Montreal-based electronic musician Kaytranada brought his funky, high-energy sound and made a dance party out of the Echoplex last night. At one point in the set he was joined by Syd tha Kid from Odd Future who together performed the track “Girl”. The song is part of a collaboration between Kaytranada and The Internet, whom Syd tha Kid is half of. Kaytranada has built a huge fan base by releasing a steady stream of remixes and mixtapes. His much-anticipated début album on XL Recordings is expected to be released sometime in 2016. Fellow Canadian artist and Red Bull Sound Select artist and MC Tre Mission kicked things off with his innovative blend of rap and grime. Sound Select artist RUMTUM followed with his breezy, electro-funk stylings. Early arrivers were gifted with specially made Kaytranada branded lighters.
Tonight’s show at Hollywood’s exclusive Sayers Club (1645 Wilcox Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028) will feature the genre-blending Atlanta artist Raury. Raury’s unique sound combines hip-hop, rock, and soul; just last month he released his debut album All We Need, and the New York Times praised him as someone who “sees the flaws of the world around him and raises his hand, volunteering to make the first change.” Proving his position as a provocateur, Raury made headlines when he performed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert wearing a t-shirt with fellow guest Donald Trump’s name crossed out. Opening will be Red Bull Sound Select artists OSHUN, a neo-soul duo out of New York that’s making waves with their visceral sound. 50 early arrivers will be gifted with 30 Days in LA t-shirts and can also get $10 off their Uber rides using the code RBSS023.
