Originally from DC, KidGusto has spent the last three years working within Los Angeles’s rich and varied music community. As both a drummer and DJ, his approach to music is simple. He searches out the unheard and forgotten sounds all cities possess, making them his own. Later this year, he will be releasing both a single on Brooklyn’s BSTRD BOOTS and a mix of exclusive remixes on TrueGrooves.
fashion show by DELLA & NATIVE SOL:
Los Angeles based designer Tina Tangalakis always sought to combine her love of art and humanitarian work. Upon a visit to Ghana, Tina was greatly inspired by the beauty of local fabrics and touched by the heart of the people. There she decided to begin Della, a company that would provide jobs to the local community while allowing her to access her creative skills.
As a lifestyle company, Native Sol creates intentionally conscious products encompassing compassionate living, social responsibility, environmental awareness, and loving vibration. Our organic Vegetarian (Raw vegan) lifestyle guided us to also think about the clothes we wear, where it comes from, how it was made, and what it is made with. As a result, we want to reflect our food choices in our clothing, fresh, organic, and natural. Native Sol designs clothing, accessories, and jewelry using earth-friendly sustainable materials like organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, recycled materials, abacca, pina, coconut, and other natural fibers and materials. The creations are inspired by different textiles, indigenous cultures, street culture, ancient civilizations, art, spirituality, love, and of course mama Earth.
The name Native Sol basically means “native to the Earth, powered by the sun”. The sol/sun is the source of life and it simply activates the photosynthesis in plants that in turn give us oxygen and food. The earth’s native beauty and gifts sustain us and acts as a protective motherly womb. In honoring the native earth and energizing sun, we chose to call our company Native Sol.
listening party 9-10pm w/ VINYL giveaways:
A three part series of rare Turkish disco, psyche, and folk edits from the 70s/80s.
