D.A.D.T. is proud to present the groundbreaking artist
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LE1F ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LE1F, aka Khalif Diouf, is a New-York-based rapper and DJ. He attended Wesleyan University along with Das Racist and made the beat for their breakout hit Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. After releasing a single, “Mind Body”, his debut mixtape, Dark York, was released on April 15th, 2012 on Himanshu Suri’s Greedhead Music.
More recently he has released a second mixtape 'Fly Zone' which is receiving rave reviews.
Pitchfork writes "All in all, Fly Zone is an epically audacious record, boiling down to essentially a 13-track demand from Le1f to be allowed access to a mainstream audience without sacrificing a shred of the identity that sets him apart from nearly every rapper a mainstream audience has been drawn to."
Having just completed tours in Japan, Australia and Europe Le1f is ready to return to the states and DADT is honored to welcome him to our stage.
But it only gets better...
For this event DADT is working in conjunction with the Together Festival! This means all your tickets will be honored if you are participating in the citywide showcase of amazing bands and artists. Here is a lil more info on the festival.
```````````TOGETHER FESTIVAL 2013```````````
Together Festival is an annual celebration of music, art and technology, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The festival was first held in February, 2010, with a primary focus on electronic dance music. As the festival has evolved however, its laser focus has shifted to encompass a broader scope of musical genres as well as a thorough exploration of the art and technology sectors.
Through a week-long series of educational and professional discussion panels, art installations, film screenings, and musical performances at venues around the Boston/Cambridge area, Together Festival has attracted around 20,000 attendees per year. Although historically based in Boston, the festival has found its footing across the Charles River in Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts and expects to be working closely with Cambridge City Hall in 2013.
In 2012, Together hosted musical artists such as Photek, RJD2, Mala,Todd Edwards, Dillon Francis, Nero, Phill Niblock, 6th Borough Project and more, while hosting film screenings for the Chemical Brothers movie Don’t Think, as well as the Electric Daisy Carnival documentary.
In 2013 the line up is even more wild... check here for deets:
