YOLO Mentions bring attention to special
songs featured in that week’s YOLO List. Get the latest list
here!

I don’t often come across songs that I get as attached to as I have with T.E.E.D.’s (Orlando Higginbottom) remix of “It’s My Part.” It’s a song to get lost in. Orlando has this keen ability with how he handles his bass lines that always hooks me. I can just see him grooving on his drum kit through the whole track, keeping every part of it unique. Listen closely!
Joquil – It’s My Part (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs)

In preparation for his upcoming album, he released the first single…for free! At first I freaked out, because it was only available to his fans in the UK, but then one of our readers from UK sent me the song. :’) Makes me happy. He’s been touring around the UK too much! I mean, it is his native land…but the world needs more dinosaurs. Not as big on this track, but all of his stuff tends to grow on me.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – You Need Me On My Own (192 kbps)

In case you missed his last free release, follow this link or just listen below. Great song. The Twelves even put it in one of their recent mixes! So many good things.

Happy days! Lots of shows and events coming up. GA floor tickets to Knife Party sold out within 20 minutes and completely sold out today. SUCKS! I missed floor tickets by 1 minute. Still got balcony tickets because shows at the Wiltern are life changing. Especially ones like this. So many shows at risk of selling out. Crazy stuff. But yeah, saw Oliver this Thursday at Dance Right. Awesome. Love that club. Dillon Francis even came to hang that night, and then we saw him at the Observatory last night. Although he kept crying about people starting mosh pits, it still was a crazy ass, high energy show. Never get tired of his sets. Pictures to follow! Enjoy #79.

LA’s longest running weekly party is back again this Thursday with an especially awesome lineup. Dance Right sticks to getting the most fun DJs and caters to an overwhelmingly comfortable atmosphere. Everyone there is trying to get down and meet new like-minded people. I love that shit. Last time I was there, Treasure Fingers took the decks and I ended up losing my hat, phone, and took a cab back from LA to Orange County even though my car was down the street. Too much fun? Debatable. Scope more info and tracks after the jump..

After ticket sales came to a close a bit earlier than expected and a bunch of my friends lagged, this show ended up being one for the bros. Perfect! I could have called it, considering how small Key Club is and the fact that HARD was putting it on. But it was all built up to be a super epic and intimate show…for the bros. We were running late and I didn’t want to miss ANY of Gesaffelstein, assuming he’d perform before Brodinski. And I was just hoping they’d play together for a larger portion of the set. Check some tracks and the HD video I got after the jump.

Starfucker made their way back to California after a 4 month hiatus to start their U.S. tour, and we weren’t about to miss it! For some reason, they chose to leave Los Angeles out of the loop, but still made for two SoCal dates that we got to go too. Our photographer Philip Mendoza shooting the Pomona stop. I know what you’re thinking, “Woah bro. Same band? Two nights in a row? Doesn’t it get boring? Repetitive? Lose it’s magic?” No! Not at all. First, let’s disregard the fact that these guys are one of the most entertaining live bands I’ve seen. This is of course, as far as their ability to be better than the recordings and their sheer RAW energy when it comes to performing live. Let’s also disregard the fact that their lightshow is equipped with multicolored lasers that move all over the venue, giving them the most magical silhouettes throughout the performance (this and this). That being said, the two shows were very different. Check out the HD videos after the jump..

Happy Sunday friends. Feel like it’s been awhile considering that the last list was Albums of the Year…so I have two weeks of collected music to give you! This list is a pretty accurate representation of the different stuff you’ll find every week. And it’s all good! Trust and enjoy:

P.S. For those who care, Coachella has announced Azealia Banks, araabMUZIK, Jimmy Cliff, and BreakBot yesterday! I just love how they’re releasing the low-key, raw talent that people may have looked over on a lineup of big names. It’s getting closer!
