The New Yorker on Summer Frenzy

By November 6, 2017February 18th, 2019No Comments

“The Brooklyn label Mixpak, which straddles the electronic and dancehall spheres, is partnering up with the Tryna Function collective to kick off the season, just a few days after the summer solstice. The all-day blowout starts outside, with sets from Spice, the Jamaican dancehall vocalist famous for “Romping Shop,” her duet with Vybz Kartel; Tink, a gifted rapper and R. & B. upstart; the Jamaican d.j. crew Equiknoxx; the Staten Island rapper Squidnice; and Mixpak’s own d.j.s Dre Skull and Jubilee. As the sun wanes, the bash moves indoors, to the Knockdown Center, where the club-music jockeys Tygapaw, DJ Bebe, and DJ Jayhood, as well as London’s Kamixlo, will play loud, fast bounce late into the evening.”
