We’re very excited here at Euphoric to be covering the Synaptik Events stage takeover at “A-Bun-Dance Enchantment!”, which is a truly magical event that will be hosted by Grateful Generation this Saturday 3/17 at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles. Grateful Generation strives to create a transformational immersive experience for Hollywood nightlife. Through incorporating a circus of performers, they will move, touch, and inspire your inner child’s wonder and awe. Along with mind blowing visuals, live visionary painting, healers and vendors, with unique crafts, this is not an event you want to miss!
There will be 3 different stages featuring lots of talented artists to create an epic audio experience. Synaptik Events will be taking over the ballroom and have curated a brain-melting lineup featuring sets by Thelem, Bricksquash, Ultrasloth, HMU, ST4RFOX, Narkatta, Spektrum and Dabis. As always, they’ve team up with Squid Emoji to bring you incredible stage designs and visual projections. Thanks to Synchronistic Sounds, Synaptik will be the first on the west coast to debut the brand new Hennessey Sound Design system in the Belasco Ballroom for ABunDance. You guys can get a little taste of the madness because our friends over at Synaptik sent us a mind blowing mix to get you ready for this weekend. It features the artists they’ve booked for this event as well as other talented artists that have graced their stage. Keep your eyes peeled for our recap after the event and grab some DISCOUNTED tickets HERE!!!
Since it’s launch in 2015, Synaptik Events has been at the forefront of the LA underground bass music scene, consistently booking some of the most forward thinking bass music producers from around the world. David Westbom (Asteroids & Eartquakes), Kim Dorflinger (Kimothy Leary) and Sam Andrus (5AM), the founders of Synaptik, came together with the same idea in mind: to increase more experimental bass music in Los Angeles. Their lineups cover an eclectic mix of talent starting from the unknown and stretching to the world touring.
Some of the artists they’ve booked include: Clozee, NastyNasty, Tsuruda, Kraddy (Glitch Mob), Champagne Drip, Andreilien, Bogtrotter, and Jade Cicada.
In 2017, Synaptik founded a brand new monthly, with Table Productions and Fuzzy Puddles, called “Bass Waffles”. This fun party which happens on the last Sunday of every month rapidly grew in popularity this past year and is free of charge. They boast “No Cover, Fat Bass, and Free Waffles” Who can say no to that?
Later in 2017, Synaptik Events had their first collaboration with Grateful Generation at One Love Festival 2017 at Lake Perris, CA with their very first Synaptik Symposium stage. For this event they booked roughly 30 of Los Angeles best underground bass talents, as well as highlighting Big Chocolate and Woolymammoth. The stage was such a success that Synaptik and Grateful Generation continued their prosperous relationship into their Belasco Theater experience, ABunDance Enchantment March 17th.
