VELVET SPEAKEASY - DL Jones
LA RIOTS (Fool's Gold, LA)
A lot has happened since LA Riots branded dance music with a bawdy blend of Indie electro in 2007. Founding partner Daniel LeDisko of New Zealand has since teamed with fellow veteran DJ/producer Jon Pegnato to reinvent a sound that melds influences of techno, house and drum n' bass. In widening their production scope, LA Riots has managed to maintain underground credibility while remixing for some of the industry's premier pop and rock labels.
Their high-profile productions have landed even higher profile gigs in 2009, including tours with The Crystal Method (“Divided by Night”) and a second with MSTRKRFT as well as appearances at Chicago's Lollapalooza, ULTRA Music Festival in Miami (2008 and 2009) and Belgium's Pukklepop Festival. Additionally, Beatport named them as “Break Out Stars” at 2010's Winter Music Conference.
