Two Point Oh! LA 5th Annual Picnic

Two Point Oh! LA turned 5 this year and to celebrate Kelsi Smith held the annual picnic at the W Westwood. The classy event featured a gourmet spread from the W’s kitchen and the hotel provided a nice atmosphere for bloggers to catch up with old friends and make new ones. I have to say, Kelsi and her crew really outdid themselves this year.

NoNoNo – We Are Only What We Feel

I’ve patiently waited for NoNoNo’s debut, We Are Only What We Feel. Mainly because I wanted to see what the collaboration between production duo Astma and Rocwell and singer Stina Wäppling would come up with. The Swedish trio’s Urban-Indie, beat-oriented sound is a synthy production that layers delicate vocals over an atmospheric electro pop foundation. My overall fav, “Pumpin Blood” is the most anthemic tune on here. However, there are a few other gems nestled in between, such as “Echo,” “Like The Wind,” and “Fire Without a Flame.” – NIN

DSTLD – Premium Denim At An Affordable Price

This past Saturday the folks at DSTLD hosted a “Fitting Affair” in order to introduce a number of stylish gals to their new denim line. Founded by co-founders Corey Epstein, Mark Lynn and Steffen Hoffman, DSTLD’s goal is to provide phenomenally fitting, premium jeans at a third of the traditional retail cost. They do this by removing traditional retail impurities—like the middleman and the markup—leaving behind the essential elements of denim: high-quality material, expert tailoring, and the client. Hence the brand’s moniker, which was derived from the word “distill” meaning to purify and refine until only the essential remains.

Black Tie Emporium

Native Angeleno teens Jonathan Heit (13) and Alex Trevino (13) are avid skateboarders with a smart business sense. Heit (a film and television veteran) and Trevino (a budding mogul) came up with the idea of designing their own on trend skate/street apparel line during an afternoon study hall. They decided to call their brand Black Tie Emporium because “it’s so opposite of what most people think of when they think of skateboarders.” The line currently features graphically unique, colorful shirts with designs that anybody can wear.

RAJ - Let Me Love You

Late last year we introduced you to a fellow named RAJ. As mysterious as the name is finding out who RAJ is was just as mysterious. Luckily enough, RAJ was opening for the ever growing The Neighbourhood and both acts were able to grace San Diego’s House of Blues. Alas! - allowing me to gaze upon this mystical creature. As if I couldn’t have been more hooked from his first single “Ghost,” I was packed up and sent for delivery with just seeing him perform such a sensual and intimate set. Outdoing what he had initially created seemed a bit out of the scope. Maybe this guy peaked too fast? How would he outdo what he’s already delivered to the musical scene? I was wrong. Out comes “Let Me Love you.” If I hadn’t developed a musical connection with seeing him on stage I know that I have a set connection now. Take a look and listen to the recently released video for “Let Me Love You.” Pour yourself a nice glass of Shiraz and crank up the volume. If RAJ continues to pour out melody after melody like “Ghost” (and now this) you’ll have a new baby making album. Thank us later!
