A great deal of the REC. Festival program at Annabel will be all about hip hop. Festival headliner is Joey Bada$$. An American, independent hip-hop Recording Artist, who hails from Brooklyn, New York. with his rugged style, an invigorating outcome of his Brooklyn neighborhood and surroundings, Joey Bada$$ has been a staple in the hip-hop industry for maintaining an authentic, unique and versatile sound. whereas other rappers may take less risks with formulaic projects, Joey never shies away from keeping his music raw and original.
Danny Brown is a unique Detroit rapper whose hood/hipster personality, embrace of social media, and prolific mixtape output fostered an underground phenomenon. An absolute must see!
Also an absolute must see: Shabazz Palaces at BAR. Ishmael Butler’s Shabazz Palaces project has always occupied another plane, his discordant sounds and bizarro abstract lyrics are just close enough to the familiar to spur intense cognitive dissonance.
Besides the above there is many many more to discover at REC. Come early, move from venue to venue and see all amazing artists the program has to offer.
