about

143 began in 2013 by three local LA DJ’s; Partytime, siik, and SOSUPERSAM, who wanted to create an environment where Los Angelenos could hang out and pay homage to the almighty love song.  The name "1-4-3" is a fond call back to the 90's pager code for "I love you." 143 garnered such a strong response that within just a few months, the party filled dive bars to capacity with a steady line of eager R&B enthusiasts down the block.

143 is known for keeping the crowd on its toes with secret guest DJ's and surprise performances.  Past guest DJs include ?uest Love, Mr. Carmack, A-Trak, Shlohmo, Ryan Hemsworth, and Ta-Ku.  Sisqo, Jon B.and Ginuwine have popped in for a surprise performance.  Artists and DJ pals from all over the world like Nick Catchdubs, Nina Las Vegas, JMSN, and Donnis have been spotted on any given night enjoying the vibe.

143 has spread beyond Los Angeles city limits, having appeared across the United States in New York City, Honolulu, Miami, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, and San Diego.  In 2017, 143 expands internationally with dates in Manila, Jakarta, Berlin, and Amsterdam, with more locations on the horizon.
