REFLECTIONS ON THE LOS ANGELES MUSIC SCENE

Written by TJ Devoe

For the past eight years, Low End Theory has become a staple in the Los Angeles area beat scene.

Founded in 2006 by producer and Alpha Pub Records label head, Daddy Kev, the weekly event attracts

artists and fans for a taste of avant garde, left-of-center music in an environment where creativity and

experimentation are supported and encouraged.This sub-sect of the LA scene has long been responsible

for nurturing and highlighting the talents of a multitude of artists and producers such as, Flying Lotus,

Daedelus, Free The Robots, and Nosaj Thing, as a few who come to mind immediately. As a Chicagoan

in Los Angeles, it was mind blowing to consider that I would be taking the stage at Low End Theory,

alongside my friend and producer, Nunca Duerma, and that we would represent the midwest at the same

event so many of our underground heroes have rocked before us. No pressure or anything.
