The Lab LA is Mixmag and WAV's weekly live stream and post-work unwind, powered by Void Acoustics, where we showcase the finest DJs direct from our Los Angeles office. For our last edition of The Lab LA in 2018, Dance Spirit and Tara Brooks will combine forces to bring cheer to the dancefloor with a special Space Cadet Holiday Party at our Los Angeles office on Thursday, December 20.
Dance Spirit is the Los Angeles-based duo that has earned a solid reputation as one of the west coast's brightest electronic duos. Over the past four years, they have released music on championed labels such as Get Physical Music, Superfreq Records, Crosstown Rebels, Bedrock Music and more. Bringing their mesmerizing live show to The Lab LA, revelers can expect a performance filled with synthesizers, live vocals and analog drum machines that creates a "hyperspace sound" filled with progressive house soundscapes and subtle hints of minimal techno.
