We THANK YOU LA and the world for supporting our Thursday Nite event STEREOLOVE for a year and a half..I can honestly say that we filled a void that was missing in LA for quite some time and your support was what kept the fire burning.. We also want to thank the amazing Dj’s, artists and creatives who gave their time and LOVE to the night…We want to thank EXTRA MILD SAUCE for collaborating with us in the legendary GOLDEN STEREO parties and being there from DAY ONE!! Last but not least, we want to thank the entire staff of LITTLE TEMPLE for collaborating on such a monumental event , we wish them the very best of luck in their future endeavors.

It was an amazing run but we are going to take a break and start off fresh at a brand new venue..your genuine love and support is cherished…Hang Loose..Bless
