RP BOO with Alejandro Marenco event photo

RP BOO with Alejandro Marenco

Saturday March 9th

RP BOO with support by local icon Alejandro Marenco. 

RP Boo @rp_boo_official – "Chicago producer Kavain Space, AKA RP Boo, invented footwork with his 1997 track “Baby Come On.” A dancer at first, Space learned to produce thanks to Dance Mania affiliate DJ Slugo. By bumping up the tempo of ghetto house he established a new template that lit a fire under an entire generation of dancers and producers. In the wake of footwork’s expansion outside of Chicago, the Planet Mu label released two retrospectives of RP Boo’s pioneering work – 2013’s Legacy and 2015’s Classics Vol.1. Space continues to produce and DJs around the world, the enduring success of his music proving that there’s still no one quite like him." -Red Bull Music Academy

Alejandro Marenco @alejandro_mrnco is a Nicaraguan-born artist creating electronic music inspired by the vibrant cultural tapestry of his homeland and his own diasporic experience. At once perreo and psychedelic, he weaves a variety of sounds from endless inspirations: Caribbean sound system culture, Miami's bubbling underground, and UK labels such as Livity Sound, Timedance, and Local Knowledge. Elastic beats, industrial percussion, fluid synths, oscillating rhythms, and a flourish for ever-changing instrumentation, Marenco’s mixes are reverberating moments of kaleidoscopic euphoria.
