The Glitch Mob isn't your average DJ group.

In fact, these guys don't usually DJ. They're one of those rare, talented acts who play electronic instruments. And they even help design those instruments, as well as the stage production behind their performances.

We've caught them in the act and we've been blown away. So we were stoked at the chance to chat with the Los Angeles-based Mob during the first day of Ultra Music Festival 2014.

The topics of conversation include the successful new album Love Death Immortality, their new stage design, and why ravers need to disconnect to connect.
