Shortly after the demise of disco in the late 70’s and well before remixing became common practice in the music industry, there was Razormaid! Founded by Joseph Watt and Art Maharg, Razormaid is THE preeminent remix service of the 80’s and 90’s and beyond, providing a spectacular and comprehensive catalog of dance music that spans more than two decades and graces countless dance-floors around the world. This is the story of Razormaid as told by the music itself, curated by DJs who lived it the first time.

Located in the heart of downtown, just blocks from the state capital, Loft718 provides the comfort of your living room against the backdrop of a rapidly-growing city.
