Presales link: http://fla.vor.us/ wafform.aspx?_act=eventview&_pky=120073&afflky=5RIPUI

A bangin, out of control experiment in multimedia communication, in an enormous virgin venue - right off New York Ave!

American Society for Deaf Children benefit event =^.^=

We all take our hearing for granted! So we have teamed up with friends to throw a charity party. All profit will be donated to the American Society for Deaf Children! Please show your support for this cause - even if you are not in the Washington DC area. We have LOTS more than just music at this charity event. Don't miss out - this will be one to remember for a very, very long time!

The legendary Boombox came from an age where our kind of dance music was just beginning. An age where people expressed themselves through street dancing, beat boxing, graffiti art, rhymes, and general social deviancy... Over time all of these behaviors became the norm, and we are where we are today. Get out on the streets, throw down your cardboard, pump up the volume, and get ready to party!

He has only been djing for one year but has gone instantly to the top of the rave, club, and pop scenes with his fresh teenage style, knowledge of at least a 1 year backlog of tracks direct off beatport's top 10 lists, and constantly barraging the crowds with epic breakdown tracks and dubstep basslines.

"Kontakt is the best thing to happen to dance music since the invention of MIDI. I can almost say even the synthesizer itself" - David Guetta, DJ Mag Oct 2011
But really... It doesn't matter how many years of this or that someone has under their belt, how many releases, or what number they are on the DJ List. It's about bringing the energy down on the party, and making it go off! Kontakt's been around long enough to know how to get it on, and then some. From Ultra to Burning Man, Kontakt has been there to bring it down. A heavenly slice of funky breakz electro flava will leave you needing to change your undies.

***Lara - Philly (Booty Bass) inciting Voder Records Robot Parliament

Lara is a lifelong musician and a longtime DJ. Having developed an interest in electronic music in grade school, and electronic dance music in college, Lara spent her early years working in the rave scene as a drum + bass DJ. She hosted several regular nights of her own, played at countless larger events alongside major names in DnB, and generally garnered a reputation (even within the confines of one genre) as a DJ who refused to be pigeonholed. But as she watched the music evolve, she became deeply dissatisfied with the rigidity of traditional underground dance music and began to use her stature as an established artist in the community to bend and break conventional understandings of electronic music, all the while refining her approach to the art of DJing. Today, Lara enjoys the unique position of the versatile DJ who can (and does) play almost any kind of electronic music with skill, taste and understanding; no matter what she's playing, expect a custom-designed set of the highest caliber, delivered with serious musicianship and 100% genuine passion, specifically engineered just to make you dance.

***Prinz-D The First Deaf Rapper (Hip Hop) DC AL

http://www.reverbnation.com/prinzd

Prinz-D The First Deaf Rapper was born and raised in the notorious Elyton Village projects of Birmingham, Alabama. When he was 3-month's old, his grandmother took custody of him and put him into deaf schools miles away from his local school district to avoid interacting with neighborhood kids who were headed towards a life of crime. Prinz-D grew a passion for hip hop at the age of 9 where for Christmas he received his first album by LL Cool J "Radio". While having a slight speech impediment at an early age, Prinz-D decided to take intensive speech therapy to improve his ability to become a recording artist. After graduating, he left for Washington, DC and attended Gallaudet University, a deaf college where he helped establish the first deaf African American fraternity named, Zeta Sigma Psi. His sense of leadership in the deaf community propelled him to become the first African American Student Body President. Faced with rejections in the hearing and deaf community, Prinz-D was faced with a myth that "deaf people cannot do music." He proved people wrong by buying his own studio equipment to record his first album independently, "Southern Comfort" which proved a lot of people wrong. It went on to sell over 500 copies locally and in the state of Alabama.
