Red Bull Music Academy Presents: UNOversal Dancehall
NYC’s ever-eclectic record label transmits the full “post-Internet” experience, bringing their roster of visionary talent to Chinatown. GHE20G0TH1K’s self-declared love champion Ian Isiah and Canadian producer Kuhrye-oo (you might have seen him hit the MPC at Grimes’ live shows) play alongside the electronic maximalism of Gobby and the blunted 303s of SFV Acid. Augmented reality at its finest. Room 2 will see performances by Red Bull Music Academy participants from five countries, including London-based soul nomad fLako aka Dirg Gerner, Caribou drummer Pick A Piper, Santiago’s colorful synthesist Lavina Yelb, Lagos R&B-boy Kraftmatiks, and New York’s own ShadowBox.
