HARD Haunted Mansion 2009 (Video)

A lineup of dance music’s elite DJ’s and producers gathered in Los Angeles over the weekend for the “HARD Haunted Mansion” event. Justice, Basement Jaxx, A-Trak, Major Lazer, 2manydjs and Deadmau5 just to name a few. LA dance music scene documentarians Glenjamn and Caesar Sebastian were there to document all of the action. So good to see Basement Jaxx behind the decks again.

Jaxx your body!
