When I was asked to shoot Listen Out Festival, I accepted and was looking forward to it. After seeing Just Blaze was on the lineup (responsible for hits such as Kanye West’s ‘Touch The Sky’, Jay Z’s Blueprint albums, Eminem’s ‘No Love featuring Lil Wayne’ and countless others), I became excited.
I’ve never seen a DJ before – well, a DJ that makes his living off the craft. And a craft it was – there was no ‘pressing play’ moves here. The beat changed and mixed rapidly and it must have been a set of 100 songs by the end of the hour-long set. With some extra help from TNGHT (responsible for Kanye West’s Yeezus track, ‘Blood On The Leaves’), the set pleased the sea of people at Listen Out, and the dance off between Just Blaze and Lunice from TNGHT was the cherry on top.
All the artists that performed at Listen Out will have their shots uploaded to my portfolio once my contract permits.
