Minimal Sessions Los Angeles Is Gaining Speed

*Written by Lizzie Rose for Electronica Life

Detroit is often known for its excellent techno and minimal house. There is one promoter in Los Angeles who is quickly establishing itself as the premiere promoter for techno and minimal house music events – Minimal Sessions. Over the course of the past few years, Minimal Sessions has quickly gained a solid fan base of techno and minimal house lovers in the LA area. Minimal Sessions prides itself on exposing people to the best minimal and tech house artists at its monthly residency at Outspoken (formerly Couture) in Hollywood, CA.

On Saint Patrick’s Day I had the pleasure of attending the latest installment of Minimal Sessions featuring acclaimed tech house producer and DJ Matt Sassari. The Saint Patrick’s Day event marked a landmark date for this event. With over 500 people in attendance, it was by far the largest Minimal Sessions event to date, and the crew was elated. Outspoken provided an intimate environment and the dance floor was absolutely packed. Attendees showed up in green to celebrate the holiday and united together to share their love of techno.

The Minimal Sessions crew decorated the DJ booth in giant four leaf clovers and provided drink specials in honor of the holiday. Sassari played an amazing set, as did Durtysoxxx of Funk’N Deep Records (co-presenter on the show), and Minimal Sessions label owners, Shmitty and Tyler Rouse who played a special B2B set. Tyler Rouse of Minimal Sessions said, “It’s so exciting to see so many people excited about techno in LA, especially on a holiday when there are so many other choices. It seems like it’s actual techno fans, not just holiday fans”.

Be sure to catch the next Minimal Sessions event featuring Barbuto and Remmington on May 19th. Minimal Sessions also has a boutique record label that is renowned for its excellent minimal and tech house releases.
