Welcome to L.A. Underground.

As LA natives, the underground is our home and has given us so much, and we've always wanted to have a platform to give back to it. After talking about doing our own podcast for years, we decided to team with our good friend and artist on the label, Samuel Roukin (@roukinmusic), to present his L.A. Underground podcast, featuring interviews and mixes from various participants in Los Angeles' dance music scene.

It’s great to hear Sam bring on artists that are members of the genuine underground scene in Los Angeles. Being a part of it himself, he’s able to relate with the topics he discusses. Great podcast.
