Mad Decent Block Party Video: Twerking, Tweaking, and Florida's Own DJ Remedy

Last Saturday was the Mad Decent label's second annual block party at Revolution Live. Lord have mercy, the thing was packed! This was the first date on a pretty large US tour for the Diplo-headed bass fest. And the photos don't lie, Florida freaking loves its bass.

The lineup included Riff Raff, Action Bronson, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, and even Florida DJ and producer Remedy. Mid-concert, we made our way through the dense and dancing crowd to speak with him about the perks of the experiencing the block party right here in SoFla. Videographer James Argyropoulos got the scoop and caught the crowd in action.
