“Our passion for showcasing cutting edge experiences continues. While our DJ’s set the mood with a range of dance music styles visit our vinyl market, mingle, and enjoy the modern atmosphere of the Downtown – Independent.”
-Tara LaPlante

Knyphy (Futra) LA
Knyphy has been flexing a broad variety of sounds as a DJ since the late 90′s. An original member of the SMOG crew and now a FUTRA resident, his style pushes the boundaries of underground house, dubstep, grime, garage, and anything else that fits the moment.

Ricky Def (Futra) LA
Carefully attuned to the established and emergent genres of dance music, Ricky Def draws from house, techno, and UK garage to forge a sound that is as provocative as it is gratifying. A throwback to DJ’s a generation ago, he eschews digital artifice to rely on his coveted collection of vinyl and acetates. A stalwart of the LA underground since 2006, Ricky Def continues to execute his craft and compel dance floors with his impeccable sound.

Duncan Whiteley (Reinhardt Records) LONDON
Duncan Whiteley is the production guise of Alex Oxley. A music and art project that began in 2006 when he was based in Berlin. Following a dormant period Duncan Whiteley is active once again inspired by his move from London to Los Angeles. Noise, techno, and electronica are prominent influences of his DJ sets and record label Reinhardt Tapes, which strives towards these genres as benchmarks.
