Kaytranada, Groundislava, Jerome LOL 

When: Thu., Oct. 31, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
Rotture will be the hub for raved-out, costumed revelry tonight, as LA's Wedidit crew comes to town. Hailing from Venice Beach, Groundislava combines Balearic beats and airy synths to create a hazy yet energetic electronic experience, evoking Goa and trance if those two styles had been invented in Second Life. Songs like "Cool Party" are reverb-heavy and at times downtempo, flirting with new age before building toward progressive house and trap. Kaytranada employs a more reverential pop-culture sensibility in his mixes, nonetheless laden with non-sequiturs and '90s R&B nods. Jerome LOL belongs in the WTF category of Internet artists-turned musicians, with dance music that incorporates cheekily abrasive samples executed with post-ironic affiliation with the machine. If you are planning on hitting the dance floor, consider this the event to max out your serotonin levels with lots of candy. WYATT SCHAFFNER
