Atlanta based and internationally known, Le Castle Vania, commonly known as Dylan Eiland, widely regarded as one of the originators of the current electro sound. Atlantas burgeoning music scene allowed him to develop his passion for music and nightlife, and he soon gained notoriety with his riotous DJ sets and penchant for production, which made him a household name in the city and distorted, indie-electro scene.
Since the summer of 2006, Le Castle Vania has toured nonstop, taking his catchy electro dance beats on the road. He blurs the lines between cultures and cliques, from Mexico City to London Town, with his own signatory sound. He has DJed along side some of todays hottest acts, such as Justice, MSTRKRFT, Uffie & Feadz, Busy P, Sebastian, Kavinsky, Mehdi, Soulwax, The Presets and Crystal Castles. However, Dylan prides himself on more than pushing vinyl for the masses. He’s locked in the studio writing tracks from scratch and remixing his favorite bands. The attention he received from his remixed of Black Eyes by Indie Darlings Snowden (Jade Tree Records), quickly put Dylan on the map, the track continues to rock dance floors worldwide.
His signature sound blends grinding disco punk with strong electronic beats and catchy synth leads, resulting in banging electro music that is dark and dirty but somehow equally uplifting and dancey. New mixes to check out include Tigertron EP and remixes of Come Out for 120 days (Vice Records) and Bombs for Scanners (Dim Mak Records), which have all received critical appraisal from the indie electro world.
In 2007, Le Castle Vania joined forces with So Sweet Records and hasn't looked back. Now a headline artist, having played prime slot at both Electric Daisy Carnival + Nocturnal Festival along with a sold out show at the Glasshouse in Riverside, Le Castle Vania is touring Asia, Australia and playing the European festival market.
URB Magazine included Le Castle Vania in their Next 100 for 2008, NYLON and Jane Magazine absolutely demand he play at their events. Fader, Flavorpill and BigStereo have all raved about his remixes. New Years Day 2009 saw Le Castle Vania number one on Hype Machine with his remix of Rave Is King, obviously a omen of things to come.
