Red Bull Sound Select: Chicago 9/16. Ja Rule, The Outfit, Ty Money [New Event / Music]

Ja Rule

We’re in for a throwback treat at this month’s Red Bull Sound Select! Curated by Fake Shore Drive, and with performances by Ja Rule (NYC), The Outfit (Dallas), & Ty Money (Chicago), the show is bound to trigger fond memories of the early 00’s.

With three years since his last album, Ja Rule is emerging from the underground to remind everyone of his ability to “Mesmerize”. Most of our readers may remember him from his late-90’s/early-00’s DEF Jam catalog or his many Hip-Hop and R&B duets. Dallas-based The Outfit released their latest album, Deep Ellum (EP), only a month ago which you can peep here. Rounding out the lineup is local Harvey, Illinois MC; Ty Money who is riding on the heels of his recent mixtape, Cinco De Money.

Refresh your mind of what Rule is capable of with the video below. & If you’re in the Chicagoland area on September 16th, be sure to RSVP here for discount entry now!

An uplifting dose of Humpday magic dust right here! Turn off your spam filters and dive into this 80s Boogie / SOS Band-fueled remix of The Weeknd‘s “I Can’t Feel My Face” the old fashioned way, by email. Since Soundcloud is shutting down artists left and right under their new structure, dj100proof decided to jump ship and spread his good word through his newsletter instead. Mixcloud, Bandcamp, & remain the few safe havens for a digital musician, but if Soundcloud is any indication of things to come,  your inbox just might become the best place to hear new music… So why not join dj100proof’s newsletter now?

Breakdance Meets Bach – Red Bull Flying Bach Hits Chicago [New Event]

Flying Bach_2015_1

With striking moves and breathtaking tricks, Red Bull Flying Bach is dropping into Chicago. Challenging the boundaries between cultures, Flying Bach is a visual spectacle that takes the intricate form of breakdance crew Flying Steps and combines it with the Classical stylings of composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Originating from Berlin, The Flying Steps have specialized in b-boying, popping and locking since their founding in 1993, having won several awards over the years from their exceptional talent in the art of dance. Respected as one of the most successful urban dance crews worldwide, Red Bull has coupled them with the well-known works of Bach for a creative and explosive performance for the eyes and ears.

Hosted by Red Bull, the performance is coming to The Chicago Theater for the weekend of September 25th. You can get your set of tickets here.
