Mystic Beat Lounge brings you an unprecedented musical experience on Friday night in the Grace Pavilion with a reggae and hip-hop extravaganza featuring:
Grammy Award winners Steel Pulse, one of the world's legendary roots reggae bands. No other reggae performers command the stage quite like the "Dread" himself, David Hinds, lead vocalist and Rhythm Guitar and Selwyn Brown, vocals and keyboards. They are the genuine article, consistently delivering a stellar performance time after time.
Jazz Mafia Presents "Brass, Bows & Beats" Hip-Hop Symphony featuring Lyrics Born & Chali 2na with a 40-piece orchestra; bringing you a seamless fusion of jazz, funk, hip-hop, electronica, and digital turntable that deserves to be heard worldwide (now!). The Jazz Mafia Premier SOLD OUT all eight shows! They are "visionary in scope, staggering in depth."
Rounding out this extraordinary night of music are Zion I; blending hip-hop and trip-hop beats, Wisdom; whose diverse style incorporates lyrics that are streetwise with a political edge along with DJ Skwint, and DJ Guacamole; WBLK Dancehall Massive.
Merging people and musical movements Mystic Beat Lounge ramps up its game with a massive Friday night throw down in Harmony Hall that marks the inception of the next big wave of sound from the underground dance scene, Dubstep and Glitch. Laying down some formidable seismic trills of bass rolls will be the Wobble Factory sound system backed by a front line of subwoofers delivering a salvo of sound unleashed by the creative forces of four up-and-coming producers whose muse is rewiring and redefining the underground: Ana Sia; uniting the best elements of dirty dubstep, grimy glitch, and her personalized blend of "global slut psy-hop," Mimosa; who takes the listener on a space age psychedelic journey of bittersweet ecstasy , Ill Gates; an emerging moniker, and Marty Party; whose live performance is an intense journey and true “crunky” and "hyphy" experience like no other. Opening support comes from two of Sonoma counties hardest working local beatsmiths Dr. Dylan and iNi, with production support by Double D and Groove Garden forces.
