Groundislava is the alias of Jasper Patterson, a Los Angeles-based electronic producer and founding member of the Wedidit Collective alongside his friends ShlohmoRL GrimeD33J, and Nick Melons. His self-titled debut arrived in 2011, introducing listeners to his nostalgic and immersive beats that are propelled by a love for video game soundtracks, retro synthesizers, instrumental hip-hop and house music. He just released his brand new fifth album Groundislava II, a “lost sequel” to his breakout debut album, on his longtime label Friends of Friends. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a dreamy journey through nostalgic beats, fuzzy shoegaze, romantic pop, and more, that also sneaks in a handful of his own tracks along the way.

Live Review: RL Grime with Lunice at Neptune Theater 1/22/15

The problem with cool stuff is there's always a process by which it becomes uncool.
