Heroes x Villains
I was asked to attend this show by Revolution Live in order to get promotional images for them. There are some great shots in here since I was able to use flash and have full access to the entire venue.
Daniel Disaster and Pete Heartless are the production duo behind Heroes x Villains. They began as two punk kids from the depths of the Dirty South, notorious for blowing speakers during their chaotic DJ sets as teenagers.
The pair remain creatively connected despite divergent lifestyles. Pete Heartless maintains a quiet, relatively normal life while Daniel Disaster seems content to exist with his feet dangling ever so slightly over the edge. He spent several years behind the boards at Grand Hustle Records as an engineer working alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake, Lil' Wayne, T.I. and Young Jeezy.
Armed with this experience, roots in punk/hardcore, and an appreciation for Southern rap music, Heroes x Villains started their ascent. Warbling, bass heavy, electronic dance music remixes of Waka Flocka Flame's "Oh Let's Do It" and Gucci Mane's "Lemonade", a remix of Lil' Jon and Diplo's "U Don't Like Me" and several others made up their first mixtape called "We Off That" which garnered critical acclaim.
