We are proud to present the 2013 AN-JCCC Halloween Dance DJs

Monday, 23 September 2013 12:21

Followers of the Anime-hardcore sound, and keepers of the Kawaii Bass, Djs Tenshin (pictured to the right) and Velociraver (pictured to the left) have been rocking dancefloors solidly since their debut at Anime North two years ago. Their high-speed, high-energy fusion of cute anime and melodic rave music always gets feet moving and hearts lifted! These two titans will be mixing it up, back to back, for 5 whole hours of whacky madness!

To make the dance even more enjoyable, please post a list of your song requests before October 10, 2013 in the Facebook thread regarding the DJ announcment to ensure that DJ Tenshin has your songs on hand during the dance.

If you haven't attended DJ Tenshin's sets in the Anime North dances in the last couple of years, click here for a taste.
