This Friday will kick off with a special 6 hour DJ set from the vanguard of ‘cosmic disco’ and recent XLR8R podcast contributor Prins Thomas. The highly regarded Norwegian selector has been locked in to celebrate the 4 year anniversary of Far Away, an underground event series that has quickly risen to the top ranks of LA promoters by hosting artists from the likes of Project Pablo, Floating Points, Four Tet, Avalon Emerson, and more. To sweeten the deal even more, Far Away organizers have announced that a portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Gray Area Art + Technology's Fire Relief Fund for the victims of the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland.

On Saturday, Detroit techno will touch down at Lot 613 for a special Prototype/Making Shapes collaboration featuring the American DJ/producer Magda. The now Berlin-based artist and former member of Richie Hawtin’s M-nus crew will headline the party, but she’ll be joined by Ostgut Ton contributor and Berghain/Panorama Bar resident Ryan Elliott, making this an unmissable night of eclectic house and techno. Support will be provided by Kompakt member SONNS and Making Shapes’ own Jeniluv. For more information and tickets, head to the event’s Facebook page.
Also on Saturday night, Cyclone returns with yet another stellar booking for LA’s underground community, bringing Romanian minimal master and [a :rpia:r] mainstay Petre Inspirescu to a proper warehouse setting. Although he’ll play an extended set, Pedro (as he’s affectionately called) will be joined by Lessizmore’s Clovis, as well as Gegov of the Cyclone crew. Tickets to the event are still available via XLR8R--pick up yours here.
