HELLO MYKKI, MEET IT’S EVERYONE ELSE AND N’TOKO

He needs no special introduction. In the span of his short career Mykki Blanco has bended every hip hop stereotype in existence, challenging the genre not only musically, but ideologically as well. His “Join My Militiawas a nasty piece of mud thrown into the face of the hip hop community, and since then his music has only gotten more relentless (check out The Initiation if you want to hear rapping in Latin over a brain-sizzling synth loop). There’s a lot of 80s no-wave New York in his art and performances, especially on “Mykki Blanco and the Mutant Angels”, but at the same time, there’s a club banger hiding in each song. Anyway, you get it, I’m a fan.

When we got news of him touring the area, we jumped at the opportunity to have him on our Safari event. The way the dates worked out was perfect as he will be coming to Ljubljana on the same day It’s Everyone Else and I return from our Europe tour. I’m sure that everyone hears Mykki’s music in their own way, but to me he represents something very similar to what IEE and I stand for: refusing to be just entertainers, challenging the audience and forcing scenes out of their comfort zone. So booking It’s Everyone Else for the event makes perfect sense to me. We’ve been playing shows together for a week now and have started joining parts of our performances into an industrial-hiphop wasteland I’ve always dreamed of creating. The Kino Šiška gig will be the first time that I jump on stage with them.

See you there!

Po lanskoletnem nastopu Le1fa, v Šiško prihaja še njegov bolj razvpiti njujorški kolega Michael Quattlebaum alias MYKKI BLANCO s svojim eksperimentalno odbitim in s transvestitsko estetiko ter z riot grrrls tematiko začinjenim hip hopom.

V podporo Mykkiju bo nastopila domača naveza dua It’s Everyone Else in N’Toka, ki bo s tem nastopom sklenila skupno turnejo po Evropi.

Mykki Blanco je umetniško ime ameriškega pesnika in performerja Michaela Davida Quattlebauma Jr. Quattlebaum je interdisciplinarni umetnik, ki za izražanje svojih splošnih idej kot performativni medij uporablja sodobni hip hop. Odraščal je ob selitvah med San Mateom v Kaliforniji in Raleighom v Severni Karolini, vendar je pri šestnajstih letih pobegnil v New York. Tam ni ostal dolgo in se kmalu spet namenil v Kalifornijo, študij pa ga je pritegnil na Art Institute of Chicago. Ko je študij opustil, se je spet preselil v New York in leta 2010 objavil svojo prvo pesniško zbirko From the Silence of Duchamp to the Noise of Boys. Quattlebaum kot svoje vplive navaja umetnike in pisatelje, kot so Marcel Duchamp, Anaïs Nin, Bob Kaufman in Jean Cocteau. Leta 2011 je začel nastopati z dvema novima projektoma – pod imenom No Fear izvaja silovit industrial rock, kot Mykki Blanco pa glamurozen getovski rap v slogu underground feminističnega gibanja riot grrrl. Mykki se je veličastno pojavila leta 2012 z EP-jem Mykki Blanco and the Mutant Angels, ki mu je lani sledil še EP Betty Rubble: The InitiationNew York Times ga je v profilu označil z besedami “od najstniškega ubežnika do hip hop transvestita”.
