5/6 UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner Leonardo Romero, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

Ready to lose CONTROL this Friday? Because we’re ready to give one lucky LAmb reader a pair of passes to the Mad Decent takeover of CONTROL at Avalon with Boombox Cartel, Buku, Willy Joy, and Rickyxsan Friday night!

Boombox Cartel, a Mexico-born LA-based DJ/production duo made up of Americo Garcia and Jorge Medina, is one of our up-and-coming artists to watch thanks in part to their propensity for giving back to fellow artists and fans alike. Having racked up over 2.3 million plays for their song “Aftershock” and creating their own quake of success on a tour down under, Boombox Cartel is now bringing it back Stateside with a string of North American dates!


Not only will fans be checking out Boombox Cartel at Avalon, they will also be catching a massive lineup from top to bottom.

CONTROL resident Jon Mon will warm up the crowd on Friday, followed by Robert Balotsky, more commonly known as Buku! With a degree in Music Technology, the Pittsburgh native will be turning heads with his tracks “Laugh Track” and “Might Be.”

Willy Joy has earned the title “The Partymaster” and has been remixed by every huge name in dance music at the moment, from Dillon Francis to Flosstradamus. He’s been played out by Diplo, Adventure Club, and even a new favorite of mine, Brillz!

Rickyxsan’s is a young East Los Angeles native with a passion for music and an ability to pack dancefloors by experimenting with beats direct from LA’s dance music scene. If you’ve been to any festival lately, there is a good chance you’ve heard a track of his as they have been played by some of the biggest names in music, including Diplo, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, and Deorro!
