This past TuesdayÂ Flux Pavilion shook the foundations at Hangar 8, a realÂ airplaneÂ hangar in the small Santa Monica Airport.Â The hangar was decked out with black lights, an impressive 4-sided visual display, and a great party vibe! Steady was up first and dropped dubstep jams while those inclined grooved out. Tokimonsta followed with what I called lounge-dub and then Flux came on to steal the show.Â I was never a zealous follower of Flux but he completely took me by surprise, dropping a balanced yet satisfyingly dirty set of dub, electro and moombahton. I was dancing my pants off while girls everywhere were climbing on guys shoulders. Despite Flux’s set being cut short I am now firmly sold on the magic of his fingers and would come back to watch him do his thing any time.
