    Converse Rubber Tracks Presents: Com Truise and A-Trak 2/6/15 at the Echoplex, Los Angeles

Converse Rubber Tracks Presents: Com Truise and A-Trak 2/6/15 at the Echoplex, Los Angeles

On Friday night, G-LIFE had the pleasure of attending an event presented by the Converse Rubber Tracks program, featuring Body Language, Com Truise, and A-Trak.

It goes without saying that the performances were fantastic. Body Language set the mood properly followed by Com Truise, who ignited the Friday night crowd with his signature bass and synth-heavy experimental style that honestly stole the show. The Echoplex is an ideal atmosphere for this kind of sound.

Headliner A-Trak utilized the performance as an opportunity to let loose with a well-deserved fun, relaxed, and off-the-cuff set. He even started things off by saying:

“I’m going to play a set like I’m by myself in my bedroom just having fun. I have literally no idea what I’m going to play next.”

In the end A-Trak thanked the crowd while dedicating the release of creative energy to his late friend and co-founder of Fools Gold records, Dust La Rock, who passed away just days earlier.

During a week jammed with countless Grammy rehearsals, packed schedules, staunch critics, and a frantic need for perfection, A-Trak’s call to let our hair down and celebrate life was a welcome relief.

Now onto the larger cause behind the show…For those unfamiliar with Rubber Tracks:

Snoop Dogg and Friends Pre-GRAMMYs Party ft Diplo, Skrillex, Warren G, Too Short, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Chaka Khan, and More!

Grammys Week was in full swing last night as Levi’s hosted the much buzzed about “Snoop and Friends Pre-Grammy Party” at the Hollywood Palladium. Set to feature multiple special guests, including a mysterious “surprise DJ set”, rumors abounded throughout the day as to who may take part.

As both fans and the industry-elite filed into the Palladium, their eyes lit up as the surprise DJ was revealed to be none other than Diplo, who set the mood properly with a raucous opening set.

As if a surprise Diplo set to open the night wasn’t enough, a massive JACK U graphic appeared behind Diplo as Skrillex emerged on stage. The two proceeded to take the crowd through aelectro-infused history lesson in West Coast hip-hop, much to the delight of the now packed LA audience. A live remix of Warren G and Nate Dogg’s Regulators? Yes please.

After Jack U left the now massive crowd completely amped up, it was time for the Doggfather himself to take the stage.
