This year, Voodoo Experience is bringing back the dance tent, called “Le Plur,” with a lineup of A-list DJs, including Rusko, Hot Chip, Crystal Method, Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, and deadmau5. Our local dance-music DJs will be represented as well though, with Beverly Skillz, Carmine P. Filthy, Javier Drada, Christoph Andersson and Swiss Chriss all opening the tent throughout the weekend.
To get a taste of the dance tent flavor, OffBeat asked producer/DJ Christopher Rengel, a.k.a. Swiss Chriss, to kick off what will be a regular series of OffBeat Guest Mixes with his own mix of electro dance tracks, including some of his own remixes that highlight his production skills. Swiss Chriss is best known as a resident DJ at the monthly party Electronic Takeover, and he’ll be playing along with other Takeover DJs Christoph Andersson, and DS@STR on Saturday night at Ampersand (moved from the CAC) for the Voodoo After Dark show, opening for Boyz Noize. Check out his guest mix for OffBeat below, and catch him again at the next Electronic Takeover on November 20.
Swiss Chriss plays Sunday, October 31 at 12:15 p.m. in Le Plur, presented by Billboard.com.
Updated, 10/27 2:45 p.m.: Jim-E Stack was mistakenly included in the list of Takeover DJs playing Voodoo After Dark on Saturday. The error was corrected.
