About Randy Seidman:

Randy Seidman is one of the hardest working electronic music artists in Los Angeles. His passion for quality & versatility has enabled Randy to share the stage with such well-known DJs as Kaskade, Ferry Corsten, Cosmic Gate, Benny Benassi, Andy Moor, Gabriel & Dresden, Erick Morillo, Orbital, Christopher Lawrence, Astrix, Morgan Page, M.A.N.D.Y, and many others. Randy’s sets are woven together with original edits, creating a unique atmosphere that has caught the ears of many.

Since 2007, Randy has been the top support choice of trance megastars, Infected Mushroom, playing over 300 shows with them around the world (from Ecuador to India, Mexico to Russia, Canada to Ibiza, New York to Madrid, and countless places in between). They named Randy “Breakthrough DJ/Producer of the Year” in the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 poll.

As one would expect, this exposure helped open many doors for Randy, including headlining shows at Ministry of Sound in Korea; Full Moon Festival in Koh Phangan (Thailand); Levels in Bangkok; Sultan in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia); WhiteRoom in Sabah (Borneo); Pyramid & Velvet Hypnotized in Bali (Indonesia); El Siete in Quito (Ecuador); Rise Afterhours in Boston; Silk City in Philadelphia; and many other global destinations including Switzerland, Russia, and Mexico.

Additionally, Randy has had the honor of playing some of the world’s best clubs and festivals including: Privilege (Ibiza), Kapital Festival (Ecuador), Caffeine Festival & Beta Nightclub (Denver), Guvernment (Toronto), Insomniac’s Nocturnal Festival (Austin), and three times at the Miami Winter Music Conference for Ultra Music Festival. All of this while holding a monthly residency at one of the world’s top nightclubs, Avalon in Hollywood.

Since 2008, Randy has had a stream of releases supported by the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Sander Kleinenberg, Ad Brown, Omid 16b, and Matan Caspi to name just some. Randy’s first downtempo EP, entitled ‘Sunset Honey’ (produced alongside Infected Mushroom’s guitarist, Tommy Cunningham) climbed to the #2 spot on Beatport’s Top 100 Chill Out release chart. This set the stage for Randy’s next two downtempo EP’s, both of which climbed to top-3, including the #1 position for ‘Been Forever’, a successful collaboration teaming up Randy with The Maniac Agenda (producers of the popular video game series, Metal Gear Rising). Also notable is that Randy’s upcoming productions are slated to be released on the popular record labels Black Hole, Dissident, Sine Music, and Virtual Love.

Randy hasn’t settled with DJing and music production… Open House is his electronic music mix show which airs monthly on Digitally Imported Radio, as well as ETN.fm. The program features quality dance music ranging from Deep to Tech to Progressive, and has reached over 150,000 downloads from around the world. Past months have included guest mixes from the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Chris Lake, DJ Chus, and Quivver. Check out all episodes and track lists at www.openhousepodcast.com, and subscribe for free in the iTunes store.

Randy pursues his craft with exuberant devotion: a desire for the party, for the sound, and for the beauty of dance music. In the next few years, you will see his ambition take him to new heights – in music and in life.

Paul Oakenfold Announces Trance Mission North American Fall Tour

The original pioneer and icon of the global trance scene takes his
“Full On Fluoro” sound to North America for the first time.

Paul Oakenfold Announces Trance Mission North American Fall Tour

Three time Grammy nominated DJ and producer Paul Oakenfold returns to his roots as the original pioneer and icon of the global trance scene with a new tour and album concept that launches in the US and Canada this October.

“Trance Mission” will bring a fresh visual and audio experience to the hottest dance floors of the world as Paul takes his popular “Full on Fluoro” sound, which has gathered incredible popularity in Europe recently, on the road in the US for the first time. In addition to the tour Paul will release a ”Trance Mission” album featuring brand new versions of ten of Paul’s favorite trance releases of all time.

Paul Oakenfold’s diversity as a producer and DJ have earned him mass acclaim from all sides of the dance music scene but despite his successes producing / remixing the likes of Madonna, U2, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, many fans will always associate him with the trance movement in which he has played an integral role for well over two decades.

In the 1990’s Paul’s Perfecto and Perfecto Fluoro record labels were responsible for some of the biggest selling trance releases of all time, including classics like Planet Perfecto’s “Bullet in The Gun”, PPK “ResuRection”, Man with No Name’s “Teleport” and Paul’s own colossal hits Grace “Not Over Yet” and “Southern Sun” – the latter of which has appeared on over 150 compilation albums to date.

Of his 36 Essential mixes for BBC Radio 1, his legendary “GOA Mix”, which perfectly fused underground trance with poignant samples taken from film and radio, was voted the best Essential Mix of all time by Radio 1 listeners. It also received a Silver Award in the Specialist Music Programme category at the 1997 Sony Music Awards.

Paul’s 2011 “Fluorescence” Essential Mix was seen by many as the next chapter to the Goa Mix – with the online archiving of the show attracting over 500,000 listeners in the 3 months after its initial broadcast.

His residencies for Amnesia and Pacha (Ibiza), Ministry of Sound and Home (London) and Planet Perfecto at Rain (Las Vegas) are all well documented as milestones in the evolution of the electronic scene, but it was his residency for Cream in Liverpool that not only set his path towards becoming the one of the biggest headliners in the world but also cemented his status as head of the trance fraternity.

Over ten million album sales later (from two artist albums and over thirty DJ mix compilations) Paul Oakenfold opens a new chapter in the history of trance with his brand new “Trance Mission” tour and album concept.

Trance Mission is now activated….

New Year’s Eve 2012 Afterhour Parties in LA

New Year’s Eve 2012 Afterhour Parties in Los Angeles

With so much to do this New Year’s Eve, it can be a TOUGH decision to figure out your plans. For one thing, most of the Los Angeles massives have traveled outside of the city to Orange County, and given that enough promotion has gone into getting the word out about events like Together As One and White Wonderland, I won’t focus on those events here.

For those who want to experience a true all-night party (especially after you’ve been dancing all night with yours truly on the decks!), here are the top 3 events going on past sunrise and into the morning light:

1)      John Digweed at Avalon, Hollywood. Click here for details

2)      Psy-Tribe’s New Years Eve Party at Humming Bird Nest Mansion, Simi Valley. Click here for details.

3)      Afterhours at Ecco, Hollywood. Click here for details.

Or you can just stay home and play by yourself all night…

COMMUNITY: GIANT Moves from Vanguard to Avalon!

Yes, brothers and sisters of LA, it’s official — GIANT is off to their new home at Avalon starting this Saturday night with Murk & Matt Tolfrey. Official details from Giant below:


It’s official. Giant has merged its weekly Saturday night (formerly at Vanguard) into the award-winning grandeur that is Avalon. Following last Saturday’s breakout gig with Bob Sinclar at Avalon, this Saturday marks the start of weekly Saturdays that are poised to unite the best of the best under one roof.

So, without further adieu, Giant will be co-presenting Avaland Saturdays at Avalon and Giant will also be supporting Control Fridays at Avalon (more on that later).

Avaland Saturdays are fully stocked to begin 2010. We’ll be uncorking everything from Steve Angello (January) and Calvin Harris (February) to Sasha and John Digweed (both in March). With groundbreaking production and weekly installations to match the top-notch talent, these nights will bring something extraordinary to behold.

This Saturday in Hollywood… Murk (Oscar G and Ralph Falcon) and Matt Tolfrey @ Avalon. With 7 consecutive singles reaching #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music/Club Play, Oscar G and Ralph Falcon’s MURK moniker is showing no signs of slowing down… this, ladies and gentlemen, is house music. From his regular gigs at Fabric (London) to his international flings along side Richie Hawtin, Damian Lazarus and Craig Richards, Leftroom honcho Matt Tolfrey’s particular brand of mutant-house has the power to win hearts and destroy minds on the dance floor. Trent Cantrelle joins the fun as we get underway this Saturday.

You can join in as well… click here to get in on our Limited Discount List for $10 b4 11pm.
