Every DJ in EDM culture has a compilation of songs tucked into their back pocket, and with Southern California based DJ-Duo MADE the possibilities are endless. Welcome to MADE's monthly Secret Weapons list, where 120 meets 150 and genre barriers are nowhere to be found. Brian LaPierre and Cody Cox are the production masterminds behind this multi-genre, open alias, "no rules" duo, and with musical backgrounds ranging from Death Metal to Country, Hip-Hop to Pop and Rock to R&B - their uncanny & effortless ability to filter, mix and produce unique sets doesn't surprise us.
Although a duo, their individual endeavors remain a large part of their DJ identities. Find them as a pair, and you'll be escorted on a journey through the world of melodic, uplifting trance, psy/goa trance, and hard trance flavors. But catch them apart and you'll fall into a labyrinth of Dubstep, Hardstyle, Trap, UK Hardcore, and Orchestral strings.
From the artist...
"Since the concept of trance is so wildly evolved nowadays, and the fact that we usually rage from 128-150+ BPM, we are presented with a never-ending variety of talented artists and tracks to choose from. We always like to play tracks we know the crowd most likely hasn't heard of yet, each with many different feels. Tracks to make them dance, love, cry, unite and straight up lose their mind to! We always have to drop an old school track in each set though, and if the crowd shows they're wild enough, we end it with hardstyle!"
- Brian, MADE
"Its all about spreading the love and culture that dance music offers. I'll never forget how life changing it was to see Armin perform at my first event... The love and energy I felt was unbelievable! It was electric, truly ecstasy! I see it as my mission to share that same love and experience I felt with as many people that I can. We're changing lives one beat at a time."
