Headlining the show will be Black Ilumin. He will also be performing at World DJ Fest on May 7th in Seoul. After invading the Seoul scene and earning recognition under the “DBSTK CRZZY” moniker, Black Ilumin has changed more than just his name. Black Ilumin is motivated to give birth to change not only within himself, but throughout the music industry. After a solid year of gigs, recording, videos and collaborations, it’s clear the versatile Filipino/American from San Jose, CA, is righteously making a statement in Seoul and relishing each chance to flex his hungry creative muscle. As the ingredients for solid all-round artist seep into reality, Black Ilumin’s skills as an MC, vocalist, lyricist, dancer and performer collectively gain intensity to now produce what can be labeled as a valuable product.
Casually up-front without being obnoxious, the combination of beats and rhymes can either seduce you into turning your lights down low or to go on some sort of gratifying rampage. Cross-pollinate the fire from a Rage Against The Machine track with the mellow of something more Mos Def, and you’re closer to tasting his sound. Choose from this spectrum and stick it in a blender, as Black Ilumin traverses with ease through the delicious grime-halls of Dubstep and Hip Hop all the way into the overground with House music or quasi-R&B styles much like Drake and N.E.R.D frontman (Pharrell). This unique sound is what makes labeling him difficult.
