For Thursday’s highly anticipated Groundislava & Supreme Cuts show at Shine Nightclub, we’re giving away a VIP package!
Emerging from the endless summers of Venice, CA to teaming up with Shlohmo, Jonwayne, D33J, RL Grime and more to form the Wedidit crew, Jasper Patterson aka Groundislava has transformed from bashful video gamer to full-fledged composer. The son of Michael Patterson (who directed A-Ha’s standout music video “Take On Me” and Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract”), Groundislava has roots that draw from 80s nostalgia, TV and pop culture that grow and transform into the 21st Century aesthetic of electronic music.
If you follow hip-hop, you’ve probably encountered what’s known as “cloud rap,” the dissolute and druggy music made by producers like Clams Casino, and preferred by MCs such as Lil B and Main Attrakionz. Above all, it’s brought on a slew of hip-hop that’s slow and soporific, connecting the dots between a number of musical universes (Clams Casino and Main Attrakionz have both released on the experimental electronic Type label), and a trend perhaps no better manifested in the underground electronic world right now than in Supreme Cuts.
