Destructo Announces Renegade Tour, Drops 'Catching Plays' With Pusha-T, Starrah & Wax Motif
HARD head Gary Richards, aka Destructo, has a reputation for putting together some of the best bills in dance music. Whether it's Holy Ship, HARD Summer, or a Miami Music Week showcase, you can bet he's packing big guns.
It's no different for his own headlining US tour. The 18-date show stopper features appearances by D.R.A.M., E-40, iLoveMakonnen, AC Slater, Felix Da Housecat, Drezo, Hotel Garuda, Granz, Josh Pan, Vindata, Dateless, and Sita Abellan. It sounds more like a touring festival than a series of club parties, but in reality, three guests will make it to each show. Check the official dates below to see who's coming to your town.
Regardless of lineup, each night will be a mash up of hip-hop and house mentalities. Destructo has placed himself squarely at the intersection of both, a nice place for a dude from Los Angeles to exist, and his G-house sensibilities continue to shine on his latest single, “Catching Plays” featuring vocals from Pusha T, a boss hook from Starrah, and additional productions from Wax Motif. Expect this kind of dark bass and menacing attitude all over the Renegade stage. Tickets are on sale now.
