As long time fans of Diplo and Mad Decent, we quickly gravitated towards Heroes x Villains. This dynamic duo is comprised of Daniel Disaster (DJ Megan Foxxx) and Pete H from ATL. Heroes x Villains has steadfastly put themselves on the map with their vigorous combination of dubstep, house, and electro, laced with dirty south hip-hop. They are also influenced by chopped and screwed, the technique of slowing down hip-hop tracks and then mixing them up with scratching and beat juggling. Probably one of the greatest Mad Decent mixes to date, is the Heroes+Villains / We Off That Mixtape. This epic mix features some elite dirty south hip-hop artists, such as Waka Flocka, Roscoe Dash and the one and only, Gucci Mane.


The true identity of Heroes+Villains, the production entity responsible for creating the go-to tracks for the world’s biggest DJs and the buzz of influential music blogs, has been one of the music industry’s biggest mysteries. Finally, the answer has come, revealing infamous Atlanta bred producers, DJs, and anarchists Daniel Disaster and Pete H as the men behind the moniker. They are taking the blame and pleading guilty to all charges related to the subversive dirty south bass project accountable for a decade of premeditated blood, sweat, and bass. Daniel Disaster may be best known for his work with superstars such as Justin Timberlake, Lil Wayne, T.I., Young Jeezy, Young Dro, and Yung LA. Spending his days as one of Grand Hustle Records in-house hit-makers, he has been the invisible hand facilitating the “Swag” Hip-Hop movement’s infiltration of commercial music the world over.

Here are a few clips of Heroes+Villains doing their thing at some small, but energy-packed, venues.
