This local trio—comprised of Okword, Vessel and Black Morris—has birthed an angry, hip-hop-dance-party sound that explodes in your face. Producer/DJ Black Morris expertly compressed bits and pieces of two full-length albums into a vicious 25-minute set. Okword got face to face with the crowd and shot out his spitfire lyrics. Vessel’s expansive energy got the crowd super-hyped during “Fake the Love,” the title track to their 2011 full-length album. Heavy crowd participation climaxed with the closing song, “Disgusting Beauty,” as people shouted, “Rip off that mask from your face, your beauty is so disgusting!” ★★★☆☆
