The Night Cat, Article One and Slingshot Proudly Presents
The Pharcyde (USA)
Hip hop progenitors, The Pharcyde bring their 30th anniversary celebration of debut album ‘Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde’ to The Night Cat on 22nd February.
Formed in 1989, the L.A crew made their name in ’92 with ‘Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde’, which became one of the most important hip hop albums of the ‘90s. The record remains one of the most boisterous, musically vibrant rap albums ever released. No surprise that Kanye West once declared it his all time favourite album.
Their AU tour features the group’s rappers, Imani, Fatlip and Slimkid3, who are all legends in their own right.
Supporting will be Melbourne’s Yung Shogun, performing a special live set in collaboration with iconic all-star Melbourne band “Now Here This”. His sound was formed by his mother’s love for the classics of blues, jazz and hip-hop, but secretly entranced by a step-father who had a fondness for heavy metal. Yung Shogun entrances with his synthesised rap, with a soundscape that keeps a foot in each world.
Plus, DJ MZ RIZK (Rizky's Block Party, Hip Hop High Tea) holds down the party, delivering hip hop, soul, funk & global music goodness to keep you moving all night long.
We acknowledge that this event will be held on Wurundjeri land of the Kulin Nation and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
