Scottsdale will be graced by some of the most talented and diverse DJs in the game this weekend. Up-and-coming talent, a Valley native and veteran names will be headlining at some of the top venues all weekend.
MILO & OTIS @MAYA DAY + NIGHT CLUB
Milo & Otis, a side-project between two Orlando based DJs Killagraham and NMYZ, took off and is doing great things in term of music. Their music focuses on an experimental, melodic, moombahton and jump-step sound. The duo has established that they are quite the jokers – their bio reads ‘Professional fake book writer and a leprechaun farmer who’s a gambler” and they always are having the best time preforming. Their remix of Oasis’ “Wonderwall” has a huge hit and the duo preformed at their first festival this year, Mysteryland. This up and coming duo is definitely making a big name for themselves in the EDM world.
