Meet the influencers who'll be taking over Governors Ball After Dark

  /  06.02.2017

Music festival season is well underway and REVOLT TV won’t just be on the scene at this weekend’s Governors Ball in New York, but will be partnering with Toyota to host our very own #REVOLTHouse at its After Dark party featuring a live performance from Dave East. Until then, get to know the influencers who will be in attendance including Angela Yee, Mack Wilds, Taylor Bennett, and our very own Hannah Rad.

Angela Yee

REVOLT Music Conference 2014 #12

After graduating from Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts in English, Yee utilized the relationships she secured through various internships at MTV, TVT Records, and Wu-Tang Management to become the assistant to the CEO of Wu-Tang Corporation. After realizing she had a knack for marketing, she spent the next five years working, including launching Eminem’s clothing line Shady Limited. She called Peter Rosenberg, the head of Shady Records, when she saw that Sirius Satellite Radio was hiring within their marketing department, as she knew they would soon be launching Shade 45 at Sirius. Rosenberg had other ideas, however, and asked if she would be interested in an on-air position available on the morning show. She later created her own weekly nighttime show, Lip Service, as the only female-hosted program on the station and, after six years left for, Power 105.1 where she currently cohosts The Breakfast Club.

Mack Wilds

Hailing from Staten Island, N.Y., Mack Wilds made his TV debut at the age of 15 in Spike Lee’s Miracle’s Boys and wowed audiences as Michael Lee on HBO’s critically acclaimed drama series, The Wire. For the next five years, he played a teenage heartthrob on 90210, but little did his fans know, he was secretly recording music the entire time. In 2008, he met legendary producer Salaam Remi and the two worked together to complete Mack’s debut album New York: A Love Story which earned him a 2014 Grammy Award for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Now, Mack Wilds is currently working on his sophomore efforts with two of the industry’s most prolific producers of the ‘90s, Teddy Riley and Scott Storch. Aside from working on his second EP, Mack will be starring in two series’ for network television series: NBC’s Shots Fired and VH1’s The Breaks.

Taylor Bennett

Taylor Bennett is a 21-year-old independent artist from Chicago, Illinois. The younger brother of Chance The Rapper is changing the game with his lyrical style, flow and heart pounding live shows. Bennett’s rise has been meteoric, selling out shows all over Chicago and being featured on the cover of The Chicago Reader as “The next up in Chicago.” Bennett has opened for Vic Mensa, Nas, YG & Curren$y. Premiering his recent project “Broad Shoulders” with Rolling Stone, Bennett said, “We’re really trying to build our own industry.”

Hannah Rad

Hannah Rad is an NYC-based on-air talent, radio host, DJ and producer. Hannah can be seen on REVOLT TV (weekdays) and also serves as producer and host of REVOLT’s electronic show, LVTR (Saturdays 11pm ET).
