Red Bull Sound Select should just run for mayor of Los Angeles this of November as they are already running this town… Thursday’s Mayan Theater edition of RBSS was another stellar showing (topped off with free pizza and cookies to those in attendance, well played!)
Freshly minted signee to Boysnoize Records, Taskforce brought the beats to start the night off. The Minneapolis drum machine wizard conjured the crowd into a dance party highlighted by personal favorite, “Police Brace For Violence”.
Heading up north, Toronto native, River Tiber, hit the stage next. Vibey and chill, this Canadian (liked by BADBADNOTGOOD and Drake) laid an emotional haze out and over the packed Mayan.
Finally, Aussie DJ/producer Flume (Harley Streten) who is no stranger to B3SCI or myself (seeing him 4 times now). Flume’s 2013 self-titled LP was outstanding and considered widely one of that year’s best. For the set, Flume played all the hits, some new stuff and a delivered a very special guest; bringing out Andrew Wyatt (of Miike Snow) for an incredible performance of new single “Some Minds”. Flume always brings it (light show, mix, overall production). It was one giant party in DTLA.
