Boulevards feat. Slo 'Mo Party at the Hideout

  • The Hideout 1354 West Wabansia Avenue Chicago, IL, 60642 United States (map)

Join us for a full-out, funk-forward dance party with Slo 'Mo's Audio Jack and Boulevards!

Boulevards is Jamil Rashad, a modern funk songwriter and performer from Raleigh, NC. Following in the footsteps of pioneers like Prince, Rick James and Earth, Wind & Fire, Boulevards synthesizes that with the adventurousness of Talking Heads and Grace Jones, and finally modernizes it with current production values, nodding to Pharrell and Breakbot along with both modern and vintage hip hop. 

This 4-track EP looks back at the post-disco boogie sound while steadfastly looking to the future. Working with producers Isaac Gálvez, Taste Nasa and Rollergirl!, Boulevards has delivered on his promise for party jams. The infectious two-minute incessant bass hook of "Got to Go," the future electro of "Forgot to Mention," the mid-tempo groove of "Honesty" and the Bootsy Collins-meets-Quincy Jones-in-2015 attack of "Sanity" lay down the template for the Shape of Funk to Come. And the funk to come will be Boulevards
