Trap stars Ookay and Lookas performed at Grand Central on Oct. 10, bringing a mixture of hip-hop and EDM to the Miami scene. The show was sponsored by Crown Nightlife and New Movement Miami.
All the way from San Diego Calif., Ookay has exploded into the music scene with hits like Congrorock’s “Bless Di Nation Ft. Sean Paul” and Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo’s “Boneless,” as well as his single “Bouncer” produced with Showtek. The young artist even teamed up with Diplo to remix Avicii’s “You Make Me,” and his recent remix of “Kanye” by the Chainsmokers layers his signature mix of dance music and hip-hop pop vocals.
Lookas on the other hand is from Miami and is known for his remixes of Yellow Claw’s “Shotgun,” DVBBS and Borgeous ” Tsunami,” and Kaskade’s “Room for Happiness.” His Facebook bio says, ” I started making music in my bedroom. I like music that sounds massive.” Combined, the two brought a lively mixture of west coast hip-hop trap with east coast dance vibes and left the crowd begging for more.
