You heard that right! One of the best EDM parties LA had ever seen is back!  Steve Aoki’s LA label, DIM MAK, hosted a Tuesday party unlike any other in LA in the early 2000’s and ran for almost a decade at the famed Cinespace in Hollywood.  The biggest names in EDM we’re regular guests and performers at the weekly underground dance party.  Long heralded as LA’s best weekly party, it’s bittersweet that it’s making a triumphant return this winter at 1720. This year’s one-night special event pays homage to the blog house era and will bring together the community that helped shape dance music – thrown in association with Indie Sleaze, Last Gang, and The Cobrasnake as host/photographer.

With over 9+ years since the last party at Cinespace, Dim Mak has grown into a global brand in events, music, and fashion. In its heyday, DIM MAK TUESDAYS was at the core of the blog house genre and community, with resident DJs Steve Aoki, Them Jeans, and Dan Oh, alongside photographer The Cobrasnake documenting the night’s activities. The party also fostered a close-knit dance music scene in Los Angeles and helped launch artist careers, including Diplo, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Anna Lunoe, Dillon Francis, Treasure Fingers, Felix Cartal, Crookers, DJ AM, Justice, Uffie, Etienne De Crecy, MSTRKRFT, and The Bloody Beetroots among others. Celebrities also frequented the parties, including appearances from Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Paris Hilton, Common, and Will.i.Am.  Our very own founder, Dustin Hollywood, was even a mainstay official photographer for the event while working for Dim Mak and Steve Aoki in 2012-2013 before starting NAKID.

Join them on December 13th at 1720 for special guest sets, performances, and a taste of the early 2000s!  Rowdy nostalgia aside, Dim Mak is also partnering with LA Mission to run a sweater donation initiative at the event in an effort to keep the streets of LA warm during the winter months. Guests are encouraged to bring any old sweaters, coats, or blankets and drop it in the donation bins at the show! This winter, the nights in Los Angeles will dip to as low as 35 – 40 degrees, so donations are greatly appreciated.
