    atypicalLIVING Covers… The (last) Next Movement 

    This edition of atypicalLIVING Covers… takes a look at the final Next Movement at Next Door.

    For the past year, Jake “The Snake” Miyasato has been turning the downtown filmhouse into the mecca for Chinatown hipsters to get their monthly fix of fashion, music, and art.  This event, which sprang forth from Jake’s earlier efforts on the UH-Manoa campus, quickly became the destination for Hawaii’s social elite to see and be seen.  And, we’re sad to see it go.  But, it didn’t go down with a whimper.

    The genuineHI crew cranked back and unleashed the magic one last time on the hipsters and socialites alike.  The room began to shake with the sounds of DJ Mr. Nick and DJ Fame.  Then the roof got blown off by the sonic fury of the combined forces of the Perfect Median and DJ Bumblebee.  Then the walls got blown off by the unmistakable flow of EMIRC, with DJ Jimmy Taco kicking down the door.  Finally, the combined efforts of The Street Society and a collective of UH and HCC students brought the house down.

    This was definitely an epic event and one that will be missed.  Congrats and GOOD LUCK to Jake as he embarks on his career with Boeing.  Hopefully, he can link up with atypicalLIVING’s Northwest crew and continue to make the Next Movement happen up there.  I know it was said earlier in the event post, but we feel like we’re watching our brother move up and out, since both atypicalLIVING and genuineHI both got started up around the same time.  We’ll miss the homie Jake, but know that… he’ll be back.

    Check out all the flicks from the Next Movement (all 230 of them), right here on the atypicalFLICKR.

    Trip The Lights: Beat Root GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP 

    20080218-ttl1copyrc6.jpg

    This is IT, you guys.  The final Beat Root (for now) goes down this Friday night, the 29th (leap year!) .  Four of the past winners (Opposite, Ques?, Lael’s Beats and Sentr1c) will be vying for the Grand Championship title with two of the most consistent competitors in the Beat Root series (S.T.U. and Humdrummin).  The title of Hawaii’s best beatmaker is on the line and thes guys will be giving it their all at rRed Elephant.

    BUT!  That’s not the only thing going down this Friday night.  Oh no, because the lightsleepers have packed this night to the gills with an amazing array of performers.

    Look for performances by Hawaii’s own and the Bay Area’s finest Joe Dub and the bulk of Canada’s hip hop scene with Factor, Kay the Aquanaut, Forgetfull Jones, Def3 and Kirby Dominant coming along side the ride.  Also performing are some of Hawaii’s illest, Rhyme Da Old Man will be throwing down, as well as Grip H and Juan P aka the Perfect Median and Showdown in Chinatown winners from the Hidden Habitats, Timer1 and DJ Bumblebee.

    On top of ALL THAT, there’s also going to be art installations by The Starfish Guy, KOAK, Shaun Castro, Stanstill, Nicolai and a whole bunch more.

    PLUS!  There’s also gonna be a blackbook battle based on the word “Primo,” sponosred by Art Primo.

    I don’t know how they’ll be able to get everything in before 1am, but I’m hoping they do.  This is gonna be the greatest night in Hawaii Hip-Hop history.  No doubt in my mind.

    Props to in4mation, XPRMNT, Prolifik, Skull Candy, Easy Music Center, Art Primo and Vitamin Water for making this all possible.
