Best Electronic Collective Los Angeles 2013 


L.A.-based electronic DJ/producer crew WeDidIt was founded in 2008 by Nick Meledandri and Henry Laufer, the latter also known as venerated beat-scene producer Shlohmo. In the past five years, the guys have gone from DJing house parties to releasing records from a top-notch roster, including RL GRIME, Groundislava, D33J, Nick Melons and Earnest Blount. As a collective, this crew is creating major buzz — and they're all younger than 25. While WeDidIt deals primarily in the underground, their sounds oscillate between sexed-out, deconstructed beats and the brand of nasty trap that's been in vogue recently. "We have always been doing what feels right to us and then dealing with the aftermath," Meledandri says of the WeDidIt business plan. The aftermath so far? Success. wediditcollective.com. —Katie Bain

  • Partying at Comic-Con 2014
    Whoever said nerds can't party has obviously never experienced Comic-Con after dark. The industry parties might have free booze, but most of those execs are back in bed by 10 p.m. If you ask the fans they'll tell you that sometimes the best party is the one happening in the hotel lobby with their friends. We set out to get our geeky grove on and capture all the action in the Gaslamp Quarter. All photos by Shannon Cottrell.
  • Comic-Con's "Celebrity" Autograph Area
    A sometimes overlooked (but still incredibly unique) aspect of San Diego Comic-Con are the celebs available to sign autographs, as well as the autograph seekers themselves. If you've ever wanted to meet the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld or the guy who played Michelangelo in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are, as you wander the Autograph Area, you'll be able to connect with someone you didn't even realize you were waiting your whole life to meet!
