Description

Before the dark rap aesthetic of Kid Cudi or experimental funk of Childish Gambino there was Ishmael 'Ish' Butler of Digable Planets--an alternative-rap trio famous for melding jazzy beats, funky, Afrofuturistic motifs and socially conscious lyrics in the early '90s. Since 2009, Ish has worked with multi-instrumentalist Tendai Maraire in Shabazz Palaces, a psychedelic hip-hop duo from Seattle. The two utilize a wide range of mesmerizing electronica and abstract lyrics to produce an avant-garde sound that is cosmic, dark and haunting. They perform with Jay Stone and Oakland’s Nina Sol as part of the Noise Pop festival.
