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.

Cubicolor & Anjunadeep Present: BRAINSUGAR

Cubicolor present their debut album – ‘BRAINSUGAR’ – to be released on September 16th on Anjunadeep (“One of the hottest electronic labels in the world” ~ Hype Machine).
Cubicolor have emerged as one of the most exciting acts to come through the European underground in recent times. Championed by Pete Tong as one of his artists to watch, praised by Mixmag, Spin, Clash, and DJ Mag, and supported by a host of heavyweight DJs, Cubicolor look set to break through with their anticipated debut LP.
Their striking and alternative sound developed across a string of acclaimed EPs on Anjunadeep and a remix for Howling (Âme’s Frank Wiedemann & Ry X) on Monkeytown Records, which has found it’s way into the sets of many A-list DJs, including Sasha, George Fitzgerald, Joris Voorn, and Mano Le Tough.
Having launched in 2014 with two members, Dutch producers Ariaan Olieroock and Peter Kriek, Cubicolor now welcome British vocalist, and former Duologue front-man Tim Digby-Bell into the band as their third member, following much loved collaborations on ‘Falling’ and ‘Mirror Play.’ In his time with Duologue, Tim produced, co-wrote and sang on two records acclaimed by the likes of The Guardian, NME, DIY Mag, and The Line Of Best Fit.
On ‘BRAINSUGAR’ we hear an evolution in Cubicolor’s sound across a host of diverse and infectious tracks, combining beautiful songwriting with brilliantly cohesive clarity, echoing their influences: Radiohead, Massive Attack and Moderat to name a few. Tim’s lyrical depth and haunting vocal style shine throughout the album, which features eight vocal tracks and four instrumentals.
The LP’s first single, ‘Falling’ is a cascading piece of melancholic house music, which has amassed over 4 million plays on Spotify, topped Beatport’s Electronica chart, and picked up features on multiple global specialist radio stations including BBC Radio 1, BB6 Music, KCRW, KEXP, SiriusXM Chill, 1Live, Rai 2, 3FM, and Studio Brussels.
Released alongside the announcement of the album, ‘Dead End Thrills’ is a fusion of Cubicolor’s trademark sounds, blending trippy atmospheric electronica, layered with textured melodies and Tim’s poignant vocals.
Throughout August and September 2016, Cubicolor bring their well-honed electronic sound to venues large and small across North America for a DJ tour, including a string of underground club shows and notablefestival performances at Electric Zoo and Nocturnal Wonderland where they perform on Anjunadeep label stages alongside the likes of Âme, George Fitzgerald, Lane 8, HVOB, Henrik Schwarz and Yotto. Cubicolor are currently developing a full live show to be launched later this year.
‘BRAINSUGAR’ is set to be the seventh artist album to be released on Anjunadeep, an A&R hotbed celebrated for the release of debut LPs from Dusky and Lane 8. With 250+ single releases and a string of iTunes #1 albums and compilations under its belt, the label has distinguished itself as one of the scene’s leading imprints. It’s earning glowing coverage everywhere from Resident Advisor to Pitchfork, whilst receiving heavy support on BBC Radio 1 from Annie Mac, Pete Tong, B. Traits and Phil Taggart.

[Event Review] Jonas Rathsman and Illich Mujica @ House Of Yes 8/5/16

House Of Love was a sold out event this past Friday starring the dark and sexy sounds of Illich Mujica and Jonas Rathsman.  The SBB Squad arrived at the House of Yes ready to explore every flavor of love, and we were certainly not disappointed!

We danced all night to the delicious beats of our man Illich Mujica, who specializes in Tech House and spreading joy wherever he goes with his amazing energy and equally incredible talent.

Venezuelan-born Illich always brings a variation of emotions to every set, and he never ceases to blow us away with the perfect mixture of light and darkness that he provides the dance floor with at each event he commits to.  His unique sound and flavor are always a true pleasure.

Swedish DJ, Jonas Rathsman, has become legendary in the Tech House space and brought his notorious combination of raw, tribal beats with mechanical sound infusion to the table at House of Love.  The squad couldn’t get enough of his set last weekend; we were all utterly entranced by his magical mixing.  We cannot wait to see this genius spin again soon!

Aside from the top-notch tunage, the House of Love brought us cuddle puddles, bubbles, aerial performers, and a beautiful crowd to enjoy the event with.
