Josh Anaya and Angelo Patino-Patroni make up the duo called PeaceTreaty. Many have heard (and love) them and their songs, but not many know where or how this group came about, including myself. How did these guys come to fame so quickly? How did they achieve those hard-hitting electro beats? And their original productions? Massive! So since, Florida has been blessed with PeaceTreaty's presence this week (this past Saturday in Orlando, and this Friday in Tallahassee), let's dive into the what makes up this unbelievable team.
From the depths of Chino Hills, CA, Josh Anaya discovered the greatness of the electronic music world in 2009, immediately starting production and playing at warehouse parties. Seeking advice from a high school friend, Angelo Patino, the two automatically became a pair. Armed and dangerous with not only a handful, but a sack full of music (originals and remixes), PeaceTreaty has exploded on the scene, with recognition from, most notably Steve Aoki, who signed them to Dim Mak Records.
PeaceTreaty believes that one of the last places that peace and unity can be found is on the dance floor, thus the name. Their music is featured in professional DJ sets all over the world and they are officially apart of the electronic movement in the U.S. Most recently, they have remixed R3hab, Moby, Diplo and Oliver Twizt, have done an EP for Sebastian Ingrosso's Refune Label and are preparing for a full-length album to be released this summer under Dim Mak. With their hands full, PeaceTreaty has nowhere to go but forward. Headlining shows and festivals and going on their own tour is just the beginning. The music I've included here is only a taste of what Friday night will have to offer.
PeaceTreaty will be in Tallahassee, FL this Friday, February 24th at Lit Nightclub (formerly 20/20). Don't miss out on this awesome Friday night show! Get tickets now!
