Fresh off the release of their mixtape Dirty Slums 2, hip-hop legends Slum Village stopped by Signal Kitchen to get creative and share their sound just before the release of their seventh full-length studio album Evolution. Coming from Detroit, Michigan, this group hardly needs an introduction. They have been prolific since 1996, pushing the bounds of hip-hop and keeping us all entertained in the process.
The local Burlington crowd piled into our venue to enjoy a solid live performance of classic tracks and fresh tunes, both familiar and underground. The guys’ creative output didn’t stop at their live set. Not to miss an opportunity to work with some of the greats, we assembled a live band of Vermont musicians and recorded some new work with the group. And of course, all work and no play is never healthy – we even kicked back with a bit of quality recreational time shooting hoops.
