PeaceTreaty's Name Was Coined as a Joke By an Ex-Girlfriend -- But It Suits Them Perfectly

Sure, Ryan Jaso may always wear black, but he has been managing electronic music artists for over four years now. He knows not only what kinds of threads his DJs look best in, but also what styles the fans who come to their shows love most.

He took his rock-star sense of style and opened a store to let you get in on the look. If you want an evening filled with fashion, art and music then we suggest checking out the one-year anniversary of Lobby and official launch of at the Lab in Costa Mesa tomorrow from 6-10 p.m. The official after party will be at Ten Nightclub in Newport Beach with electro house duo PeaceTreaty. We met up with PeaceTreaty and their cute pug Ziggy at the Lab to shop and talk dance music.

PeaceTreaty started off as a single DJ, Josh Anaya from Chino Hills, who put out a couple tracks and created a lot of buzz in the EDM scene in 2010. Josh went to his high school friend Angelo Patino-Patroni for music advice later that year, and the two teamed up.

"I've been doing music my whole life. I went to school for it and started teaching it," says Patino-Patroni. "I've always liked electronic music, but never expected this to take off like it has." Though the name PeaceTreaty was coined by Josh's ex, they still yearn to bring people together through music. "We decided to stick with the name because it fits everything that we are about," explains Patino-Patroni.

It may have started out as a joke, but the name PeaceTreaty and what they stand for has turned into something much bigger in just a couple of years. "People come together at shows. They are from different backgrounds and different countries. [Differences and genres] get thrown out the window at these type of events," says Patino-Patroni. (Anaya is busy saying hello to a girl who walks by with a Skrillex style haircut).

Insomniac Event's "Beyond Wonderland" was one of the first times they got to experience this type of unity. They opened on the main stage for Kaskade, Dirty South and Adrian Lux. Playing in front of 10,000 fans gave them a taste of what it's like to play Coachella and EDC like festivals and they feel ready for more.
