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.
Saturday, you can witness his craft for yourself when White Room has him on the decks along side local DJ Damaged Goods. Tickets go for $10.
