We were ready to watch a throwdown: a hypothetical match between Luciano at LIV Miami and Damian Lazarus at Electric Pickle. But Lazarus wins by default, ‘cause well, Luciano didn’t even show face. Lazarus and Luciano were both set to play last Friday in Miami, but due to “unforeseen personal reasons beyond his control”, Luciano had to cancel his gig at LIV.
In any case, we put the two label bosses back to back, and judging by all the info we’ve compiled, they’re neck and neck. Check out the info, sets and the video from Lazarus’ show below, and you tell us who you think would win in a battle of the bosses.
