The pre-game is usually the chillest part of the night. You listen to music, kick back with some drinks, and take a moment to catch up with friends before the loud music at the club makes that impossible. Miami-born, New York-based DJ and producer Jubilee is turning her pre-game routine into a biweekly THUMP podcast, where she plays her favorite new music, hangs out with friends, and asks them to share what they've been working on and listening to. Starting today, you can tune in every two weeks for an intimate chat with some of the DJs, producers, music writers, vocalists, rappers, and other club world personalities whose disparate perspectives, cultural backgrounds, and sounds comprise the unique melting pot that is New York's club scene. The city has a deep history of dance music—The Pre-Game is about the people who keep it alive.
For the second installment of the podcast, Jubilee is joined by charismatic Brooklyn rapper Cakes da Killa and up-and-coming DJ and producer LSDXOXO. The former just dropped his new album, Hedonism, back in October on Ruffians/Thirty Tigers; the latter is someone who has been popping up all over NYC lately, at warehouse parties, fashion events, and just about anywhere in between. In addition to sets from Jubilee and LSDXOXO, the three will discuss Cakes Da Killa's new album, performing live, and dating apps, and try to figure out whether LSDXOXO is a real person or not.
