20 YEARS OF WIGGLE…
DJ legends,Terry Francis, Nathan Coles & Evil Eddie Richards started a movement (and record label) in London that would carry on for over a decade and this weekend we will make moves to celebrate this musical victory!
Wiggle has long held a special place in the hearts of the underground community while ascending the height's to it's present incarnation, being responsible along the way for the birth of a unique sound. Held initially on a monthly basis at a variety of often secret locations and promoted strictly through word of mouth, the club has grown and developed through it's policy of promoting the original etho's of the acid house movement; it's sound system booms, the decor is wild, it's atmosphere unpretentious, where absolutely everybody is having a great time and with it's own unique sound of deep house and techno. Wiggle is a night like no other and has consistantly been ahead of it's time.
Saturday be prepared to experience this for yourself at Los Globos with a star studded lineup; TERRY FRANCIS, DOC MARTIN, MODERNLUV, G DUBBS & MIGGZ.

Mob out to China Town to avoid the chumps and hear some top notch tunes.
FREE Dance Party this Friday at General Lee's. With Special guest Dj Spun & Paul T alongside residents Måns & Øsamu.
If busy means happy, then DJ Spun should be delirious. A key player in various U.S. music scenes since the early 80’s, he got his start playing in San Francisco bands and has shared the stage with such punk luminaries as the Dead Kennedy’s, Black Flag and Social Distortion.
In 1987, he got his first DJ gig, an opening slot for Kurtis Blow in San Jose. From there he went on to his now legendary club nights. He held residencies at such seminal West Coast parties as A Rave Called Sharon, Funky Techno Tribe and The Gathering. Manning the decks in countless guest spots Spun has racked up the frequent flyer miles playing at many world-renowned parties and clubs.

Friday night another installment of RISKY VISIONS goes down at the iconic Sunset blvd venue the ECHOPLEX. Magnetic checked in with the party mistress and lady behind the scenes (or creating the “scene”if you will) Courtney Fruitfly Nichols and she had this to say;
"Risky Vision takes no prisoners on June 20th as Detroit techno legend Kevin Saunderson plays alongside Chicago's masterful The Black Madonna. Also featuring L.A.'s own Sleazemore from the Lights Down Low underground collective, the night will surely be history making. Let's lose ourselves in nonstop, frantic dancing."

TERRY FRANCIS & MORE/WIGGLE
LOS GLOBOS. SILVERLAKE
Heavy London Vibes…
OXYGEN L.A. RETURNS SUMMER 2014 WITH A HOT ONE!
20 YEARS OF WIGGLE with TERRY FRANCIS, LONDON UK
The last time Terry graced Los Angeles with his presence it was insane. This time around he will be joined by L.A's ambassador of house, Doc Martin (Sublevel, Sublevel-Live)! The last time these two played together in L.A was back in the 90s. Needless to say they are long over due!
This all night dance affair will also feature some of L.A's leading dj's. From the infamous JACK party & creator of Making Shapes, Jeniluv joins us with her new project MODERNLUV with dj/producer Moderna of Ghostly International. www.soundcloud.com/modernluv
Joined by the resident and co-creator of O2, G-Dubbs. Known for his long standing underground party—Sacred Grounds, G-Dubbs has been a staple in the L.A underground scene since the early 90s and has since been turning the heads of taste-makers with his unique style & sound.
Also joining them is the man responsible for bringing the Wiggle Crew to L.A numerous times in the past while working with the famed Absurd Parties. Now, setting sail behind the decks he has developed into a seasoned dj. From Animal Factory we introduce to you, Miggz.
Since winning Muzik magazines "Best New DJ" award in 1997, Terry Francis has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame.
A seamless mix of deep dubby house, celestial breaks and ethereal vocals - Some called it "tech house", whilst Terry himself jokingly described to it as "house no".
Ultimately though, any labeling of Terry's style is fairly pointless because what he does is what all the very best DJ's do. He blurs the lines between the past and the present to create the future and always plays from the heart.
As always this is a 21 and over members only affair.
LET THE MADNESS AND THE MUSIC GET TO YOU.
