The Performance

Witness a breathtaking journey that pleases the ears and the eyes as Kemet the Phantom performs the entirety of his latest album, Electric Park with DJ Skeme. The performance will also feature performances by Voler: Theives of Flight, Squeezebox as well as immersive lighting and audio by Light.Sound.Focus and Alpha Audio Productions.


The Music

Through the lens of the 32-year-old rap artists' upbringing from birth to present day in Kansas City, each song represents eight topics: SEDUCTION, POWER, VICE, DEATH, EUPHORIA, LUST, PRIDE, CHANGE . With songs like "Rollin' Down Paseo", Kemet explores the nostalgia and confusion of emotions that fester as the future of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, formally known as The Paseo, is determined by a vote.

Electric Park was co-produced by Kemet and the legendary producer and sound designer, Leonard Dstroy.


The Artwork

Although mostly known for his musical offerings, The Electric Park album also serves as a debut for Kemet the Phantom as a visual artist. For the first time, he’s designed a color palette to accompany not only the album artwork, but also the lighting that will drench the performance area.

The City

The Electric Park Experience was inspired by Kansas City. In celebration of 816 Day, we encouraged the city’s skyline to light up in the Electric Park colors.
