Juakali at Dubwar in NYCJuakali is an MC and lyrical stylist that I first heard perform with Joe Nice at a Smog event at the Echoplex a few weeks ago; he delivers his rhymes with positive vibes and a melodic island-lilt that perfectly complements the dark waves of dubstep bass. With dubstep’s dirty depth, you don’t need heavy, machine-gun delivered death raps that push you towards the floor; much better is the offset of a river of bouncing vocals like Juakali’s, laid over the beats and bassline like a ribbon of hopeful smoke over the low end wobble. Inhale.

Juakali will be performing this Saturday August 1 at Jujubeats Festival in Orange County. There are several stages of amazing world-class talent, but there’s only one place where you will find me and my bretheren of bass, and that is the front of the dance floor at the Flower Power Garden with Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Z-Trip, 6Blocc, Kush Arora, Mozaic and Juakali. Nice!

Right now tickets online start at $45 and there is camping available for this one night festie.

Also catch Juakali at this year’s Decibel Festival in Seattle taking place September 24-27 in the clubs, dance floors, bars, streets and parks of the fair Emerald City.
