The Do Lab’s shows at King King are becoming my monthly trek to Hollywood. Oh I find myself in Hollyweird far more often than that, the neighborhood being somewhat of a necessary evil when you live in Los Angeles. However I try to avoid shows in Hollyhood as much as possible. In general the drinks are expensive, the people are stupid, the sidewalk smells like urine and the parking situation is almost as bad as “The Situation.”

But for The Do Lab, I will endure, because I know the music is going to be good. I know the crowd will be smiling and I know the whole club will be dancing from start to finish. I love this. Usually at clubs in LA or anywhere there is a much higher percentage of looky-loo’s than dancers, which lends itself to a creepy, voyeuristic feel. But The Do Lab’ shows are not about standing and watching. They are about crowd participation, and damn that crowd got down on Thursday night! I was impressed. Continue reading

Marty Party Rules the World

Posted in Artists, Events, LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , , on March 24, 2010 by worldromper

In case you missed it, Marty Party rules the fucking world.

That’s right; instead of this bullshit economic meltdown and crap-ass earthquake drama, we will take to the seas of blisterfucked bass in ships with sails of synths! Guided by our kind Captain of Crunk we will fly over mountain ranges of beats until we crash into the oblivion of our own minds- and then BEG to do it over and over again.

And I am not alone on this ship, my friends, for although there are many names on many lips that flap about the streets of LA and the online underground, Marty Party is one that I have been hearing a whole hell of a lot lately. This is the good shit, people. Take a big hit, and hold it in.

Marty Party’s remix of “Cricket” on RD’s Cricket EP Remixes (released this week) is my personal favorite in this tight cluster of top-notch tracks. His own productions bring a unique perspective and rich authenticity to the lower end, he is a ball to hear and watch perform alone or as part of Pantyraid with OOah, and for the love of god, his chosen last name is PARTY. Shake on the swagger already; hear the music and feel the loveAnd dance.

Find heaps of good music on Marty Party’s SoundCloud page; right now I am loving his Sufjan Stevens Remix.

Marty Party plays Filthy Apple April 3 in NYC along with Ana Sia– yet one more sign that West Coast Sound is taking this whole motherfucking world OVER.

The Do LaB presents THE GLITCH MOB, Marty Party & Jupit3r JAN 9

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2010 by worldromper

I love The Do LaB. Why? Because they’re DOING shit. This LA crew puts a whole heap of time and effort and energy and love into creating party experiences that blend getting crazy with a beautiful environment and profound sensory saturation. Their shows drip with heart.

I was recently asked what liked most about my new home of Los Angeles- The weather? The beaches? The nightlife? The people? Without a doubt I answered: “the creative energy,” and I think that The Do LaB exemplifies the spirit burning in this city that draws us to make wonderful things, to produce art, to write and to dance. People don’t come to LA to fart around and float through life. This is a city of doers, of movers and shakers, of music makers.

And in 2010 we are taking no prisoners; the new decade kicks off with a whomp this Saturday January 9 as the Glitch Mob thunders down a blitz of bass on the El Rey Theatre. With a new album coming out this Spring, expect plenty of fresh material from these three. Marty Party delivered a delicious set Friday night in SF that had me embedded on the dance floor, and Jupit3r has been one of my favorites since I’ve moved to LA.

In short, should be a wild night with a nice slapping showcase of West Coast Sound!
