shewantsrevengewebsite_72dpi.jpgFans of the dark synth-pop and brooding beats crafted by Los Angeles duo She Wants Revenge have Easy E to thank. The place: An L.A. backyard of a mutual friend. Adam 12 was asked to DJ the party; it was one of his first gigs with his own turntables. And he pulled out the Easy E.

“Justin [Warfield] came up to ask what I was playing,” explained Adam. But the duo wasn’t solidified yet. “We bounced ideas off each other through the years, but were always involved in other projects.” It took a second barbeque and a friend’s urging for the two to finally try creating music together.

“He came over to my house and I played him some songs that I had,” explained Justin. “And then a year later, I actually wasn’t involved in a project.” Within five months, they had the first She Wants Revenge songs.

Though their rapid rise to popularity seems almost predestined, initially the two had set their sights much lower. “We just wanted to play our beats in the clubs where we DJ’d,” said Adam. The two envisioned touring up and down the California coast, playing DJ gigs, mixing in their own beats and occasionally their own songs.
