Overthrow team up with New York’s own global future DJ collective, Trouble & Bass to present the resurrection of LA’s best technoir dance party, LIL DEATH – upcoming immediately in Miami, as part of the
Winter Music Conference.
LIL DEATH renowned in Los Angeles rears across the US landscape to jar Miami into submission for a forbidden disco so daunting, it must be cast only by the most delphic of hands.
I asked Mincolla a few questions about proceedings. Read on/check out a special Мишка premiere of eeasily thee sikkest mix I have heard this year. Lil Death V.3.0 by Tamara Sky. See link for the playlist. Which as you would expect, features the very best dark artists around right now.
TWPS: What can be expected from a LIL DEATH party?
Alexis Mincolla: Well without revealing too much, I’ll just say we always do our best to change things up and maintain a level of creative production that fosters the unique Tech Noir / Gotham Wave vibes that make up the LIL DEATH aesthetic.
That being said you can definitely expect an amazing line up of talent along with our transformative screen photo booth.
TWPS: LIL DEATH went on Hiatus last year and is now re-emerging in Miami for Winter Music Conference week where you’ll present the night with Trouble & Bass. How did this come about? Why WMC?
AM: Since we uninstalled LIL DEATH 1.0 back on Halloween we’ve been in a sort of digital purgatory while awaiting for the binary wheel of Saṃsāra to reincarnate our 2.0 upgrade here in LA. In the meantime we figured, why not team up with our good friends over at Trouble & Bass and Bromance Records to throw a special one-off party in Miami during WMC to give the city something different that week.
TWPS: Can you leak who the ‘secret guest’ is yet?
AM: I can’t unfortunately but I have a feeling most people already have it figured out.
TWPS: Does this mean all is back to normal for the LA based LIL DEATH parties? Are they back?
AM: Yes, LIL DEATH is finally reconstituting it’s etheric force back to the material plane and it’s stronger than ever://_LØИG_L1VΞ_ŦHΞ_ИΞW_FLΞSH_>>>
TWPS: LIL DEATH released some amazing mix tapes last year incorporating the talents of various DJs and producers. Will we be hearing more mix tapes throughout 2013?
AM: Absolutely, the mix tapes are how we mark the ever evolving sound aesthetic of the brand.
TWPS: Where can I get one of those awesome FRESH+I+AM ‘Chaos’ snapbacks?
AM: Those are currently sold out but when they do become available they will be here on this link
TWPS: What other projects, collabs or interesting clients does The Overthrow have on the horizon?
AM: We’re currently working on a T-Shirt collab with our friends at Beta Unit and we are actually unveiling one of the designs during our LIL DEATH WMC party in honor of a mutual mascot that T&B and Overthrow share by the name of Baba Vanga. Oh and if you want to come up on a free give away the secret will be to close your eyes and open you mind ;)
TWPS: Some may not know, LIL DEATH is also a record label, you released H3X3N’s Analogue Mage at the beginning of this year. What else is coming up on the label?
AM: We’ve got some extremely exciting releases in the cue but I’m big on surprises and preserving the sense of discovery that seems to be ever fleeting in today’s panderous era of marketing. So stay tuned in…
“LA’s infamous weekly technoir ritual will be relocating to the silicone sands of Miami’s post human shore for the friday of Winter Music Conference for a very special installment of Trouble and Bass vs Bromance.”
