Benefit v.16 / InLiquid Art & Design –

We were thrilled to be a part of and bring Laurent and MïxT BeatZ’s cool ‘vibing’ beats to support InLiquid Benefit v.16 held in the Icebox Project Space at the Crane Arts Building on Saturday, February 6.

The Benefit, a major annual fundraiser to support InLiquid ( and its collective of local visual artists, dominated the art scene and social landscape on this cold winter evening. This major event is a main art destination and social happening for the city’s thriving art scene. Hundreds of guests – that included collectors, art lovers, artists, professionals – attended the event and energized the beautiful artwork -filled Icebox space.

LB and MïxT BeatZ ( played a mix of original compositions and remix of electro house, EDM, Jazz, funk, enhanced with LIVE sax and percussion, cool ‘back beats’ and driving rhythms.

“It’s such a great event supporting an amazing cause. I had a great time, and, performing in such a beautiful space, surrounded by a community of artists and art lovers is a very special and inspiring experience”. LB
