Back in 2009, I did a small post for LA Weekly on this dude called SFV Acid. I think I found him on MySpace or something. I loved his music, as well as the fact that he, like yours truly, was from the Valley.
SFV Acid, aka Zane Reynolds, has a new EP on the way and is getting a lot more ink than he was back in 2009. This is incredibly exciting. I can’t help but feel a sense of 818 pride while listening to his new mix for Fader and reading the accompanying interview. This bit hits close to home:
I mean, I wasn’t aware of like, the utter hatred of this place until I started doing club nights and stuff. But people from LA, the hipsters or whatever you want to call them—the young people in LA do not want to come out here for any reason. I guess that’s how it’s influenced me—it’s like you live in the Valley, or you live Pasadena or maybe Pomona even, and you end up knowing all of LA county because you live outside of it.
