The Run The Whips Tour

The Run The Whips Tour featuing Corina Corina + dubldragon. + DJ Halo

After spending nearly half of 2015 touring, NYC/Oakland-based electro-soul vocalist Corina Corina and open-format road veteran, DJ HALO (Fake Four) are hitting the road again for a few fun filled weeks on the way to South by Southwest 2016. This time they’re joining forces with fellow Deep Thinka Records act, Bay Area-based mc/producer duo dubldragon. In support of Corina’s upcoming ‘Run the Blues’ EP and dubldragon.’s recently released album ‘Y Wulvs?’, these multi-genre acts will be hitting some of their favorite tour stops from Cali to Texas!

Covering entirely different bases musically – from Corina Corina’s intense energy and intimate melodies, to dubldragon.’s frenetic mash up of lyricism and musicality, to DJ Halo’s soon-to-be-moderately-famous Jukebox Hero routine – the RTW tour promises to bring a little bit of something for everyone.

Though this will mark the first time that dubldragon. has seen the indie music Mecca that is SXSW, this is far from true for Corina and Halo, who have performed at the festival three and five times, respectively.

This musical trio (and human quartet) will be working their way through Oregon, Idaho, and Colorado as they journey towards Austin, TX. Check the listing of cities and dates below, and make sure not to miss them when they’re in your town!

2015 marks two decades since Count Bass D’s debut,Pre-Life Crisis, hit the scene. Since then, the self-described “Fender Rhodes Scholar” has augmented his skills as a multi-instrumentalist by truly mastering the art of sampling as well as the art of intellect. Of the start of career he has said, “my goal was to show that hip-hop had so much diversity and we could consider it a legitimate art form.” And over the past 20 years he has proven just that through his ability to push the envelope both sonically and lyrical on records like Dwight Spitz (2002), BegBorrowSteel (2003) and Act Your Waist Size (2006); instrumental gems like Ear Regardless (2007), Handshake Vs Dap (2014), and Cloak & Dapper (2015); and through collaborations with some of hips hop’s most creative and avant-garde artists: MF Doom, J Rawls, Edan, and Blueprint to name a few.

Now Booking Dates for 2016 Count Bass D “Instantly New” National Tour

Despite his impressive catalog, it’s historically been rare to find Count Bass D consistently on tour. That is, until he teamed up with perennial road warriors Blueprint and DJ Rare Groove in 2014 on the highly regarded “Respect The Architect Tour“. The experience proved to be pivotal on many levels, the most important of which is the promise that 2016 holds a new full length album and accompanying 70 city tour entitled, Instantly New.
