State” which is a major staple in the Salt Lake rap scene. Branching
out as a solo artist regionally and nationally, Dusk is known for his
very energetic live shows and a trademarked raspy flow that matches up
with gritty heavy hitting beats. Dusk is also knows as a very talented
visual artist, painting canvases, murals, and illustrating countless
hip hop flyers which have become a staple of salt lake streets. Dusk
has shared the stage with just about every major hip hop act that you
can name, a few favorites, The Blue Scholars, Mac Lethal, Louis Logic,
Lyrics born, And many many more.

Born in Puerto Rico to Dominican parents, Laylo is the co-founder of Liberation Lounge (NYC) and has ignited dance floors from Berlin to Brazil. Sake One is among the most respected DJs from the Bay Area (CA) ever, and in 2008, Fania released his Fania Live 03 mixed CD worldwide.
