Dai Burger, Uniiqu3

Dai Burger's 2017 debut album, Soft Serve, finds the Queens-based rapper spitting playful and defiant verses and hooks over beats that glow with skittery hi-hats and highlighter-hued synth patches. On tracks like "Tatted Up," "Shake 'N Bake," and "Rosé," Dai Burger starts with the simple pleasures in life but turns them into joyful affirmations of identity and self-love: "I'm too busy getting to the chicken / I'm the template, the blueprint is written." The cheeky riffs on food and drink come at you a mile a minute, but behind them is a deft balance of grit and euphoria. Dai Burger shares the bill here with Newark, New Jersey MC/producer Uniiqu3, whose work should round out this Queer Pressure-presented show with a wallop of brash, club-oriented beats. —Scott Gordon
