This was most definitely one of my more memorable experiences from Coachella 2013. If you did not get to witness it live, be clear this set jogged my memory and helped me remember what it means to “get down”.
The Los Angeles-based electronic music Don known as Kraddy has always brought the undiluted sound of the underground to new audiences. From his work as a founding member of the infamous Glitch Mob to his solo work, Kraddy (born Matthew Kratz) has always been known for shattering genre conventions while moving crowds everywhere from Red Rocks, to Burning Man, to Coachella, and even L.A.’s famed Low End Theory club.
From his breakthrough 2008 hit “Android Porn” to the innovative bangers comprising his latest e.p. Labyrinth (Alpha Pup), Kraddy continues to hybridize hip-hop, dubstep and dancehall with face-melting panache and rock and roll bravado. But the man himself was as surprised as anyone when the mainstream crossed over to him. Be sure to keep Kraddy on your radar for the fact that his new album BE A LIGHT will be available for iTunes pre-sale on 5/20/14 and for full release 6/2/14.
Hailing his own self-made genre, HEAVY DIRTY NASTY, I hope you enjoy this set as well as the artist in all his ingenious creations! Happy listening my friends!
