If you live outside of the DMV (District Maryland and Virginia) area and you’re still sleeping on the talent that goes on in this city, then sleep no more. The DC area has been on fire lately in terms of music, art, and fashion. Unfortunately, it’s all in a bubble, and the rest of the world hasn’t a clue what’s going down in the Chocolate Caramel Latte City.

Enter Dastardly. The project from Grammy nominated producer Kokayi and DC EDM mainstay Sharkey. Their debut “Bright Out Loud,” is one of the most slept on albums even within the city. The track, Nasty Girl is an forward thinking take on B-More Club, becoming a truly dancable electrofunk banger.

The group combines everything from hip-hop to club, to soul and styles in between. The 5 song EP is a good look for only $5 at Amazon.
