The DJ/producer duo known as L.A. Riots are definitely products of 2k8, an amped-up redux of French house and new electro mashed through the hyperspeed of the blogosphere. Making music together for just under two years, the twosome of Daniel LeDisko and Jo B quickly garnered massive downloads of their remixes for alt favorites like Hot Chip, VHS or Beta, and, of course, Justice. Their cut-up of the latter's "DVNO" became a bona fide dance-floor smash, a stuttering, stamping, vocal-propelled edit that swells, tornado-style, to a strobe-light-ready, computer-disco meltdown. Such addictive, indelibly Left Coast creations garnered the guys a deal with the similarly minded Fool's Gold imprint as well as one of those Scion-funded mix/sampler deals into which the car company keeps pumping marketing money. Nuance is used only sparsely in L.A. Riots' sonic vocabulary — this is strictly for those who like their dance music relentlessly distorted, anthemic, crunchy, and banging. And while plenty of internet remixers with mysterious MySpace photos pop up every day, L.A. Riots remain among the cream of the sunglasses-at-night crop.
