NIGHTMARKET

I’m sure every company says they have the best fans, not us, we got the best Family. The gambit on who rides with us is super random and that makes it even cooler. Here’s a few flicks of the fam rocking the new LS New Era Fitted. So much love. There might be sizes left go to our shop.lightsleepers.net  Don’t Sleep & See you at Art & Flea.

A New Era…

LS_NE_grid
“Hard as F*#k” is what was told to me by one homie. An yes, these are H.A.F. can’t front. So many times i was temped to just give up and do the LS Script on another brand of hat or give in to making it a snapback first. But my gut was to believe that we eventually would land a New Era Fitted and through some really solid friends my dream became a reality. For some brands this would be so minor, like, “oh wow you made one new era cap, big deal?” We all KILLER, no FILLER, brah. Like a MC we only come with rich content, abstractions, word play, and punches, NO FILLER. So to all the LS heads that share our sentiment, Mahalos for your support. Don’t Sleep.

We will be releasing these fits at Honolulu Nightmarket, Sat 16 & Online at Midnite for all the “Sleepers” world wide.

MAUI WOWEE


First heard this banger on Soundcloud, just caught wind of the video. Boogaloo Buzz One is one of the dopest MC from Hawaii paired with one of the grimiest, JusOneOh. Check the new video and expect a full album from the Ohana. Don’t Sleep.

LS Script New Era Fitted

LS_NewEra_Pre

Road to SDCC & LET

Here is a few random photos of our journey to San Diego Comic Con & Low End Theory L.A. Fun times were had and one sad time (Walking Dead), yet we did our thing and met so many new people. Always a good time with LS at SDCC & LET, let begin…
sdcc01

Gotta find out whats the story behind this.

sdcc02

Haven’t flew Delta in a long time, i don’t know about other planes but our plane was cramp and stuffy.  It makes you pay for an upgrade on foot space.

sdcc03

Long hallways makes for dramatic shots. Shots fired.

sdcc04

Glad to be in the City of Angels.  Couldn’t live in L.A. but always down to ride.

sdcc05

First stop, the Krispy Kremery, where we got our donuts on and we took the browns to the superbowl.

sdcc06

Took a quick sesh at Stoner Park.  Just pushing around i could feel myself getting better…or it could of been the super smooth ground and ultra fun manny pads.  Hawaii get with the program, STOP MAKING X-GAMES PARK, aint nobody got time for 10 ft trannys and bowls.

sdcc07

Made a quick stop to scoop up Lofa at the Silent Stage Kompound.  Then off to SD to set up our booth with, Hyperactive Monkey.

sdcc08

There is only one way to Comic Con, well actually there are 2 ways, but the only way is the Lofa way.  If you want to fully experience SDCC then you gotta roll with us, but its not for the weak.  The other way is similar to an old man waking up for coffee at McD’s….We set up the booth and i off back to LA for Low End.

sdcc09

The Airliner is a dope spot tucked in between random shops.  You can drive right by it if you weren’t checking for it.   The sound is amazing.  The bass is in your guts and the vocals still sound crispy.  Respect to Daddy Kev and the LET fam.

sdcc10

Daddy Kev set it off first.  I love what they have done for the beat movement, or whatever you call it.  As progressive as it is they still allow space for the rawness of an all vinyl set.

sdcc11

Right before i played my first record i explained to the crowd that i will be playing all vinyl, all L.A. Underground & Indy Hip-Hop, and i hope you can just enjoy and vibe out.

sdcc12

With only a 30 minute set i had to just bang from record to record.  I messed up a few times by playing the instrumental and not the vocals.

sdcc13

The visuals were dope, but kept blinding me at certain points making it hard to focus in on the mix.  I should of took more time at sound check to get comfortable with the set up.

sdcc14

Overall it was awesome.  I was realy iffy on how L.A. was gonna receive an all L.A. set.  I know it sounds weird but the state of music today and being in Hawaii i don’t know what the people like.  I know what i think is dope, but is it the same sentiment by the people?

sdcc15

Safe to say, judging by the amount of love and props i was getting from people after my set, there is still people that love good music.  That love gritty and real feel music.  From the new beat to the beats that we grew up with.  Real people who like feel music.  OPIO from the Legendary Souls of Mischief was the headliner and he killed it.  Mahalo Low End Theory, ill see you next year…then i had to drive back to SD at 2am (monster, sour patch kids, and 80s love jams).

sdcc16

The rest is a blur…i did get to watch one of my favorite artists ever, MEAR ONE paint live.  His are is so influential in Hip-hop and politics in the 90′s even today.

sdcc17

sdcc18

sdcc19

I don’t know why i didn’t take more photos of the Cos Players, but i did get MegaMan, but wasn’t MegaMan a girl….no wait that was Metroid.

sdcc20

MEAR ONE.

sdcc21

Mor MEAR ONE!

sdcc22

Look a photo of our booth.  Like i said after Weds, the rest of the trip was a blur.  I wanna give my self props on the new pvc shirt and had stands.  Ok Pau.  Much love to HYPERACTIVE MONKEY!

sdcc23

FREEDOM FOR HUMANITY.  Comic Con & Low End Theory over was epic.  So epic Ratchet Rey, one of our homies that came up to his first Con, almost died of some rat flu.  I got my foot bit by zombies, but survived.  This is just a few things that went down to make it EPIC!  MAHALO NUI LOA to Hyperactive Monkey, Hyper Will, Daddy Kev & the Low End Theory, DJ Nobody, Jon & Mel from Fully Laced, DJ Ratchet Rey, All the new, old, and OG ohana for LS.  God Bless us all.  Don’t Sleep.

 

 

LOW END THEORY

LET_2

Today on my born day i am blessed to be spinning at the Low End Theory in Los Angeles.  If you’re in LA or know anyone that is and love LA Underground / Independent Hip-Hop tell me to roll thorough to The Airliner.  I will be jumping on at 10:30pm and with a thick line up of Opio, KID606, Taurus Scott, Dubstrong, and Residents, Daddy Kev, Nobody, & Nocando. Don’t Sleep.

SDCC: H.A.M. x LS

SDCC_HAMxLS

Majority of life’s opportunities are made, even with “luck” or “chance” you have to have made the step to get in position to be granted that “luck”.  We are blessed to be with HyperActive Monkey at the 2014 Comic Con in San Diego, Booth #5640.  Don’t Sleep.
