“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.”
