Levitt LA’s summer long coming of age party continues to reflect the cultural mosaic of Los Angeles with an outstanding lineup while enjoying an iconic LA outdoor setting in historic MacArthur Park.

Since September 2, 2006, Boombox has provided a home for Los Angeles hip hop lovers to gather every first Saturday of the month and celebrate the genre’s most respected DJs and producers.
One of the original turntablists, J. Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic, but has done just as much on his own as in a group setting. He began DJing in the mid-’80s with a California group named PSK.

William Benjamin Bensussen, better known by his stage name The Gaslamp Killer, is an American alternative hip hop producer and DJ based in Los Angeles, California.
Associated with quality music and events in Los Angeles and across the country for over 20 years. Monalisa has supported various artists as both a music promoter and fan before taking her love of music to the turntables 16 years ago. Her music format is described as “anything with a groove”, ranging from soul, funk, & hip hop to rock, pop, jazz-funk & world music but also includes less familiar and undiscovered gems & jams of all genres.
An LA native DJ, vinyl collector, party promoter, and headband advocate. He is a 20+ year DJ veteran, his signature blend of hip hop, future beats, & dusty breaks, has brought him from tiny mid-city dive bars to rowdy festival stages in France to the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall. His monthly party, Boombox, has been bringing the real to DTLA’s Chinatown district since 2006.
Based in Southern California, Ben Diggin is a co-founder/resident DJ of Boombox. His style is influenced by all the great DJs/Musicians to come out of the West Coast. A collector of vinyl for over 24 years; Ben is a brand ambassador/collaborator with Damir Brand.
He has over 20 years of experience with skills that have earned him the respect of turntablist legends. Known for both his deep music selections and intricate cuts, Analog has evolved from being a student of DJ culture into one of the scene’s brightest innovators, and has recently become an official Staff member at Los Angeles’ premiere DJ school: the Beat Junkie Institute of Sound.
