Congratulations Ronda Rousey.
Check Yo Ponytail 2 has proven to be a giant when it comes to attracting electronic DJs. Two nights ago they added Com Truise and XXYYXX to their expanding roster. Com Truise is the moniker of Seth Haley who is known for having a heavy 80′s synth influence. He’s been building buzz off his recent Scion A/V fall tour with Poolside.
Rory O’Connor is a drumming beast who complements Com Truise’s live set. O’Connor is also notorious for being spotted on stage with ambient techno musician Tycho. Apart from his live drumming, O’Connor’s non de plume Nitemoves published a humble album last summer called Longlines that you can purchase here. ***I highly recommend checking it out.
XXYYXX is the handle for Orlando producer Marcel Everett. He quickly gained popularity at an early age of 16 with his experimental bass sounds that developed out of his bedroom. Now 17, XXYYXX has been on an exponential growth and was announced one of the headliners at Noise Pop Festival. ***The festival is going on now in San Francisco.
Here’s a quick recap of the night.
