With all the talk about what’s “next” in the DMV focusing mainly on hip-hop, there are artists in this region of other genres who are doing their thing. Enter Dastardly, a group consisting of Grammy-nominated producer/MC Kokayi and DC mainstay Sharkey. Sometimes DC music can be paint by numbers, but Dastardly is pushing the boundaries of music in the DMV both artistically and creatively, and the result is nothing short of groundbreaking. Check it.
The full album drops this Winter. I hope to have more from Dastardly soon.
