"LA PLAYA TOUR feat. MINNESOTA, FREDDY TODD and OMEGA"
--------------LINE - UP--------------
- MINNESOTA // Glitch, Dubstep // Santa Cruz, CA http://soundcloud.com/minnesota
Minnesota tracks are heard in dubstep/glitch sets all over the world, including those from DJs Reid Speed, Marty Party, Blackheart, and Rastatronics, to name a few. His latest and greatest remix of “California Dreamin’” by the Mamas & the Papas has been getting tons of play — most notably by dubstep trailblazer Bassnectar a.k.a. Lorin Ashton, on his current U.S. tour.
“Quickly becoming a staple in my sets,” Ashton said about Minneosta track “Push It,” “Perfect for when I need a track that is epic and churning but also melodically hype."
- FREDDY TODD // Glitch // Detroit, MI http://soundcloud.com/freddytodd http://www.freddy-todd.com/
Freddy Todd hails from Detroit, Michigan and makes delicious beats all day. He has played in multiple metro-Detroit based bands including Ioriba, Tone Poets (live jam-tronica), Cave System (progressive indie- rock), Breezee One, and SplatterBox (live DJ and production project with DJ GK).
He plays many instruments ranging from drums/percussion to bass, guitar, mall instruments, and keys. Freddy has been touring all over the United States this past year and has shared the stage with the likes of Mux Mool, Love and Light, Nit Grit, ill.gates, EPROM, ill-esha, Lynx and Janover, Boombox, Samples, Fisk, Fresh2Death, Ana Sia, An-ten- nae, Beats Antique, Ghost Stepper (Lotus's side project), Gladkill, Lokae, Mochipet, Govinda, Shigeto, Hood Internet, Elfkowitz, Lorn, Deastro, Inkface, Lord Scrummage, and countless others.
- OMEGA // Dubstep // Denver, CO http://soundcloud.com/omegadubstep http://omegadubstep.com/
Omega is a bass music producer and DJ, currently residing in Denver, Colorado, US. He first discovered electronic music through the big beat, IDM, and industrial scenes during the late '90s, and bought his first pair of turntables in 2000. Over the years his tastes have also included jungle, progressive breaks, psychedelic trance, and dub - and in the last couple of years have settled into dubstep and related forms of bass music. Though DJing will always hold a special place in his heart, recently writing and producing tunes has become Omega's primary obsession.
Omega performances are a hybrid between a DJ set and a live performance - using a laptop running Ableton Live, with several MIDI controllers, effects processors, and synths. An Omega set will always include many original tunes, remixes, edits, and mashes, with a heavy emphasis on live improvisation and manipulation. His energy and stage presence, combined with his monster tunes, inevitably whip a crowd into a frenzy of bassed out bliss
Opening acts TBA soon!
