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.

Longer nights. Deeper thoughts. Blood moons. Heavier feelings. We’ve come into this season with high hopes.

 

Amateur Best – White Noise

Amateur Best‘s blasé electronic pop efforts continue on from last month’s ‘They Know‘ with a little less dance and a bit more drone. Excitement surrounds his upcoming album.

 

Maribou State – Wallflower (Simona Drive Remix)

This Simona Drive remix of Maribou State is for solo sideline adventures. With just enough kick to keep the feet shuffling, it gets lost where it doesn’t to be found.

 

HEALTH – Flesh World (Kenton Slash Demon Remix)

Steady death magic techno from Kenton Slash Demon over HEALTH calls upon the secret warehouse vibes of yesteryear. Ride this one into the dawn.

 

BABEL – Made to Stay

BABEL‘s new track reminds us there’s always a tomorrow. Halfway through, the soothing guitar gets the feelings flowing ever thicker.

 

Thrupence – New Light

New light, new life. This subliminal soundscape chases the darkness as it fades to white. In the wake, the sun rises with Thrupence.

 

The Beach Boys – Kokomo (Viceroy Edit)

Summer never ends, as Viceroy well knows. He breathes new life back into The Beach Boys‘ classic track. Not that it ever left.

 

SPZRKT & Sango – How Do You Love Me (Chris McClenney Remix)

Remember to love as SPZRKT & Sango‘s HDYLM gets the jazzy keys treatment by Chris McClenney.

Just 6 months ago, we were lauding FNGRS CRSSD for bringing forward thinking music and well-structured logistics to the San Diego scene. Early last month, they let us know they were far from done. And earlier today, they let us know that they’re here to claim their title as San Diego’s premier festival for those in the musical know.

Well known among Black Rock circles, Goldcap is a master at leading listeners on journeys through deep-desert tech and playa-house. Having caught him multiple times (this year’s LIB experience was a major highlight), it’s a given that we give him credit for the way he spins a story.

 

Symbiosis will be the perfect setting for his off-center Armenian-influenced desert sound; here’s to hoping Sabo makes a guest B2B appearance as he has been recently.

Matt LangeTickets

 

Newest addition to mau5trap, Matt Lange produces techno that is dark, melodic, and eerily satisfying. Upcoming release Ephemera has been pre-touted as a work of pure talent that bridges the gap of deep underground techno and creatively personal experimentation. Expect some awesome blending of underground club styles and ominous inclinations.

 

Daniel Minaya and Ryan Shepherd will be opening the night. Come through for a preview of whats to be in the realm of deeper, darker sounds.

REZZ-Controlaltdelight-Spotlight

FULL POST

If Gesaffelstein is Dracula then REZZ is Wednesday Adams. From the depths of Niagara Falls, Canada comes this 20 year old producer/DJ with an affinity for the darker side of electronica. Packing morbid synths and punchy kick drums, REZZ has burst onto the dark techno scene with the technical melodic prowess of a seasoned veteran. So far she’s remixed Marilyn Manson and the aforementioned Mike Levy to great effect.

 

Her original tracks have heavy 303 and garage influences with a more modern tempo and flow. The mixture of booming synths and sweeps add just the right amount of texture and layering to each record. This is especially evident in new EP Insurrection where wobbly fat synth loops and natural snares combine to put you in a head banging daze. Get lost in her rhythms.
