We live in a peculiar era of music. What persists around us is a constant clash of new and old. The collision of styles, sounds, and tools of the past and present put interesting pressures on artists to create something which is completely their own. With the power of laptop production and knowledge of the classic principles of music breeds a new generation of musicians. Limited only by time and enhanced by their personal, constantly expanding abilities, these unique talents reign true in an industry gripped with mediocrity.
Amongst these forward thinking producers rests the uber-talented Jake Weary, aka Agendas. This New Jersey native, Los Angeles transplant has been molding and adapting his style and passion since he could walk. Armed with a rich voice and an ultimate melodic ear he pushes his music to defy the norms of the electronic sound that have been so universally accepted.
The city of Los Angeles has no shortage of nightlife, and now thanks to Sunset Entertainment Group and Boulevard Nightlife, the largest mega-club, Lure, has been unveiled in the heart of Hollywood.
In an attempt to redefine the standards of nightlife and the very definition of glamour, Lure is an 18,000 square foot indoor/outdoor club that truly delivers.
Designed by Gulla Jonsdottir of G+ Design and 2009 recipient of the Hospitality Design’s “Wave of the Future” award, Lure will live up to its name as you beg to see what’s beyond every turn.
In Los Angeles it's hard to cypher through the talented and the unfortunately talentless. Everyone claims to have the skills to make it to the big time, but let's be honest, in this day and age everyone thinks they can DJ. This is not the case for LA's newest young talent Agendas, who is a producer/ singer/ drummer/ guitarist/etc. The artist, formerly known as Jake Weary, has proven through his eclectic and exciting sound that he is a truly talented musician. Hailing from Montclair, New Jersey, Agendas has been working hard to produce top notch tunes. He released his self titled EP in April 2011. Yes, he is from New Jersey but before your mind wanders to the Jersey Shore buffoons, think twice, you won't be seeing a bundle of Bros obnoxiously fist pumping on the dance floor. This artist keeps his beats classy.
