The Lab Los Angeles is Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective's weekly post-work unwind where we stream only the finest American and international DJs, live and direct from our Downtown LA office. This Friday, The Lab LA receives a Potion takeover with The Magician, The Aston Shuffle and Bobby Nourmand.
Stephen Fasano, more commonly known through his mystical alias The Magician, descends upon The Lab with his carefully curated Potion showcase, right here in downtown Los Angeles. In addition, The Magician has risen within his genre as a respected tastemaker with his monthly Magic Tapes series. Hear his latest Magic Tape here.
Australian output The Aston Shuffle is made up of Mikah Freeman and Vance Musgrove, a duo that has been hard at work since first catching the attention as rising talents back in 2006 with a handful of celebrated remixes. 2014 saw The Aston Shuffle reveal 'Photographs', which became a Top 1 album on iTunes. Today, The Aston Shuffle command their 'Friday Night Shuffle' on Triple J.
Los Angeles-based Bobby Nourmand joins the Potion takeover with a hometown advantage. Already a noted up-and-comer, Bobby has released a handful of successful originals which have garnered him major attention on Los Angeles' premier radio channel KCRW and Hype Machine as well.
Following The Lab, the Potion trio head to Exchange LA for their own showcase at the esteemed Los Angeles venue. Find tickets and information for the show here.
