My KUTX: Riders Against The Storm

Posted by on Jan 29, 2016

Chaka and Qi Dada are a married couple and the masterminds behind two Austin hip-hop institutions. There’s Riders Against The Storm, winners of two ‘Band Of The Year’ honors at the Austin Music Awards and a second-place prize from the International Songwriting Competition for their 2013 track “Holy Water.” And then there’s Body Rock ATX, a monthly dance party that celebrates it’s sixth birthday on Friday, February 5 at Empire Control Room. This week on My KUTX, we’re airing an archival guest DJ set from Chaka and Qi Dada featuring a handpicked hour of their favorite songs. Listen in the player at the bottom of the page.
