The Do Lab kicked off Halloween festivities with their extremely successful Halloween Spooktacular event at the El Rey Theatre on October 31st.
Mux Mool kicked off the night with his signature blend of electro hip-hop. His set included funky tracks featuring aggressive synth lines with minimalistic melodies.

Up next was G Jones who pummeled the crowd with an unrelenting barrage of new electronic music via his MPD 32. His set featured some of his finest tunes including "Zig Zag" off of his recent Eyes EP mixed with a few tunes from EPROM's latest release 'Halflife' and G Jones's 'Mile High Club' collaboration with headliner Minnesota.
Michal Menert rocked out onstage with a live drummer performing his soulful glitch music including a brand new remix of "Spirit In The Sky" by Norman Greenbaum. His set included a wide variety of his own tunes and a few from the Pretty Lights Music label's catalog.
After Menert's set, a costume contest featuring the most creative and notable costumes was held as an intermission. The two most popular costumes were an alien and a turtle, but in the end the alien won by a landslide of applause. The alien was awarded two tickets to The Do Lab's annual music festival Lightning In A Bottle.
Minnesota closed out the night with a bang with his unique style of bass music seamlessly mixed with splashes of hip-hop such as Biggie and Snoop Dogg acapellas. Towards the end of his set, he even threw in a few dirty dubstep bangers to spice up his set of churning, melodic bass music.
The event proved that Lightning in a Bottle isn't the only thing The Do Lab has to offer electronic music fans, and that plenty more great events, such as Beats Antique's new live show, will be coming from them very soon.
