LA native Kevin Litrow's "LITRONIX" is a one-man music machine.

Technologically based off the roots of repetition through high-tech loop pedals, Kevin creates pop structures coloring the songs with dynamic layers of warm analog synthesizers, micro tonally open tuned guitar, bass heavy polyrhythmic electronic beats and soulful vocal melodies on top. The beats are created from either beat boxing, drum machines, or just experimenting with what toys or instruments are around at the time. The vocals are what drive the soul of the sound and command the listener to either think deep or dance hard. Each song has it's own character and is it's own painting with it's own subject. Every subject has a deep meaning or a story to tell.

Litronix is much different than a DJ. When performing live, the beats are sent separately through a PA system while most of the other loops are sent through tube amps. The sound is delivered as if there are multiple band members. And watching Litronix perform live is a spectacle, as Kevin is an experienced true performer / singer / dancer.

In the past, Kevin has been the sole creator of bands such as "Dance Disaster Movement" Released on Steve Aoki's Dimmak Records and 60 Watt Kid. He has shared the stage and toured extensively with acts such as Ariel Pink, Broadcast, The Kills, The Gossip, Peaches, Blood Brothers, Ian MacKaye, Prince Rama, Blok Party, Best Coast, Mum.

Formed in 1989 or thereabouts, this band played backyard kegger parties at their friends houses until the friends came of age, that's when BG's illustrious career as a bar band started to take shape. Somewhere around 1991 original lead guitar player Markus Seitz left the band and the OC to attend college. Markus' style of playing was signature to the sound the band had begun to forge, and his departure left a giant pair of shoes to fill. Fortunately, it wasn't long until veteran OC punk rock guitarist Frank Agnew was recruited to play lead guitar and things started looking up for the fledgling band. Frank's virtuoso guitar chops brought a whole new flavor to Daren Carlson's unique style of songwriting, thus marking the beginning of the band's heyday. Frank stayed with the band for a couple of years as it built it's local following and enjoyed a prolific period of songwriting. Like all good things, Frank's tenure on lead guitar came to an end sometime in 93 when he and his future wife, Libby, were recruited to join Rule 62 with Brian Coakley of Cadillac Tramps fame. The band once again found itself without a lead guitar player. After a period of trying out what seemed to be a hundred guitar players, Frank came forward and notified his former band mates that he had found his own replacement, a kid named Andrew Galvez who had been studying guitar under Frank. Andrew had absorbed Frank's playing style like a sponge, so he was a natural fit and remains the band's lead guitarist to this day. Once again, BG was a complete unit and set out on a mission to play wherever it could for whoever would listen. This approach worked well for the band as it built it's fanbase...people started showing up in respectable numbers to see them. At some point after Andrew had been with the band for awhile, it was decided Daren would relinquish rhythm guitar duties so he could focus on being a frontman. His older brother, Jered Carlson, was brought in to fill the open guitar slot.
