Bringing live transmissions from the future of sound, this time straight from Seattle, Washington, INTASTELLA BURST presents the experimental electro hip-hop/rap of SHABAZZ PALACES live in Hong Kong!

The mysterious Seattle-based hip-hop collective known as SHABAZZ PALACES is comprised of Ishmael Butler aka 'Palaceer Lazaro', (also known as 'Butterfly' of 90s jazz-rap group DIGABLE PLANETS) and multi-instrumentalist Tendai 'Baba' Maraire.

One of the few hip-hop acts signed to the legendary indie label SUB POP RECORDS, SHABAZZ PALACES goes far beyond the confines of conventional hip-hop. Their 2011 critically acclaimed debut album 'Black Up' received high praise for it’s boundary pushing sound, which incorporates elements of jazz, soul, blues, and electro over a hip-hop landscape. During their live shows, they do not only rap but do their own live instrumentation. With congas, drums and samplers, they use aspects of performance art to create a unique and moving live experience.
