Chris Ziegler – One Reporter's Opinion
One Reporter’s Opinion—named after Chris Ziegler’s L.A. RECORD review column—is part lesson in lost history and part celebration of the new and the now in the city of Los Angeles, California, where everything happened at least once and anything could happen tomorrow. From demos to dead stock to new releases and the never-released—all genres and generations of musicians from the greater L.A. area are welcome.
Chris Ziegler is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of L.A. RECORD, Los Angeles’ only dedicated music magazine. L.A. RECORD was founded in 2005 on Ziegler’s bedroom floor and has grown into a colossal bimonthly print magazine dedicated to documenting music—in any form—across the greater Los Angeles area. Each issue is a smash-cut collection of famously in-depth interviews with music-makers of all kinds — from Kendrick Lamar to Cherry Glazerr, or Flying Lotus to Foxygen to Les McCann. It is put together by a team of local writers, illustrators, and photographers, with guest contributors like Ty Segall, Kutmah, Tim Presley of White Fence and Nick Waterhouse. Ziegler is also a contributor to MOJO magazine and the local OC and LA Weeklys. He DJs regularly at events around Los Angeles.
The monthly dublab program, One Reporter’s Opinion—named after Chris Ziegler’s L.A.

Jimmy Tamborello – Dying Songs
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.” – Jimmy

Derelict – Damage Control
Derelict is the cicada of his dublab peers, burrowing out every few years, to lay songs in your ears. Some of the songs are exceedingly long, whilst some others will be played at speeds that are all wrong. Some will say “Too much techno!” or “Jungle is dead!;” but the patient will know a segue to AfroKrautJazzChillout is just ahead. Enjoy the occasional guest spot in between trainwrecks or fugues, and we hope you enjoy listening through your phonograph tube.
6:00pm – 8:00pm
DJ Lady C – Rare Air
Rare Air is a product of its time and space, not adhering to any specific genre but rather whatever the wind blows into DJ Lady C’s consciousness. Roots reggae & dub records, classical cassettes, avant-garde electronic CDs, ambient and new age experimental media – Rare Air is a mixed bag made possible by the human experience of living in the 21st century in the City of Angels, surrounded by inspiration, noise, the constant hustle, and countless record stores full of treasure and good people.
8:00pm – 10:00pm
Induce – Dancing, Thinking Loving, Listening
It all started with these words from Induce, “Bout to get on and play some weird stuff @dublab till about 4. Tune in!” Then the lightning split the sky and all the sounds from the dublab studio on this oblate spheroid called Planet Earth were pulled into the cosmos in a single beam of high lumen energy. From this newly elevated point they hit the universal prism of memory reflection and were split throughout the wide universe. We’re happy you got your radio attuned to Induce’s transmission. Whether you’re hearing this 2 billion years from now or simply right now we know you’ll enjoy the “weird stuff” being offered.
10:00pm – 11:59pm
Private Selection – Private Selection Radio
After leaving the dangerous planet i-44, a group of .wav-slaves fly toward a distant speck. The speck gradually resolves into a decaying planet called TO-P40. Civil war strikes the planet, which is ruled by wack DJs, an evil force capable of train-wrecking sets and capitalistic event production. Terrified, a clan of ravers flee the Empire, with their protectors, Private Selection Records. They head for Los Angeles from the planet TO-P40. But when they finally arrive, they encounter a tribe of sound hounds. Private Selection attempts to use their records to defend the clan. Sadly, the ravers are captured by the sound hounds and taken back to an unknown location. Only through monthly broadcasts of eclectic music can Private Selection transmit these sacred frequencies in hope that the clan of ravers might find their way back.
