MONOLITHIUM (DJ set)
A comprehensive set featuring music connected to Detroit's hip-hop lineage, new & old.
TOKIN BLAQ (DJ set)
Although hip-hop's mainstream focus has always leaned hard on the coasts - from East to West and to the South - Detroit has always maintained a very strong, singular voice in the hip-hop landscape.
Detroit's urban music history formed rigid roots in the lineage of Motown, reached up through the meteoric rise of Eminem and is maintained through the wellspring of artists connected to the J Dilla/Slum Village continuum.
In 2013, as much of "hip-hop" borderlines on parodic, pop-leaning vapidity, the Motor City is responsible for some of the purest, rawest boom-bap around.
This night is dedicated to the Motor City sound and will feature music from across the spectrum of Detroit Hip-Hop: from Eminem to Slum Village to Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Phat Kat, Royce Da 5'9 and via J Dilla's vast library of solo releases & collaborations with other crews, this will be an evening for the head nods.
Doors 10pm $6
