dublab — BAE BAE – Hood Rave Mix
The mix is the kind of set you will hear at Hood Rave, the underground party BAE BAE curates in LA. The hyperbolic black femme, she translates her empathy to the decks, blending r&b, house, club, jungle, garage, dancehall and more, foregrounding black music genres and sensuality.
BAE BAE takes us into a labyrinth of sound, a hazardous journey filled with techno, afro riddims, vocal ballads and ambient samples. The mix is the kind of set you will hear at Hood Rave, the underground party she curates in LA.
The hyperbolic black femme, BAE BAE translates her empathy to the decks. She blends r&b, house, club, jungle, garage, dancehall and more, foregrounding black music genres and sensuality. She throws a monthly black and queer centered party in LA called Hood Rave.
This program is part of New Music USA’s web magazine NewMusicBox “Guest Editor series”, which aims to celebrate a plurality of voices from across the nation and will feature exclusive content written, produced, or commissioned by a rotating artist or organization. The series kicks off with dublab. NewMusicBox, edited by Frank J. Oteri, amplifies creators and organizations who are building a vibrant future for new music in all its forms, and has provided a vital platform for creators to speak about issues relevant to them in their own words since 1999.
The dublab partnership will feature new weekly content from at least 15 different voices through January 2023, presented in conversations, DJ mixes, articles, and live performances all exploring the current landscape of music composition.
The Guest Editor is the first such series in the magazine’s 23-year history and reflects New Music USA’s aim to deepen its impact across the many diverse music communities across the United States. This aim is also demonstrated by NewMusicBox’s ongoing “Different Cities, Different Voices” feature that spotlights music creation hubs across the nation.
