Daniel of LA RIOTS // Interview

Despite hating interviews, Daniel talks with Lorn about upcoming tracks, favorite performances, and touring with The Crystal Method and MSTRKRFT.

It was an absolute pleasure talking with Daniel. He’s one chill dude and musically talented.  The interview took place in the back lounge of his tour bus and was very relaxed.  It was cool hearing his stories about the larger festivals he’s played and the experience a DJ has at shows.


(Daniel was kind enough to let me snap a photo of him during his set)

The LA RIOTS set at USC12 was the highlight of the night for me, but the crowd was a disappointment.  No one seemed to be dancing for any of the artist performing (The Crystal Method and The Prodigy.)


(Mad props on the GO GO dancers Daniel! Unfortunately security escorted me off stage when I started dancing with them)

LA RIOTS remix Crystal Castles – Crimewave

LA RIOTS remix The Ting Tings – That’s not my name

If u like to get down make, sure to download the FREE LA RIOTS Mix tape.

A few things were cut from this interview due to time constraints.  He also made it very clear that he is one hard working DJ. He hasn’t been home for more then 12 hours in the last 6 months, and with festival season on the horizon, things will not be slowing down for him either.
