Launches Thursday, June 23 @ Echoplex

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , on June 11, 2011 by worldromper

It’s hard to believe that with the undeniable upsurge in popularity that dubstep has experience in the past few years that there is no weekly dubstep night in Los Angeles.

That’s all about to change with the launch of HEAVY, an all-dubstep night on the east side at the Echoplex which will take place every Thursday. This new event is 18+, the cover is $10 and with the big capacity of the Echoplex, should be a rightful banger.

Resident DJs will be local legend 6Blocc, as well as Daddy Kev and DJ Nobody of Low End Theory fame. Special guests will perform every week, and word on the street is that some pretty big names are lined up to play the first several weeks of events.

Find more information on the HEAVY Facebook event page, and follow HEAVY on Twitter for all the late-breaking updates about this new weekly event.

Lightning in a Bottle 2011 Time Slots by Day

Posted in Events, Festivals with tags on May 24, 2011 by worldromper

LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE IS UPON US! 

Festivals always like to print their schedule by stage, however I attend festivals a day at a time. So here is a handy-dandy print-up of the Lightning in a Bottle 2011 schedule BY DAY.

Please note these time slots go backwards, starting with the headliner late in the night and working their way backwards in the day.

I usually print out a couple of these to refer to in the latter part of the festival when everyone has lost their official programs and asking everyone they know about the lineup!
