The Crosstown Rebels Celebrate 10 Years: Edition Two

Music

/ February 11, 2013

More than just a record label, The Crosstown Rebels pride themselves on being a deeply driven, free-spirited collective with a tight crew and global following; constantly expanding, they have a music festival and a TV series to boot. Hitting the 10-year mark since their conception, Crosstown Rebels are celebrating their anniversary with an epic world tour that will hit five continents and 18 countries in 2013, with no less than 25 artists on the bill, and a promise to stay true to the rebellious freedom that Rebel Raves have provided show-goers in the past. In addition to the tour, they are putting out a three-disc release to showcase their reasons for upholding their position as a revered and eclectic source of music in the electronic dance community.

Not only are they respected for their music, but also for their film series, Rebel Rave TV, which launched in 2009 and is a product of collaboration with filmmaker David Terranova. Also notable is their penchant for throwing parties outside of the supposed safety and stale comfort that typical dancefloors offer, the most intriguing of which was the Day Zero festival, which was thrown at a pyramid site in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, and coincided with the end of the Mayan calendar. Damian Lazarus, whose sense of curiosity and humor are the ingredients of The Rebels’ manifestation, is responsible for the discovery and nurturing of many upcoming producers from around the world. It is his vision and passion for experimental music that led to The Crosstown Rebels being crowned 2011’s no.1 by Resident Advisor, electronic music’s favorite magazine.

Join us in wishing The Crosstown Rebels a happy 10-year anniversary, and check out some of the stops that they will be making across the globe on their big tour! Here’s to 10 more years!
