Very excited to announce that Future Rootz Records will release remixes of “What Goes Up” featuring Tony Allen! “What Goes Up Remixed” is set to release on Friday, April 26, 2019, and features remixes by Maga Bo, Ron Trent, AfroQbano, Sound Culture, Jose Marquez, Sol Power Sound, and our very own Kevin Ford.
For this show, the band’s newest additions, rising emcee Legit and vocalist Rhea the Second, join the band for this one-night only performance. Expect a mix of afrobeat, hiphop, jazz, and soul… all centered around Allen’s signaure drum beats.
For What Goes Up, the group is the first and only American afrobeat band to release a full album with Tony Allen, and staying true to the band’s form, shaped each song by flipping the afrobeat foundation sideways. Chicago takes center stage, with local emcees and vocalists such as J.C. Brooks, Legit, Akenya, and Kiara Lanier being featured on each song.
Time to celebrate! On Sat, December 16 we are putting on a very special show with many featured guests to celebrate the release of What Goes Up. Guests include JC Brooks, Ugochi, Legit, Akenya and more. Our dancers will help get you down, and to help kick off the night expect full sets from our friends Sam Trump Soul Vortex, Fury Hip Hop, and Future Rootz (DJ sets). Doors will be buzzing at 8PM.
Advance tickets are $13 with vinyl packages starting at $30. Yes, VINYL!
Oh, and we’ll be debuting NEW music as well! Get your tickets online while you can.
