Back in 2010, the pioneers of the Knockstudy DJs received their first official inauguration to the DJ community through their participation with MOCA Teen Night. A night time event where a high school ID got you through the gates, this party managed to draw in roughly 2000 high schoolers from all over Los Angeles. The legacy our first group of DJs left was so great that the MOCA Apprenticeship Program invited the Knockstudy crew of 2011 to entertain their guest yet again this coming February 2012.
The two groups had the opportunity to meet, discuss their thoughts and brainstorm what they envisioned for their audience.
It was agreed that the ambiance should engage, inspire and stimulate thought around the theme of the current exhibit titled Under the Big Black Sun showcasing art in California between 1974-1981. If you haven’t already checked it out, we definitely encourage you to take a gander at the thought provoking images of our sunny state of California during a time period “when the political and social roles of artists, the authority of institutions, and the ‘objecthood’ of art were all being questioned.”
Patty and Fabrizio, the masterminds behind the MOCA Apprenticeship Program, paid us a visit at our new and improved Knocksville location. We’re all super excited to work with you guys again and look forward to more collaborations in the future!
