When it comes to underground disco parties in LA, one our favorites is a little known but wild get together that has to be known as ‘PLEASURE OF LOVE’. Captained by Chicago -> Los Angeles nu-disco & house producer DINO SOCCIO, POL is known to host surprise underground acts from the New York nu-disco scene and beyond, packing in a dedicated following on a weekly basis with a password required on most evenings to squeeze in.
With the massive growth of the brand in the past year, POL has launched their official record label of the same name on a steady release schedule of left-field disco edits from the cream of the crop of the international disco community. Their latest release is a full-length compilation of previously unreleased edits from some of the top names in the scene with all proceeds going to benefit LA’s homeless.
“Respiro Vol 1 : A Benefit Compilation for Homelessness in Los Angeles County from Pleasure of Love
Pleasure of Love presents a compilation of dance music to raise awareness and benefit the homelessness epidemic in Los Angeles County. DJs, producers, and musicians from Los Angeles and around the world contributed tracks, hoping to shed light on the issue and provide a little relief over the winter holidays and beyond.
Artists included are Aimes (Wonder Stories), Wild & Free, Club Tularosa, JMMSTR, Ghosts of Venice, Turbotito, FSQ, Peter Croce (Rocksteady Disco), LADYMONIX (Frizner Electric), Mojito Boys, Sacre Galaxie, DJ Duckcomb, Air Zaire, Dream Machines, Band of Misfits, Mix & Fairbanks, and Nala (London).
Homelessness in LA County surged over 75% in less than 6 years, as reported by the LA Times back in February, 2018. Housing shortages, rising rents, and a slow response to help aid the homeless have created a complex and dangerous situation in LA’s notorious skid row and beyond. In an effort to best utilize the funds we generate from this benefit, we’ll be donating specifically to Downtown Women’s Center in LA. Per the shelter’s website-
“The Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
We envision a Los Angeles with every woman housed and on a path to personal stability. Our mission is to end homelessness for women in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, and advocacy.”
**All proceeds go to DWC, The Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles** “
