MSTRKRFT, Felix Cartal, LA Riots

In early August 2006, Death From Above 1979 fans were left devastated as the presumptive murmurs of the band's split transpired into cold, hard fact.

Fortunately, former DFA bassist and synth-man Jesse F. Keeler still had some creativity of his own left. In 2005, Keeler hooked up with AL-P (Alex Puodziukas) who had produced DFA's You're a Woman, I'm a Machine, and together, the boys produced an onslaught of fiery dance beats. It didn't take long for this new duo to make a name for itself as MSTRKRFT, igniting dance floors with their new sound in the process.

MSTRKRFT's Fist of God tour also finds on the bill fellow Canadian DJ Felix Cartal and Los Angeles-based electro group, LA Riots.
