Then, we had not one, but three DJs knock out live mini sets for the second hour of the show. Hour two began with the hardest working man in the house game.

Not only is Jonn Hawley a dedicated full-time poppa, but he also manages to write and produce music, run his label Soul Fuel, travel for gigs and still delivers flawless sets.

Then, we had the duo of Andrew Optimist and The Milkman on the show. Combined they are called Elechronic. It was their first time on the show and they have an upcoming event at the Mad Planet called House Your Body. It was fitting to have them share their energy with us. Enjoy!
