The hip will be hopping at the SpaceLab as Elijah Malik and The Kii team up to perform live at 5 pm, June 24th UTC (1 pm EST).
Elijah Malik is a San Francisco-based rapper who draws inspiration from a range of musical influences, including Rage Against The Machine and Muse. Through his music, Malik contemplates his own identity and the society we live in.
Malik has teamed up with The Kii, a producer and artist duo out of Chicago. The Kii duo have drawn upon their respective influences of jazz, gospel, and neo soul to produce an electrifying Trap and Soul sound that characterizes their unique musical output.
The SpaceLab, in Milky Way, Andromeda, is a project designed by Yassin El-Aklok, Yuma Lenz, and Bastian Wagner, all students of Popakademie in Germany. The project was overseen by David Stammer, organizer of the Future Music Camp.
The space was created to bring music and performers to the metaverse. Music has always been a part of the human experience, and as technology has advanced, so too has our ability to create and enjoy music in a virtual world.
Music concerts in the metaverse are about bringing people together to explore how we can enjoy shared IRL experiences virtually.
The SpaceLab is a 3-story space, with the concert to be held on the ground floor. Up on the roof is a rooftop bar and a place to chill. Join us in Voxels on June 24 for some seriously good rap.
