Devonté (Dev) Hynes is a producer, songwriter, and artist currently based in New York City. He has written and produced songs for a wide range of artists including Solange Knowles, the Chemical Brothers, Florence and the Machine and Sky Ferriera. Dev also writes music under the moniker of BLOOD ORANGE, and has released two albums, Coastal Grooves and Cupid Deluxe, on Domino Recording Co. Also from The Big Apple, rising rap trio RATKING have generated attention by trying to represent something different while chaneling a "classic" New York sound. The trio burst onto the scene a few years ago and quickly became known for their "rabble rousing gusto" and wild live shows. Teenage MCs WIKI and HAK (from the Upper West Side and Harlem, respectively) and Harlem-based producer SPORTING LIFE "aim to revitalize the reckless spirit of classic New York rap," says Pitchfork. BRANDON BOOM of THE-DRUM will be DJing before, in between and after the bands tonight, so show up early and stay late, cause the party don't stop until we're legally forced to close to the public.
