Ben Berger, Ryan McMahon and Ryan Rabin write and produce for the likes of Hasley, Walk The Moon and Tegan & Sara by day but by night Captain Cuts DJ at Taking Back Tuesday, a LA Emo Night that’s popular with Mark Hoppus and All Time Low.
Speaking to Rolling Stone Ben explains, “”People who were teenagers at the time that this music took off are hitting a place where the nostalgia factor is really high. We were having so much fun making these and we felt that we would be bummed not letting everybody else have them and have the same nostalgia feeling we have.”
