But first here’s the story on the event! ORLOVE’s iconic, genre bending, hip hop party Panic in L.A., returned after a four-year absence, August 20th when the legendary pair of Rakim and DJ Jazzy Jeff performed on stage together for the first time ever. Under the newly launched banners of Orlove by Day and Orlove by Night, the electrifying ORLOVE collective is also set to host a series of already sold-out boat and pool parties around L.A, including LAMP 8-Year Anniversary with Mark Farina, their Daft Disko, San Junipero – a unique Retrowave boat party, collaborations with Deep House Brunch and Genius Loci Festival, and much more between May 29th and September 18th. All this proves the game-changing American promotion is ready to bust out of pandemic hibernation in serious style.
