Missouri’s Fresing throws together a bunch of discordance to make beauty out of the chaos of differences. Add to that the experimental nature of his music, piano riffs, and the sound bites from cinema classics and you’ve got some of the most next level music we’ve heard in a while.

Mr.Vtage | Stratford Court
Chill. Funk. Disco.
Mr.Vtage comes to us by way of time machine. “Lost in the 80′s,” as he so puts it, is the perfect way to describe Funk Noir. Here’s to palm trees, neon shimmer, and disco dancing. All for free.
RÜFÜS DU SOL | Soundcloud | Buy Atlas | TICKETS
Earlier this year, we had the fortunate pleasure of catching Australia’s RÜFÜS DU SOL at one of their free pop up shows at SXSW. (If you don’t know how the music “festival” SXSW works, direct yourself here.) These electronic wonder-kids made our list of top upcoming acts of 2014 to watch for, and for good reason. Take a bit of Cut Copy, a dash of Jagwar Ma, and a smidge of Classixx and you got yourself a nice RÜFÜS fondue.
These guys are as groovy as they come. Backed by live vocals and a full band, they’re an unmissable act to catch. Lucky for us they have Hermitude opening up, and where better than the Fonda in Hollywood? Check below for your chance to win a couple tickets and after the jump for some tunes. <3

Boys Noize | Baauer
A week prior to this event, our hearts were in somber spirits when it was announced that RunX had been cancelled. We had high hopes for the trap and hip-hop heavy sounds of Nadus, Lido, Spank Rock, Baauer, and, of course, Boys Noize. While his festival presence consists mostly of electro, Boys Noize’s intimate sets are a whole different animal that we haven’t experienced since NYE2014.
ODESZA | Soundcloud | Buy In Return
Last week I finally had the chance to sit down with Odesza to get in this interview that’s been a year in the making. I tried to catch them right before their tour with Pretty Lights, because I knew the following year was going to be huge for them. It wasn’t until they finally came back to LA in the midst of an enormous sold out tour that we could chat about their past, present, and future. ODESZA a huge inspiration to many artists currently in the scene and very deservedly so. They’re amongst the select few individuals setting the bar for electronic music as far as production and live shows. Catch the details after the jump!
