Red The Bully.

Madison-based hip-hop artist Red The Bully has tried on a variety of styles in his approach to both rapping and the sorts of songwriting/production modes he'll pair with his vocals. And so far this works for Red, real name Andrew Jackson. He's engaging in the kind of experimentation that suits a young but undoubtedly skilled MC, from the gritty swagger of "From The Core" and "Spartans” to the woozy R&B of "Easy Does It." Another of the many one-off tracks he's released over the past few years, "Hello," finds him rapping in quick triplet phrases to enhance the gradual buildup of the verses—a detail that shows you his technical ability, but also his ear for the song as a whole. I've also seen Jackson play fiercely present and amped-up live sets, and he'll be using his upcoming performances to roll out some new material. He says listeners can expect "chill but upbeat instrumentals, and crazy lyrics surrounded by layers and really nice melodies." He shares the bill here with Chicago rapper Sage The 64th Wonder and Madison MC Keyz. —Scott Gordon
