RECAP: dirtybird Players Pimp Out Exchange LA

dirtybird's finest DJs Justin Martin and Claude VonStroke pimped out Exchange LA last Saturday night for their players ball. Insomniac's downtown venue always has top notch production, today's best talent, and LA's most devoted music fans. dirtybird brings out a particularly friendly crowd, and this party kept bouncing on until sunrise.

It wouldn't be a dirtybird players ball without a pimp mac daddy on stage! Bishop Don "Magic" Juan was the host for the evening, and he really helped hype up the party with his unique charm, fancy suit, and shiny goblet.

Justin Martin is one of the most talented DJs I know, and at Exchange LA, he delivered a diverse set of funky beats, catchy breaks, and loads of bass-heavy tracks. As always, the crowd loved him. When he spun his Beatport Top 10-charting remix of Stay by Henry Krinkle, they all erupted with tremendous excitement and sang along

The founder of dirtybird, Claude VonStroke has a very calm and natural stage presence. His experience and confidence is further expressed in his track selection, and his set had a great flow from beginning to end. He had everyone going wild to remixes of his album Urban Animal and his latest CaliFuture EP.

Later in the early morning hours, Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin treated fans to a back-to-back set, and together they make an incredible pair. No matter how late it got, their track selection gave everyone plenty more energy to keep on dancing. dirtybird shows are always a great time.

The Sights And Sounds Of Beyond Wonderland 2014

Over 50,000 people showed up for the third Annual Beyond Wonderland Bay Area for two days full of amazing music, elaborate art installations, and all of the eye-popping goodness Insomniac has become known for. The event was a success in not only the eyes of the fans and DJs, but also the eyes of Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA, as the number of noise complaints decreased by 75 percent from last year.

LessThan3 was there for all of the madness this year, and below you can catch a glimpse of some of the best sites we saw at the festival. You can also feast your ears on many of the sets played by the 60+ DJs at the event by clicking on the player bars above.

EDC Orlando Lineup Revealed

Pasquale Rotella loves to personally announce the massive lineups booked by his Insomniac team, and today's unveiling of the EDC Orlando lineup was no different.

Fans can share in his excitement upon finding names like Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin, and Knife Party among the well rounded bill. With its date of Nov. 7-8 safely outside festival season proper, EDC Orlando likely enjoys far less competition when booking, a theory supported by the dense and diverse EDC-grade lineup packed into two days.

The venue of Tinker Field will be fresh for the occasion after finishing renovations, and EDC Orlando attendees will be the first to enjoy it.

Few acts conjure up imagery of creepy crawlies and spooky tings quite like Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen's Knife Party, and Insomniac has the duo locked down to scare the sh*t out of BOO!'s debut attendees Oct. 31.
