Producer Kenny Beats returned to Central Park for a show to benefit SummerStage. He brought a varied lineup of friends for D.O.T.S. (“Don’t Overthink Shit”) live.

 

First up was Vicky Nguyen aka Vicky Farewell, a classically-trained pianist who now writes R&B and soul-tinged pop songs that she sings and plays on keys.

 

Next was the young trio julie, whose grungy, shoegazy, art rock reminded me a little of early Sonic Youth.

 

Charismatic British rapper slowthai then performed, even jumping down into the crowd for a song.

 

Another big draw, rapper Isaiah Rashad followed with an electrifying set.

 

Finally, Kenny Beats himself took to the stage with a fun DJ set that the crowd ate up. Two special unannounced guests also joined in on the fun. Mark Bowen of IDLES (whose album Crawler Beats produced) sang his take on Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” and rapper Smino did a song as well. Lastly, Beats thanked the crowd for supporting his work and ended with a track off his own album LOUIE.
