First up, expect some new music from some amazing artists, as well as a nice compilation project celebrating our 20th year! And of course we’ve got some great artists available for tour dates all over the world. More details to come, but expect to see Blueprint, Corina Corina, Substantial, Tanya Morgan, Chuckie Campbell, and dubldragon. out on the road in support of new albums this year. We’re also going to update this damn website at some point too. Stay tuned, and Happy New Year, y’all.

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!
