K.U.L.T. 99.1 Vespucci Beach, “Low Power Beach Radio”

Curated & hosted by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes /The Voidz), with special appearances by Mac DeMarco, David Cross and Tony Mac. The station’s playlist spans Joy Division to Danzig to the The Velvet Underground and includes the exclusive world premiere of a new track from The Voidz called “Alien Crime Lord.”

Still Slipping Los Santos

UK DJ Joy Orbison, meanwhile, has set up shop in Los Santos with hopes of launching his own pirate radio station – Still Slipping Los Santos – out of Mirror Park. Joy is ready to deliver a seamless mix of house, techno, drill and drum-and-bass to the masses – the only problem is he’s having trouble getting a strong enough signal to reach beyond his neighborhood. If he’s going to take his sound city and statewide, he’s going to need some help getting started. Keep an eye out for opportunities to support your local disc-jockey on December 15th. 

The Music Locker

Later this December, The Music Locker will debut its own radio station, bringing the sets and sounds of the hottest new club in Los Santos above ground and onto the airwaves. Featuring mixes from Keinemusik, along with genre-defying sets from Palms Trax and Moodymann, The Music Locker will be the go-to destination for house, disco and techno.

FlyLo FM
