Supreme Cuts+The-Drum+Sich Mang+Haleek Maul


Tonight, Chicago schools Brooklyn in hazily refined funk: With their new album, Whispers in the Dark, Supreme Cuts applies some post-garage moves to reformulate hip-hop as the soundtrack to a summer afternoon’s catnap. The-Drum works from a similar blueprint, pushing it to airier, poppier heights. Sich Mang takes on the rougher, faster sounds of juke, but they lend the genre a blur and drone that lets them fit right in on this gauzy bill.
