Space Yacht's Cinco De Mayo with Pinnacle Group & Boogiemade

May 7, 2015 -

This past Tuesday the Daily Beat crew had the chance to hit up Space Yacht to celebrate Drinko De Cinco De Deepo De Mayo courtesy of Pinnacle Group and Boogiemade clothing.

Space Yacht is renown for showcasing breakthrough EDM acts every week at the Golden Box nightclub. Their knack for a stranger underground sound has attracted urban music lovers to this artsy destination in the center of Hollyweird. We found out about this particular night through Pinnacle Group; a promotion company and artist agency that has been making some noise in the SoCal EDM scene. This week they took over the Space Yacht by bringing out Drezo and Nightowls with support from the Boogiemade crew.


We walked through the back parking lot to find a peculiar entrance welcoming us with a narrow patio lined with plants, couches, and a messy chalkboard. Downstairs we had a chance to catch James from 2TONEDISCO as he dropped a funky house set with a bootylicious twist.

After grabbing a round of Coronas, we bounced around the floor in an awe of hypnotism from the abstract burlesque dancers and spacey illumination spread by the disco balls. Finally the anonymous Nightowls duo stepped into the cage to begin their set of wubby dubby house. Along with their entire catalogue they eventually dropped their remix of Deadmau5’s Some Chords while giving a shout out to Caked Up claiming that the Vegas rip-offs are “Nightowls #1 fan”[see the recent scandal here]. By far the most exciting part of the performance was when they threw down their latest track that released today on Buygore Records; a psychotic collaboration with the almighty Jameston Thieves entitled Closer.

As if Nightowls wasn’t killing it enough they ended up being joined on stage by Goldplate for a special B2B performance. His ghetto influenced house music aligned perfectly with Nightowl’s turnt up attitude that quickly amplified the club a few notches.


Soon enough Drezo approached the booth followed by none other than the kid who’s not actually named after a Pokemon even though we’d like to believe it; of course we’re talking about Ghastly. Their B2B set slowly halted the Earth’s rotation with a frenzy of cue hits and bass drops that melted the clubs pupils into an array of deep darkness. Drezo’s been on our radar ever since DJ Hanzel teased us with their unreleased collaboration. Needless to say the set dropped the Space Yacht von deeper with his ground shaking dark house beats.

Drezo’s deceptively minimal productions reacted perfectly to the tracks that Ghastly brought to the table which were much more playful and aggressive. Their stage presence sucked in everyone who was grooving on the dance floor with a constant excitement building with each new track. Ghastly’s remix of NGHTMRE & Slander’s Warning is by far one of our favorite recent releases and it was extremely satisfying hearing the man himself throw down the vicious track that’s been taking the internet by storm this past week.

Finally when Drezo & Ghastly’s set came to a close we were hit with yet another surprise that was truly a Cinco De Mayo Miracle (◕,,,◕). Making themselves comfortable in the DJ booth was none other than Dr. Fresch and SNBRN. These boys have been dominating the recent festival circuit with slots at CRSSD, Coachella, EDC, and Lightning In A Bottle. SNBRN’s sunset house vibes blended a tropical feel into hip hop influenced deep house. On the flipside, Fresch aimed in a more G-House direction with an emphasis on melodic content and genre-less diversity.

During their set we noticed someone walking through the dance floor with several boxes of Dominos pizza. We paid no mind assuming it was for one of the artists or for a table. Instead the guy walked up to the center of the dance floor and opened the boxes for anyone to grab. In our eyes that melty slice of pepperoni was the true headliner of the night.


After SNBRN and Dr. Fresch we were hit with yet another surprise with Josie from Candyland stepping up to the plate. Her style has always had a ton of dubstep influence but went in a mean trap direction over the last few years. Here at the Space Yacht the wubs came out as she spun a ton of night bass house, keeping true to the vibes of the night.


Finally Buygore’s Twiitch closed out the night with an even more aggressive take on house music. By this time the club was settling down but some continued the party including Van Jazmin, a professional artist who enjoyed the night by creating live sketching of club goers and environment.



Many of the people involved in the EDM industry experience the massive venues and raging clubs on a regular basis. Space Yacht on the other hand delivers a way more toned down experience for fans and artists to kickback and socialize under the Tuesday night haze. We wanted to thank Pinnacle Group and Boogiemade for the invite and we look forward to catching some more of their events in the future!
