When: Fri., April 29, 9 p.m. 2016
Now that Prince is gone, who will rise to the title of the coolest person on Earth? A dark horse is Ishmael Butler, of the thoroughly woke duo Shabazz Palaces. In the ’90s, Butler was responsible for some of the smoothest bars of the jazz-rap generation as a member of Digable Planets. After a few years out of the industry, he returned as the soothsaying mouthpiece for SP and moonlights as an A&R man for Sub Pop. Given his professionally dope palate, this DJ set at The Mix’s grand reopening should be a grad program for the music you should be tuned into right now. Also on the bill: Maneaters of Tsavo and Blaak Heat.
