Ras G

The {move} family are back with a very special edition of their monthly Rhythmatism series at The Bird. We are very pleased to announce the imminent arrival of El Ay-Lien #1 … Captain of The Afrikan Space Program, power forward of the Brainfeeder Crew! RAS_G & THE AFRICAN SPACE PROGRAM, Thursday 22nd of July at The Bird.

Ras_G’s music is rich with space-funkified rhythms, air-horns, natty chattin, subterranean bass lines, colossal percussion and glorious highs. This is the music that people will be playing in the ghettos of Mars in the year 3014.

Ras_G has been a fixture on the underground beat/hiphop scene in Los Angeles since the early 90s. He is a proud South Central LA resident and founding member of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder Crew! Ras along with Black Monk and Ron Stivers are the founders of the Poo-Bah Label.

Rhythmatism is a new monthly dance party brought to you by the {move} family featuring future music from the past and present. It happens on the last Friday of every month, or thereabouts, at Perth’s premier live underground music venue, The Bird. Get down early to every Rhythmatism night to pick up one of their super limited edition series of {move} mix-tapes. Free for the first 50 people to arrive, these highly sought-after gems feature a new mix from local and interstate DJs every month.
