Los Angeles producer Kyle McCammon hosted a release party for his recent single “Love I Found” (feat. Tyler Mann) at High Tide on an alluringly warm Friday night. Underneath a canopy of palms and inside the foggy baby-blue, club friends and fans gathered to hear McCammon play songs from his latest project Plus. It’s under that moniker that McCammon has been releasing music since only last year, but his expansive and enthralling soundscapes have already made an impression. The project has also been a means for McCammon to collaborate with an ever-rotating group of other artists. “Love I Found,” which features Mann’s soaring vocals.
In many ways, High Tide appeared built for the sole purpose to house Plus’ effervescent beats. It felt like an adequately tropical and therefore humid night. And the heat only heightened when Plus finally invited Mann onstage so they could perform the new single together. It was safe to say the crowd had been vibing and drinking enough to find an ecstatic finale in the shuddering intimacy of the live performance and tiny stage.
But as the ghostly images of flamingos were projected onto McCammon’s body and the wall behind him — it was clear the energy wasn’t dying down anytime soon. Not with Plus at the helm. This is probably how you get such an eagerly frenetic crowd to dance the night away and sweat it through their clothes. If you have the chance to catch Plus in any capacity at any of the other magical venues Los Angeles has to offer, you owe yourself a night of enjoying the impassioned dance fever his music inspires.
