    SideRoad Records vs. Siq Records 

    As a precursor to the greatest night in the history of Hawaii Hip-Hop, the Siq Records crew will unite with the SideRoad Records crew for an amazing event mixing the best of Hawaii and Canada.

    The show will be co-headlined by Hawaii’s own Hunger Pains, the Bay’s finest- Joe Dub, and
    the pride of Saskatchewan- Factor.

    Also on the bill is an amazing amount of the SideRoad and Siq family at one spot, including Creed Chameleon, Kirby Dominant, Meiso, Pure, Packo, Kay the Aquanaut, Forgetful Jones and Def3.  This is not your ordinary Thursday night jumpoff, this is a night full of amazing hip-hop spanning two countries.

    The entire event goes down 9PM this Thursday night at the Lotus Soundbar on Kuhio Ave. This is a 21+ affair, so kids, stay home or wait until the next night at Trip the Lights when it’s all ages.

    For more info, check out the Siq Records website.

    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.

    For more information, check out the lightsleepers website.

    Props to wade, well.being and Temper T for being nominated for HIp-Hop album of the year at the Hawaii Music Awards.  While this is a special accomplishment, the real accomplishment is winning the thing.

    And that is where you come in.

    Worldwide voting for the Hawaii Music Awards has just started and you have until February 4th to get your votes in.  Vote for independent local hip-hop and a vote for NMB is a vote for lightsleepers, which also happens to be a vote for Hawaii.  So, vote early and vote often.

    You can vote once per day per email address.  So, those of us that have multiple addresses (present company included) can vote more than once per day.   The link to vote is right here.  The Hawaii Music Award winners will be announced on March 15th.

    Congrats once again to the NMB crew!
