On Saturday August 13th, Diplo’s taste-making label Mad Decent will bring the block party to Chicago, courtesy of Rdio.
Chicago’s lineup includes Curren$y, Dillon Francis, Dawn Golden & Rosy Corss, Bosco Delrey, Toy Selectah, Kito, Reptar, Lunice, BBU, Benzi and DJ Say Wut.
Mad Decent is known for its eclectic, internationally-flavored roster - they helped introduce Brazilian baile funk and Angolan kuduo to clubs around the world, not to mention playing a major role in new genre Moombahton—and have put out records by luminaries such as Bonde Do Role, Crookers, Rusko, and Toy Selectah. Mad Decent's influence on modern music is undeniable.
