Weekly Selections: Hessle Audio at Prototype, Mathew Johnson in LA, Sub Club x Exit Festival
Our top weekly event picks from around the globe.
There are seemingly countless options for quality underground sounds this weekend in Los Angeles. We recommend kicking off the weekend at Prototype at Lot 613, where the entirety of the Hessle Audio crew will touch down for a special stop on their 10-year anniversary world tour. The UK-based, genre-bending label and collective, comprised of Ben UFO, Pangea, and Pearson Sound, will perform an extended 6-hour set. Presales are strongly recommended for the party; get them here.
On Saturday night, the legendary Mathew Johnson, affectionately known in the XLR8R offices as “the Mozart of techno,” will touch down for his first live gig in Los Angeles since 2008. Johnson will be playing the Into The Woods party at a proper warehouse location, with details to be shared with ticket holders the night of the event. With support provided by Michael Walsh and Maheras, this one’s not to be missed. Tickets and more info can be found here.
And across the pond at the seminal Scottish venue Sub Club, Exit Festival will be taking over the Club’s Subculture series in promotion of their No Sleep stage at the festival in July. The party will feature residents Harri & Domenic (who will also play Sub Club’s takeover at Exit this summer), as well as special guest Honey Dijon. Tickets are available here.
