Jimmy Ness talks to the LA-based, Chicago-bred DJ/producer about Young Thug, songwriting, and his hard new album, "The Peacemaker."
Brad Beatson is at the raquet ball court in basketball shorts “Old English” was the first firework of summer, combining vicious bass with a running electronic tone and a bit of the trap sound that Salva started back in 2012. The raps, triangulating America’s hotbeds, come from Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs and A$AP Ferg. As Son Raw […]
Salva stays savage mixing 15 HBK and Bay Area slaps into a thirty minute mix in advance of IAMSU, Kool John, and Sage the Gemini’s Check Yo Ponytail show this Friday at the Echoplex. I shouldn’t feel the need to repeat myself with these dudes. Su was on Shots Fired. Peace, Love & Shmoplife is […]

His jumpoff mix for Power 106 starts with a “Triggaman” sample extends through TeeFlii’s “This D,” Chaka Demus & Pliers, Jeezy and Mustard’s “R.I.P.,” 2 Chainz, Mac Dre’s “Feeling Myself,” Problem’s “Like Whaat,” and his […]

With America convinced that the Harlem Shake is really the Oswald Cobblepot waddle, it seemed like a fitting time to have on Salva, the Chicago-bred, LA-based producer who has been blowing up ever since he and RL Grime remixed “Mercy.” I explained the story in an LA Weekly column last month, but in short, Salva […]
Last September, I wrote about RL Grime, a New York producer affiliated with the Wediditcollective, who makes “post-Joker London future bass music that breathes with the pulmonary smoothness of a non-smoker, and the hypnotic transitions of a chronic drug user.” His “Grapes Alla Vodka” has been a staple at the Low End Theory ever since, […]

If there’s nothing for you on this lineup, then you’re probably in the wrong warp zone. The Facebook Invite is up. $12. The cost of one drink at a lame LA bar. Barring you being a bubble boy (or “person” if we’re being politically correct), there’s no excuse not to go.  9 p.m. until the […]
