Saturday [1.14] – Guy J, Eelke Kleijn @ Avalon
1735 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028 [10pm-6am, 21+]
Guy J – From a dance floor perspective, Guy’s unearthly DJ mixes have helped propel his prominence globally. His Balance Presents Guy J compilation for Australia’s illustrious Balance Music series is a perfect example of what to expect when Guy is in the booth. It’s a hypnotic trek through the entire spectrum of house music, composed with an assortment of originals, remixes and edits for an exquisite experience. Guy has the freedom to melt together melodies from all genres thanks to his production prowess and masterful touch with Ableton’s revolutionary software. There are few as proficient in the art of progressive DJing as Guy J. Opening major events for John Digweed. Spinning back-to-back with all-time great, Hernan Cattaneo. Headlining gigs around the globe, most notably in the house music oasis of Argentina, where Guy has reached a level he thought he could only dream of. His list of ultra-impressive accolades is extensive and continually growing, yet Guy J remains his emotional and modest self. It’s impossible to find even the slightest bit of pretentiousness in either Guy’s personal or professional approach.

Eelke Kleijn – Eelke Kleijn is a rare talent. With work stretching across movie trailer scores, deep live shows and incredibly well formed production, he crosses a boundary from electronic producer and in to a true modern day composer. With peers and tastemakers standing up for this unmistakable imagination, the Rotterdam based music maker’s potential has no bounds. With 2 artist albums delivered, an array of originals and first class remixes what he has achieved thus far would be any DJ’s reverie. Sony to Toolroom, Ultra to EMI, Global Underground to Eskimo Recordings and Spinnin’ to Suara have seen the young Dutchman’s vision in productions become world heard. With each record distinct but all out floor fillers, they have been pumped out in his epic sets from Argentina to Netherlands and Australia to the UK. A BBC Radio 1 ‘Essential New Tune’ for ‘Celebrate life’, remixing John Legend and Hollywood ‘soundtracker’ for Parker, The Crossing, Wrath Of The Titans, This Means War and not least Ron Howard’s Rush trailers, his career is in a constant accelerating push to the top. Tipped by Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Loco Dice, Rudimental and more we all lie in wait for his next move, and with no project too big and nothing to faze him, we have all only seen the half of Eelke Kleijn’s Midas touch.
