ABOUT THE SERIES
The Baltimore Baltimore Boom Bap Society is a collaboration between producers Erik Spangler (DJ Dubble8) and Wendel Patrick. Their monthly improvised hip hop series is conceived as a forum for experimentation and collaboration between local hip hop artists, while placing hip hop in dialogue with other forms of music. Wendel Patrick & DJ Dubble8 invite special guests from Baltimore and beyond to perform with them in diverse combinations and explore a hybrid of free improvisation and beat-based composition. This much-lauded series ran from 2011-2019 at the beloved and now-shuttered Windup Space. After a two year hiatus, we are so excited to give them a new performance home for experimentation, collaboration and community-building.
