Om is teaming up for the 2nd year straight with KCRW and Vieroy Santa Monica to present a unique New Years Eve experience. We’re bringing together some of the greatest music selectors of today for a night of food, drinks, and eclectic music.
Featuring Music Selection From
Mayer Hawthorne (DJ Set) (Stones Throw Records, LA)
One of the hottest names to come from the underground, Mayer Hawthorne has spent 2009 and most of 2010 becoming a household name. With his “Retro-motown” feel, he’s helped to bring back sophisticated classic soul into the mainstream. What many don’t know is that he started out as a DJ. For this special event, he will be putting down the mic inexchange for some vinyl records and paired up with the producers behind his recent track, “No Strings”.
Classixx (Los Angeles, CA)
Tyler Blake and Michael David, childhood friends, started a DJ duo in the suburbs of Los Angeles and quickly became blog sweethearts with their sun-kissed electronic remixes of Drop The Lime, Groove Armada, Fischerspooner, Shiny Toy Guns, and more. Most recently Classixx helped produced the newest Mayer Hawthorne track, “No Strings”. Classixx’s are putting the final touches to their debut artist album.
Jason Bentley (Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW)
Jason Bentley is KCRW’s Music Director and host of one of the most influential radio shows in the US, Morning Becomes Eclectic. Jason is hands down, one of the most important music selectors of today.
Raul Campos (Nocturna, KCRW)
The night wouldn’t sound the same without Raul Campos spinning the soundtrack. Born and raised in East L.A., Raul has his finger on the pulse of what makes this city beat. House, down-tempo, urban-soul, and Latin rhythms blend together for a killer mix.
