Betta Promotions begins their May anniversary celebrations with a “Dance Party Throwdown” with DJ sets from some of the biggest hitters in Chicago! True Villain (Skyler), Midnight Conspiracy, Kid Color and Brookah, Alex Zelanka, and DJ Pacheco this Saturday, May 1st at Subterranean.
Chicago’s very own Skyler Mendoza turns into the True Villain will headline the night and keep the kids moving. 2009 Lollapalooza performer, Skyler has played at many of the top Chicago nightclubs and was named one of Chicago’s best DJs by NBC Chicago. With a background like that he’s sure to get any party started! The True Villain himself will have them sweating all night long with his unique old school house jams mixed with modern day electro and progressive sounds that’ll be hard to find anywhere else.
With recent performances in Austin for SXSW and WMC in Miami, and now supporting their official Crystal Castles remix newcomers Midnight Conspiracy are making a name for themselves and heating up dance parties and clubs beyond the midwest. In Chicago they’ve developed a steady spread of word of mouth from their performances at Lincoln Hall, Beauty Bar, and their residencies at After Dark at The Art Institute of Chicago, Disappear Here and Limelight at Spybar. “Midnight Conspiracy have surpassed the label of “up-and-coming”, and have established themselves as relevant contributors to remix artistry.” – Aux
