Over the weekend, the dance music Internets were ablaze with talk about some DJ Rules, primarily because they were super on-point. The list was to be put up in the DJ booth at AFTER, a new after-hours event going down in Las Vegas from 3:30AM to 8AM, and lays out what can be best described as the reverse of today’s EDM scene. Everything from not allowing trap, hip-hop, or dubstep to be played to various ways of saying “don’t play pre-mixed sets,” this is groundbreaking stuff in a city where DJs are paid top dollar to be EDM jukeboxes for crowds that don’t know what good dance music is to begin with. Come to find out, DAD homegirl Dani Deahl knows one of AFTER’s managing partners, a guy by the name of Thom Svast, so we figured we would have a chat with Thom to discuss his journey, these DJ Rules, and what Vegas dance music heads can expect from AFTER (which kicked off on February 1 and was a great success, we heard).
