Last night. at Charlies Cafe, IIIDAZE hosted their own show which they entitled “To The Grave”. The show was in celebration of the release of their new album “Stars Never Die” and featured a very diverse lineup of artists including VonSensei, Daniel Hex, Breezepark and Bittersweet.
The show began with a set by DJ Scholaship and then VonSensie’s set where he preformed all new music including his newest release “Staring and Smiling”. Next we heard from Daniel Hex, a Detroit based artist who is featured on the song “Stellar” on “Stars Never Die”. After an intermission where we were entertained with sounds by Andre Palace, Bittersweet took the stage and performed new music as well as fan favorites such as “Bitteraintshit” and of course, “Im No Bitch”. As we came to the end of the show, Breezepark gave a very high energy performance which set the tone well for IIIDAZE to come on stage and close the show out. IIIDAZE preformed “Elixer”, “Queens”, and “Stellar” with Daniel Hex along with other songs from the newly released album.
In conclusion, the show was a very well put together display of underground talent. We can’t wait to see what IIIDAZE has in store for fans next. Check out their new album “Stars Never Die” here!

The highly anticipated project promotes ideas of positivity, progression and pushing ones self beyond personal limits and the limits society has in place.
The project, which was released just in time for summer, has a very clean, unique sound that in top quality. The production on the album was done by Virginia greats such Michael Seven and HighDefRazjah who hails from the Def Corp collective, a group that is no stranger to the Virginia music scene and who also has a lot in store for the summer.

Music has such an influence on ones outlook on life and with all the negative messages circulating in music today, music that has a captivating, unique sound and motivates listeners to challenge themselves to go beyond the normal is a breath of fresh air. With its pristine sound and positive message, “Bloom” is definitely an album you will want to add to your summer playlist.

After a long hiatus from performing, Breezepark has kicked off the summer off by headlining their very own show at the NorVa this past weekend. The Suffolk based collective, who has just released their new project “Bloom”, had generated quite a buildup around this event and anyone lucky enough to be in attendance would certainly agree that they did not disappoint.
The concert itself was a perfect reflection of the group themselves, being that it was very high energy, top quality and extremely diverse. The lineup for the show was quite impressive and versatile featuring artists such as IIIDAZE, another up and coming collective from the VA area who has gained a lot of attention from the recent release of their “Night Shift” visual, as well as iLPackMob, a more seasoned collective who have come to be known as a favorite in the 757 area. Other artists on the lineup included Laws, FullMetalParkas and Zara Bash who is also featured on Breezeparks song “Paradise”. The sounds for the evening were provided by DJs Andre Palace and Ril McCoy, both of which did an incredible job of keeping the energy flowing for the entire duration of the show.
Overall the event made for a great evening. Each artist and group brought out their own following which contributed to a very diverse audience full of fans, who at the end of the night, did not leave disappointed.
