I'm sure if you asked anyone there, they would have told you LA's Mad Decent Block Party was more than just mad decent. It was a damn good time! The energy from the performers and all the attendees was as beautiful as the weather in Downtown Los Angeles on Saturday.

Honestly, I've never been a fan of dubstep, but those deejays really know know how to get a crowd moving. I really only went to see Theophilus London and Gaslamp Killer (who I missed), but I was pleasantly surprised with some other sets I saw.

Although it wasn't really my type of music, Maluca had a really energetic performance. I don't think the crowd stopped dancing throughout her set! I'm a fan now. Download her new mixtape here. Gilbere Forte' also made a special guest appearance during her set. If you haven't heard his album, 87 Dreams, I highly recommend it. Bosco Delrey, on the other hand, was completely different, but I was feeling it. His music is like a mix of old school punk, the Rolling Stones, and electro. His leather jacket was really dope too!

See, I knew Theophilus London would put on a great set, but even that would be an understatement. It takes a certain artist to be able to dominate a stage entirely, and he did just that. I've had his last two mixtapes on heavy rotation all summer, and I'm glad he was able to exceed the energy from his recordings during his performance. He performed a song from his upcoming album, and judging off of that, this album is gonna be bananas! It's also being produced by the one of my favorite songwriters, Dev Hynes of Lightspeed Champion. If you haven't listened to any of his mixtapes, you can get them here.
