This Friday at CONTROL, the Mad Decent crew is taking over with Walshy Fire (Major Lazer), JSTJR, Paul Devro, Henrik the Artist, and Akira Akira. Be ready for an epic party with moombahton, trap, and reggae, and bass
Leighton Walsh is one third of the supergroup, Major Lazer. Although he’s generally found on the mic during Major Lazer’s performances, he’s guaranteed to keep the vibe intense throughout his set at CONTROL. Following the release of his label in 2015, Walshy Fire Presents, expect sounds that mimic the Jamaican sound system that blends hip hop or R&B rhythms with reggae and vocal tracks.
JSTJR pronounced like “gesture”, combines his love for regional sounds from around the world with his passion for hip hop and experimental electronic production to put together an unique mix. He’s released sounds on Mad Decent, Fool’s Gold, and SMOG with his latest “Never Squad Down” EP release last month. In 2015, he was credited for working with Major Lazer on their last album, Peace is the Mission.
Paul Devro is Mad Decent’s head A&R and creative director that will get the crowd pumping early in the night. Diplo and Paul Devro came together to start the annual A Very Decent Christmas compilation that puts a unique twist on Christmas music. Hence based off his NEST HQ MiniMix, expect a unique and hybrid mix of trap, bass, and hip hop.
Henrik the Artist, is one fourth of Norwegian club music boy band, Rytmeklubben. He brings a distinctive sound that incorporates his Norwegian influences with commercial pop and music from the 90s-00s with a hint of bass. He was chosen as part of NEST HQ’s “Best of 2016: Remixes” for Shawn Wasabi & YDG feat. Yung Gemmy – Burnt Rice.
Akira Akira is Mad Decent’s up and coming artist that was just featured with a guest mix in the March edition of Diplo and Friends. He’ll be opening the night with some taste of moombahton and bass sounds.
Catch Walshy Fire, alongside JSTJR, Paul Devro, Henrik the Artist, and Akira Akira this Friday at CONTROL in Hollywood. Get ready for a proper Mad Decent party with unique, genre-breaking sets.
