Red Bull Music Presents: Honolulu ft. Kaytranada, Mr. Carmack, Lou Phelps & more


HONOLULU, HI (November 14, 2018) – Red Bull Music Presents: Honolulu. On December 1st, Red Bull Music Presents a dance party celebrating Honolulu’s world-famous nightlife culture inspired by some of the islands most-influential clubs and parties. The event features prolific Canadian artist Kaytranada’s first-ever DJ set in Hawaii, as well as an exclusive dance house set from producer and former Oahu resident Mr. Carmack, with additional performances from Montreal-based rapper/producer Lou Phelps and Hawaiian DJ Tittahbyte in a showcase of the best North American nightlife culture rarely seen on the island.
Honolulu is home to a small, but thriving nightlife scene that attracts an international audience, despite operating in its own secluded corner of the Pacific off the traditional touring route of all but the largest global acts. While emerging artists often find it difficult to make the trip financially feasible, a few residents and dedicated transplants have helped to fill that void over the years — often through personal connections and bookings. DJ Harvey famously moved to Oahu and co-founded the renowned boutique nightclub thirtynine hotel in Honolulu’s Chinatown. Asylum Afterhours, the island’s home of underground techno and house music, has built an international reputation bringing intimate sets from global artists to the small, members-only dance club just outside of Downtown. The legacy of these and other institutions has helped to shape and grow a promising music scene absent of any real major industry network.
“We need events like these to provide a bridge and platform between local and mainland artists” explains Tittahbyte. “It’s about working together and collaborating for the love of music.”
With this event, the aim is to inspire and help cultivate a new generation of Hawaiian DJs, producers, promoters and ravers – set to take the reins of the scene and keep the party going. Celebrating multiple generations of Hawaii’s dance music culture, converting a warehouse space in Honolulu’s Kaka’ako arts district into an intimate one-night-only underground club inspired by some of the city’s iconic venues and parties.
The show is set to take place in Honolulu’s Kaka’ako neighborhood on December 1st, with tickets available here.
About Kaytranada
Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian artist Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise in the past couple of years with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen overnight. Before touring the globe and amassing millions of hits online with his series of beloved tracks and mixes, the young man came up as a true disciple, absorbing hip-hop and r&b culture since his childhood and finding ways to make the music his own.

About Mr. Carmack
‘Make music like no one’s listening’ is the motto of Aaron Carmack, and appropriately so. His story is a three-part series, divided into factions of past, present, and future. Every element of the past as Aaron Carmack would explain, has had an effect on who he is today as both a writer/producer and DJ. Being born and raised in San Francisco, attending and dropping out of college in Long Beach, CA, moving to Oahu for three years and living off income from monthly releases on Bandcamp — Carmack’s music is an expression and perpetual reflection of all of it.

About Lou Phelps
A longtime fixture of the Montreal arts scene, Lou Phelps is one of Canada’s foremost purveyors of club-rap bangers. Lou started making music in 2011 with Kaytranada, forming a future-rap group called The Celestics, releasing their debut project Massively Massive. Using the moniker, Lou Phelps, Lou developed a reputation for creating tasteful and danceable hip-hop music.

About Tittahbyte
It’s not an exaggeration to describe Tittahbyte as a force of nature swelling up from within Honolulu’s DJ scene in the past five years; building bridges from the core of Oahu’s underground music community, its mainstream scene and international artists on tour.
