This past Friday, October 14th, Destructo’s Renegade Tour landed at the Avalon Hollywood dance floor for a night fueled by G-House and Hip-Hop. The night took an unexpected turn as the bill featured E-40 and Vindata yet AC Slater, Wax Motif, Ty Dolla Sign, and Too Short found their way into the set to stir the party up a bit. From throwbacks like E-40’s “Tell Me When To Go” to the Destructo x Wax Motif collab, “Catching Plays”, it was like stepping into the Power 106 edition of  2003 all over again with a modern twist.

This song is their debut piece off their collaborative project, FEEL, which was accompanied with a hilarious music video. “Turn My Music Up” is a groovy and quirky ride through the murky bass of deep house and stylistic lyrics of hip hop.
