After a three-year hiatus, John Digweed is returning to Los Angeles to DJ at a one-off at the Mayan Theater downtown March 11. The party is part of his label Bedrock's 10th anniversary celebrations. It also coincides with the release of his and Nick Muir's single "Aquatonic." Locally based spinner Kazell, who opened for Sasha and Digweed on their Spring 2008 Club Tour, will warm things up.
Though the Mayan is not my favorite L.A. venue -- security is way too gangsta for a fairly well-behaved dance crowd, and the place is in need of a serious restoration -- Digweed's sets there always seem magical, and the one-off, reinforced sound is usually momentous.
