It’s been a crazy past couple of months here at LB HQ.
In addition to all of the Lyrics Born business we’ve been handlin’ we’ve also been keepin’ things movin’ with the Latyrx re-union that just keeps on going!
Things kicked off at Outside Lands with a very special re-union show where LB & Lateef performed with the Jazz Mafia Orchestra ft. Skins & Needles, Kat Ouano and Joyo Velarde to a sold-out crowd of thousands! Soon after, the duo played a special private show for the folks at Google HQ.
It wasn’t but a week later that actor and artist extraordinaire, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, 50/50, Inception, Hesher, 500 Days of Summer) asked LB & Lateef to join him on stage at the Regency Ballroom for a very special night of film, music and discussion. One of the topics of the night was vinyl records and remixes.
Joe, founder of hitRECord.org (a community of artists mixing their skills to create unique and original content), thought of none other than Quannum Projects to represent the Bay Area on the topic.
2 days prior to the event Joe and his team hit up the guys and by showtime they were ready to not only talk vinyl, but were joined by DJ Zeph (Skins & Needles, Oakland Faders) to perform a live remix on stage.
The following video gives you a taste of the action that went down that night with the first of a two part series of videos from the Regency Ballroom. Check it out:
A very special thanks to not only Joe, but the entire hitRECord.org community.
It was an amazing night and we can’t wait to get together and collaborate again!
If you need that Latyrx fix, don’t miss LB & Lateef performing this coming Sunday (9/11) at Big Sky Brewery in Missoula, MT as they join Pretty Lights for a night of amazing music.
But wait, that’s not all — later in the month LB heads north to Canada for the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, BC on 9/24 with Joyo Velarde and Skins & Needles.
