Last night, FSD and Red Bull Sound Select joined forces for our final event of 2016. Yes, it’s been an exciting year from the two brands, having curated events worldwide with the likes of Chief Keef, Jeremih, Soulja Boy, Smino, BJ The Chicago Kid, Too $hort, Playboi Carti, Joey Purp, Martin $ky, WarholSS, Femdot, Payroll Giovanni and many more.

But last night, we capped off an incredible year with our final installment, which served as our Holiday Party of sorts, highlighted by a reunion of the legendary Chicago duo The Cool Kids. Yes, that’s correct: Chuck and Mikey are back, and we brought their first reunion show in Chicago to Thalia Hall last night. The results? History. A sold out night, filled with love and incredible energy — and Holiday cheer. As you can tell from the pics and video below, it was an incredible night, and despite being up against odds such as a 3 degree temperature we still brought the city out. In a major way.

Payroll Giovanni and Femdot rounded out the bill, while someguynamedty and Owen Bones handled DJ duties. I have to admit, Femdot really stood out last night and there was a lot of buzz in the room about him. Expect big things from him in 2017.

It was truly a night to remember. We’ll be back in a few months for our official 2017 kickoff, but until then, enjoy the pics and clips below.

Owen Bones connects with The Cool Kids on “Where On Earth”

screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-11-37-49-am

For all the B.S. that’s gone down in 2016, there have been a few moments of vibrance — and one of those was The Cool Kids announcing they were reuniting. It sent shockwaves throughout the industry, and since that claim they’ve been dropping heat left and right. Yesterday, they unleashed the best of the bunch with “Connect Four” — and today they’re back again alongside producer Owen Bones, for “Where On Earth,” a loosie from Owen’s Dive Club album, which dropped via all streaming platforms today.

You can stream the full project below, as well as “Where On Earth,” featuring new verses from Sir Mike and Sir Charles. Dive Club also features Saba and Tunji Ige.

Be sure to catch The Cool Kids live at our next Red Bull Sound Select show at Thalia Hall on December 14th. Tickets are only $3 with RSVP.

The Cool Kids reconnect for “Connect Four”

screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-1-08-57-pm

Yes! YES! Now this is what the f*** I’m talking about. Happy Birthday to me. Indeed. Indeed. Back when The Cool Kids announced that they’d be reuniting, this was what I was hoping for. That classic Chuck and Mikey, but with that 2016 twist to it — and “Connect Four” is exactly that. Yeah Connect 4 might be a game, but “Connect Four” is not for play. This joint is too serious, and exactly what I’ve been waiting for.

By now you’ve surely heard that we’re doing a Cool Kids reunion show on December 14th at Thalia Hall, right? Well, if you don’t know…you know the rest. The Cool Kids, Payroll Giovanni and Femdot. It’s gonna be a night to remember. RSVP for $3 entry right here.
