Smart Bomb V. 24

A showcase of forward-thinking hip-hop instrumentals.


Beat nerds unite at Smart Bomb, a hip-hop instrumentals showcase at The Legionnaire this Saturday. This edition of the recurring event features producer DEVONWHO from the influential label Stones Throw Records (the home of underground hip-hop purveyors Madlib and Peanut Butter Wolf). DEVONWHO recently dropped the dreamy, synth-driven EP Lyon, and it sounds like a soundtrack to an otherworldly techno utopia. Chris Keys, who has produced for experimental soul songstress Georgia Anne Muldrow (whom local music fans recently saw at the art and music festival Feels V), is also on the lineup, along with Sela, another avant-garde producer from Vallejo who’s known as the Bay Area’s foremost expert on Chicago footwork.
