freshdark™ intends to create an environment that caters to the exposure and appreciation of emerging artists whose styles explore the fusions of Electronica, Funk, Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Hip Hop music in an abstract and organic fashion. They highlight mastery of instrumentation and audio equipment, premier visual artists, and culturally relevant entrepreneurs.

This Tuesday will feature five Houston artists who manage the task quite well. The headliner, JayLotus, a connoisseur of electronically driven production with heavy Jazz and Hip Hop influence, will perform a set including the use of a drum machine, synthesizer, and alto saxophone simultaneously.

The soundtrack for the evening will encompass tunes from the likes of J. Dilla, Flying Lotus, Robert Glasper, Fat Jon, and many more that fall into lane of that electronic Hip Hop/Jazz sound.  Can’t leave out classic creators such as the late Donald Byrd.
