Search By Tag: La Riots

“The Drop” is the first official original from the Riots, mixing new musical experimentation with years of road-tested club confidence. Endlessly kinky riffs and jacking kickdrums have already made it a festival favorite, and it comes backed by two mindbending remixes from Duke Dumont and a stomping four-on-the-floor take from TJR. B-side “Bombah” is a planet rock party starter, flipped by Deadfish don Mowgli and Nadastrom’s Dave Nada. Yet even with such a dynamic remix lineup it’s all about the original tunes, setting the stage for many more LA Riots firestarters to come!”

L.A duo aptly named LA Riots just released their new Spring 2010 mixtape as the 11th edition of the Fools Gold podcast series Foolscast.

“Some techy, jacking (and seasonally appropriate!) jams for that ass. New tunes from our friends at BNR, Sound Pellegrino, and many more, along with a teaser of the Riots’ new one “Bombah” at the end. Enjoy!”

They included the mesmerizing Camel remix of the Discobelle Records release from Jamtech Foundation.

The Coachella festival is starting today in Indio and to promote the festival, L.A. Times asked LA Riots to make an exclusive DJ mix of artists performing at Coachella this year. We would love to be there but somehow they forgot to send over our tickets, I guess they got lost in the mail or something… Maybe next year.

This is what LA Riots told the L.A. Times about the mix:

“We chose artists that we feel directly relate to what’s going on in electronic music today. It was pretty easy with the lineup at this year’s Coachella because so many of the artists are staples in our sets. Every single song we used in this mix we’ve played in the clubs recently.”
