Dylan Eiland, better known as Le Castle Vania, is a product of the mid-decade electro-house scene -- or blog-house -- which produced superstars like Justice, MSTRKRFT and Steve Aoki. While many proclaimed the genre was here to stay, it didn't last. Instead, it evolved and quickly replaced by nu-disco, progressive house and dubstep, while others looked more toward a return to form of simplistic indie dance rock, electro and electroclash.
So where does that leave Le Castle Vania?
The Atlanta-based DJ/producer hasn't complete shunned his electro-house past, but he's definitely moved a bit away from it. He's stayed relevant by remixing his contemporaries like The Virgins as well as producing his own tracks and DJing all over the world. He also started a side project with LA DJ Blake Miller called Lies in Disguise.
