Party

HAPPY BIRFDAY BUDS! #OW5LA

Just like I did w/ my previous #TBT post, I'm gonna start jumping on THE WELL LA blog from time to time to drop some knowledge + photos + vids.  Enjoy these brain farts from a fun day/night/whatever.  Thanks for letting me hijack the blog again buds!

So, I went to celebrate OWSLA Records' 5th Birfday thingy in Hollywood w/ the homies on September 18, 2016...

Here's an amazingly focused photo of an epic Skrillex B2B What So Not B2B Valentino Khan B2B Baauer impromptu set

Anyhow... sorry for being a bit MIA for the past couple weeks b/c I was traveling and shit (which I will explain in my next post... stay tuned lol), but once I got back home, I realized that LA was still crackin' and that it was time to get off my ass and get to Hollywood to celebrate 5 years of Sonny's lil label that could ;) 

I mean 5 years.  #OW5LA damn.  TBH, I feel like I have been lurking the OWSLA buds since the beginning.  I think I even got a video kicked off my Youtube channel b/c I was shooting behind Skrillex before I even knew the guy, and probably his team probably got spooked by my very-invasive style of shooting.  I mean, I started shooting stuff about 9 years ago... so the math checks out.  Anyhow, I forgot how I formally met Sonny, but once we met, we just clicked b/c he is just a good dude and ultimately a good friend.  Soon, he invited me to tag along on some of his adventures and just ghetto-document cool memories that seemed to happen in our mutually serendipitous lives.  I went on his Takeover tour a couple years ago to shoot some stuff for NEST HQ and seriously, after a month of traveling together, I realized that me and the OWSLA homies were probably gonna be buds for life.   I even did a lil recap vid for the homies at NEST HQ for their 3 year Anniversary party... so yeah, I was psyched to celebrate another year of my homies getting wiser and killing it even harder...

So, enough, sentimental stuff, let's get on with the party!  I think I talked too much above, so let's get it poppin w/ some NINJA VIDS

Here's Oshi from the Brownies & Lemonade crew... aka the buds hosting the function in Hollywood for all the fam to congregate to aka the ones setting it off before the Skrilled one even showed up... MUCH RESPECT

But, what OWSLA function would it be if it didn't end up with a shit-ton of super-secret DJ guests rolling thru to show their love via sick jams? Hmmm...

First up, Anna Lunoe aka Aussie HyperHouse dreamboat made sure it got uncomfortably full on the dance floor.  If you watch the vids above, you can notice me trying to swim thru a sea of buds.  I even called the vid that b/c whateves. 

Then, What So Not shows up on the Aussie legend wave and proceeds to do his thing after just doing 2 nights at the Fonda... The dude brought his trademark wobbles mixed with future crazy shit with a dash of fashion sense added to the mix.  

And then... a wild Baauer appears, and jumps onto the very decks that Emoh was currently mashing out for the crowd of kids clutching their phones to capture the perfect Snapchats... But, I love Baauer, and it was a total surprise to see the homie come thru and go bonkers a la OWSLA.

Then, this is when things get even weirder and cooler and louder and funnier and crazier. Sparklers are now going off in the booth while a big-ass cake is being brought to the DJ decks and a tiny Marshmello appears out of nowhere.  The dumb mask comes off, and our friend, Skrilly appears, and it turns into a crazy B2B2B2B2B of everything.  

Minute by minute, the DJs in the booth just stack on top of each other until there is nothing left to do but do a gigantic Skrillex B2B What So Not B2B Valentino Khan B2B Baauer B2B a dude w/ a jersey that said Slushii B2B Dillon Francis' Hawaiian shirt B2B Datsik's Apple Watch + a shit-ton of delicious cake (I tried it and it was bomb).   Basically, it was the internet in the real world.  Or a moment I like to call... When URL becomes IRL.  

So, yeah, the music was crankin and the homies were chillin.  I got a bunch of photos of the homies chillin too.  So, here are the homies.  Homies.
