JDub’s SOULICO is playing the New Israel Fund’s New Generations Benefit at the Bowery Ballroom this September 9th, co-chaired by Jewschool’s own Dan Sieradski and friend of the blog Dana Raviv! This is the biggest event for those who give a damn about what kind of a country Israel is on the inside — supporting social justice grassroots orgs in Israel. Last year’s concert with Balkan Beat Box was undeniably hot.
Covered last week in Pitchfork, SOULICO is a four-member DJ Crew from Tel Aviv, the first DJs in the Middle East to master the trifecta of production, turntablism, and party-rocking skills. “Their music is a unique mix of hip-hop, middle eastern melodies, dancehall, electronic, Reggae, English, Hebrew, Arabic, and Spanish.” Rising from poverty and extreme hardship on the streets of Netanya, special guests AXUM have been marked as “Israel’s biggest hip hop hope.”
