    Untold –
    Untold, aka Jack Dunning, is a pioneering UK producer, elevating dubstep to uncharted territories by combining it with grime, jungle and techno, on labels such as Hessle Audio, R & S, Clone, and his own Hemlock Recordings.  He recently released the three-part EP, Change In A Dynamic Environment, which confronts techno head on, gaining critical praise from all corners, plus sets at Berghain and the main stage of Sonar Festival in Spain, amongst others.  As a remixer, he has produced mixes for The XX, José James, Ke$ha, Boys Noize, and Moderat, among others.  http://www.untold-official.com

    John Tejada –
    Normally associated with his peers in techno from Detroit, Europe and elsewhere, Los Angeles’ John Tejada has embraced electronic music as a personal frontier, expanding on his resume as a techno recording artist as producer, remixer, DJ, and label owner.  Known for crafting a brand of subtle, musical techno, his recorded output ranges across tempo and genre lines, from chilled out affairs with spacious arrangements to pulsating, densely layered, deeply energetic tracks.  With dozens of singles and remixes to his credit, he has also produced full-length albums for Playhouse, Palette, Plug Research, deFocus, Moods and Grooves, Immigrant and A13.  Earlier this year, Tejada released The Predicting Machine, his second full-length album for KOMPAKT.  http://www.paletterecordings.com

    Sumsun –
    Sumsun is rising young dance producer Judson Rogers, hailing from West Palm Beach, Florida.  His lush, tropical take on melodic house music, that bridges experimental electronics and chillwave, has seen Rogers recently opening for Sleigh Bells on a U.S. tour.  He released his debut album, Samo Milagro, on Leaving Records in 2010. Sumsun had a featured remix on Halocyan’s Chrissy Murderbot 12″ in July of this year and the label will also be releasing a Sumsun 12″ on January 1, 2013.  http://sumsun.tumblr.com

    WMX –
    East Los Angeles local WMX will open the show with his dark and intense apocalyptic brand of glitchy techno.  He is one of the original members of So Simple Records, a collective of artists and musicians based out of Isla Vista, California. So Simple and WMX have hosted and played with international breakcore and experimental electronic musicians such as Baseck, Sonic Death Rabbit, Dr. Strangeloop, Hecate, Xanopticon, Slyten, Seppuku, Mochipet, Th’ Mole, and more.  http://soundcloud.com/wmx/tracks

    Halocyan Records –
    Los Angeles dance label Halocyan Records, born out of legendary experimental label Phthalo Records, has been steadily releasing intelligent and forward-thinking club music over the last two years.  After launching with an elaborate string of five releases by Finland’s Vladislav Delay as Sistol, the label has since focused on an ongoing 12” series featuring cutting-edge producers from all over the world such as xxxy, Chrissy Murderbot, Paul Woolford, Extrawelt, Aki Latvamäki, Sumsun, and many more to come. The past year has seen the label throw shows at South-by-Southwest, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, and an infamous boilerroom.tv episode featuring Chicago House legend DJ Pierre and a surprise appearance by the L.A.P.D.

    Medusa Lounge –
    Originally a German restaurant built by a Hollywood set designer, Medusa Lounge’s over-the-top medieval decor features taxidermy, creepy statuary, stained glass, lots of wrought iron, and vintage chandeliers.  Imagine Hogwarts relocating to the outskirts of Silver Lake with the best house and techno parties in town.
