An after party for the 2008 Detroit Electronic Music Festival
2 miles from Hart Plaza – Head northeast on E. Jefferson Ave. turn right onto Joseph Campau Street!
LA Riots (Los Angeles)
LA Riots exploded on the national scene in 2007 with a killer unauthorized remix of Justice and then offered up edit after stuttering vocal edit of the likes of Chromeo, Photek, The Cure, Kid Sister, The Scanners, Mystery Jets, and Hot Chip. After years of DJ’ing the top clubs in Hollywood, LA Riots are now taking over dance floors across the nation.
Reigning electro kings MSTRKRFT say that “LA Riots are the best in L.A. Whenever we play with them, we know we really have to bring our best… and not many DJs make us nervous!”
DJ Zebo (Chicago)
Urb Magazine boasts that this 2008 Next 100 artist sounds like a “renegade junglist from the future infiltrating a ’99 South-Side Chicago juke party.” In other words … DJ Zebo throws down the schizophrenic dance and hip hop genre bending style known as Baltimore Club. With four Chicago residencies you know this guy can deliver the goods.
DJ Howlermonkey (Pittsburgh)
DJ Howlermonkey plays diverse sets that fuse modern and retro styles of electrofunk, electrohouse, R&B, and disco all with a common driving and highly energetic motif: a marriage of cocaine 80's Miami and early 90's rave. His mixes have taken the net by storm, being featured on blogs including: Pitchforkmedia, Discobelle, Fluokids, and New York Magazine.
