freshDark Festival starring Shafiq Husayn and OSHUN on June 20th, 2015 in Houston, Texas at Last Concert Cafe.
freshDark intends to create an environment that caters to the exposure and appreciation of emerging artists whose styles explore the fusions of Electronica, Funk, Jazz, Broken Beat, Soul, Reggae, Hip Hop, Future Sounds in an abstract and organic fashion. We highlight mastery of instrumentation and audio equipment, premier visual artists, and culturally relevant entrepreneurs.
The concept of 'freshDark' refers to the exact moment in time relative to ones specific space in which the day turns to night. The point where the Sun no longer offers its direct energy; but by way of the moon.
The curators of freshDark have sought out to bring this emerging culture of audible excellence to a bigger stage, initiating an annual festival which will bring together a conglomerate of local and international artists who specialize in audibly abstract iterations.
