COMPOUND started in 2017 as a merger of LA’s top techno promoters and immediately became one of the most talked-about brands within the West Coast underground. The host a few choice events a year, with each consistently drawing in crowds of dance fans near and far who prefer darker, grittier forms of their beloved subgenre rarely seen around the region. Their anniversary now has passed, and to celebrate, they’re bringing Lucy, Rrose, and other special guests for a late fall all-nighter.
The Berlin-based Lucy knows his way around an industrial space; a regular of Berghain and purveyor of everything from polished, obsidian techno to carefully-designed ambient and electronica, his extended sets are consistently met with praise among the community. Not to mention, he’s the owner of one of the most forward-thinking labels in the current sphere: Stroboscopic Artefacts. The enigmatic Rrose is making waves for similar reasons, silently climbing the DJ ranks as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to set curation and performance. She’ll be pairing with Lucy at COMPOUND for the American debut of their brand new project, Lotus Eaters.
For those who won’t be at Art Basel, COMPOUND is definitely the top pick of the night for techno fans in Southern California. Grab tickets here before they sell out.
