Friday, December 7: La La Land Music Festival @ Phoenix Convention Center

In case you hadn't heard, the bass-heavy hip-hop hybrid of trap music is becoming the flavor of the nanosecond in the EDM world, as big-name producers like Flosstradamus and Baauer (as well as locals like Trapzillas) are pumping its bombastic gravitas through sound systems around the globe.

For Vancouver-born bass terrorist Datsik (pictured), however, its old hat, as he's been mixing hip-hop beats with gory grind of dubstep for a couple of years. The 24-year-old's glitchy, warbling pastiches of Southern rap and low-end thunder are exactly the sort of monstrous big room sound the promoters of the La La Land Music Festival are counting on to fill the, um, big room they've booked at the Phoenix Convention Center, 100 North Third Street, for the eight-hour orgy of electronic dance music debauchery and beat perversion.

Thousands will crowd into the 46,000-square-foot ballroom hosting the indoor EDM/DJ massive on Friday, December 7, and perch in front of any of the three separate stages while getting blasted by the festival's ginormous roster of mad talent. In addition to Datsik, the lineup includes German trance duo Cosmic Gate, Swedish house music king Basshunter, Dutch hardstyle producer duo Noisecontrollers, electro powerhouse Mat Zo, and quirky beatsmiths like Bl3nd, Ed Rush, and Optical. Doors open at 4 p.m. Tickets start at $33.--Benjamin Leatherman
