The Risen from the Ashes family are celebrating twelve years of repping the ATL and the south in the breaking world. Bringing it back to the roots with no prelims, no intermission, just music and a party. Can't stop, won't stop.
AlphaTrion — Risen from the Ashes' own DJ has been spinning funk, hip hop and groove heavy tracks for dancers across the country since 2004 and will be kicking the night off with a set of heavy funk classics and new releases from some of the top labels in funk & soul.
The Sixteen Bars Hip-Hop Orchestra — ATL's premier hip hop cover act, having recently covered Nas' Illmatic in its entirety, greatest hits from 2Pac and Gravediggaz along with a host of other classics, will ...be bringing a mix of some of their favorite covers along with a new batch of funk and hip hop tracks learned especially for this event.
DJ Skeme Richards (Official Fan Page) (All vinyl set) — Skeme Richards, hailing from Philly, is known within a large circle of Funk & Soul aficionado’s, DJ’s, vinyl purists and heavyweight collectors, artists and record labels and has toured playing 7” vinyl during some of the most unique and successful nights across the globe with his Butta 45’s party. Over the years, the self proclaimed “Nostalgia King” has built his brand as a “tastemaker” of sorts and has shared stages with some of the best DJ’s and performers internationally including Japan’s DJ Muro, Giles Peterson, De La Soul, DJ Spinna, Florian Keller, DJ Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5), Daisuke Kuroda, Ge-Ology, DJ Mr. Thing, The Roots and more.

Toprock Cypher Champ: There will be secret judges picking the dancer with the best toprock of the night. No official start time, no official cypher. If you want it, you just gotta go off all night. We’ll be announcing the prize closer to the event; come for the party, not the prize.
More events and celebrations to be announced. Hoping to fill the week and weekend with opportunities for everyone to celebrate the culture, connect with our community and enjoy the city of Atlanta that RftA calls home.
