Los Angeles, CA | via Cashmere Agency Blog – Last week Los Angeles showed the Red Bull Music Academy that the United States edition of Culture Clash can be just as live as London. Over 1,500 music lovers made their way to Exchange L.A. downtown to watch their favorite music collectives battle it out to see who is L.A.’s best. The contenders were Dim Mak, Dub Club, Smog, and Stones Throw and they had four rounds to show the crowd their best and hope to get crowned L.A.’s top collective.

Each collective was given their own stage, in their own corner of the venue with the crowd filling in the middle and the balconies. Round one saw each crew getting the crowd amped using their unique mixing styles and notable names from each crew. Some highlights from round one was Dub Club putting their spin on Peter Tosh’s “Legalize It,” Smog’s classic dubstep selections, Stones Throw mixing old and new with Snoop and Michael Jackson and finally Dim Mak with a house-party themed stage complete with sofa and beer-pong.

All the collectives brought their best, but in the end, there could only be one winner. By a roaring approval from the crowd, Stones Throw was crowned LA’s top music collective and Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash’s first ever U.S. champions.
