While the name Plastic Plates
may be new alias of deejay/producer of Felix Bloxsom, he's by no means a novice to the music world, as studio drummer and session musician he's played and recorded with Empire of the Sun, The Presets, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Sam Sparro, Christina Aguilera, and Jamie Lidell. This Sydney, Australia wunderkind has seemed to have appeared out of nowhere with amazing remix productions for the likes of Adele, Body Language, Sia and Midnight Juggernauts. With remix and gig inquiries pouring in left and right just in the last month, he's on his way to stardom.
This night will be part of Eric Sharp
's music video shoot and a record release party all rolled into one. Look out for his official remix on Dirty Vegas' album (Om Records), a bevy of original productions (which frequently appears on CSI: Miami), and a substantial gig schedule around the nation (including WMC, SXSW and Outside Lands). And expect to see much more from this young buck in 2012 at BLOW UP.
: The man behind the tropical shirt and funky feel good vibes is David La Melza; Santa Barbara native, and good times engineer. He happens to be a founder of both GottaDanceDirty.com and Mindtai.com. The genre of his sound has been self described as "sun-kissed tropical funky disco" and we must oblige.
