Ahead of his movie motel event at RBMF LA, the Illegal Civilization founder and Mid90s producer shares some of his favorite tracks.
With Red Bull Music Festival in LA coming up, we’re shining a light on the creative forces that are making waves in the city. As such, Illegal Civilization is undoubtedly one of the hottest collectives around. Steered by founder Mikey Alfred’s tenacious entrepreneurial spirit, and aided by clutch connections with the likes of Frank Ocean and Tyler, the Creator, the brand has blossomed into a full-fledged media company. Under Illegal Civ, the young filmmaker — now 23 years old — has produced branded videos, music videos and a short film starring the late Mac Miller. He also earned co-production credits on Jonah Hill’s directorial debut, Mid90s. On February 16, Alfred and his crew will present a day-long event at the 1950s Pink Motel in Sun Valley as part of the Red Bull Music Festival Los Angeles, featuring Tierra Whack, Show Me the Body, Tommy Genesis and more. Ahead of the event, Mikey Alfred shares a mixtape of songs he’s currently into.
