Justin Jay Sets Sail to LA at The Roxy 2/27


This Saturday, Los Angeles based DJ and producer, Justin Jay, will be playing a sold out show at the Roxy for his beloved hometown. Vocalist, Josh Taylor, and guitarist, Benny Bridges, both of whom are featured on the track, “Karma,” will also accompany him.

This will be the second stop on the Fantastic Voyage Tour, which is scheduled to stop throughout North America and Australia. Justin Jay’s ultimate goal is to bring his well-known house party vibes on this tour. He mentioned,

“Over the past couple of months, I started throwing a bunch of house parties in LA. House parties are really special for DJ’s because we can play songs we normally never get to play: from the tracks that are too weird and quirky for the big clubs/festivals, to the songs that are too cheesy and feel good for the cool-kid warehouse shindigs.

I like pushing myself to play crazy forward thinking music, but by the end of the night, I also want everyone (including myself) smiling, laughing and having a good time. Sometimes the songs that make me smile the biggest are also cool in their own cheesy way.

‘Fantastic Voyage’ is a song by the funk band, Lakeside and the name of my tour. Listen to it, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.”

Within the past year, Justin Jay has thrown down some of the most memorable sets of 2015. Releases such as the Mom, I Graduated EP and Momentum EP have captured the attention and excited fans and industry peers alike. It is without a doubt that this tour will fully embody what Justin Jay is contributing to music scene today while also reflecting what he will bring in the future.

Check out his Fantastic Voyage House Party mix to get a taste of what’s to come!

Enchanted Forest Gathering Releases 2015 Recap Video


Known for continuously breaking the future elite of the underground with some of the biggest international names in bass music, Enchanted Forest Gathering is best characterized by four principles — uniting sacred, sexy, silly and saucy elements for an experience like none other! Previous lineup installments have boasted a standout musical roster featuring artists such as KOAN Sound, Random Rab, Liquid Stranger, Phutureprimitive, Ott, Papadosio, Desert Dwellers and Opiuo. This year’s lineup will be announced in March and will include over 50 artists across four stages.

To ignite your excitement for 2016, Enchanted Forest Gathering has released the 2015 After Video, produced by Megan Stone. The video showcases the plethora of activities that await surrounding the lush landscape of Black Oak Ranch.

Building upon a reputation for eclectic tastes in electronic and live music, Enchanted Forest Gathering has evolved into a festival that fosters the growth of the conscious movement community. What began as a renegade series of impromptu instruction has now become an interactive component of the festival experience as Enchanted Forest Gathering places yoga, dance and flow arts front-and-center, including a mini-flow arts festival as main fixture of the festival. Past teachers have included the world-renowned KK Ledford (Fire & Nectar, Order & Chaos ~ Asana and Astrology), Rigzin, Holly Baade/The Joyful Warrior, Forest Schrodt, Jonathan Livingston Baxter, Kandice Korves-Kaus, Nova and many more. This year’s stellar yoga, movement, and flow teachers will be announced in March along with the music lineup.

Additionally, Enchanted Forest Gathering plays host to a bold educational forum throughout the day including four types of workshop zones providing guests an opportunity to broaden their horizons in such subjects as Spirituality & Science, Nourishment & Nutrition, Sexuality & Relationships, and Permaculture & Ancestral Arts.


With a mere 245 attendees in 2010 to 3,000 anticipated this year, the rapid growth of Enchanted Forest Gathering speaks volumes to the festival’s unique offerings of innovative micro-environments and peak experiences. Revelers may find their journey leads them to interactive spaces, which include The Nectar Temple – a next level healing area, the late night tea lounge that features live jazz trios, and the Crystal Dome – an amalgamation of healing and wondrous stones collected from around the world, a late night comedy stage or the visionary art studio.

At its new larger home on Black Oak Ranch, the festival will expand its offerings to include a silent disco and day care services among other key additions. This is a perfect homage to the historical land of the Grateful Dead, Wavy Gravy, Earthdance Festival, and the famed Camp Winnarainbow.

Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming lineup announcements and more event news coming soon. Stay in the know with event updates by subscribing to the event newsletter via the website and be sure to RSVP through the Enchanted Forest Gathering 2016 Facebook event page!

April 7-9, Buraka will bring their Lisbon beats to Los Angeles’ The Roxy, San Francisco’s 1015 Folsom, and finally, New York City’s Webster Hall. If unfamiliar with their live show, the band’s raucous performance has created an iconic reputation amongst fans and peers alike, with superstar producer Diplo citing the band as the direct inspiration behind his Major Lazer live show. Playing sold-out concert arenas, festivals including Glastonbury and Rosklide, and sweltering club nights alike, Buraka have established themselves as one of the most quintessential acts in modern electronic music.
Over the last few years, the group was responsible for more than 800 shows, 3 albums,1 EP and the creation of viral genre “zouk bass,” feats that would introduce the band to the entire world and establish them as a household name in thier native Portugal. The 2013 documentary ‘Off The Beaten Track’ provided additional insight into the band’s career and features exclusive interviews with collaborator M.I.A, Santigold, Skream, Diplo, and more.

The wild Angolan Kuduro beat started to burst in the Lisbon clubs in the last years and Buraka Som Sistema – AKA BrankoRiotConductorKalaf and Blaya – merged it with the electronic music from the 21st century, giving birth to a completely new sound. “From Buraka to the World” (2006)“Black Diamond” (2009) and “Komba” (2011), defined the bands’ path. In 2014 “Buraka” is released. The single “Stoopid”, directed by Vhils, has more than one million views and the journey by the Global Club Music is also done with themes like “Vuvuzela”, “Parede” and “Do Me Now”, amongst others.
