Jimmy Maheras [US]

Behind the curtain and beneath the seductive glimmer of Los Angeles you’ll find Jimmy Maheras pulling the levers, creating the soundtrack to an adventure you didn’t know was about to happen.

Los Angeles based DJ and Producer Jimmy Maheras is a cornerstone of California’s electronic music scene that has been steadily contributing to the development of modern house and techno music through a variety of music projects over the past few years.

As one half of Plastic Love, Maheras (with partner Bas) hosts a series of house and techno themed events that promote local talent alongside international touring guests at venues such as Lot 613, The Standard Rooftop, and underground warehouse spaces.

As a natural extension of their collaboration the duo launched Plastic Love Recordings in 2014 to further developed their signature sound and collaborate with artists such as Timothy Fairplay, Cottam, October, and Brassica in the 12” DJ record format.

More recently Maheras has extended his talent as a label curator with Into The Woods, a new vinyl imprint that takes his sound further underground with remixes by artists such as Radioactive Man and Jared Wilson. Into The Woods has spawned a new party already making an impact in Los Angeles with underground bookings including Delta Funktionen, Basic Soul Unit, Luke Hess and Patrice Scott.

As a producer Maheras uses his dance floor knowledge to create DJ focused tracks that combine elements of house, techno, acid, and electro on labels such as Plastic Love, Into the Woods, Crosstown Rebels/RebelLion, Supernature, Leftroom and more. Most recently Maheras has combined talents with Photocall (Eli Epstein) on their rave revival project, CAZION.
