It's June. Summer is upon us. We are starting it proper with the innovator of Moombahton. The definition of modern tropical. The infamous Dave Nada. This man has invented a style of dance music that has hips shakin from Beijing to Bermuda. Asses bouncing from Paris to Philly. Now WE have him kicking off the summer Lights Down Low series. Setting up the tropical tinged vibe of the night we have our good friend and IHEARTCOMIX mas...termind, Franki Chan. Next up is the hottest new UK funky/garage/tropical producer out there: Canblaster. Get ready to get low...

ABOUT DAVE NADA: Known for his ability to get people on the dancefloor and keep them there, Baltimore's Dave Nada has quickly established himself as one of the U.S.'s most sought after DJ/producers. He has been featured in Spin Magazine, URB, Fader, XLR8R, the Washington Post, Philadelphia Weekly, and the Baltimore and Washington City Papers. His debut "Kick Out The Jams!" EP on T&A Records was listed #1 on Turntable Lab's top sellers chart. While these are all great reasons to be excited about Dave Nada performing at LDL, its really all about MOOMBAHTON. Nada was at his younger cousin's homecoming skipping party in fall of 2009: “There I was. Waiting to DJ. The only adult standing around a bunch of drunk ass high school Latino kids wildin’ out to Reggeaton in a basement during a school day in the DC suburbs. These kids were going crazy and there ain’t no way in hell I’ma play Nadastrom house shit and mess up this groove. I’m a DJ first and foremost, and the last thing you want is an empty floor. Stakes is high. So in order to roll with the reggaeton tempo, I decided to slow down one of the biggest bangers I had, Afrojack‘s remix of “Moombah” by Chuckie & Silvio Ecomo. I thought it kinda sounded like fast Reggaeton anyway, and damn was I right! Next thing I know the entire room went mental. After that, I started making my own edits and DJ tools to play out, and thus “Moombahton” was born (simple math: “Moombah” + Reggae”TON” = “Moombahton.” #swag)." It’s 2011, Moombahton is roughly a year old and it’s the fastest growing genre out there. Essentially music doesn't get more fun and we can't wait to have the godfather himself here to show us how its done proper.

ABOUT CANBLASTER: 2010 was a good year for French producer Canblaster (a.k.a. Cédric Steffens), as the Club Cheval resident and former Bubblin' subject debuted with the Jetpack EP and also dropped a string of hyperactive, genre-hopping remixes for the likes of Spoek Mathambo, Drop the Lime, J-Wow, Teki Latex, and others. Whether he's experiencing sonic ADD or simply allowing his youthful exuberance to run wild, Canblaster's DJ stylings appear to be just as schizophrenic as his production work, as his podcast bounces between hip-hop, R&B, house, rave, juke, electro, tribal guarachero, and more. We've seen the man live and its definitely something awesome to experience yourself. He doesn't disappoint.

ABOUT FRANKI CHAN: Diligence, tenacity, and creative vision are what set DJ and IHEARTCOMIX Records owner Franki Chan apart from the rest. His signature fedora and thick rimmed glasses have become a regular presence worldwide, with notable appearances at festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza, clubs like the legendary Fabric in London, and everywhere in between. His mixing craft and ability to forecast what’s next have turned this digital punk version of Clark Kent into an artist that will continue to provide dance floors with the salvation they’ve been looking for. Franki’s endless touring schedule has led him to share the stage with a barrage of talented artists such as Justice, Diplo, Boys Noize, A-Trak, and Drop The Lime to name a few. Franki is a great friend to LDL and is just as excited to bring the heat he's known for to the stage. We can't wait.

ABOUT DEEVICE: Collecting vinyl was always a passion with Deevice long before he became a resident at the legendary Sub Club in Glasgow, which has been home to Soma Records techno ambassadors, Slam aka Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle, and more recently to the JD Twitch and JG Wilkes party Optimo. Now living in San Francisco, Deevice is the host of the SF Bay Guardian's "Best of the Bay" award winning radio show "GridLock" broadcasting every Thursday, 12pm-2pm on Radio Valencia 87.9FM radiovalencia.fm.
