The Gaslamp Killer feat. Gonjasufi - Kobwebs

The Gaslamp Killer is the resident DJ at Low End Theory out here in Los Angeles, and you can watch a trailer to the documentary that they made here. The scourge of gaslamps everywhere is an integral part of the burgeoning LA beat scene alongside the likes of Daedelus, Nobody and Flying Lotus. His work, from what I have heard, is an amalgamation of rock posturing with hip hop sensibilities with a solid dose of psychedelia thrown in for good measure. I don't know all that much about him beyond from the videos of his that I've watched on Youtube and like many of his contemporaries he looks like an incredibly forward-thinking DJ. This track Kobwebs is off From LA With Love (thanks for reminding me, Ryan). This is just the sort of thing I wish I had more of, so any recommendations please hit me up.
