Excerpt from WeAreNotARockBand.com / Sept. 28th 2011
“Nikko Gibler‘s contribution ‘Hide From No-One’ starts innocently enough, with a great beat to get the limbs moving that bit more. Then, a saucy little beat comes in over the top, and oh my, when the male vocals kick in… it’s enough to get a girl all over-excited about music again. After that it is just relentless.” “This is a great first compilation-outing from Culprit, the label set up by DJ collective Droog. Considering that it was two years in the making, it sure ought to be. The signs have been there all along though, with their parties attracting stellar line-ups including Hot Natured, Magda, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky, Tanner Ross, Soul Clap, Benoit & Sergio, members of Visionquest, M A N I K…. I could go on here, but you get the gist as to what makes this so special. Fantasy setlist indeed.” CONTINUE READING…

Shadi Megallaa’s, “You Aint Dancin” in the hands of Nikko Gibler, bubbles and clicks with mechanical precision. The tight electronic funk here pushes against the trends of today’s floor and shows how Left’d as a label is open to any music with something to say. Five releases in and the 8 tracks on show again provide a snapshot of modern underground house music. From the super deep funked up core to the twisted outer limits, the label continues to break fresh talent and put a vibrant spin on todays dancefloors.
Also featuring tracks and remixes by Waifs & Strays, Geddes, John Johr, Mark Chambers, Rusty James, Christian Maiden, Maher Daniel, Jacksonville, Stojche, Matthew Burton, Nick Lawson.

OUT OCTOBER 10th 2011
(Los Angeles) As announced last week, one of my tracks has been selected for Culprit’s upcoming various artist compilation “Above The City”. Originally scheduled for release on Sept. 21st. I have been informed that the OFFICIAL release date will be October 10th 2011. The compilation features tracks by Clovis, Lula Circus, Death On The Balcony, Mark Chambers & Soho, Nico Lahs, Seth Troxler & Lee Curtiss, Anthony Collins and myself.
The compilation has been named “Above The City” in reference to Culprit’s notorious Standard Rooftop parties. Which by the way will be coming to an end (FOR THE SEASON) on October 2nd 2011. On decks and gear will be none others than Martin Buttrich (Desolat/Cocoon), Jozif (Wolf+Lamb/Compost) and label-heads Droog (Culprit/Crosstown Rebels).
That’s what you get when you have more fun than you really should. That’s how good it was! lol =) So I hope to see everyone there again so we can get wwwwrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddddddddddd!
Culprit’s first Various Artists compilation has had a two-year genesis. “Above The City” is a meticulously assembled collection providing a sonic blueprint to a maturing label realizing its musical identity. Joined by the same idea and feeling are some of the most promising young producers around – from Los Angeles’ own Clovis and Nikko Gibler, Londoners Marc Chambers & Soho, Leeds’ rising stars Death on The Balcony through to the Italian contingent of Lula Circus and Nico Lahs, anchored by the experience of label old friends Lee Curtiss & Seth Troxler and Anthony Collins.
Deliberately released at the tail-end of the label’s summer rooftop party season, Culprit Sessions, this collection embodies the atmosphere of the imprint’s revered Sunday afternoon rooftop parties. A few golden hours of revelry, betwixt day and night, where friends, lovers and music take on ethereal warmth. The release of “Above The City” is a poignant conclusion to and celebration of Culprit’s most exciting party season to date.
“Above The City’s” track order is sequenced to provide a snapshot of an imagined Culprit Sessions soundtrack. A musical guide to the progression of a Sunday afternoon party, which starts out eclectic and jazzy, moves through to deep and dubby, before picking up energy as the dancefloor fills.
Culprit’s vibe is one that has resonated with producers around the world. Some are new to Culprit and have never traveled to LA, others have played Culprit’s parties and been frequent guests of the label. But all have taken inspiration from Culprit and channeled this in their own unique ways. The result is a compilation of tracks flush with individuality, that collectively evoke the close of a California summer.
