#WAVEY Summer Series 7.05 Recap

800 534 Dim Mak

This summer #WAVEY has been one of LA’s hottest pool-party destinations and last Sunday, July 5th, was no exception. In Fourth of July spirit, The Well and Dim Mak kept the party going with their weekly Sunday bash providing awesome food, patriotic cocktails, and of course, incredible music. Featuring performances from Todd Edwards, Brillstein, Cocodisco, Bathhouse, and Steve Miller, the party was epic to say the least.

#WAVEY party-goers began filing into Downtown LA’s Hotel Figueroa at 1:30 PM, and Cocodisco took the stage soon after at 2:00. Her smooth, soulful set provided the perfect warmup for the afternoon’s festivities. Bathhouse followed with an equally impressive set, and by the time headliner Brillstein came on at 4:00, the party was in full swing. The local legend delivered an upbeat yet diverse set, showcasing his signature chunky house patterns. As the weather warmed up, so did the music — Brillstein was bringing the heat. Attendees munched on delicious tacos and sipped Independence Day cocktails while grooving to Brillstein’s beats.

The party kicked it up another notch when Todd Edwards, known as ‘Daft Punk’s secret weapon,’ emerged behind the turntables around 5:30. Edwards, aka ‘Todd the God,’ threw down a versatile set, dropping both his newer works as well as his garage house classics. The set maintained an incredible energy, which perfectly complemented the party’s madness. Edwards’ upbeat vibes carried over to Steve Miller’s set, the last performance of the night. Despite the evening’s cooling temperatures, the pool was still the event’s main attraction and the party kept on going.

All in all, the #WAVEY July 5th event was a huge success. With great food, delicious drinks, amazing music, and a crowd filled with tastemakers, what more could you want from a Sunday pool party? Luckily for us, the fun isn’t stopping anytime soon, as #WAVEY will continue every Sunday until September 27th.

This Sunday, July 12, the party will take place once again from 1:30-8:00 PM at Downtown LA’s Hotel Figueroa. We can look forward to performances from Thee Mike B, named ‘Best Club DJ’ by Los Angeles Magazine, deep house extraordinaire Sage Caswell, The Well resident DJs Cocodisco and Steve Miller, and local talent, Lex Famous. Aside from the amazing music, attendees can also expect #WAVEY’s infamous tacos, delicious cocktails, playful pool floats, and overall incredible vibes.

Aoki spits the truth!

800 500 Tim Gauthier

When I perform, I don’t think about the haters, the Internet trolls, or anyone else. I care about giving the person in front of me something they won’t forget. And that’s why I bring the cake and raft out.

Where do I begin?

I haven’t had a chance to really to speak about all the controversy around my on-stage entertaining: DJing vs. The Cake (which includes the cake, the raft, the champagne, the stage dives…the entertainment part of the show). The haters and the trolls have always used me as an excuse to make fun of something that is out of the ordinary, something that doesn’t necessarily make sense to them. For whatever reason, I have always been a target that people love to attack. From not being American enough as a kid growing up in an all-white neighborhood, to not being indie enough for the die-hard hipsters in my 20s and now today, not being a “real DJ” for the electronic music purists…
