The 25th Dynasty Presents: YEG to the World Vol. 1 [News]
Edmonton, AB – Brought to you by The 25th Dynasty crew – YEG to the World is a monthly showcase of Edmonton’s urban talent – from producers, DJs, MCs, singers, and more. The first installment goes down on Jun. 11 at YEG Dance Club (11845 Wayne Gretzky Dr) and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it. Unless you’ve been living under a rock – I’m sure you’re familiar with Calgary’s 10 at 10. Well, it’s E-Town’s turn to give our local artists the shine they deserve. I caught up with Dynasty’s Muta Mouraine who gave me the 411 behind the idea:
“I always had the idea of doing such an event, but it finally came to life after my recent performance at 10 at 10. That’s when I saw my vision come to life – which is to a base an event that is for the local acts in the city. Right away I sat with my Dynasty team and called Andy Huely (from YEG Dance Club) to toss him the idea. I also had to call [my friend] TAM out in Europe – to use his brand name YEG to the World.”
So there we have it – and we have a fantastic line-up to kick off Volume one; Young Tox, TAM, Evrlove, The Liberators, Blackson Gutta, DJ Baggylean, DJ TNT, and Jae Maz are all on deck. Cover is $10 at the door and the event goes down at 9 p.m. Moving forward – YEG to the World will be held every second Wednesday of the month. For more details keep it locked on the events Facebook page.
