Daybreaker brings exhilarating beats out of the club scene and into the light

Daybreaker’s version of
a morning commute

A dance party before dawn might sound like an oxymoron. But grooving before the sun rises is the raison d’être of Daybreaker, a “morning movement” that throws deejayed dance parties in the early a.m. across cities throughout the globe.

On Thursday, Daybreaker L.A. takes over Playa Vista-adjacent co-working space CTRL Collective with a “whiteout” party starting way before most late-night partiers are even awake: 6:30 a.m. Whether you decide to dress up in a ball gown or roll in wearing your pajamas, be sure to wear white for this dance party deejayed by French deep house duo FDVM.

“Their music is what dancing barefoot on a beach with your best friends and a bottle of wine sounds like,” effuses The Sights and Sounds Music Magazine.

Your typical Daybreaker party is alcohol-free, but expect free coffee, juices and breakfast bites to complement the tunes. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all.

And if you’re a real early bird, a yoga sesh kicks off the festivities at 5:30 a.m. But don’t forget to bring your own yoga mat.
