YM&C was recently invited to The Gaslamp Killer & Friends show in Los Angeles. The music event not only housed a sick line-up, but also celebrated the release of Gaslamp’s debut LP, Breakthrough. In conjunction with Red Bull Music Academy (who is known to throw some of the best music events), Gaslamp offered his fans free tickets to this epic show… yes freeeee. There was a line wrapped around the block with eager music heads waiting to get in. To ease the wait, Gaslamp came outside and handed out GLK goodies to the concert goers, because he’s just that awesome.

“Originally hailing from sunny San Diego, William Benjamin Bensussen aka The Gaslamp Killer has quickly become a highly sought after beat maestro. Relocating to Los Angeles in 2005, he co-founded the infamous Low End Theory party series together with Daddy Kev and DJ Nobody and became a cohort of Flying Lotus and the Brainfeeder crew. A master of dark, swampy funk, coupled with murderous drums and sounds from beyond. The scourge of gaslamps everywhere is an integral part of the LA beat scene alongside the likes of Daedelus, Samiyam and Flying Lotus, just to name a few.” – RBMA
Joining Gaslamp on stage was J-Rocc, Eprom, Computer Jay, and a special surprise appearance from Flying Lotus! Twas a good evening indeed. Have a listen to some of the set below and check out a few highlights in our gallery above and on our instagram.
