There was 'No Chill' at Vic Mensa's Beats on the Banks performance

Vic Mensa certainly wasn't "down on his luck" at last night's electrifying Beats on the Banks performance hosted by the Rutgers University Programming Association. The 22-year-old hip-hop artist received a lot of positive reactions during his performance at the Rutgers College Avenue Gymnasium, although his predecessors on the stage had some mixed reviews and feedback from students. The doors opened at 7 p.m. and students walked into a mix of mash-ups, techno and house music under the performance of Daniel Boutoussov, a School of the Arts and Sciences junior, performing under his DJ name, "Chayu." Boutoussov was highly energetic and eagerly interacted with the crowd during his time on stage.  Although about one-third of the total crowd arrived in time for Boutoussov’s performance, the students in attendance seemed to be enjoying his music and level of interaction. Kevin Lopez, a School of Engineering junior, was impressed with Boutoussov's performance. “The opening performance was great, I liked the diversity in genres.” Lopez said.
