It was another busy night in the streets of downtown Los Angeles, and we found ourselves taking the journey into La La Land at possibly our favorite local club, Exchange LA. This club holds responsibility for booking some of the world's top techno and house artists, and this night was no different in terms of quality and vibes.
After a superb set from a local opener, the decks were ready for the tenured Spanish maestro Dosem to take the reigns. This man has had an incredible run in his career, releasing music on Carl Cox's Intec and Coyu's Suara, and having a more than successful string of shows in the white isle of Ibiza. Some noteworthy tracks dropped during this set include his own tune Projection, Wade's remix of My Beat, and one of my personal favorites, the Tiger Stripes remix of This is How we do It.
After playing many of his own releases mixed in with some absolute tech heaters, it was safe to say that we were all properly warmed up for our savior, Green Velvet.
The wonderful thing about watching Green Velvet play is that the energy is consistently at a high level, and each set is a different experience in itself. Mixing in the classics like Flash with recently released club weapons like Operator by Chris Lake, you had no choice but to move with the beat. His newer tracks that were played also sparked flames on the floor, especially his collaborations with Prok & Fitch and Detlef.
Whether they have seen Curtis multiple times or if it was their first, there is no question about it that the crowd was loving every second of the music that was played that night. The vibes were on point, and it was another addition to the list of great nights that I have had at Exchange myself.
Whether you're a seasoned local or someone visiting LA looking to get a taste of the electronic music scene, you can never go wrong with Exchange LA. Keep an eye out on their webste for upcoming shows, you would never know who may be stopping by in the near future.
