Feature: A Decade Of Dublab – Celebrating L.A.’s Most Inspiring and Intuitive Music Collective

It was a true honor to collaborate with LA Weekly Music Editor Randall Roberts on a piece honoring one of this city’s most exceptional audio organizations, Dublab. What began as an Internet radio collective 10 years ago has grown into a veritable small universe of music-making, education, and events-throwing (and then some) — Dublab is a creative engine operating at full bore with no signs of slowing its roll. Read my article on how it happened, or skip straight to Roberts’ piece on the 10 days of incredible celebration Dublab’s got planned.

Watch Lucky Dragons perform at the Dublab studios.
