DJ ILLOGIC (CADENCE / INK HOUSE / DC)
Sean Lowder, aka DJ Illogic has made a name for himself on the DC dance music scene as co -founder of the popular D&B monthly Cadence & as one half of the house music tag team duo – INK House. Sean’s taste in music has always been very diverse spinning everything from hip hop, soul, house & down-tempo, although he is probably best known for his jazzy, liquid style of Drum & Bass.

He also partnered with long-time friends at Turnstyle to help throw RVA’s first EDM Festival – Evolve in 2003.
