Friday [1.27] – TWRK, Falcons @ Avalon
1735 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028 [10pm-6am, 19+]
TWRK – TWRK is a duo that consists of Benzi and eSenTRICK. Benzi is a busy man. International DJ. Record label head honcho. Brand builder. Radio host. Genre chemist. He may have been born and bred in Michigan–where he’s still based out of to this day–but the man gets around. And his reach is only growing. But rap (and dubstep) does not make a career the way it used to. As such, Benzi has used his immaculate taste and outside-the-box thinking to collaborate with brands such as Red Bull, Mountain Dew, Young & Reckless, PLNDR, Karmaloop, Budweiser, and 10*Deep. He’s also performed at events for the Super Bowl, MTV Spring Break, Lollapalooza, and tennis’ US Open. eSenTRIK is quickly creating a name for himself with his unique and one of a kind remixes. Based out of Long Island, NY, eSenTRIK’s edits/remixes have been heard on many radio mixshows and DJ sets from the likes of Diplo, Benzi, GTA, Grandtheft, and more. eSenTRIK got his start spinning hip hop in 2002, creating blend mixtapes to pass around to kids at his high school. His first break into the scene was in 2010, a bootleg remix of the Drake hit, “Over,” which was featured on many blogs including the Fader magazine and Drake’s October’s Very Own site. Since then, eSenTRIK continues to consistently deliver quality material. “Love You Down” remix is his biggest tune to date, thanks to Diplo’s support and its addition to his 2013 “Endless Summer” playlist.

Falcons – Los Angeles producer/dj FALCONS has arrived at the forefront of a new generation blurring the lines between hip-hop, r&b, and electronic dance music. With his breakout Terra EP on Fool’s Gold Records, the young producer has crafted both radio-ready songs & underground club anthems in one breath. Terra received universal praise from outlets like The Fader, XXL Mag, Mass Appeal, and Complex, while gaining radio play across BBC Radio 1, Beats 1 and Rinse FM. Falcons’ explosive lead single, “Aquafina” featuring GoldLink, quickly amassed over 1 million streams and garnered support from heavyweights like Q-Tip, Virgil Abloh and A-Trak. Falcons has made major impact across the globe, touring his sound across North America, Asia, Europe and Australia with standout performances at Boiler Room and Coachella. 2015 was a massive year for the producer/DJ, but 2016 only has bigger surprises in store.
