About From the Top
We're letting our freak flag wave high in this next edition of From the Top! Immerse yourself in an Afro-futuristic world where black people make it to the future, the mothership is coming to take us to Wakanda, and the now is surreal af.

Hosted by Greg "King Rem" Howard & Chinisha
From the Top takes music production out of the studio and onto the stage here at Caveat, featuring live demos from musicians, conversations with experts, drinking games, and a lot more. Each month, we break down a musical element, sound, or song, showing the audience how it was created and its influence outside of music. The series is an intimate look at an element, region, or musical sound that serves a prominent role in the evolution of black music and its influence on contemporary pop culture. From blues & soul to r&b, The Minneapolis Sound to hip-hop, New Jack Swing, rap, and beyond, From the Top explores the spaces, technology, economics, and people that have built the foundations for much of contemporary popular music.
