Drumcell's work as a recording engineer and fascination with Native Instruments gives him an extra dimension beyond the driving techno sound, so his longevity in the Los Angeles scene is no mystery. He's one of the artists keeping the techno genre alive and relevant in a scene where house, garage and dubstep have gained increasing popularity; when you hear his powerful sets that build and build, insistently drawing people to dance floors around the world (including at Berlin's illustrious Berghain), you'll understand why. Catch him at the GATF after-hours party at Would Shop II on Saturday, September 14. (age restrictions vary, $10-$40)
