We just helped release EarDrUmz new single, “Brown Paper Bags”. Out of know where the Ohana, HYPOETICAL sends me his newest beatscape, “Swing Shift”. Wowzers. I been saying, WE MAKE MUSIC. Hypo, encompasses the LS sound, samples, drums, and original. Have a listen and download the album in the link on soundcloud. Lets keep the vibes moving. Don’t Sleep.
INERTiA 10 is finally here, time to get down and funky to some breaks. Im hyped to play some music and let the B-Boys & B-Girls git down. We got a Black Book Battle hosted by Truestory Textstiles. Also a Full Contact Kendama Battle hosted by HNL Kendama. A grip of free prizes to bless the people who decided to support us for the 10th INERTiA. Promise to be fun if you let it get into you soul. Don’t Sleep.
Check out his promo for INERTiA 4, the footy is from INERTiA 3 at UH Dance rooms. I can remember it like yesterday, so much fun. Mox battled Oliver Twist in the MC battle final. I think the Ala Wai Swim Team won the teams. Duo Rockwell won the footwork and tops battle. I love Hip-Hop!
ECMassive is and was: Kapuni aka EP/IG88, Melvin aka Sentric, Ka’ala aka Lance Longshot, Kavet aka the Catalyst/K-Netic, Juando aka DJ BM13. We made one cassette tape, then Ka’ala & Sentric moved to Wash St. So me and EP created IVUnit. This was one of the many songs we made and released in 2000 on Narcoleptic Symposium. Livicated to EP/IG88.
The longest running Hip-hop event is about to be on sabbatical. DJ Bone has been putting it down for years now and his event, Hip-Hop at the Trops has now outlived the venue, The Trops! So Now we might see Hip-Hop at the Zoo? Nah. Nuff Respect to all who supported, performers, artists, and the peoples. Don’t sleep.
After qualifying for Beatroot 2011/12 Grand Championships, Sentric is going to be releasing all his beats he used for the battle. The CD is out now and we hope to have a few to add to our on-line store, www.eleshawaii.com
It was a Great night! That might be an understatement. I realized that there is an upper crust of Underground Hip-Hop Artists that transcends, being good. And finally seeing Eligh solo show solidifies what i been thinking all along.
Sirenz, opened up with a 3 song quick fast. I really dig his stuff, straight spit fire.
Then, SAMPLE enter the stage and rocked a ill set with Pro, Parlous, Devon, & Bles’.
Bad Ass Bart & DJ Packo!
DJ Bumble Bee & DJ Packo. Packo could arguably the best DJ in Hawaii. From turntablism to mixing to being able to spin all genres, kid is too good. Nuff Said.
The Monarx, ripped the stage for their last performance of the year, with anticipation of their album dropping at the end of 2011.
The Grey Crow, came on stage and straight murdered it. He just bummed rushed the stage with his chop, chop, chop. To see, hear, and feel words just flying over my head made me realize that other rappers just rap fast. Eligh, that is his style, he doesn’t rap fast just because its trendy or since everyone is doing it. He has done it, been doing it, and does it the best.
With The Grouch living on Maui, on occasion he makes it to Oahu. This time he brought Eligh!
Of course they had to rock a few G & E songs in between sets. EPIC!
Mahalo to Eligh, DJ Fresh, & The Grouch for blessing us with their presence. Bart and SAMPLE always being family. Monarx & Sirenz for that good music. Most of all the people that supported Hawaii & Underground Hip-Hop. Don’t Sleep.
One of the most Legendary Hip-Hop groups EVER! In the gambit of Hip-Hop groups these guys are or possibly be the Pinnacle of Hip-Hop! Michael Rapaport, actor and producer, took the liberty to document the Tribe! If you are one of the few in the know, you might of caught the leak on the internet (cough) and if you are not, gonna have to wait till it is shown at some artsty fartsy film festival that does not have any inkling on how important ATCQ is!
