Sunrise

Let there be techno

Winter in Los Angeles AKA please pass the sunblock

Interface 30 presented by Droid Behavior was to take place at undisclosed warehouse location #388 last Saturday night, however by the time I got to the map point around 4AM, the party had already been moved to the second location of the evening, thanks to another sweet stopover by the LAPD. Cops are such awesome guests at parties. Mad party points to Droid for moving the show as well as to that crazy techno crowd that doesn’t give a DAMN and will thrash until the sun comes up, every time.

I recognized the second location and was STOKED because it is one of my favorite venues in Los Angeles. I was the last to arrive at the map point before they left for the night and soon arrived to a party that had been throbbing for a while, with none of the straight-sober jitters evident in the crowd like exists when you walk into a show at 10PM to an empty dance floor ringed with shufflers and full beers. People were dancing and screaming, as they should be at 4AM on Saturday night in the entertainment capital of the world. I dove into the dance floor.

Speedy J was up and shoving it out with Scott Pagano next to him on the visuals. I really liked this setup and would like to see it more: DJ and VJ side by side. This venue is a fatty late-night spot because of all the weird and cushy seats, couches and wrestling pads around the main room that you can lounge in when your jello legs need a break. A mix of steam and smoke billows out the open windows all night long, finally calming in the morning when most of the dance floor wanders off and the rainbow colors of the LA sunrise filter in.

Drumcell played after Speedy J; always a pleasure, and he was celebrating the date of his manufacture AKA his birthday. Beautiful techno. I don’t know what time it when was I climbed on the roof and I don’t know what time it was when I left.

I love Droid parties because they are unapologetically techno. If you like techno, you will love Droid parties. Don’t like techno? A Droid party might just convince you otherwise. Two things are certain: 10) Droid is LA techno and 2) you can find me next to the speaker.

Droid Behavior presents the Wham Bam Thank You NAMM Afterparty this Friday at the Downtown Independent.
