RECAP: Red Bull Sound Select Presents - Bilal, Thurz & Oddience at The Echo

Red Bull’s famed Sound Select series made its way to the City of Angels last night and showcased a ton of talent as Bilal, Thurz and Oddience hit the stage at the landmark club, The Echo. We were on hand to experience the tremendous line up and vibed out to all of the eclectic and dynamic sounds from last night. Hit the jump to check out all of the footage.


Purveyors of “wave rap”, Oddience, took the stage first and captured the crowd with their unique sound, weaving through their set with distinct rhythms that had all in attendance locked in on the grooves and rhymes.

Next up was Inglewood-bred emcee extraordinaire, Thurz, blessing the crowd with cuts from his lauded “Designer EP”, as well as his own homecooked version of Imagine Dragons’ hit, “Radioactive”.  Truly, this set was a live act that music fans should treat as a ‘must-see’.

Closing out the night was master of falsetto and soulful maven, Bilal. Backed by a compelling live band to help fuel his charismatic set, Bilal showcased tracks from his forthcoming album, “In Another Life”, due out next week.

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
