Staff Pick: RL Grime at Skully’s

Trap music! Allow me to be the latest EDM neophyte whiteboy to express my love for the genre du jour. Regardless of how you feel about ripping Atlanta hip-hop thump from its native environment and crossbreeding it with club-friendly dubstep, RL Grime is indisputably one of the best 808-weilders wilding out. The L.A. DJ/producer is capable of converting rap favorites like Cam’ron’s “Hey Ma” and Drake’s “Club Paradise” into screwed underwater fantasias, building his own half-time club stompers, even lacing Kanye’s “Mercy” with seasonal tomfoolery on his Christmas mix. His appearance at Le Boom’s two-year anniversary party Saturday at Skully’s promises to hit you harder than New Year’s Eve. Also rocking the party: roeVy, Druid Cloak, Attak/Carma and Network EDM.
