FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC – UPSTAIRS, LOS ANGELES
Hailing from the East Coast, Matt McDermott’s made LA’s record haunts and warehouse spaces home. Upon arriving in the city, he worked at Hollywood institution Amoeba, continuing his journey in music as a staff writer at the online electronic music magazine Resident Advisor, Dubalab host and co-founder of the States of Being party, which has brought acts like Prosumer and Gerd Janson to LA for the first time. A longtime record collector, the past couple years have seen him put his collection to use after a friend convinced him to open up a show. Expect serious dap to the Chicago and Detroit roots of dance music along with pleasant excursions into disco, electro, boogie and dad rock territories — in keeping with the venue, he’ll play music for rooftops and the setting sun.
Aaron Coultate’s likely best known for his work as a news editor at Resident Advisor, where he’s written thoughtful long-form pieces on Tokyo’s listening bars, a French library of world musics and singular clubs like Salon Des Amateurs in Düsseldorf. As you might expect from someone who regularly digs through the world’s best record shops, he’s also a killer DJ with far-out tastes that go over well at his residency at London audiophile haunt Behind The Wall as well as gigs at spots like Brilliant Corners and The Pickle Factory. He’ll join Matt McDermott for this month’s Cool Tempo
