Who Are We?
Slapdash, LLC was founded and launched in 2009 by longtime friends Derail “Cain McCoy” Hampton & Robert “Octavion X” Markum.
These two dudes from Richmond, Virginia came together for a purpose. To create and enhance the RVA Hip-Hop music scene. Tired of seeing the detrition and lack of Hip-Hop in music venues in Richmond, they set out to get Hip-Hop back in these venues and reestablish a scene. In 2011, Slapdash would truly make its mark in Richmond lore by creating the Summer music, arts and culture event, Epic Fest. Since then Epic Fest has brought both established names and rising stars to Richmond, Virginia, showcasing the city as a whole.
Slapdash believes you must embrace community for growth. They have worked closely with Richmond publications RVA Mag and Style Weekly as well as had sponsorship’s with Kulture, West Coast Kix, Coors Light, Crown Royal, and Zing Vodka. From moving the inventory out of the way and throwing shows inside of the old Rumors on North Harrison, to the new Richmond tradition of “Epic Fest”, to the new venture of management, Slapdash continues to make you wonder!
