Okay, we all love Vancouver, there’s no denying that. But sometimes the weather can really rain on our parade, literally. And I don’t know about you, but Winnie is craving some glorious sunshine. That’s why “we’re going going back back to cali cali.” Well, L.A. to be more precise.
Obviously we’re not going alone. We’ve called some of the hottest up and coming acts in the industry and their combined talents are sure to blow your musical mind. It’s all going down Friday, March 9 at Dim Mak Studios in Hollywood and here’s who we’re bringing with us:
Before he left L.A. to work as Diplo’s right hand man running the Mad Decent Label, Paul invented the modern dance party in Vancouver. Now he shares the stage with Boyz Noize, Justice, Fake Blood, and A-trak, just to name a few.
Benzona, also with Mad Decent, is a former Winnie Cooper contributor who is quickly making a name for himself with his fun Colombian-infused disco house sets. Download one of his dope ass mixes here.
This Vancouver based duo have a strong local following that’s grown rapidly since making appearances at Pop Montreal, CMJ, SXSW, and NXNE. They’ve even shared the stage with such Canadian favorites as Broken Social Scene, Chromeo, and Junior Boys. And after blowing up the City of Angels for the first time, these boys will be heading to Austin for Winnie’s showcase at SXSW.

Chill Black Guys (CBG), who hail from the L.A./Bay area, are a hip-hop group on the verge of signing a major record deal. You may also know them from their popular music video’s, which feature friend and recent breakout star Kreayshawn.
