"A lot has happened since LA Riots branded dance music with a bawdy blend of Indie electro in 2007. Founding partner Daniel LeDisko has since teamed with fellow veteran DJ/producer Jon Pegnato to reinvent a sound that melds influences of techno, house and drum n’ bass. In widening their production scope, LA Riots has managed to maintain underground credibility while remixing for some of the industry’s premier pop and rock labels.

Forming on the 15th anniversary of 1992 Los Angeles Riots, LeDisko and then-partner J.O.B. (John O’Brien) launched their collaborative project on April 27, 2007. As the Indie dance rock sound exploded onto underground and mainstream club circuits, LA Riots became one of its brashest ambassadors, melding electro-laced beats over commercial savvy cuts and vocals."
