I recently took a trip out to LA to dj a party in the “Hills” and here are some pics from the weekend. I had a great time and I met some great people. I have to say, I have not djed a party that live in awhile…
Always a treat, we stayed at The Standard in Downtown LA. I really can’t imagine staying anywhere else, this place has it all….from partying, to good looking people, to just a really insane atmosphere that makes you feel like a rockstar.
Our first stop was FatBeats on Melrose Ave. I had to go ahead and take a pic in the infamous Dj Booth (what dj would’nt?) Man, I would love to dj in there for an event one day…so much history in that record shop. It didn’t hurt that J Dilla’s (RIP) dj was in there playing jam after jam…real cool cat, I wish I could do that all day.
Our next stop was The Hundreds, one of my favorite brands, as well as one of my favorite blogs. Bobby and Ben Hundreds are a perfect example of a successful duo that run a dope street clothing store. This was my first visit, of many…I hope.
I can’t remember the name of this restaurant, but the Sushi and Sake was off the hook. My boy (travel buddy and fellow dj) RedSoda introduced me to a gang of cool peeps from LA and also a couple from Houston that traveled to LA for the weekend.
If you get a chance, check out Purplestuff TV. Its a online sketch comedy show created by my boy Brandon (he is on the top far right, ironically, wearing a purple shirt). Just imagine The Chappelle Show meets SNL, the best of both worlds, its a good look.
The main party was something out of a movie or one of these TV shows where everyone looks rich and crispy. I had the best time djing for these people. They seemed to dance to everything I played, and most important of all….they kept my cup full. The view is unlike anything I have ever seen, or unlike any foreground I have ever djed in….a great experience.
Shout out to my boy Dj Kion for bringing the equipment, and for putting down a dope mix as well.
Another view from the house…like I said, crazy scenery!
Although I didn’t get to do a whole lot of sight seeing, every time I hang out on the roof top of The Standard, that just seems to give me all I need. This is another place than I need a gig in LA. With the cool weather, plentiful drinks, and pretty women….my job as a dj comes easy. Its just the soundtrack to the easy life.
