San Francisco- Legendary live music venue, The Masonic Center, located on the top of Nob Hill at California and Taylor Streets, has selected Live Nation to professionally manage and produce all center events and performances.

The Rumor Mill: Custom 1200′s for LA DnB pioneer DJ CRS? !

According to his own Facebook announcement made earlier today:

“just got off the phone wit my homie from Technics. They wanna make me sum custom DJ CRS? signature 1200 turntables! BIG NEWS!!!! =)”

In my opinion this is HUGE for not only CRS? (aka George Ybarra) but for US DnB as a whole.  CRS? is one of the OG LA Junglists that helped push the sound that would become a driving force in the LA scene, along with DJs APX1, Oscar Da Grouch, R.A.W., and more!

Big ups to CRS?- we’re looking forward to seeing what they look like!
