Friends of Friends got Sweetest Drip hip to the FEVER Party at Los Globos in LA last Tuesday. We got deeply in touch with our bodies
courtesy of Young Adults and Pharaohs.
Wanting to continue on with a proper four-day weekend, I swooped up Howard and as many Dripletsss able to fit in the Sweetest van.
We prepared ourselves for a fun/laid-back time with good company in lil Los Angeles, but didn’t expect it to be kept so real: when we arrived Young Adults were on the decks for real, pullin’ out that top-shelf vinyl. FoF boss Lazy Brow and Deep Body don’t do CDJs; something I haven’t seen in quite some time!
Young Adults – YA 003
As part of a nearly endangered breed of all-vinyl mixologists, Young Adults let the records play in this ADD-riddled digital age. Purveyors of future body musics, Deep Body and Lazy Brow conjure grow house, sultry sleaze, deep lurk, sunsoaked slowburn and deviant disco concoctions. YA acts as a collective, a blog and a record label launching its inaugural two 12″s this summer.
Pharaohs’ layered instrumentals flickered on smoothly after Young Adults’ set, each member coaxing trippy notes and tones out of synths, sexy-sax/oboe, drum machines/IRL bongos, and even a corded telephone receiver. Check out the Jazner interview/mp3 premieres for Pharoahs’ songs What??? and Uhh Uhh (Aceeed Myx) and basically the realest tip you can get on this excellent group of indie artists.
We want our audience to lose themselves and be free. To exit their bodies.
Young Adults & Pharaohs did us right
and kept our four-day-fiestivities alive ‘n kickin’. A lot of things came together at Fever Party 2; whether they were profound dancefloor philosophies or that good ol’ feelin’ good witchu, truth is I felt dat bodyhigh — the kind you get when you know really good music’s being played for u.

The ball has dropped. The bars have closed. A thick layer of dewy fog rests heavy on the hard cityscape. Let’s take a trip through the deep bowels of the night – back alleys, speakeasies, redlight specials and bittersweet comedowns. Your trusty Young Adults guides, Deep Body and Lazy Brow, conjure up the finest nether hour fire starters to keep pulses high and footwork fancy when it matters most.
For those who dug down and showed us their moves pon de floor at Fever Party 2, we hope our moves returned in kind! Sweetest Drip looks forward 2 seeing u all at the next Fever Party ;)
