If you checked out our review of Black Milk’s last show at El Club a little over a year ago, you know that his live performances are a must-see for any fan of his music. The renowned Detroit artist has collaborated with some of the biggest names in hip hop through his work with close collaborator Danny Brown, and has made a name for himself as a remarkable producer and musical curator through his ability to bring his beats to life with the help of his impeccable live band.
On Thursday, September 12th, 2019, Black Milk will return to El Club once again in support of his latest project, DiVE.
With more than a decade and a half of industry experience and a rich catalog of recordings, Black Milk has successfully transitioned from one of hip-hop’s young sensations to a trusted virtuoso with a uniquely well-rounded pedigree as a producer, rapper, and performer. Black Milk’s DiVE EP (August 2) is a continuation of 2018’s powerful and politically-charged album FEVER. It finds him taking a survey from the ledge, preparing to plunge into a sea of change.
“DiVE represents me looking ahead at 2020,” Black shares. “Stepping into this new decade, I want to have a mentality of progression. Once 2020 clicks in, I want to leave a lot of my old ways, traditions, and mentalities behind.” Listeners of FEVER may have sensed this energy with the self-awakening “unVEil,” the pivotal “eVE,” and the EP’s transitional genesis, “DiVE.”
