Editorial Review

With Los Angeles's reputation for the plastic and superficial, you wouldn't peg the City of Angels as a place where deep, soulful house music could thrive. If L.A. conjures up images of glow sticks, silicone and velvet ropes, Marques Wyatt has labored for almost a decade to add Latin percussion, organic keys and soaring vocals to the mix. He's one of the major DJs whose name is synonymous with a residency that becomes a phenomenon of its own, and Wyatt's DEEP parties at Hollywood's Vanguard nightclub gather a devoted flock of house heads from all over southern California.
