DJ Munition on How "Gangnam Style" Will Drive Afterlife Wild Tonight

Tyler Sherman has been privy to more than a few major ragers, despite the embryonic nature of his DJ career. As his alter ego DJ Munition, the ASU student, who's currently pursing a bachelors degree in chemical engineering, has only been in the track-dropping biz for a mere four years, but has reigned over some crazy 18-and-over crowds during off-the-hook house parties, at the Marquee Theatre while opening for Porter Robinson, and even on a houseboat teeming with frat boys and drunken lasses.

Later tonight, he'll use his mixing mojo to instigate some insanity as one of the headlining DJs at Afterlife's Gangnam Style Party, which is inspired by K-pop star PSY's equally insane worldwide club banger hit of the same name. During our recent conversation with Sherman, the 21-year-old described how he plans use the song to drive the crowd wild at the club during the affair, as well as discussing his love of trance music and how performing topless girls wasn't as cool as being an opener for Robinson.
