BALSE project is a Los Angeles, California based social enterprise, centered around culture research and event production.  The main output of the organization is the monthly private club event, BALSE, curated by Yohei Abe, presenting the moment through contemporary techno, minimal, and house music.  

We are dedicated to researching and producing an increasingly elevated sound and cultural experience in a smaller organic setting. 

We look forward to having you at our next event.
