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.
