An up-and-coming talent in national electronic scene, DJ Retro recently toured and collaborated with such acts as Dirty South, The Cube Guys, Bimbo Jones, Sander Van Doorn, Fonzerelli, Kurd Maverick, Spencer & Hill, Adam K, Kaskade, Robbie Rivera, Stonebridge, Laidback Luke, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, Seamus Haji, Thomas Gold, DJ Dan, and Deadmau5.
DJ Mondo (of After Dark Records) is known in Florida for his high-energy dance. With a mix of house, breaks, trance, and mash-ups, he's toured the East Cost numerous times the likes of Tiesto, Paul van Dyke, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten, Benny Benassi, BT, Oscar G, Bad Boy Bill, DJ Icey, Baby Anne, ATB, The Crystal Method, DJ AM, and others.
Charleston native Jake Butler arranged this gig to showcase the mix of electronic styles. "The Music Farm is the perfect venue for DJs to spin because of the advantage of such a large dance floor, killer lighting, great sound, and solid management," Butler says in a recent press release. "Bringing national DJs such as Retro and Mondo to Charleston will help introduce this city to a whole new audience that would not necessarily think of Charleston when it came to progressive dance music."
