Electric Onsen Livestreams
It goes without saying that with the pandemic still active, our normal evening dances can’t occur. However, we’re not going to completely exclude some phat beats and smooth grooves from a year of AnimeSTL! We’re blessed to have some of our local DJs producing livestreamed performances for you to enjoy virtually on Friday and Saturday evening. Check out the line-up below and be sure to join them virtually on Friday and Saturday from 5:30-9:30 pm!
Patrick “Packie” Harting
The goth soft boy makes his return to ASTL! No genre will be left out, including House, Trap, Dubstep, Drum and Bass, and even Hardcore. This also wouldn’t be a Packie set if there wasn’t a slew of mash-ups of your favorite music, video game and anime tracks, and even some dead memes! Whatever this goofball will be play next is anyone’s guess, but the crowd will be moving to it regardless.
Patrick Harting has made his name known throughout the region with his high energy nerd music that’s been rocking crowds for half a decade now. He’s opened and closed out for artists such as Darude, Crystal Method, Feed Me, and other regional acts like Everywhere from raves in roller rinks and abandoned churches, to packed clubs all over the downtown area, Packie has probably played the weirdest spots the city can offer for crowds of all sizes. Now after years of learning the scene, he’s started to throw his own shows with the new production company, Mystery Box. Together with the Mystery Box team, they strive to keep the rave alive with their parties at Europe Night Club, The Crack Fox, and even Blue Ocean, all for those who still crave the electronic night life.
Doug “MeloD” Meloche
DJ Doug “MeloD” is back in action, taking you Beyond PLUS ULTRA!!
After rocking ASTL 2019 with totally retro techno tunes, it’s such a thrill breaking out the re-turn-tables (and shameless puns) once again. Although there have been fewer live events over the past year, this multi-talented MC has hardly slowed down or gotten rusty.
This DJ stays busy: sharpening his skills, promoting local artists, and growing his online business “MeloD Studio”. The latest leap forward in MeloD’s professional life is putting his Fine Arts background to good use through a career with the Saint Louis Arts Museum. It has been nearly a decade-long journey in the making, but worth every step. The only limitations on your dreams are those we place on ourselves. So, always “Play From The Heart”

Over the course of many years, he’s developed a unique blend of sounds, combining the soulful elements of classic early era dance music, with more modernized, energetic productions, creating a great balance between nostalgia and the modern era.
