FLUXO: FUNK PROIBIDÃO WITH MC BIN LADEN, MC CAROL, DJ ASSAULT & MORE // RBMA NYCREAD MORE
In the favelas of Brazil, a unique street culture has emerged from the neon-lit car stereos lining the local block parties known as fluxos. The sound booming out of these improvised soundsystems is known most commonly as funk or proibidão, which translates to “strongly prohibited.” Proibidão shares certain sonic and lyrical characteristics with Miami bass, early electro and cumbia, and every weekend, thousands of youths gather at fluxos in Brazil’s major cities to socialize, dance and party. We’re excited to bring the music of this movement to NYC as part of Red Bull Music Academy New York – featuring Brazilian MCs and producers like MC Bin Laden, MC Carol, Leo Justi and Tom DJ as well as Detroit booty bass legend DJ Assault, whose brash aesthetics have been a major influence on the fluxos’ explicit funk sound. Joining them on the bill will be Chicago rap duo Sicko Mobb, Venus X and Asmara, whose music is informed by the chaotic and ebullient energy of fluxos in their own genres.
Full line-up: MC Bin Laden, MC Carol, DJ Assault, Sicko Mobb, Venus X & Asmara (Putaria Maxima), Leo Justi, Tom DJ

OMAR S, BRIAN KAGE, ELI ESCOBAR // GOOD ROOMREAD MORE
Omar S moves our bodies and souls in a special he only knows how. Each party he turns out at is as unique as the last, with sounds and rhythms that fill the room with power and a true sense of awareness on the dance floor. The underground hero is taking Detroit to the future and we’re lucky enough to bare witness to what that looks like.
Join us in May as we let our hair down for a night out at Good Room. NYC maverick Eli Escobar takes the wheel as he sets the mood for a night of unadulterated, unfiltered fun underneath the disco ball.

PANTHA DU PRINCE // MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURGREAD MORE
Pantha Du Prince’s take on minimalist production goes beyond simple soundscapes – he tackles full dimensions to create entire conceptual frameworks made entirely of the digital dust that surrounds us. The results – celebrations of human interaction and jamming in the age of disparate disconnect.
His first solo album in six years had us reveling last fall and we’ve been itching to work with the German artist since! The elegance and rhythms in his work cuts through the chaos of today’s world and reveals raw, visceral emotion. This May get ready for some pretty life changing modular synths and other vintage analogue gear as Pantha Du Prince goes all out on stage and overlays his vocals over ethereal, ambient sounds.
Tickets to this raw experience will sell out, so act now while you can…
