FOOTLOOSE Presents 3rd Anniversary Beach Party Pt. 2 ** DROOG / LOUIE FRESCO / ROBBIE AKBAL **
DROOG (Culprit / Corsstown Rebels)
DROOG is the DJ collective of Andrei Osyka, Brett Griffin and Justin Sloe. From their start 6 years ago, DROOG has steadily built a reputation as one of the leading purveyors of forward thinking dance music, in Los Angeles and beyond.
The collective have become known for their respected parties that through the years featured leading international house and techno talent, from Magda, Jamie Jones, Steve Bug and Martin Buttrich to Dixon, all four memebers of Visionquest, Nicolas Jaar, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky and beyond. Droog have also masterminded showcase parties at
WMC, DEMF, BPM and Sonar festivals. Between 2007 and 2011, Droog had held down a residency at Avalon Hollywood, one of the biggest clubs in the US. At Avalon, they have had the chance to play alongside influences such as Richie Hawtin, Lee Burridge, Steve Lawler, Damian
Lazarus, Tiefschwarz, Mr. C, Booka Shade, MANDY, Matthew Dear.
In 2009 the trio made a leap into a new territory by launching an LA-based record label, Culprit, which has built steady momentum with successful releases from Matt Tolfrey & Inxec, Hot Natured, Lee Foss, SECT (Soul Clap, Tanner Ross & Sergio Santos), Subb-an, M A N I K and others and joining the ranks of the leaders of the new school of
underground dance music. Having toured the US and Mexico extensively, Droog have since expanded with European and South American shows. In October of 2010, Droog made a Fabric debut and since then have covered
the globe, from Moscow to Lima, Ibiza to Costa Rica, Berlin and Paris. Recent new DJ debuts included Brazil, Tunisia and Portugal.
More recently the Los Angeles collective has been focused on production work, with original material for Crosstown Rebels (released in September to wide acclaim) and Supernature (to be released in summer of 2012), remixes for Culprit, NOICE, Murmur, My Favorite Robot, Adjunct Audio, Noir Music and Get Physical. Other high profile projects include mixing the second installment of the Rebel Rave mix CD for Crosstown Rebels, released in November 2011. In May, Droog made their first appearance at the premier US dance music festival, Movement Detroite. This summer Droog will be playing high profile gigs at some of the world's most recognized dance venues including Fabric, Watergate and Space Ibiza.
LOUIE FRESCO (No.19 Music // Mexa Records)
A very important part of the core family of Nitin and Jonny White’s imprint No.19 Music and head of a very successful record label Louie Fresco is finally getting the world to notice him and his talented country Mexico.
Mr. Fresco’s music is ethereal, ominous, experimental, yet it goes very well on the dance floor. Having been working on his album for No.19 for 2 years, Louie hadn’t released any original music on any other labels (apart from his own label MEXA Records) but he has done some remix damage on so many labels such as Defected, Nurvous, Smoke N Mirrors, Strictly Rhythm, Exploited, and a recent remix he did for Ali Love on Dim Mak Records.
Louie is no stranger to success (his remix of #Lee #Foss’ Cold As Ice stood in #1 for almost 4 weeks on Beatport), and now that his album will be released later this year he claims he is “not nervous at all, just very excited” about it.
But the expectations are high.. His first EP received many amazing reviews and accolades such as Ibiza Voice’s 7.5, and MixMag’s “Tune Of The Month” and the amazing 5 out of 5 stars.
In 2013 Louie released his second EP on No.19 by the name of Autophobia, featuring the stunning vocals of LUNA, which got the remix treatment by none other than his label mates Art Department. In the same month Autophobia was released Louie also had 2 magnificent releases which made a big splash in the scene. The first one was a release on Shir Khan’s imprint Exploited of a collaboration with Betoko and Fritz Helder from Azari & III which got to the top 10 Deep House charts on Beatport, while his first EP on his own MEXA Records called New Hateration got to the #1 spot again on the Nu Disco charts with the remix done by none other than house legend MK.
