HiFadility - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
HiFadility
One of the best producers in Boston and winner of Boston's Next Hot Music Producer Competition, HiFadility is a composer, sound designer, producer, and turntablist committed to continuing cultural inspiration through pushing the limits of the hip hop and electronic genre.

Philosophical thought and the sounds of his Quisqueya ancestry have an extreme impact on the way HiFadility hears and creates his self-composed cerebral beats. His creative content has been featured on xxlmag.com, sportsillustrated.cnn.com, and vibe.com. He has performed hundreds of shows, including Southside in Soho, Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge, The Together Boston Festival, and the The International Hip Hop Festival. He has also opened for Common, Flosstradamus, RJD2, Sammy Adams, K-Flay, Treasure Fingers, and The Cool Kids.

HiFadility, which means highest generosity, uses and creates new electronic sounds with a Caribbean, urban, hip-hop, and jazz foundation. His young and diverse demographic promotes ideas of the future, such as consciousness, collaboration, generosity, and growth. He combines old school music with contemporary sound to apply seemingly old concepts to the modern day.

He is influenced by the likes of quintessential hip-hop producers Pete Rock, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, and the jazz greats, Danilo Pérez, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Theolonius Monk, and Duke Ellington. Creating a whimsical and laid back sound that touches the soul, HiFadility’s chill instrumentals tell an amazing story.
