The Power of Music and Squeaky Klean #27

With Summer Fridays gone, the weeks have begun to slow down and feel longer.  The driving force that keeps our weeks rolling forward positively and productively year round is this: Klean tunage. The Stop Breathe Bump family is constantly connected to one another through music, and its undeniable power never ceases to amaze us. When you’re feeling murderous on a Monday, or tired on a Tuesday, you can simply turn on you and your friends’ playlists via a plethora of platforms and instantly feel the peace and energy of the connection to the quality tunes that strum your heart strings and sooth your soul.  Music can touch you in places where words cannot even begin to penetrate.

Visiting a friend of mine who’s been sick at home for weeks last night, I turned on Squeaky Klean #27 and danced about the bedroom with her. A smile grew upon her face and I could feel the energy within her instantly shift toward the brighter side of life.  The incredible beats, woven perfectly together in this mixtape is what gets us up every morning.  Gets us moving, working hard, spreading joy and light to others.  This is what makes our world go ’round, and it is my pleasure to share the deep and tantalizing tunes of Klean’s latest mix with you all today to carry you seamlessly into the weekend!

Get Lost Returns to Los Angeles on September 25 at The Park Plaza

As the summer days wayne into fall and the playa dust settles Crosstown Rebel’s notorious party globe-trotting series Get Lost, returns to LA for another blissful balmy afternoon, with label boss and aural mystic Damian Lazarus once again curating the soundtrack of future’s past with the help of some world-class selectors.

For September’s spectacle, Damian Lazarus will join forces with master of the twilight hour and conductor of the All Day I Dream community Lee Burridge for a marathon B2B set. It’s a heavyweight session for the heads, two of dance music’s most celebrated and idiosyncratic selectors combining their curatorial arts, communities and production wizardry to transform a slice of LA for an afternoon, welcoming dreamers, dancers and cavaliers to get lost at one of the most celebrated parties on earth.

Opening the afternoon’s proceedings with a special extended live set will be decorated leaders of the global underground Dance Spirit, a duo who effortlessly fuse futuristic minimal techno with deeply emotive layers in their performances and productions alike. Their universal prowess will prove to be a perfect fit for the Crosstown crowd once again as they step to the helm with their vibe-driven mastery.
