Kaskade – Turn It Down (Le Castle Vania Remix)

10 Nov

I’ve been waiting for this day since I first hearth Turn It Down this summer. Dylan Eiland, better known as Le Castle Vania, remixed Kaskade‘s song and the result is uplifting Kaskade melodies and vocals dropped into a faster paced electro house bassline, I consider this to be one of Le Castle Vania‘s lighter songs but nonetheless I’ll definitely be playing this one out.

Also, Le Castle Vania will be coming to Hollywood’s favorite Friday night club, Control @ the Avalon, on December 16th along with Spencer & Hill, and DallasK. Be sure to make it out to this one, I promise it will be a show to remember. Get tickets here while they are still cheap!



Musication presents: Steve Aoki & The LA Battle of the DJs at the Avalon Hollywood Post-Event

27 Apr

Too much work to do? Stressed over finals? Don’t have enough time? It seems like everyone is grinding through the last weeks of the school year, but for the attendees of the first Musication show last night, it was a completely different story.

The night commenced with an opening set by LMU’s Doc P, aka Danny Parra, a member of the hip-hop group Random Citizens. He set the tone for the LA Battle of the DJs with a unique blend of hip-hop and electronic music, which was complimented nicely by his excellent turntablism – something none of the other DJs have in their arsenal. Next up was UCLA’s DJ Mico. He started off strong with some some bass heavy tunes that seemed to bring up the energy quite a bit. That energy level was held throughout his whole set, but there were definitely times where it was raised. Most notably, when he mixed into the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Otherside,” Afrojack’s “Take Over Control,” and Pretty Lights’ “Fly Away Another Day”. USC’s Tony Fresch was the closer for the battle, and he certainly finished it off with a bang. With some hard electro and other fist-pump worthy bangers, he gave DJ Mico a run for his money, racking up votes to beat the UCLA favorite by only 1%! Congratulations to the winner of the LA Battle of the DJs, Tony Fresch, and big ups to Doc P and DJ Mico for excellent sets all around!

Once the battle was over, I could feel the vibe of the Avalon change with anticipation of the headliner for the night, Steve Aoki. This was my 4th time seeing him, so I knew what to expect and he did not disappoint. In the midst of all of the hard electro, Mr. Aoki, being a showman, practiced his usual stage antics and seemed to be a master of puppets, controlling the crowd with his engaging mixing. As if that wasn’t enough, there was a cake (yes, a cake), a pool float, and confetti to keep things fun and interesting. Not to mention the Steve Aoki look-alike who was brought up on stage for a short period of time. Musication definitely made a great decision with selecting the appropriate headliner for their first event and I think all the Los Angeles college party people would agree! I had such a great time throughout whole night and I feel it was a unique experience for many. I can’t wait for the Musication to come! Keep an eye out for more events next school year!

Many of you in the Los Angeles area may have heard about Dada Life’s Control Friday show, at the Avalon in Hollywood, getting shut down by fire marshalls/riot police before they even went on.
