LA-crafted techno this Saturday night


Today’s stale pseudo-celebutard Hollywood clubs and inpersonal massive corporate candy raves leave the sophisticated Angeleno music lover, like myself, yearning for a simpler time — aka the 90s.  The warehouses were plentiful, the drugs were clean, the soundsystems went 8am strong and the energy was lucid and pure. And what there wasn’t was just as important as what there was: no cops, no junior high kids, no VIP guestlist, no pretense.  It was the birth of a new culture that spawned the juggernaut that is the dance music scene in LA today (where would you be without it, Aoki and AM?). Lucky for us Angelenos, LA has once again given birth to a new generation of aficionados, one that’s rooted in music enjoyed at its purest. A drive downtown on any given Saturday nite thru a maze of warehouses, and you just might find that megawatt soundsystem amplifying those tracks you’ve always wanted to hear anywhere but on your tinny desktop speakers. Whether it’s black disco or dubstep, LA’s is once again proud to boast a solid underground dance scen — perhaps America’s best.

And for this, you can thank in part the guys at Droid Behavior. For the last 7 years, Droid Behavior has developed into the essential resource for techno music enthusiasts — from dark, driving soundscapes to high-tech Chicago funk to Detroit-influenced minimalism. In curating all-hour, audio-visual events featuring the talents of Speedy J, Jeff Mills, Chris De Luca & Phon.O, Jimmy Edgar and Modeselektor, DROID takes a quality-over-quantity approach towards its parties, always selecting never-before-used locations and always experimenting. And oh, these parties…

Left-coasters can revel in the experience this weekend when DROID present the 28th installment of Interface featuring lauded Tim Xavier alongside Mexico’s Luis Flores’ LA debut, Mothership’s Monty Luke, and  hometown technoweights Drumcell, Audio Injection and Acid Circus. Get your fix.
