The kids are alright. Founded by Great Dane (2017)
with Special Guest Ras G
Ras G guides a deep space exploration of music's ancient history and rich future. Working thru obsolete tools to reach back in time and pluck out the essence of groove, Ras G's music is rich with space-funktified rhythms, fog horns, natty chattin, subterranean bass lines, colossal percussion and glorious highs.
Ras G has been a fixture on the underground hiphop scene in Los Angeles since the early 90s. He is a proud South Central LA resident. Ras along with Black Monk and Ron Stivers are the founders of the Poo-Bah Label.
This is the music that people will be playing in the ghettos of Mars in the year 3014.
Dane Morris is Great Dane, an LA transplant from Orange County with a taste for independent hip-hop and an ear for sticky beats. A Low End Theory staple with 3 full-length records under his belt, he is co-founder of the music collective TeamSupreme.
Dane has been touring basically non-stop since his debut album (Alpha Dog) in 2013, and is excited to finally establish this residency in LA as his home bass. His latest solo venture is ADBC:
While tutoring at some of the most acclaimed music production schools in LA, Dane realized how much raw talent was brewing out there - he felt like he had stumbled upon some of the hottest unknown music producers on the planet and wanted to build a platform to shine a spotlight on them. This label imprint is digitally distributed by Alpha Pup Records - Daddy Kev’s brainchild and the home of all Dane’s previous records - and with one compilation album released, this new club night, and the next Great Dane solo project slated for July 2018, ADBC is off to the races!
Originally hailing from the San Fransisco Bay Area, Hapa migrated south in 2014 and has since become an impactful character in the LA beat scene. Aside from his dark, other-worldly beats, he is also co founder of the up and coming record label Courteous Family. Over the years he has devoted himself to the forward progression of music. Drawing inspiration from close friends like Tsuruda, Woolymammoth, Aztek, and Herzeloyde, (to name a few) Hapa has had a hand in many unforgettable collaborative projects as well as accrued a deep repertoire of his own. Everything he touches radiates unmistakeable style. A true tastemaker down to the core, Hapa’s DJ sets are something you won’t want to miss.
