The “Los Angeles-based oldskool harcore deejay” embodies an older (yet arguably much more expressive) idea of a raver, complete with JNCO jeans, kandi bracelets and virtuosic scratching skills. His lightning-speed mixes, like the one above recorded at Tunnel Vision, are cartoonish, mind-bending collages of genres like happy hardcore, breakbeat and gabber that prove, at least in LA, that hardcore will never die.

Listen to the mix above.
