Lushlife Playing at SXSW

This just in from Lushlife aka Raj Haldar. He does a great live performance, so if you’re at SXSW, check him out:

Philadelphia’s Lushlife has always thrived on pushing listeners’ buttons when it comes to their perceptions of what hip-hop can be.  Whether it’s building a boom-bap rap track out of hyper chopped samples of lo-fi indie songwriter Ariel Pink, incorporating instruments like mandolin and live horns into his stage show, or soliciting remixes from psychedelic pop artists, it’s clear that Lushlife has an all-encompassing view of hip-hop that he wants to impress on the world.  With his latest leak, the emcee/producer repurposes a track from Georgia glo-fi outfit Washed Out, transporting the track’s beach side vibe to the street corner, & improbably conjuring images of Nas rapping over the 80’s synth heavy “Wild Style” soundtrack. “
