DECKast #55 x Open Heir
The good buds, Dylan and Jonny, curators of the communal occurrence Out of Body in Los Angeles are prepping for their second party this coming Friday the 13th in Glendale at L.A.'s best club for underground music (according to L.A. Weekly), Complex. After their recent success in hosting Mike Huckaby & MNDSGN, the OoB crew brings on a new promising bill including a live set from midwest acid electronic technician, D'Marc Cantu; Berlin via SF/LA transplant and soulful upbeat dance musician, label head, and DJ, Alland Byallo; also Los Angeles Non Projects member, Anenon. They will be supported by Thats Deck contributor and RWD.FM DJ Force Placement as well as co-founder of Out of Body, Dylan aka Open Heir, who will be starting things off for the evening. You can purchase tickets over at Resident Advisor and find more information here.
Open Heir is currently soundcloud-less but was kind enough to contribute a short and sweet mix for the DECKast series. This mix delves deep into the euphoric and OUT OF BODY sensations of some proper dance rhythms and alluring quotes from some London dance maniac and Barbara Walters on the subject of "raves" and "the underground". Read what he had to say about the mix below...
"With out of body, we somewhat cheekily refer to our shows as "communal occurrences", which should communicate that most of our bookings are best enjoyed in a dark club surrounded by 200 really nice strangers. Meanwhile, a lot of the music I've been working on is insular, shifty, and kind of odd --stuff that's probably best for listening to while cleaning your studio. This mix meets somewhere in the middle. If you like it, come through to out of body's upcoming show at Complex, Friday 3.13., featuring D'Marc Cantu & Alland Byallo."
