Newly released playlists include a selection of criminally overlooked gems from DJ Eric J Lawrence, a dip into LA’s club scene with DJ Valida, quintessential California songs from DJ Anne Litt, visually inspiring sounds from Anthony Valadez, music that makes you want to dance – and cry – from DJ Mario Cotto.
