Rhea Dally graced our 2Famous.TV Radio show on Friday for an interview and the kind of performance we weren’t expecting.
She was born and raised in Lebanon but currently resides in South Africa where she is making more chiptune/8-bit connections and collaborations. Chiptune she says, is a type of electronic music made from old gaming consoles. In fact she requires hardly any equipment to produce super fun, super dancey music that makes the floor feel like a videogame world.
Wearing a pixelated Space Invaders hoodie, Dally only had to stand up from the bar and walk onto the stage to get ready. She began the song with her head down and fingers moving fast and stayed that way for the whole performance, all the while creating widly upbeat dance music. “I played video games my whole life like Mario Cart, Space Invaders, and RPG games like World of Warcraft,” she said and progressed into making music inspired by her love of the games.
Here’s Rhea Dally performing one of her own songs at Radio Beirut:

– Catch the show tonight so he doesn’t have to
“We’ll be stage diving and shit, so hopefully I won’t break my knee or neck, I don’t want to die. Ok, If I could choose to die I’d rather die on stage then somewhere else…” Rapper Arif told 2famous.TV, as we discussed being a local superstar, what festivals like HOVE mean to Norwegian artists and what we should expect from his show tonight.
– The kids went mental!
Some of the artists at the Hove festival OWNED the audience, and Bastille was definitely one of the highlights. With complete crowd control they moved thousands of Norwegian teenagers to synchronized madness. It was one of those experiences that will live for ever on hundreds of Instagram accounts. (Most of the kids here says that they don’t remember the festival from day to day). [more]
HOVE goes hardcore when L.A. rapper hits the stage
Earl Sweatshirt, who hails from my hometown adjacent city of Los Angeles (well, as you’ll see in the video, even if L.A. is the easiest point of reference on the international scene, if you grew up in the ‘burbs, never tell people who are actually from L.A. that you’re from there, because they will call your Orange County ass out so fast), shook the AMFI stage with some hard-...

As the 2famous crew sat on the beach, contemplating life and looking out onto the horizon, distant tribal beats were calling our names. We had to get to where ever that music was coming from. The 20-minute journey from the beach to the stage was playing was dramatic…we were walking fast in fear that The Busy Twist... [more]
