Chali 2na's "Concrete Jungle" art opening + DRIP w Cut Chemist @ Mayfair Hotel LA October 4th (Free) + Danny Hastings Exhibit

Posted by Billyjam, October 4, 2019 11:59am | Post a Comment

Opening tonight, Friday October 4th, at LA's Mayfair Hotel will be the Concrete Jungle street art exhibition that is masterminded by Chali 2na (Jurassic 5, Ozomatali, House Of Vibe etc.) who created and curated the unique exhibit. Not just a musician and noted emcee, known worldwide for his distinctive, instantly recognizable, deep baritone lyrical flow, Chali 2na is a true renaissance man whose many titles include actor, voice-artist, painter and mixed media curator.

For his brand new, multi-faceted Concrete Jungle exhibit, that opens tonight at 7pm (free) at the Mayfair Hotel's in-house Regime Contemporary Art Gallery (1256 W 7th St), the multi-talented artist will "transform the hotel's atrium into a jungle, complete with sounds and visuals to compliment Chali's 2na's life-like animal graffiti murals," according to a gallery spokesperson. To secure a place on the guest list go to eventbrite.

Then at 10pm tonight, following the opening reception for his art exhibit, Chali 2na (whose most recent release is his collab with Krafty Kuts; Adventures of a Reluctant Superhero) will join as special guest of the night, his longtime musical partner in J5 and Ozomatali , turntablist/producer extraordinaire Cut Chemist and others at the launch of the new LA monthly party DRIP that will also be held inside the recently revamped Mayfair Hotel inside the library bar at Regime 72.

At 2019 DMC World DJ Championship, DJ Throdown to rep USA following US DMC Finals - A Bittersweet Celebration of Hip-Hop & Life

Posted by Billyjam, September 27, 2019 01:18pm | Post a Comment


At this weekend's anticipated 2019 DMC World DJ Championship battle in London, where the new world champion of the prestigious DJ battle will be decided, DJ Throdown will be proudly representing the USA. [Also representing the US, but in the separate Supremacy Battle, will be DJ As-One.] This follows Throdown's impressive win in Denver earlier this month at the 2019 US DMC Finals. That memorably entertaining evening, that acted as both DJ battle and celebration of hip-hop and life, had a bittersweet edge to it since it became an informal heartfelt tribute to beloved hometown DMC champion DJ B*Money whose tragic death had occurred two weeks earlier and whose funeral took place just two days before the September 8th battle at Temple in Denver.

The 2019 DMC World DJ Championship takes place tomorrow, Saturday September 28th at London’s Islington Assembly Hall (tix/info) and will be live streamed via Facebook between 3pm and 11pm (GWT = 5/8 hours ahead of Eestern/Pacific). There among the non battle entertainment will be showcase sets by legendary 5 x DMC World DJ Champion DJ Craze and  3 x DMC UK Champion JFB. Meanwhile national DJ champions will fly in from all over the globe to compete in three different global DJ battles; The DMC World DJ Final, The Battle For World Supremacy and The DMC World DJ Championship - The Eliminations

DJ Umami, Deeandroid, Lady Ryan, Lady Fingaz, ThatGirl & Pony P of Pioneering Bay Female DJ Peaches Crew Celebrate 10 Years

Posted by Billyjam, September 24, 2019 02:27pm | Post a Comment


This week the pioneering Bay Area all female Peaches Crew, comprised of multi-talented DJs Umami, Deeandroid, Lady Ryan, Lady Fingaz, ThatGirl and Pony P, will celebrate their ten year anniversary with a party/concert on Friday, September 27th at 7th West in Oakland. At the celebratory event, that will be hosted by Aima the Dreamer, the groundbreaking multi-talented six woman turntablist collective promise performances spinning “open format sets with an emphasis on true school hip-hop and #realdjing: deejaying with skills encompassing turntablism and trick-mixing.”

Peaches was founded back in 2009 by then-bartender Masaye "Mama Peach" who initially formed the crew as a part of a weekly DJ party at the Mission District Skylark Bar where they still hold down Thursdays. Crediting “sisterhood” for their inner crew harmony and decade of longevity, the DJs of Peaches Crew are a true representative cross section of women in today's diverse progressive society. As noted by founding member Masaye, the Peaches Crew’s rich diverse membership incorporates, “mothers, business owners, working women, wives, singles, producers, singers; they are Middle Eastern, Asian, Black, White, Muslim; Straight and LGBTQ. Their parties and mixes celebrate music that unites with a homage to the roots of hip-hop and hip-hop DJ’ing.”
