2012 has seen the explosive rise of two musical subgenres into the mainstream: the high-octane womp-womp of dubstep, and the gritty 808 slap of trap music. Whether you’re an enthusiast of either genre, or have no idea what any of this is, this multimedia evening is for you. Live DJs, music production demonstrations, insight from industry experts, and lively enthusiasts will help us examine the popularity of dubstep and trap, and how they reflect youth culture today. Moderated by Seattle based writer, performer and creative producer Hollis Wong-Wear. Speakers include Mad Decent's Astronomar, Larry Mizell, Jr. of both KEXP and The Stranger, and Adam Ruble and Press of Shift.
