Life After Dusk Nocturnal Wonderland 2013
5. Flux Pavilion
Saturday, October 12th
Bassology celebrates its one year anniversary of bringing optimum spine-rattling drum & bass and dubstep to Orange County thanks to Innervision Event's partnership with Bassrush (one of Insomniac's many brands). Headlining the event is Flux Pavilion, who is currently on his 35-stop "Freeway Tour" with special guest Cookie Monsta as opening support in OC. Following the success of his fourth EP Blow the Roof Flux (a.k.a Joshua Steele) is slated to release a new EP this month so expect lots of new music from the English producer. Most notably known for his hit "I Can't Stop" which is played out everywhere from video games to football stadiums today this legendary dub DJ is still more relevant than ever working with artists like Dan le Sac, Scroobius Pi to Major Lazer.
4. Jeremy Olander & Fehrplay
Thursday, October 3rd
The Eric Prydz proteges Jeremy Olander & Fehrplay bring the infamous Pryda Friends Tour to OC as part of Element Thursdays at Sutra in Costa Mesa this week. The first leg of the Pryda Friends tour was so successful that the label mates added 11 dates this fall including directly opening support for Eric's EPIC 2.0 shows. After the first guests takeover on Prydz's EPIC Radio show fans have gotten a taste of the Swedish and Norwegian producers' style and are yearning for more. Known for their melodic take on progressive house, these young artists are the next rising stars in dance music. Don't expect a lot of drops however, as in true Pryda fashion their back-to-back impromptu sets and chemistry on stage is sure to take you on a musical journey of what we hope is the future of dance music.
