When: Fri., March 18, 10 p.m. 2016
After throwing an epic birthday bash at the newly reopened Uptown Nightclub, featuring performances by up-and-coming Bay Area rappers Kamaiyah, Kool John, Jay Ant, and Larry June, Oakland DJ Daghe Digital is back at it with his next event, Turnt. The party’s theme is “06 Hyphy” (2006 was the year E-40’s seminal hyphy joints “Tell Me When to Go,” “Muscle Cars,” and “U & Dat” came out). And now that the kids who were in high school during the hyphy movement’s peak are in their twenties, nostalgia for Bay Area music from the mid-Aughts is at an all-time high. Nic Nac, an Oakland-bred producer who has worked with superstar vocalists such as Chris Brown, and Sake-One, the DJ behind the popular Thursday night party at Somar, Ultrawave, will be joining Daghe behind the decks. Rapper and FreeSpirit ambassador Beejus — who just dropped his conscious slap project BeeSmoove2 — will perform, as well.
