But hip-hop is only one of the styles that will be on display at Audiotistic. Nearly every variation of dance and electronic music will be well-represented, from the smooth, future-jazz stylings of LTJ Bukem to the hip-quaking house of Roger Sanchez to the anthemish party tunes of DJ Dan to the raw energy of junglists Ed Rush and J Majik to the cut-up trickery of three-time turntablist world champion DJ Craze—sooooo many performers, in fact, that the flier for this Audiotistic stretches 12 pages.
Having already proved his ability to throw a good party, Solis seems to have fixed last year's flaws by chopping the crowd size and cutting the drive time. You may not get to dance until the sun comes up, but for a local rave that truly is local, this oughta be a blast.
