We had the pleasure of having Jerome play our 1 year anniversary LAMP event at the beginning of this year, and it was a real treat. Speaking to him briefly after the show, he had been very excited to try out some new tracks and sounds. Now we can see that the fruits of his labor over the past few months have culminated on producing a live performance.
This promises to be an exciting night with an amazing cast of characters to support.
LAMP Presents: Plastic Plates
Friday May 2nd at the Wilshire
Featuring: degradeLA artists (wilks x snbrn x modus)
RSVP ($5 before 11PM)
21+ / Doors: 10pm / Cover: $10
The Los Angeles Music Project is excited to announce Plastic Plates headlining the second installment of their quarterly music series at the Wilshire in Santa Monica. Coming off of an incredible inaugural event featuring the dominant Body High co-founder Jerome LOL, LAMP looks to continue this format throughout the rest of 2014.
Alongside Plastic Plates the main room will feature Brooks and Millar, who are primed to share a plethora of bass charged, ear smacking originals leading up to the much anticipated release of their first LP. Also joining them will be SF native LA based Templeton who is chalked full of new remixes and edits to share on the dance floor.
New to LAMP’s format is the Wilshire’s front room, which will feature some of LA’s up and coming DJ talent. This installment features artists Wilks, SNBRN and Modus from degrade.LA a music streaming, blog hybrid that seeks to expunge outdated music genres, and rather “aims to classify music by the feelings or ‘vibes’ that they evoke.”
Born in the sweat soaked brick walls of Central SAPC it rose from the venue’s ashes to begin establishing itself as one LA’s up and coming labels. In only it’s second year of existence LAMP has exceeded all of it’s expectations. Founders MR PUZL x PZB (Josh Brooks) began this journey on a loose outline with very basic goals and see it’s organic growth as the foundation of it’s progress and the key to it’s survival in the long run.
It’s been months in the making and the LAMP crew have outdone themselves once again. The label has been working away in the studio channeling their new collab between DJ/Producer Josh Brooks and his counterpart Jacob Millar. The duo, who have temporarily dubbed themselves Brooks & Millar, are set to release the first 2 track EP in the coming months and possibly a few edits and remixes to go along with it. Brooks has also been curating a new series called the LAMP Weekly Mix. The formula is straightforward. Pick 5-6 tracks for the upcoming week, discuss their merits etc and then mix them all together for a fun filled Friday release. Brooks has said he really enjoys this platform as it challenges him and pushes the boundaries of his already extensive background in mixing.
For those who missed out on last night’s festivities here are some candids to fill the void. A don’t worry another LAMP event is already in the works!
