GRRL. Thien. Queen Plz.

You asked, we listened.

Illegal returns with a new spinoff pop-up party featuring drum-heavy music from the global diaspora in a dark, heavy (fake) rainforest(-like) laser-filled environment. Come experiment with us.

GRRL is the internets most avid overseer of alien riddims. His insatiable appetite and unabashed love for new music makes for a breath of fresh air in the current climate. His latest offering, Redlight/ Nightclub (, is a 2 track single of exquisitely mixed rhythmic tools, his most honest record to date and a leap in the direction of a very promising career.

Thien has been a behind-the-scenes powerhouse and dj in Raleigh for over a decade, involved in such infamous events as the Day Party at Babylon, the Last Call Hopscotch afterparties, the Full House series and Blacklisted at Five Star, Dirty Mega, Playa at Cortez, and a series of runs at Mosaic (RIP).

Queen Plz is a DJ, producer and party starter born and raised in Atlanta and currently based in Durham NC. Her continually evolving musical palette and her drive to create space for diversity in the electronic music underground led her to found seminal Durham monthly Party Illegal in 2013. She is fascinated by rhythmic complexity and the moments of accidental brilliance that arise from exploratory play. Queen Plz has been djing for almost a decade, and has opened for Jubilee, Le1f, Mykki Blanco, TT the Artist, Mighty Mark, Uniiqu3, and a host of other brilliant local artists.
