Meet Pink Room Project

Meet Pink Room Project

The VICE Magazine Podcast is your definitive guide to enlightening information. Our second annual Music Issue, a collaboration with our music site, Noisey, came out last week. In the issue, Lawrence Burney, a staff writer at Noisey, writes about his trip to Louisiana to hang out with members of Pink Room Project, a young collective pushing the musical legacy of New Orleans into the future. The collective, also known as the Pink, was founded by New Orleans natives Keith Cavalier, a 29-year-old producer known as Lil Jodeci, and Brandon Ares, a 25-year-old rapper. They host popular parties and DJ nights that feature a range of genres, from bounce to rap to house music. Lil Jodeci, Ares, and a few other members of the collective recently came by our Brooklyn office to chat with Lawrence about how the collective started, what motivates them, and the impact of Hurricane Katrina.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
