HUSHfest: Santa Monica Pier
HUSHconcerts is back with its 4th annual summer of incredible monthly concerts on the west end of Santa Monica Pier. The shows start at 7pm in time for the sunset over the ocean. Hear some of Southern California's finest DJs playing to the world's most spectacular backdrop.
When DJing, Valida's specialty is a seamless blending of a variety of music styles – and her reputation for fearlessly fusing everything from disco to country and beyond, made her a perfect fit for KCRW, where she started on air in August, 2010.
Swazerazi (Luminous Movement)
Swazerazi means "I am the secret." The DJ alter ego of J Brave of the Luminaries offers a mixture of EDM, Bass, Trap, and Hip Hop flavors to get the crowd open on the dance floor. He seamlessly blends genres while captivating audiences with nostalgic sounds mixed with contemporary production. Every set is uniquely crafted to the moment, and from the night club to the festival stages, it's all about making the people bounce! Swazerazi is a resident DJ at the 5+ year running event the Luminous Movement in Los Angeles.
Amore One, producer, composer, and DJ, also known in some circles as Guido Corleone, the heartbroken revolutionary in the Hip Hop crew the Luminaries. Much like his taste in music. A1 has been putting together DJ sets that range from sounds that spark the uncontrollable movement of bodies – to the source material it was sampled from – to the straight-up funky, deep, rare and obscure. Seeing this man in action is like taking a trip down memory lane into the future while being locked into the present moment on the dance floor.
The Gentle Giant is the most recent moniker for the jack of all trades, master of none, Joshua Huot. This new chapter of musical composition & performance was developed after touring with Mansions On The Moon in early 2012 & performing multiple DJ sets all along the West Coast.
