Known for his extra-long sets, Guy Gerber demands stamina from his audiences. His 12-hour performance at Burning Man in 2014 is lore among the scene.

He now returns to Los Angeles for the return of his globetrotting RUMORS party, which found a singular home in LA four years ago. Gerber pioneered the outdoor location of the historic Gin Ling Alley in Chinatown for a sunset into night event. Featuring the finest underground DJ talent, RUMORS LA is a one-of-a-kind party, that could only have been conceived by the contrarian imagination of Gerber.

Danish house and techno DJ and producer Rune Reilly Kölsch is better known simply as Kölsch. Respected for his deeply emotive style, Kölsch's records under Speicher, part of Cologne's long-lived Kompakt label, a deeply influential group on the electronic scene. Kölsch is a selector on the decks and in the studio, guaranteed to turn your nights upside down.

French electronic artist Sébastien Devaud , better known as Agoria, has been in love with the electronic genre since the age of 12, growing up in the French countryside.

We are thrilled to welcome Apparat to KCRW in celebration of the fresh release of LP5, for an exclusive guest mix on Metropolis.

The new record is heavily influenced by Sascha Ring's experience making music with Moderat. Listeners will find sublime, delicate and unexpected twists in track after track on LP5. The album stands as a testament to Ring's work with elegiac techno and ambient soundscapes that embrace a universal sonic beauty.

Set List:

We are thrilled to welcome Nightmares On Wax to KCRW for an exclusive guest mix on Metropolis.

In his label's own words:

The marriage of soul, hip-hop, dub and timeless club sounds that N.O.W. has been mutating and perfecting for years finds perhaps its most fluid form yet on his latest album in nearly half a decade, Shape The Future.

The resulting sound is both familiar and thrilling to longtime fans, with the kind of deep-in-the-pocket grooves and sticky melodies Nightmares on Wax is known for.

Following a five-show run at the famed Troubadour in West Hollywood, Calif., Latin alt-rock band Café Tacvba brought its infectious energy to KCRW's studios for a live performance on MBE. The group pulled from its diverse catalogue over the course of the set, including this hypnotic take on "Enamorada."

Canadian duo Bob Moses brought more of a full-band production to its sophomore album Battle Lines; the pair, known for their electronic palette, showcases a straight-ahead rock and roll swagger with "Eye for an Eye."

Irish singer Hozier became a global superstar, thanks to his powerful self-titled debut album. He released a new EP this past September — Nina Cried Power — and visited KCRW to perform new work, including this version of the title track replete with a soaring choir.

Following a lengthy break between albums, veteran indie band DeVotchKa returned with This Night Falls Forever in August. The sweeping, cinematic sounds the band offers up are perfectly suited for the autumnal season, including this warm-toned version of "Let Me Sleep."

KCRW welcomed Cat Power for her first live radio session behind her latest album, Wanderer. "In Your Face" features Power's vocals front and center as she strips things back for a hushed performance.
