Olmec Speaks About Tonight's Shiva Rave

[Via VC Soundsystem]
The biannual Shiva Rave returns tonight! spoke to DJ Olmec, who is one of the event's organizers as well as DJs.

So what can students expect? "The space is decked out in grungy decor, the sound system's upgraded to 1000 watts, and for the first time in the event's history we've hired a professional headliner to tear the house down!" says Olmec. He is referring to DJ Ayres, who according to Olmec, "is founder of The Rub and Flashing Lights, NYC monthly parties that have both quickly become staples of NYC nightlife. Ayres has played across the globe with the likes of Public Enemy, A-Trak, The Chemical Brothers, DJ AM, Z-Trip, Diplo, Santogold, LCD Soundsystem, Justice and countless more, cementing his status as a key player in American club culture."

In addition to Olmec and Ayres, the night will feature DJ DANCEPIG (Chris Martel '12) and DJ DJ (Axel Yung '13).

This will be VC Soundsystem's first event under their new name

"Ayres goes on at 12:30, but by that time the line will no doubt be out the door.  Make sure to arrive early," Olmec says.
