ACID CIRCUSThe 206 is in for a dark and sweaty treat this Saturday night when Vidal and Vangelis Vargas of Droid Behavior AKA Acid Circus bring a taste of LA techno to the Emerald City. If there is one thing that Seattle loves more than dancing under bridges, a cold case of PBR cracked open at the afterparty and a clear and sunny October afternoon, it’s the unrelenting aural penetration known as TECHNO.

In addition to being ridiculously on-point DJs and skilled producers whose tracks often find themselves at the top of the charts, the Vargas brothers are key contributors to the Los Angeles techno movement. Click here to read an interview with Acid Circus by Drew Best for Media Contender, and here is a more recent piece on Droid Behavior’s Seven Year Anniversary Party this past Saturday night, along with a download from Kid606.

Seattle! Catch these brothers Saturday night at the Electric Tea Garden, located above the Artificial Limb Company on Capitol Hill with local support from bonafide techno freaks Kristina Childs, Jeromy Nail and Condiment Crew peeps DJ Shift, Murdoc and Charles T. Shade.

Dubstep LA: Embrace the Renaissance Vol. 1

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2009 by worldromper

An awesome new mix dropped today, some real killer shit straight from LA that is cranking up my afternoon with the stench of slap-happy bass! Mixed by the UK’s Plastician, LA Dubstep features the talents of Benga, Starkey, Grouch, Caspa, MRK1, Snoop Dogg, Murs, 12th Planet and heaps more artists from all over!

The filthy sickness that is this mix leans deep into the West Coast with the distinct, heady flavor of California, like you rolled some dank ass dubstep in a purple blunt wrapper and set it on fire. Click here to smoke that shit and go to MediaContender and download Cashmere Agency presents Mr. Gristle and Tha Russian: Dubstep LA.
