Origins, it’s where we come from. It’s what makes us real and on 2. July at Urban Spree, it is the place we will want to be.
Hailed by Hip-Hop legends and enthusiasts alike, Kasseem David Dean, better known as Swizz Beats will head a line-up of some of Hip-Hop’s finest, bringing NY to Berlin for a one-time Showcase ‘Origins’ hosted by Your Mom’s Agency (with the link) and sponsored by Reebok Classics.
As one of the heaviest hitters in Hip-Hop, Swizz Beats’ success goes far beyond his humble beginnings as a DJ, producing and collaborating with the business’ elite, including Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Cassidy, Beyonce, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Chris Brown and T.I.
Two- time IDA Vice World Champion and Deckpackers crew member SixKay joins the line-up of Origins promising to scratch Urban Spree to pieces. Today he is a member of the Snowgoons DJs as well as High Enders and can be heard on EGO FM’s “The Always Classic Radio Show”.
Representing the British contingent for the evening is Berlin-based Infinite Livez (Ninja Tune/Big Dada). The Chelsea Art College trained MC/Illustrator has come a long way since his first release on Big Dada back in 2004, forging his own signature style of psychadelic Electro/Hip-Hop fused beats.
The international line up is also joined by producer/MC, Black Cracker (Hinterhaus, NYC/Berlin) and Dreea Pavel (NYC/Berlin) to keep the dance floor pumping and Hometown Heroes HitYaWitThat Dj Crew (Berlin) will bring smooth Hip-Hop downbeats to the Spree.
The Berlin Edition of Reebok Classic Concert Series will be big. Real big. 2 July, 9pm. Urban Spree. Enough said.
