One of the fastest rising lyricists in the future beats/bounce scene, GoldLink has been getting major attention this past year. His 2014 mixtape The God Complex was the definitive marker of his skill with flow and social commentary. He blends the two together into energetic and sporadic rap that is no less than impressive. And with a voice as unique as his, it’s hard not to pay attention.

 

GoldLink – Dance on Me

GoldLink – Bedtime Story

GoldLink – Creep

Peanut Butter WolfTickets

 

Peanut Butter Wolf is one of the most respected DJs of the past 20 years. His knowledge of all things music has allowed him to lead the famous Stones Throw Records – responsible for some of the better releases of our age. With his coffer as thick as it is, his performances become extended adventures through some of the best underground sounds new and old. Expect to hear some rare and funky tunes.

 

MDA regular Torosbros will help warm us up to the experience.

Lightning In A Bottle | Lineup | Tickets | Set Times

 

Lightning in a Bottle wouldn’t be Lightning in a Bottle without the heavy tremble of bass music. Our final preview before making the journey to Bradley pays homage to this fact. It also pays homage to G Jones‘s rise through the ranks of bass technicians. His after-hours Drift set last year was so good that he’s become a regular at DoLab events. We’re proud of him.

 

He mixes beats, hip-hop, grime, trap, ethnic and dark bass to create a soundscape that’s hard to replicate. Come dance with us as he tears up the Big Fish Thunder Stage on Saturday at 8pm – prime time hour for things to get a whole lot weirder and a whole lot more fun.

Event Info | Tickets

 

The hype behind Alison Wonderland’s Coachella set was well based. Her performance made it into the top 5 of our weekend. Her skill at mixing was put on display for all to see. Though we could tell she was nervous, she still blew it out of the water. Did you catch that Pharaoh Monch edit? Prime.

 

As a follow up, she’s coming back to SoCal to perform at El Rey on Friday [5|16]. She’ll be celebrating the release of Run. Because it is a more intimate setting, expect to hear a few more originals than at Coachella. With AWE also on the bill, it’s definitely going to be a party.

 

HOW TO ENTER

Standard procedure. The contest ends at 12PM Thursday, May 14th!

Sultry meets bouncy with Pomo’s flawless rendition of Alina & Galimatias’ “Fantasy.” A perfect, more party-friendly balance of what the two have to offer. Last year I said that 2015 would be Galimatias’ year. Recently being signed to Ultra Records and collaborating with artists like Pomo will only have his success culminate faster. The talent is there. He needs all of our support to spread the word! Below is a good place to start.

A Tribe Called RedTICKETS

 

Back when we featured ATCR, we knew they were onto something big with their self-dubbed “Pow Wow Step”. Since then, they’ve only been evolving and we’ve brought them out to OC to show us exactly how. Their mix for Diplo & Friends last year is a pretty good preview of the Aboriginal influenced hip-hop, tribal, and kuduro style party that they throw. Things are going to get wild. Don’t miss it.

 

HOW TO ENTER

Standard procedure. The contest ends at 12PM Friday April 17th!

Both a musical journey and an artistic display, Until the Ribbon Breaks is a project of grand proportions. What started as a one man exploration has since evolved into a spellbinding three-piece of dark rock layered with experimental R’n’B. Their music videos only bring an added allure.

 

Throughout 2014, they established themselves in a similar realm of The Neighbourhood‘s black-white but with a decidedly more broken man approach. The result is something extremely emotive and earnestly intimate. Catch them early on Saturday to help calm some nerves.
