Their unique sound is made up of hard driving trance, hard house, and acid breaks, and has been widely released on labels including those listed above. Get ready for a 100% live performance that has gained international recognition as one of the best acts in the history of electronica.
GYRATE - LIVE!
(ICU, City of Angels, Fragrant, Las Vegas)
We saw Gyrate play for the first time on the ICU stage at Nocturnal Wonderland last summer and were captivated. The producing partner of hard house heavyweights Kimball Collins and Jon Bishop, Gyrate’s intense live performances of nu-nrg and progressive trance are unequalled and something you won’t want to miss at California Love.

AREA TWO: HOMEGROWN
(Jungle Boogie Records L.A.)
That’s right, the king of green is about to rock your world. No 420 event would be complete without Lenny’s presence, so accept no substitutes! His pumping house stylings are known coast to coast, with appearances at countless massives here in Los Angeles and across the nation. California Love is Lenny’s record release party, so be sure to say congratulations when you see him!
TWENTY TWELVE - LIVE!
(Red Menace, Life, Twitch)
Twenty Twelve (a.k.a. Nick Rapattoni) has performed at several 26C events, beginning with Intimate in 2000. His sets often produce the most pure and uplifting energy of the entire night. At California Love, he will for the first time in L.A. unveil a completely new set of material that he spent the last year developing. Playing together with a live saxophonist, this will be a special performance that you will want to catch.

AREA THREE: THE BUBBLIN’ BASSMENT
(Drum and Bass)
(Technorganic, Underfire, Rawkuts, Florida)
We brought him out for Reset, and after a jaw-dropping set that you won’t stop talking about, we decided to invite him back for a second round. With 15 tracks released in the last two years, Gridlok is quickly becoming one of the top producers in the U.S. And with DJ skills to match his production talent, you can expect an intense set that will get the bassment bubblin’.
(Rawkuts Records, Drumz, NYC/LA)
He made L.A. his new home just a few months back and quickly headlined a slew of shows before disappearing to work on his new mix CD, which is planned for release right around the time of California Love. With an amped up presence behind the decks that no other d’n’b DJ can even compare to, Jo’s crowd oriented displays are some of the most contagious transfers of energy we’ve ever seen.

(H3, Underground Culture)
