Throughout December, Red Bull Radio will be hosting Hollerboard Redux 2.0, a series of performances featuring an impressive lineup of DJs. The Hollerboard was a late-2000s message board that united an underground collective of selectors, many of whom went on to become critically-acclaimed pros.

Tastemakers like A-Trak, Louisahhh, Jubilee, and YehMe2, plus current Twitch streaming favorite Four Color Zack, are on the lineup. Fool’s Gold Records co-founder Nick Catchdubs will be spinning, as will  OG indie DJ trendsetters Dances With White Girls and Cosmo Baker. Dirty South Joe and Lowbudget, two Philadelphia DJs who many cite as vital to the roots of the 2010s underground-to-mainstream evolution, are performing as well.

The schedule is as follows, and DJ sets will be posted on Red Bull Radio’s Mixcloud.

12/15 – Louisahhh @ 6AM PST + Dances With White Girls @ 11AM PST
12/16 – Jubilee @ 6AM PST + Nick Catchdubs @ 11 AM PST
12/17 – Dirty South Joe @ 6AM PST + Lowbudget @ 11AM PST
