The Raiders—Mikey Francis and keyboardist Beans (Vincent Campillo), both 26-year-old Green Valley High grads—recently welcomed a new edition to their electro-pop outfit, drummer Drew Marcogliese from L.A.

The Raiders’ lone release, the Future Thinkers EP—featuring two dynamite original cuts and other artists’ remixes of both songs—was pressed on the former duo’s own imprint, Badical Beats.
