DJ Quivver at Nacional 

Peer pleasure

Making mad dance beats under an ever-changing roll call (Skanna, Sroneproof, Quivver) over the years has probably kept John Graham from achieving the same level of superstar status as peers (and admirers) like Paul Oakenfold, Sasha and John Digweed, etc. But make no mistake, the U.K. producer and DJ is just as dynamic as those dudes on the decks. Currently using the Quivver moniker, Graham’s latest concoctions, such as the hot single “Dancing in Dark Rooms,” are filled with otherworldly atmosphere and liquidy synth goodness, as are his vocal and songwriting collaborations with breakbeat boys Hybrid. His selections should be a perfect fit for venerable electronic groove gathering Monday Social, which also offers local warm-up wonder Kazell for this L.A. Fashion Week fête. Nacional, 1645 Wilcox Ave., Hlywd.; Monday, Oct. 15, 10 p.m.-2 a.m.; over 21. www.budbrothers.com.
