Mad Decent, React and LA Beatdown have teamed up to present Los Angeles with Mad Summer. This outdoor concert series kicked off this Memorial Day Weekend and will have a new group of artists every month to provide Hollywood Boulevard with an earfull of their favorite electronic dance music. Electric Sloth was invited to cover the first of the series and even obtained an interview with Protohype (which is featured on our home page).

The event lineup included Shiftee, CRNKN, and recent Firepower Records addition, Protohype. Headlining was Datsik who finished off the night with a banging heavy bass and trap set. There was also a 21+ Jeffrie’s Room that featured the likes of Benzona, Astronomar, Djemba Djemba, and Paul Devro. The next headliner in this epic summer series is Caspa and if this show was any indication of what’s to come, you better be there.
