Birthed on Cinco De Mayo, the Traptastic collective hosted their first party at Pancho & Luigis located on Colley Avenue in Norfolk, Va. The party that gained them the most recognition in the Norfolk art district scene and make 2015 summer memorable for so many of the frequent art district goers would however be the first official Traptastic which was held in early July at local night club Work Release. This event was the start of something special that we had never seen before in the area intertwining different cultures and creating a atmosphere where anyone can come be themselves and have fun featuring performances from Opal and Norfolk native Young Crazy, also featured were amazing DJ sets from Fake Uzumi, DJ Davey Wreck and the birth unknown DJ Negro Libre. With his face covered in a mask he shreded the set playing all of the hottest trap songs such as march maddness and traphouse 3 then transitioning into raging songs like 3500 and LPFJ2 then even taking it back some with some vintage college dropout Kanye West tracks. We had a chance to catch up with the Traptastic collective recently and get to know founders Rod & Negro Libre more and also get some footage of their most recent Traptastic event “Traptober” a Halloween party at The Parlor On Granby. watch the interview below.
