Tornado Wallace guest hosting – Happy Hour
Bianca Lexis is an LA-based vinyl DJ. She currently holds a residency at Tenants of the Trees in Silverlake every Saturday night and regularly guest DJs around Los Angeles. Growing up listening to both her dad’s new wave records and LA’s old school R&B station Hot92.3, she naturally grew an appreciation for soulful chords, ’80s production and synth sounds. She got her start in radio at KXSC before seriously collecting records and landing an internship at dublab.
On her monthly dublab program, Happy Hour, she shares her favorite feel-good grooves – cheap or expensive, well-known or obscure, as long as it’s rich in soul and moves you physically and emotionally. Expect to hear some boogie, disco, and ’80s funk, but anything goes.
This program will feature special guest Tornado Wallace. He’ll be guest hosting the show.
First blowing a gale as a forerunner of the new wave of Melbourne dance producers, Tornado Wallace’s distinct and perceptive electronics now find him in a constant rotation of both hemispheres, spending most of the year based in Berlin.
From formative house beginnings, the ESP Institute initiationThinking Allowedproved Tornado Wallace as a force to be reckoned with –the driving groove and Will Powers stargazing quickly matched by an EP of eco-electro burners on Beats In Space. This two timing continued for another round with ESP issuing the elegantCircadia, while Beats In Space got their churning acid two-trackerKangaroo Ground/Ferntree Gully.
In tandem, krautback duo Coober Pedy University Band was formed with Otologic’s Tom Moore, who he’d previously stirred up trouble with as fractions of C Grade and Animals Dancing –two long standing parties of undeniable impact on their hometown. Their trance inducing debut on Soft Rocks’ imprint Kinfolk recruited vocals from a lesser known Chet Faker, followed by the bonkers 2014 anthemKookabura.
After some time in between releases due to an increasingly busy DJ schedule, 2016 saw the release of a Tornado Wallace 12” on Second Circle, sister label to cult Amsterdam archivists Music From Memory, as well as his debut albumLonely Planet, which came out on Gerd Janson’s Running Back

Hoseh – Version Sounds
“Version Sounds is my interpretation of radio communication, my version. At its roots, the show credits reggae dub for adding so much to the music we listen to today. From there the branches continue to sprout via a myriad of genres and time spans. Colombian cumbias meet Germanic techno dub meets British twee pop. Stereolab and Sun Ra lounge around as Stars of the Lid jam with Prince Jammy. You never know what to expect but you are guaranteed that the now sounds of 2013 will have a toast with the happening sonics of 1968 and beyond!” love, Hoseh
6:00pm – 8:00pm
