Any dance music enthusiast needs no introduction to Jesse Houk. Under the moniker The Scumfrog, he's remixed some of the most ambitious and innovative dance records in years. Dido, Monica and Missy Elliot are just a few of the names that have been rerubbed by Houk.

Also a successful artist and producer, He's now joining forces with some of the biggest names in the dance music community to form DJs Are Alive, an UBER-group in the making.

Kristine W, DJ Skribble, Static Revenger, D:Fuse and Houk make up the band. Impressive, eh? Their first single, "Gimme Some Love" will soon dominate the dance charts. If you'll be at WMC, make it your mission to catch this collective live!

Jesse Houk recently took some time out of his schedule to chat with Midnight Lounge on how DJs are Alive came to be, where they're going from here and the pandemonium that always follows Kristine W. Special thanks goes to the Lounge's BFF, Evan, for helping out with Q&A...

How did DJs are Alive come to be?

I was doing a show in Texas a few months ago and something happened whereby all the DJs had to play a different stage and reduce their sets considerably. I was going to play around the same time as D:Fuse and Skribble so we said why don't we tag team? Why don't we just get up there with instruments and see what happens. So we did it and we really liked the results. That made me see that this might be a good time for me to try and put a band together.
