So me and one of my co-writers embarked on a pretty epic adventure…and we got
We started the day out interviewing Locke Kaushal. This rapper went on early in the day and we caught up with him after to ask some questions about his upbringing into the game. We found out a lot of cool things about him and his pretty poetic upbringing! Check out the interview and if you want to hear more of his music, check out his facebook and soundcloud.
We had to see Flatbush Zombies before embarking towards the Red Bull Stage for a portion of the day.
Dudes brought so much energy, even though they had an early set. I throughly enjoyed myself but we had to rush off to meet up with DJ ROK aka Kid Cannibal. This dude is gearing up for something special as we found out. He spins a lot of rap music, trap and anything really base heavy and ratchet.
After that, We headed to the Red Bull Stage too see a rack of performers. First up was Nouveau Riche. For those of you that don’t know, Nouveau Riche is made up of Gavin Holland, Steve Starks and Nacey. They run a monthly party out of U – Street Music Hall that’s been going five years strong. They had a 30 minute slot time following a really really good performance from Rex Riot and Basscamp. Despite the set time being pushed back, it was a lot of fun. All three of them dropped original tunes and had most of the crowd dancing.
Next up we met up with CAM JUS. A producer DJ, He’s has had a lot of major moombahton releases on a lot of major labels, Most notably ROT10.
Next up we got the privilege of observing moombahsoul/moombahton pioneer, David Heartbreak. He came at it from the get go, dropping jams from his Incredible Hulk EP. What was even more incredible for me was he wasn’t using headphones for half the time and was using vinyl’s to spin. He dropped a lot of his own productions and had the crowd under his complete control. It was a pretty magnificent thing to experience. Here’s a couple of photos from the performance.
Next up, came Tittsworth. Tittsworth is the Co-owner of U-Street Music Hall, T & A label boss, Food Specialist and all around hard Electro Moombahton Maestro. He came with the heat dropping moombahton bangers and heavy electro drops…check this video we took.Also I added a couple photos so check that out.
Brenmar, the last act on the Red Bull Stage. Unlike everyone that came before him, he played tracks that were smooth. I dont think he touched the trap genre. He was straight up playing pure dance music in it’s finest form. The interview was really cool, found out some mad intresting things about him. So check out the interview below.
Last, we got to cover the headliners…Flosstradamus. The set itself was crazy, although it had to get shut down early 10:05 I think? anyway we got some great pictures of them playing their live set. Check it out. The live set was trap as hell, The crowd was a powder keg just waiting to go off!
Shouts out to DC to BC for making this all possible. This was a fantastic day and I discovered and met a ton of terrific artists. The whole Rap – EDM link is really strong, It was only a matter of time before something like this happened. I hope if you went you had just as much fun as I did!
