A Night in Brooklyn with Trippy Turtle

August 7, 2014 -

Jersey Club is a genre that has bubbled under the radar for a long time, but recently its unique sounds and styles have reached a whole new audience. Case in point: Trippy Turtle's sold out show at the Glasslands Gallery last Thursday. 275 bodies packed into the small Brooklyn venue after-hours for a late night of bedspring squeaks, water droplets, and FoFoFadi's. The enigmatic 21 year old producer hit the scene early last year with an introduction from Cashmere Cat. Because of their similar monikers and predilection for a certain style of club music, many speculated that they were one and the same. But despite his best efforts, Trippy Turtle's identity eventually surfaced as LidoLido, a famous Norwegian rapper, singer, and songwriter. You also may recognize his work under the name Lido, whose recent releases have lit up the blogosophere with their originality and creative finesse.

After a solid opening set from buzzing local act Obey City, Trippy Turtle hit the stage donning his signature costume. The crowd came to life, dancing to his popular remixes of Justin Timberlake's "Señorita," Drake's "Furthest Thing," and Robin Thicke's "Give It 2 U". His set also included some originals from Nadus and The Weeknd. A personal highlight was when he dropped an unreleased remix to Rustie's criminally under-appreciated "Triadzz". After an hour and a half straight of unrelenting Jersey Club madness, 2am had rolled around and the weeknight seemed like it was coming to a close. "I'm supposed to end my set in five minutes," Trippy Turtle announced with a smirk. "But we all know that's not going to happen..."
