I probably won’t do an interview or photo shoot but here is an amazing picture of a cat. http://instagr.am/p/ZIgPg/

I love the Internet and pissing off your Mom and Dad (especially if they’re hippies).

Love You.


Dillon Francis is a Los Angeles-based electronic music producer and D.J. A pioneer in the moombahton genre of (110 bpm fame), Francis first signed with Mad Decent, releasing his first official EP, Westside, in early 2011. His dancehall ‘Westside’ and ‘Masta Blasta’ became an underground sensation amongst the electronic dance community. Francis has continued on to collaborate and remix artists including Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Diplo, A-Trak, Zedd, Madeon, Flux Pavilion, Jack Beats, Digitalism, Chuckie, Kill The Noise amongst others. His latest EP, Something Something Awesome, was released in February 2012 through Skrillex’s label OSWLA. Francis continues to play international festivals and is currently on his first US headline tour w/ Flosstradamus, Baauer, and RL Grime.
Oliver - (Set time: 9:55 PM)
Oliver
Oliver have found the beating heart inside the dance machine. Whether moving bodies at the world’s biggest electronic festivals, or hand-crafting digital gems in the studio, the producer / DJ duo of U-Tern and Oligee are responsible for some of the funkiest, toughest, and most diverse dance music today.

After spending years writing, producing, DJing and digging for vinyl, U-Tern and Oligee linked up in LA to forge something groundbreaking. They took their shared ‘80s baby tastes – relentlessly groovy R&B, boombox worthy hip-hop, soaring electropop hooks – and mashed them together in remixes for everyone from Chromeo and Foster The People to Breakbot and techno godfather Juan Atkins. Original jams like “All Night” and “Dirty Talk” (supported by dance music luminaries like Alan Braxe and Busy P) took Oliver’s back-to-the-future sound even further, while high-powered collaborations with A-Trak (“Disco Nap”) and Destructo (“LA Funky”) brought the duo to the festival circuit, where they kept hands in the air all summer. With the release of their Fool’s Gold EP Mechanical, Oliver push their hybrid sound to even funkier new horizons. The stadium worthy opener “MYB” perfectly segues into the moody strut of “Night Is On My Mind,” before shifting gears with the hands-in-the-air ecstasy of “Control” and riding off into the sunset on the title track’s cinematic pulse. With non-stop DJ sets on deck (complete with Oligee’s live keyboard riffs) and even more new music, there’s no telling where the beats will take them next. “Oliver is all over the map,” says U-Tern. “But we’re going to have a good time no matter what.”
Ozker
Ozker
While the District of Columbia has seen a fluctuation of creative types recently, few artists have influenced the scene as prolifically as OZKER. Organic and locally grown, OZKER has established himself in the past few years as one of DC's hardest working DJ, producer, graphic designer and mural artist, all the while spreading that undeniable aura of being a loveable, huggable type of guy. His devotion to the infectious groove and its counterpart, the bottomless beat, is matched only by his devotion to that trademark follicle foliage that you're bound to see bobbing up and down behind turntables throughout the city!

OZKER has opened for such noted talent as Dillon Francis, The Bloody Beetroots, Will Eastman, Gigamesh, Classixx, Tensnake, Oliver, The 2 Bears, Holy Ghost!, Anna Lunoe, Bit Funk, Ben Browning (of Cut Copy), Midnight Magic, Nickodemus & Luke The Knife (of Lotus) amongst many others. He holds several monthly residencies in the city, including nights at Eighteenth St Lounge, Dodge City, Marvin, Looking Glass and The Velvet Lounge.
