The multifaceted puissance of Teatro Franco Parenti will spread its wings by staging Mikael Seifu and Shabazz Palaces, two prestigious artists of, respectively, ethiopic folk mixed with uk garage and noisy hip-hop.
No one like Dj Premier has a unique and powerful style, made of scratchy loops that granted him a golden place in the Us hip-hop scene. Half of duo Gang Starr (the other half was rapper Guru), he used to work with some of the biggest name in business: The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Common, D.I.T.C., D’Angelo, Mos Def, Jadakiss and Snoop Dogg.
The first hip-hop crew signed to the Sub Pop label, Shabazz Palaces is the brainchild of Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler, although the Digable Planets member wasn’t so quick to admit it. In 2009, Shabazz Palaces released two EPs but Butler's name didn't appear on either. No promo shots, no social networking sites, no interviews, and no press releases were issued by the enigmatic, Seattle-based project, but that didn't stop the local press from throwing praise at these EPs, which hit much harder than Digable while retaining that forward-thinking wordplay. The EPs became favorites at the Sub Pop offices, too, and in 2010, the usually indie rock label signed the project, releasing their debut album, Black Up, in 2011. Next, it transpired that Tendai Maraire was responsible for most of the instrumentation on that record and that Shabazz Palaces was, in fact, a duo.
Born in 1987, Corrado “Mecna” Grilli is one of the most important rappers of italian scene. He founded Microphones Killarz (an italian hip-hop band) and the hip-hop collective Blue Nox Academy, along with Kiave, Ghemon, Macro Marco and Hyst. His debut album was Disco Inverno (2012, Macro Beats/Audioglobe), and was a great success, which a longlasting tour followed to. Among the venues: Hip Hop TV B-Day and Mi Ami Festival both in Milan. In 2013 Mei – Meeting delle etichette indipendenti awarded him as Best Solo Performer.
His new album Laska has been published by Beats/Universal Music for Macro.
