Starting next week, future funky beat collective Liquid Geometry is bringing their worldwide roster stateside for the first ever Galactic Reign West Coast extravaganza.
The international coven of cyber-wizards specializes in forward-thinking juke, trap, experimental, no-step, ambient, and psychedelic bass bangers formulated to jiggle your bones out of your body and into a suspended state of ecstatic rapture.
The two-week trip launches on Wednesday, October 8 in Riverside followed by a Tijuana party on Friday, October 11 at Bodega Aragon (Negrete between 8th and 9th, Zona Centro, 18+) featuring:
Dutch producers Eigenheimer and Pluto Dash:
