With 2012’s In The Making, Milwaukee rapper/musician/video director Kellen “Klassik” Abston announced himself as one of the city’s most unique and musically restless acts. Equal parts jazzy, spacey, and soulful, songs like “Running 2” and “Light” (the latter of which appeared on 2013’s YRP album) effortlessly skirt above the surface like a space-age hovercraft, occasionally touching down on any number of styles and influences. After a relatively quiet 2014, Klassik is hitting the ground running in 2015 with four EPs that will eventually lead to a new album this spring. Tonight’s show celebrates the release of the first of those EPs, Winter. El-Shareef, Damir Balo, and Blizz McFly And Great Music open.
