Among others, the 26-act festival will feature the miraculous fingers and hands of turntable crew Invisbl Skratch Piklz, who have recently reformed to showcase their acrobatic scratching skills. Also: Odd Future affiliates the Internet (Syd the Kid, Matt Martians); L.A. abstract beat producer Nosaj Thing; the masterful performer Daedelus and his Monome; Dntel (a.k.a. Jimmy Tamborello of the Postal Service); bedroom electronica singer/producer Baths; instrumental hip hop producer/visual artist Teebs; and the utterly beguiling futuristic dub of Ras G.
Moo says that for a city that's producing so much innovative electronic music, it's woefully underrepresented on the festival front.
"There does not currently exist a serious electronic music festival that happens in the city of Los Angeles on an annual basis,"
he says. "The most notable electronic music festival in Los Angeles is Hard. Not to take anything away from what they're doing, but that's definitely more of a mainstream approach to electronic music. We are trying to showcase the underground side of all of this, and really present the sound of Los Angeles, to a large degree, and the sound of the West Coast."
