The here and the now of dance music collide as Philly’s Diplo and French duo Justice team up for this massive show. A prolific DJ, producer, remixer and promoter of upcoming talents, Diplo claims the title “Here” for his ability to take new sounds from around the globe and work them into his mix. Not only taking the sounds he encounters during his travels, Diplo’s worked to promote the local scenes, helping to launch the careers of M.I.A., Bonde Do Role and DJ Blaqstarr. His sound is always moving, just like the packed dance floors he attracts. With the runaway success of their unpronounceable debut “†,” Justice is most certainly the “Now” of the club scene. Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay scored a massive hit with the ubiquitous and much-remixed “D.A.N.C.E.” and they’ve been causing mayhem on dance floors all over with their other savage beats. Now they’re building a legend with live rig and custom lights. This will not be a night for wallflowers. (Noah Levine)
