Volume 2018 went down in Spokane Washington a couple weeks ago. Artists from Tacoma, Tri-Cities Portland, and Seattle artists all dropped in for a weekend hip-hop getaway.
Hip-Hop Turned Up This Year At Volume 2018!
Hip-hop in Spokane is the next big thing as Ryan Caraveo, Karma Knows and Yodi Mac visited June 1st. Along with them were Exzac Change and Matisse, Brotha Nature, All Star Opera, King Skelle, DJ X2050, DJ Soul 1, SUS, Vernita Avenue and Yung Crown.
Ryan Caraveo undoubtedly had one of the best performances with songs from his latest album, At Least I Tried. His stage presence is very meaningful as he shifts from left to right. Actively encouraging fans and newcomers to sing along. Lots of his choruses are easy to follow but his verses are where he shines. His confidence is fueled by scars and openness through his lyrics.
Karma Knows is an artist from Tri-Cities, Washington who began doing minute videos of himself rapping and showcasing his talents. Over the last few years, he has turned hobby raps into a career with the help of some pals. Justin Frick with the creative throwback videos. AS_1s on the production and DJing. His presence on stage was tranquil but engaging as he shouted chants. Also bringing out a huge rose as props for a slow song. His Hot Air tour is lifting off as we speak
Exzac Change & Matisse are one of Spokane’s favorite duos and they blessed the stage with their comical and spirited vocals. Did they mention pizza? Their performance was hyped up and nothing but smiles on their faces as they performed songs from their Escape Plan EP. Interacting with the crowd and making their mark at Volume 2018. Much more confident this year with a new album on the way.
