Los Angeles outfit Electrolightz knows exactly how to stir up the dancefloor with their party-starting, peppy blend of pop, dance and hip hop. For the past few years, rapper Namebrand, singer Rami Dearest, production/keyboard wizz e-Roc and beatmaker Barry Romance have been tuning their genre-mashing blend of pop by cranking out remixes and mixtapes, and playing shows to slowly but surely build a scene around their music.
Following the release of their debut album "It Happened Over Night" late last year, Electrolightz returns today with "Bang With The Lightz On," a brand-new mixtape which includes a mixture of original tracks, plus remakes of popular tracks by artists like Robyn ("Dance Hall Queen") and Uffie ("Difficult"). Dynamite stuff. Check out a brief video interview that I did with the guys from their North Hollywood studio to chat a bit more about the mixtape and their unique sound.
