143 began in April 2013 by three local Los Angeles DJs - 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 committed to building community, spreading the experience beyond Los Angeles city limits to cities all over the world.
