Soohan kicked off his Made in Baltimore Tour last Thursday at Kung Fu Necktie.

Why is Made in Baltimore kicking off in Philly? Well, as it so happens, Soohan is a Philadelphian who has found himself in Baltimore recently. He produced the album – with the same name as the tour – in Baltimore.

Soohan is not your typical DJ playing a bunch of tracks produced by others with big build ups and heavy bass drops. Soohan’s first tour will be small, just a few dates in the Northeast. But it will expose listeners to what he describes as a heady mix of hip-hop and world beats, with the nostalgic sounds of the ’90s sampled to add familiarity to his grooves.

Since the album was released in mid December, it has had nearly 250,000 plays and downloads.

The tour will also feature artists from beyond the world of electronic music. The sets in all locations will also include other artists – Raf Mvta from Connecticut and Philadelphian Elle Paisley live-painted at the Kung Fu Necktie show.

The evening also featured producer Cheatcode, who modestly stated, “The mix may not be tight but the sound is right.”

He was also joined by beatboxer Honeycomb. Together, they performed through the night with Cheatcode’s all original track productions.
