Bandshell

Nosaj Thing DJ Set + Kimbra + Bells Atlas

Tuesday, July 2 , 7 pm – Saturday, July 6, 9:30 pm

Nosaj Thing, Kimbra, and Bells Atlas will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Nosaj Thing, a.k.a. the L.A.-based Korean-American DJ/producer Jason Chung, will transform the Bandshell into a pulsing, ecstatic dancefloor with “music that evokes at once the infinite blackness of deep space and the curving, gleaming chrome that moves through it” (Pitchfork). His latest album, Parallels from 2017—a comeback record of sorts made after his gear and years of work were stolen— is a “curvilinear and sinuous 30-minute odyssey from one of the most consistent and daring producers working” (Onion AV Club).

Last year Kimbra gave us Primal Heart, “a slick electronic pop album teeming with sharp hooks” (Rolling Stone) that showcased the killer R&B delivery that has made the New Zealander an in-demand collaborator with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Gotye. Her music, though pop-focused, is boundaryless in its own way; her diverse influences encompass Prince, Björk, Minnie Riperton, and Jeff Buckley.

Bells Atlas’ Afropop futurism is a sound “pretty easy to get lost in … lush harmonies fill your ears … their groove is anything but ordinary." (Okayplayer) The enchanting Oakland five-piece has been making waves with its latest release, the aptly titled The Mystic.

Bandshell

Mick Jenkins + Leikeli47 + Leven Kali + Joy Postell

Friday, July 5 , 7:30 pm – 10 pm

Mick Jenkins, Leikeli47, Leven Kali, and Joy Postell will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

The Chicago MC Mick Jenkins named his 2018 album Pieces of a Man after Gil Scott Heron’s 1971 masterpiece, and the reference is both boldly ambitious and apt. Jenkins has been praised since early in his career for his nuanced wordplay and heady approach to addressing weighty subject matter, and his sophomore full length effort brings this aspect of his work to the forefront. 

Brooklyn’s Leikeli47, whose uplifting lyrics tackle “the trials and triumphs of her home and the resilience of black womanhood,” (Pitchfork) co-headlines this quadruple bill of forward-looking hip hop and soul. Her 2018 record Acrylic, the follow-up to her 2017 debut Wash & Set, has marked the mysterious MC/singer/producer as a rising creative force to be reckoned with.

Born in Holland and raised in L.A., the singer/producer Leven Kali comes across “like a mix of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars” (XXL). A handful of high-profile collaborations—including features on tracks by Drake and Playboi Carti—have him on a fast track.  

Joy Postell, and emerging voice out of Baltimore, “artfully blends jazz, soul, and R&B into an intoxicating, freeform swirl of sounds and instrumentation” (Fader) on her debut record, the politically charged Diaspora.
