But while Cole works with James to perfect his DJ skills, Cole also grows close to James' girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski), leading to tension between Cole and James. To make matters worse, Ollie, Squirrel and Mason get involved with a real estate venture with Paige (Jon Bernthal), and grow distant from Cole.

    Video: YouTube

    Ollie: I just read about this guy, right, who invented Instagram. He sold it for $400 million. Now he was 26 years old. You guys want to make real money or do you want to live and die in the valley?
    Cole: We gotta get out of here.

    Ollie urges the crew of guys to find their own niche, the one that will get them out of the valley and into fame and fortune. They need to stop working for the man and make men out of themselves.

    Get Your Head Out of That Laptop

    James: Any successful artist has this moment where they stop being an admirer and they find their signature. Sounds have soul. Build them from scratch. Find new ones. Get your head out of that laptop and start listening to what the world's trying to tell you.

    James urges Cole to step out from behind his laptop and search the real world for sounds that will give him the edge over others. Music needs to have that human element, something a computer cannot do alone.

    This Party's Looking a Little Stiff

    Sophie: Hey, you know this party's looking a little stiff.
    Cole: So what are you saying? I need to amp it up.
    Sophie: I mean, you can try.
    Cole: It's the DJ's job to get the crowd out of their heads and into their bodies. I like to start them off at about 125 beats per minute. Once you've locked onto their heart rate, you start bringing them up song by song. 128 beats per minute, that's the magic number.

    When DJing a party, Cole meets a pretty young woman, Sophie, who urges him to pump up the crowd. As a DJ, Cole does just that, which is what he does best.
