When electronic duo Streetlab began mixing tracks in 2001, the act cut its teeth performing live in what was becoming a dying scene: New York raves.
"It was the best live experience," Ryan Leary recalls. "We had a ton of space to work with. It was inspiring, because people always gave you a positive reaction by dancing."
After the parties ended, Leary and Mark "Coz" Lamorg wanted to keep dancing. Streetlab has since built up an impressive set of club-ready commissioned remixes from such acts as Crystal Castles, Nine Inch Nails and Kinski, plus several original grooves of its own.
