Ra Ra Riot
This indie-rock band has not only created a place for themselves the realm of independent music, but paved the way remixers to also make their mark. Ra Ra Riot first began their musical endeavor on the campus of Syracuse University, where they quickly rose to international fame. A year after they embarked on their musical journey, they toured with Tokyo Police Club, Art Brut, and the Editors. Though by an unfortunate incident, they lost their drummer along the way, they have continued to make a place for themselves, even touching base in the electronic remix realm.
