Nocando touring w/ Busdriver & others, released a new song w/ Dam-Funk who’s also touring (dates & stream)

by Andrew Sacher


LA rapper Nocando, who hosts the Low End Theory hip hop night and founded the Hellfyre Club label, is releasing a new album, Jimmy the Burnout, on March 18 via his own label, and he’s just released a single from it, “Lucid Dream.” The track sees Nocando impressively flowing over a funky Dam-Funk beat, and singer Piatra Hawkins flirts with indie-R&B on the airy chorus. It’s a solid track, and can be streamed below.

Nocando is currently on the road for the Hellfyre Club-presented ‘Dorner vs Tookie’ tour which also includes Busdriver, Open Mike Eagle and Milo. That tour hits NYC on March 6 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets are available. List of all dates and tour flyer below.

Dam-Funk has a few upcoming dates too, including a free NYC show happening on March 7 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Maya Vik, Gordon Voidwell and DJ Thanksgiving Brown. Like all BKNB shows, it’s no cost to enter and watch the music, and there’s also tons of not-free food, drinks, shopping, and games. All of his dates are listed below too.

Listen to “Lucid Dream,” with both lists of tour dates, below…
