Spank Rock draws immediate influence from the Baltimore Bass movement. He met with the Diplo-helmed Hollertronix crew and began crafting the type of live performances that have become underground legend in the early 2000s. With production partner Alex “XXXChange” Epton, he released the seminal LP YoYoYoYoYo on UK label Big Dada in 2006, the album that many credit as the progenitor of the electro/rap/booty phenomenon. Since then Spank Rock has toured with everyone from Beck to Bjork to the Beastie Boys, made records with Santigold, KylieMinogue, Mark Ronson and Mos Def, and remains one of the most enigmatic and electrifying performers in music today.
Come see him at our show on Dec. 17th 2013 at Music Hall of Williamsburg alongside DJ Sliink, Body Language, Cakes Da Killa and Pegasus Warning. Beats by MikeQ, Larry B, Uniique, and Mursi Layne. Doors are at 6.30PM. $3 before 10pm w/ RSVP | CLICK HERE TO RSVP | $10 w/o.
