DJBooth_logo2x

Minneapolis, MN -- Walking into downtown Minneapolis' Fine Line Music Cafe for the March 4th kickoff of

MUSIC2DREAM2

, a concert series presented by local emcee and DJBooth member Michael “

Young Son

” Hannah, I assumed that the name was simply a catchy tie-in to the title of his sophomore LP,

Dreamer's Poetry

, but that wasn't the case—as quickly became clear, the tour was a truly collaborative labor of love, in which many of the Twin Cities' most noteworthy under-the-radar talents had come together to make their musical dreams a reality.

First to hit the stage was

Young Capo

, a 19-year old rapper who mixed introspective cuts like “Empty Dreamz” with harder-hitting material detailing his sky-high ambitions. After a quick, two-song set by

Kid Auspicious

, hip-hop storyteller

Hypel

stepped into the spotlight; highlights of his set included an intense performance of “Runnin',” the lead single off his forthcoming debut LP, and a cut describing his feelings around the birth of his son. After providing hook vocals on one of Hypel's records, R&B singer

Brandon Trevon

treated the audience to a few of his own jams.

Though all the acts came with plenty of positive energy, the night truly kicked into high gear when Young Son stepped onstage. After a spoken-word intro backed by

A.J. Soul

's ambient keyboard accompaniment, he launched straight into a high-octane set drawn mainly from the forthcoming

Dreamer's Poetry

LP (due out in May).

The indisputable highlight of the show was Young Son's “Juicy Remix” of Booth-approved single “

This Far

.” With the original beat from

Biggie

's 1994 classic booming in the background, the emcee had the audience rapping along as he turned in a passionate performance clearly inspired by the late icon's out-of-this-world stage presence.

Hannah prefaced his last song, “Hello World,” with a few words on the tour, “What keeps me going is the ambition of knowin' I'm going somewhere someday—that's what MUSIC2DREAM2 is all about!”

Max Haben

and his backing band,

the Fix

, capped the show off with a blend of rock and hip-hop that had one enthusiastic audience member doing the worm. By the time all the night's performers took the stage to say a few closing words, it was clear that the passionate dedication to music that brought these big dreamers together had the potential to take them farther than they'd ever thought possible.
