larry tee says l.a. clubbing trumps nyc's

In today's LA Weekly online I do a Q&A with New York DJ Larry Tee, who's widely credited with naming the electroclash movement of the early-'00s, a scene that might have moved on, but not before influencing the nu electro of such acts as Justice, MSTRKRFT and Steve Aoki. I asked Tee what he thinks of L.A.'s club scene:

"I hate to say this - I'm a New Yorker here - L.A. has a better club scene than New York right now. L.A. is more fun right now. We [New Yorkers] do have a glut of really intellectual people making a lot of music. It's hard to compare to the amount of good music coming out of Greenpoint and Williamsburg. But L.A. has definitely got more fun things going on. It seems like all the kids raised in that expanse of family homes in the suburbs are all listening to cool stuff. There is something to do every night. It's on a bigger scale."

Tee was kind enough to offer up a mix, here.
