Summer is in full swing and the possibilities to hear music worth writing home about are endless. While some of you may prefer intimate under the radar and obscure settings, others like myself find solace under disco ball lights surrounded by other like minded individuals keen to boogie. Whatever kind of creature you may be, here are some handpicked parties that LA has to offer all you lovely, lovely people.
“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

DISTRIKT is a non-profit electronic music collective and experiment of a few Deep End organizers of years past. Ask any one of us why, and you might get a different answer: giving back to the electronic music and alternative arts community; a desire to throw furious & fierce parties in the desert and elsewhere throughout the year; an urge to provide venues for music, dancing, and other art forms; an arrested development inability to let go and an ambition to try something new.

Quality music is born from the soul but gifted life through the gathering of like-minded people on the dance floor, giving wings to friendship and feelings to thought. Every Saturday at Exchange, good music and good memories bloom. This is the Inception of something beautiful.
Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude VonStroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records.
Demand for Justin’s skills behind the decks has skyrocketed with his bookings schedule constantly crammed to capacity. With dates everywhere from Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Space (Ibiza) and a full album tour for summer and fall 2o12, its no wonder Justin’s diary is reading like the dreams of a professional raver. Stateside he continues to be a regular fixture at the dirtybird events in San Francisco and beyond.
