Minimal Effort Releases Phase 2 Featuring Claptone, Lee Burridge, Eagles & Butterflies and More

This coming Halloween weekend Minimal Effort is relocating into their newly minted venue, ENOX Event Center, taking LA into a devilish night of quality tech and house music with some of the underground’s most iconic talent.

Keeping in mind All Hallow’s Eve’s musical programming vision and Minimal Effort’s forward-thinking standard, the Phase 2 additions include the infamously secretive Claptone, All Day I Dream label boss Lee Burridge, and one of the most exciting acts to rise up from the underground in recent years in Eagles & Butterflies.

Furthermore, All Hallow’s Eve will see the Los Angeles debut of Claptone’s world-renowned The Masquerade. The dedicated stage will feature the signature production and staging that has made it one of the most sought after events on the international circuit.

Minimal Effort Announces Phase 1 Lineup and New Location for Halloween 2017 Edition

Los Angeles’ Minimal Effort returns this upcoming Halloween weekend with a brand new look, brand new location and solid Phase 1 announcement.

Taking place on October 28th at the ENOX Events Center on the outskirts of Downtown Los Angeles, Minimal Effort: All Hallow’s Eve will feature two stages — one outdoor and one indoor — playing homage to both the city’s warm temperatures and its thriving warehouse scene. The venue is in-and-of-itself an incredible find, able to comfortably host thousands of attendees in a hybrid space that encapsulate both the industrial vibe of Los Angeles and the characteristic outdoor partying that occurs in the city all year around.

The day-into-night party will feature a yet-to-be announced branded stage, as well as a selection of powerful track-selectors hand-picked for the occasion. Diversity is the name of the game here, with house, tech house, deep house, g-house and more to be showcased. At the top of Phase 1 we find house legend MK (Marc Kinchen), joined by Crosstown Rebels head-honcho Damian Lazarus and UK house duo Dusky. Next up on the lineup is the eclectic Brodinski, who will bring his signature Atlanta-meet-Paris house sound to LA for the occasion, Do Not Sit On The Furniture founder BEHROUZ, G-House French duo Amine Edge & DANCE and LA’s very own Human Resources.  Phase 2 will be announced on September 25th.
