Here are your selectors for the evening...
Boris Gladkikh aka Gladkill has been on a meteoric rise in the electronic music scene since he first began playing live in 2009. Through his tremendous work ethic and tireless touring schedule, Gladkill has already played for massive audiences on the stages of large-scale music festivals such as Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Earthdance and Burning Man, winning over new fans with every stop.
Originally hailing from NYC, Gladkill now resides in Los Angeles and is part of Headtron, where the versatile young producer’s music fits perfectly alongside the other talented artists that make up the collective. Refusing to stick to the comfort of making one style of music, Gladkill has rewarded audiences through the sheer diversity of his songs, as he deftly moves between dominating dance floors with his sexy, crunked-out club bangers, as well as captivating home stereo speakers with more downtempo and melodic material.
Following up on the success of 2010’s Ghostwork and 2011’s Lovelost, he has continued to hone his production skills by consistently creating fresh original material for his genre-smashing live sets, which will culminate with his debut artist album due in 2012. With a heavier emphasis on songwriting and song structure, Gladkill is aiming to make music that will stand the test of time.
When you listen to Gladkill’s songs or see him perform, you’ll discover an artist set apart between the sheets of cool bass lines and ethereal melodies. In an era where disposable dance music is big business, Gladkill makes anything but.

Irie Cartel has made their way to Los Angeles. We are extremely excited to bring our Ritual party that originated in San Francisco nearly 2 years ago, to the city of angels. Ritual San Francisco has proudly become the west coast's largest Dubstep weekly, and we are overjoyed to share the dance floor with our So-Cal fam.
This event is not possible without the positivity from the music lovers that join us. With our humble beginnings in a tiny club, we eventually expanded to the famous Temple Nightclub in San Francisco with hundreds of dancing people joining us every Thursday, and now are expanding into our sister city of Los Angeles.
Ritual has had legendary performers grace the DJ booth as well as given many new comers the chance to shine and share their gift."
This is an experience that is fueled by the people, and is made strong by the love for each other, life, music and dance. The Ritual family is one that is ever growing and we strive to make everyone feel welcome, whether you are a newbie, or a long time die hard. If you have never been to one of our events, feel free to make yourself at home and introduce yourself to the crew. BIG LOVE!!!
