Sango | Monte Booker

 

Soulection has always been very much welcomed in the Bay Area, and thanks to DJ Dials for booking their crew consistently, their fan base has grown considerably. Last time Sango was in town, he tore apart 1015 Folsom, but over the weekend he upgraded to the beautiful Regency Ballroom for a packed house.

 

Dials notoriously opens his own shows (I would too), and he can set the tone for any booking he sets. Right from the get go, the vibe was right and everyone was ready for the smooth trimmings of Monte Booker. I had seen this guy’s name around, but this was the first time I got to listen to his music. His set was filled with sultry beats and four on the floor tempos that perfectly complemented what was about to come.

 

Sango is a legend. As one of the back bones of the Soulection crew, you can always expect for him to bring the heat and keep it unique. His Brazilian and Latin inspired beats always get me going. Everyone was hype from top to bottom, and the night was capped in a way only one of Soulection’s founding fathers could do.

Seven Lions has always been at the forefront of ethereal synths, using powerful drums to create his own breed of heavenly dubstep. The kind of stuff that has you closing your eyes and being fully immersed in the sound waves. His massive tour makes way to not one, but TWO nights in Oakland this weekend. The new collab “Rush Over Me” below, is a testament to his style and what to expect at one of his shows.

TicketsEvent InfoLights Down Low

 

When I moved away from southern California, I thought the thing I would miss most (other than my family) was the consistent music scene in LA. But thanks to event producers like Lights Down Low, I’ve pretty much forgot about it. Although, I do miss the bigger LA venues, but I digress.

 

Lights Down Low have been at it for over a decade, bringing the most well respected underground acts to California for their entire tenure. Seeing as how they’ve booked heavy-hitters SKREAM & Jamie Jones for this Friday, their ten year anniversary will be no different. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll open up your schedule for this unforgettable night at arguably San Francisco’s best venue.

San Francisco! Being in one of the best cities in the country comes with its NYE decisions…With so many options, it puts us, the fans, in charge of exactly how to bring in 2016. Another Planet Entertainment made this a no brainer. With a lineup that’s full of artists that could be headlining their own NYE show, we have THE BIG ONE!

 

 

We finally got to go see Bill Graham Civic Auditorium a couple weeks ago when Odesza sold out back-to-back nights at the venue. For such a large venue, it’s surprisingly intimate. There is no bad seat in the whole house. Whether you want to be in a wicked dance circle in the pit, or on the balcony dancing comfortable between the seats, you’re guaranteed to get an eye opening view of the city’s most grandiose venues! Sixteen artists. Three stages. One absolutely unforgettable night. Enjoy the playlist as you get hyped for the best NYE party in the country.

Sometimes I wish “Lightning In A Bottle” classified as its own sub-genre. It’s a style of music I can’t get enough of…I’m talking the tribal, experimental-yet-dancy types of songs that teleport you to another world. Yppah fits right along with this vibe, supplementing smooth guitars on airy, ethereal synths that induce closed eye visuals of their own. Could just be the album art that’s burned into my brain. Either way, it works!
