Brothers Khemistry and Stix, also known as "Tha 808's," collaborated with DJ Navarris in a new hit song and video titled "Space Night." The video was directed by "Def Pop" who did an astonishing job at capturing the duo's beautiful city, Chicago, in various breathtaking scenes.
I was lucky enough to be featured in the music video as well, shooting at the beach with the gorgeous city in the background and also in a forest that added a mysterious feel to the video. While shooting and after hearing the song repeatedly, I could not get the song out of my head, with its catchy beat and verses! The ideas everyone shared were so unique that I could not wait to see it when it finally came out. The originality and overall creativity in the scenes (I won't spoil it too much, you'd have to see for yourself!) has set the bar really high for any other music videos releasing this summer. Not even a week later, the video has over 900 views on YouTube and has been aired on Power 92! Tha 808's have been working hard on their new mix tape dropping soon and have finally gotten to show their fans a preview of all their hard work and abilities. Make sure to rock with these rising Chicago stars, Khemistry, Stix, and Navarris, and give the video a view while we all wait on the upcoming mix tape.
Since 2012, Chicago has become a mecca for some of the most influential artists in the industry. Artists such as Chance the Rapper, Kanye West, and Noname have all positioned themselves as leaders by putting their own take on signature Chicago sounds.
Recently, I caught up with Evie in between her set where she gave me the scoop on how she got into Djing and where she wants to see her newest project, Babes Only, grow to. Like anyone wanting to dive into a creative lane, she started a blog and eventually, began learning how to DJ firsthand from Smoko Ono, another prominent Chicago producer.
