EPR at DIRTYLOUD. I mean...DIRTYLOUD AT EPR!!!

You guys. OMG. Dirtyloud is playing at EPR. You like, don't even know. Like, I'm really excited. Like really REALLY excited. You know why? BECAUSE I *$&#@ING LOVE THEM.

Once upon a time, I was playing a New Years show with a certain EPR resident a few years ago. Until then, I'd only ever had the uber-opener slots before the clubs were even open, so I'd never played in front of an actual crowd before. And here I was, closing a New Years show in front of a packed crowd. Everyone was going nuts. My versus partner was rather wasted, and was offering no help. My nerves were a wreck. My hands were shaking. And what did I open with? THIS.



For a while, Dirtyloud was my little secret. Their stuff was out for a bit before it actually started hitting the charts, and when it did, I was excited that people would finally KNOW these songs that I loved when I'd play them out.

They had quite a unique style. in my opinion, they are the epitome of "progressive electro." They are actually one of my biggest inspirations, because they perfectly blend heavy, driving, buzzy, glitchy electro with pretty chords that get stuck in your head. Prime example: the second half of "Trash House Music." Check out those chords, man!



I feel like all of their songs are my favorite songs. Like this one!



And this one! I mean, who doesn't love big booty bitches??



And this one, that I really like because it's *kinda* like a love song, without all the mushy parts that make me hate love songs.



And of course, their latest track to tear up the charts, "Dae Guetta."



As for freebies, you like those? I LIKE THOSE. Get "Selecta" for free right from their Soundcloud.



Want more free stuff? HOW ABOUT A WHOLE MIXX?? (FYI: there's a free download link if you view the track on their Soundcloud page!)



So if you haven't gathered already, Dirtyloud is playing at EPR, with opening support by yours truly and my buddies Girls N Boomboxes. This show will PWN.

Jays One Finally Gets A Fan Page and Releases a Free EP!!

Yeah, that's right. I said FREE!!!

I've been pestering him to get a fan page for some time now. I mean, he's pretty popular. He plays to 1000+ people every week, and I just *know* that if he were to get a fan page, he would soon be able to bask in the glory of having more fans on Facebook than there are shutter shades at an LMFAO concert.

So he got one. And to break it in, he released the Freebass EP (artwork by yours truly!), which you can download for FREE on his Soundcloud. GET IT.

A walk down memory lane...

There’s a lot you probably don’t know about EPR.

You probably know it as a party that says to hell with the work week, where there’s always a guaranteed good time, a room filled with enthusiastic people, and great music. But to us, the people who make EPR possible, it’s a lot more. We throw one hell of a party, and nothing is more fun than the behind the scenes shenanigans that go on every Wednesday, unbeknownst to you.

So, in honor of our 200th show, I’d like to showcase some of the finest moments of the EPR fam tomfoolery.


This is me not only before I got cool and became a DJ, but also before I lost those damn bangs. Why did nobody tell me!??!?!


Shenanigans...



Can't forget wes...

DRRN before his haircut


That flyer...WHY?!?!?!??!



Josh's model impression


Quite a fun line to be in, I must say.


Our first Lovevolution!!!!


The original ladies of EPR


This has always been one of my favorite pictures from EPR (even though I'm not in it). It so perfectly embodies that era of EPR.


And then we moved to the Metro. Look at our setup. How primitive!


And then we were like, "We need go go dancers." Check out Ally before she was rave-cool.


The crowd got much bigger once we moved out of the basement.


And then we moved to 525. The shenanigans didn't stop.


Me, the gogo ladies, and Stereo Heroes!


Mustard Pimp annihilating the dance floor. This was the most people we'd ever fit into 525.


Ally and Dylan getting crazy, as always...


So then we moved to 715. Clearly by then, we'd lost our minds.


We upgraded to those fancy shmancy LED screens, DRRN got a haircut, and Ally started DJing.


Ally's last time dancing at EPR :(


And here we are, the modern-day EPR fam!

We've come a long way from a basement in Berkeley to 1,000+ every week, and we couldn't do it without you!!!

Here's to 200 more...

Who's ready to hear some drum & bass on the main stage? I AM!!!

I'm quite excited to FINALLY see Sub Focus. I was supposed to see him on two separate occasions years ago, and something happened so that he couldn't play BOTH times. I was frustrated. But now he's here! *cheers*

I was quite amazed/amused to find out that Sub Focus did a track with Coco, the lovely offspring of Sting. It kinda weird. She...sounds like him. I dig.



A non sequitur: I don't really know how to feel about the fact that Sub Focus comes up before Rocky Horror Picture Show when you type "Timewarp" into Youtube.



Want a free goodie? Check out his fan page for a free download! Don't forget to share ;)



Come early, this show WILL sell out. To ensure entry, get your presales HERE! Don't snooze, don't lose!

See you all Wednesday!

JACK BEATS!! AT EPR? YES!



When our noble leader told us that we were having Jack Beats out in the spring, at first I was in complete and utter disbelief. As the date crawled closer and closer, I started to realize how big of a deal this is. Not only are they a huge act, but their remix of “Drop the Pressure” by Project Bassline holds some special memories for me.

Remember Blake’s on Telegraph? That bar/restaurant with the dingy basement that used to house hundreds of EDM events and rock shows? You know, the birthplace of EPR? “Drop the Pressure” reminds me of that place. When EPR was first taking off in the summer of 2009, back when the sparse crowd of our closest friends transformed into an uncontrollable rager in a basement, this song was everywhere. I remember driving to Blake’s from the city, carpool or not, rain or shine, despite school or work on Thursday morning, parking waaaaaay down Durant, and walking to the place in that eerie yellow light. As I’d approach the door, I could literally feel the floor vibrating beneath my feet. I’d come in and walk down the stairs, and that song would be playing (that, or MSTRKRFT’s “Bounce”).

That was the summer I threw my first rave. That track was in my set at my very first gig EVER.

And then, at EDC in Las Vegas last summer, that song was a brief moment of clarity among the chaos. On Saturday night, the place wasn’t really that packed...until 50,000 people showed up at midnight. I was like, “Where did all these people come from?” I didn’t even know where I was, until I heard that song, and realized I was at the Neon Garden stage. I looked out at the crowd, and realized how truly massive that event was. Good times. Good times, indeed.

So, you see, folks...this is kind of a big deal for me. And you know what else is pretty cool? I get to see them perform at the Ultra Music Festival, just days before I get to open for them in San Francisco.

F&%# YES.

So. Next week at EPR (not tomorrow): Jack Beats, with opening sets by yours truly, the infamous Jays One and B33son, and sets in the side room by Kirin Rider, DRRN, Chronologix, M3RC, and D Menis. Tickets will be on sale at EPR 195 tomorrow from 9-11pm across from the ticket booth. Don’t snooze, don’t lose! This show WILL sell out. See you there! :)
