Metalloid Lab Productions is proud to present the launch party for D.N.A -the new collaborative album between their in-house producer, Arsenic and the gifted MC, YoungstaCPT.

Both Arsenic and Youngsta raised themselves on hip hop and it has, as a result, become entrenched in their D.N.A. At it’s core, the album pays homage to genuine hip hop that remains true to it’s purpose and has been untainted by commercial interests. With August 2013 marking the 40 year anniversary of this incredible genre, there is no better time for the release of this sincere celebration of hip hop.

The night will also act as the official launch of our small sound and music company, Metalloid Lab Productions. We will therefore be showcasing some of the amazing young artists that we are currently working with.

Date: 29 August 2013
Venue: Ragazzi Live Bar (7 Loop Street, Cape Town)
Time: 8:30pm – 1am
Cover Charge: R30
