Honeydrip’s Psychotropical is an homage to dub, reggae, and dancehall, while keeping her signature bassy dancefloor sound. Psychotropic is any drug that affects behavior, mood, thoughts, or perception, and this debut live set from Honeydrip, featuring vocalist King Shadrock and A/V wizard Emma Forgues, is meant to evoke exactly that. The visual experience conceived by Emma will include humanoid shapes created from 3D scans of Honeydrip and King Shadrock's bodies and psychedelic landscapes inspired by nature, velvet, latex, honey, and glass. With thought-provoking Rastafarian themes and liquid sound design, this deep tropical performance will take you through a range of emotions and movements.
DJ and producer Honeydrip, reggae singer King Shadrock, and digital artist Emma Forgues unite for an explosive mind-bending set.
With this A/V performance, Honeydrip and King Shadrock renewed their collaboration which kicked off in 2021 with the track "Brand New Flava", appearing on the Anti-Ego EP.
