About the DJs

Ripley’s wreckstep raggaphonics slice through genres of street bass, dubstep, Baltimore club music, UK garage, kuduru, hip-hop, jungle, dancehall, breakcore, d’n’b, glitched-out breaks, juke, baile funk, bhangra, and dub, sprouting new life on the dancefloor. Joining Ripley from 8:30 pm -9:30 pm is Ravish Momin, a drummer who has developed an original blend of electro-acoustic beats, and also triggers and manipulates melodies to further blur the lines between composition and improvisation.

Ravish Momin is a percussionist, composer, electronic musician, and educator based in New York City. He has received performance grants from Meet the Composer, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, US Artists International, and Arts International. He has also worked as a sideman with a diverse range of musicians, ranging from pop star Shakira to legendary avant-saxophonist Kalaparusha of the AACM (est. Chicago, 1969). He has led the shape-shifting band Tarana on international stages since 2004, and also works as a music teaching artist with inner-city youth in NYC.


Museum admission is free every Friday night from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. during K2 Friday Nights.
