American Standard is bringing together four of their own for one night of great music. Rayko (1st LA appearance!), Cole Medina, Tony Watson and Mr. Chinn all have their productions pressed into the infamous label and on March 17th OC/LA has the chance to dance the night away at an undisclosed location in down town LA until 6am. Sergio V, a well seasoned DJ of the LA underground, will also be DJing alongside the American standard team. To get further info make sure to send an email to the address above.



Born in the Canary Islands, Rayko is a producer and DJ who now resides in Madrid, Spain and is continuously influenced by the artists and sounds of the 70′s and 80′s. In the summer of 2008 he launched the Rare Wiri label gaining immediate critical acclaim with it’s first release making “Record of the Week” at Manchester’s highly regarded Piccadilly Records. Rayko has an impressive discography including his latest 1-sided, sought after 12″ on our own American Standard label! An instant classic & lost gem edited in his distinctive & undeniable style.

OC is getting a fresh new weekly headed by none other that Adult Contemporary & American Standard label head Kumar. If anyone in OC should be taking on a weekly it should be this guy, he is an absolute vinyl junkie who is constantly on the lookout for the peculiar delights.

I had the honor and pleasure to DJ alongside Ritesh, the label head of Adult Contemporary and American Standard. I opened things up early and kept the tempo low. Ritesh picked it up and took the sound to your head, he is a great selector and DJ. If you own any of the records he has put out on his labels you are fully aware of that already!
