We have some deep DJs from the Superfreq label including Mr. C, Brett Johnson, David Scuba and XO Chic. All Magnetic guests will be treated to an open bar courtesy of Red Bull until the tab runs out, so get there early if you want a couple drinks on the house. Give aways from our favorite headphone company AiAiAi. This is going to be an amazing night with some really great tech/deep house music.

THEM JEANS, KILLER CAM & MORE/THE WILD ONES
The stylish bad boys club otherwise known as L.A based brand Chambers, is throwing a rager at Los Globos this Friday. Originally built as an American Legion Dance Hall, Los Globos plays a prominent role in LA's musical history. Other than Latin dancing and one mean cocktail, this institution located in the heart of Silverlake is a haven for live music of every genre.
Friday night will feature Jason Stewart, better known to the world as Them Jeans, To categorize him as merely another DJ/producer would be to understate his drive and contributions to the current musical landscape in Los Angeles and increasing influence in the global music community. The driving force behind world famous club night Dim Mak Tuesdays at Cinespace for over five years as both a DJ and promoter, helping to showcase acts as eclectic and renown as Justice, Lady Gaga, and Kid Cudi. His well thought out, genre-bending sets (spanning from house music to southern rap) have recently seen him gaining recognition from publications such as URB, Vapors, and XLR8R, while expanding his fan base through recent touring throughout North America and Europe.
A personal local fave of mine,DJ Killer Cam is a real crowd pleaser. This self proclaimed party machine, nub wrangler, hang looser, frog splash specialist has a current residency at Hemingways Lounge and can be found all over the damn city turning some serious dj tricks. Sounds pretty turnt up to me kiddies.

Doors: 1pm - 8pm Sadie Kitchen & Lounge, 1638 N Las Palmas, Los Angeles
Jetting in from the UK and Ireland (via Berlin), we welcome two of the hottest producers on the scene right now in MANO LE TOUGH (Permanent Vacation) and MIDLAND (Aus Music/Phonica) for another Sunday afternoon of House, Disco & Techno in the heart of Hollywood.
MIDLAND: Hailing from Leeds in the UK, Midland is one of house music's rising stars. Since his debut offering "Your Words Matter", with room mate and Hessle Audio chief, Ramadanman, his profile has shot up and continues to grow by the second. Strong remixes for a diverse collection of artists such as Guy Gerber, 2 Bears, Julio Bashmore & Caribou are testament to his considerable production talent, while his own tracks are a staple part of every major artist's box from Steve Bug to Sasha.
This kind of profile has led to him becoming one of the most in demand players in the game as his schedule shows. We Love @ Space (Ibiza), Panorama Bar (Berlin) & Fabric (London) are just a few of the major dance floors where you can hear his gritty deep house sound in full effect. His own statement on the hours spent in his studio are enough to get us all excited....
"If you're in your room doing the dance when writing it, then you know people will do it on the dance floor when listening to it."
MANO LE TOUGH: Mano likes "Nature, eating vegetables and reading" but thankfully for all of us, he also likes producing great music and delighting our ears with amazing DJ sets. Like his close friend, Midland, Mano (aka Niall Mannion) has been ascending to the top of the game at an alarming rate of knots.
The Irish producer has been one of the busiest in the business over the last few years with constant high profile output on labels such as Permanent Vacation, Buzzin Fly and Mirau. As well as remixing for the likes of Tensnake, Aloe Blacc & Azari & III to name a few, Mano's own production skills have seen scale the heights with his own long player "Changing Days" released to critical acclaim in February of this year and spawning remixes from some of the scenes hottest names.
With DJ gigs a plenty, he's certainly a man in demand as high profile appearances at the likes of Sonar, DC10 and Berghain can attest to. We're very excited to say that he will be adding our own anonymous dance floor to this illustrious list.
Bas discovered his love for DJing while still in high school school in 1999 and relocated to Los Angeles in 2005, hooking up with the Culprit crew and Droog shortly after. Since, Bas helped launch the Culprit label in 2008 and has been a resident on the decks for the infamous Culprit Sessions atop the The Standard Rooftop and in various Hollywood hot spots before settling on the Plastic Love moniker with long-time friend Jimmy Maheras
