LA Weekly : August 1-7, 2003
John Tejada, Liza Richardson, Mok & Rusta
at Create:Fixate’s Optical Lounge and Audio Lab.
You won’t see fake artsy types standing around fronting fabulousness at Create:Fixate’s events –these are gatherings designed to bring people together for genuinely enthused explorations of sight and sound. Tweaked-out pop-culture-inspired visuals and a vast array of media will engross the eye in the Optical Lounge (with noted artists including Harvey Scott Kaner, Brandy Flower, Jason Elias and 18 others), but the Audio Lab portions are no less image-driven. Take for example The Dragon Symphony, a hip-hop opera about turning the world back to its original state of creation, featuring members of Dakah. Or experience the vivid concoctions of DJs John Tejada (Palette Recordings), Liza Richardson (KCRW), and Mok & Rusta (Substance) – specializing in experimental, house and drum and bass, respectively. Also featuring AquaVee(Beat Non Stop), SARU (Respect) and Jubal (Bungalow). 8601 Wilshire Blvd., Ninth Floor, Beverly Hills; 7pm – 2am;
