Photos: Maluca and Mad Decent Host a Block Party at the South Street Seaport


Diplo’s Mad Decent label has been taking its act on the road lately, throwing block parties in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. For Saturday’s Seaport stop, the label teamed with local Pool Party auteurs Jelly NYC, bringing a slew of Mad Decent artists and horde of crowdsurfing, barrier-jumping fans to Pier 17 in lower Manhattan. Security was on edge–and, after Drake, can you blame them?–but the show ultimately went off without any major problems, unless you count Bronx-born firebrand Maluca spraying the crowd with any and all liquids within reach. Photos of that, along with shots of Das Racist’s Himanshu Suri looking real GQ, a dancing, randy Mad Decent mascot, and some very sweaty people, are below, courtesy of photographer Rebecca Smeyne.
