    Are You HI? 


    Tassho Pearce and The Spacifics break off some FREE Hawaii hip-hop for your iTunes.

    “Are You HI?” is a track that Tassho normally performs in his set (and if you were at either Blue Scholars show or the De La Soul show, you KNOW what song this is.)

    Well, the track knocks thanks to the awesome live bandness of The Spacifics and the lyrical genius of one of Hawaii’s best MCs.

    This is available NOW and FOR FREE from this site.

    Download, listen, load onto mp3 player and then share with others. It’s THAT dope.

    For more info, check out the Flip The Bird site.

    Tassho Pearce in MidWeek 

    OK, all you needed to do was peep the headline and that should have caused you to run to the mailbox.

    Hawaii’s hip-hop mogul, Tassho Pearce, has just landed on the cover of MidWeek’s Weekend edition.  The Melissa Moniz penned story covers the entire journey of Tassho from Hoomanakas and KTUH to “Rhyme and Punishment” to the beginnings of Flip the Bird to the Run Athletics collabo to “The Opening Act.”

    It really gives a great perspective on someone that is bringing Hawaii to the masses without settling for the usual stereotypes and imagery that is associated with Hawaii.  Cutting a new path for Hawaii, Tassho and a host of Hawaii’s new breed of MCs (Creed Chameleon, Perfect Median, and NoMasterBacks come to mind as well) is taking Hawaii’s melting pot reputation and flipping it to bring Hawaii to the masses.

    As it was mentioned in the article, “The Opening Act” is now available in select stores now, including Kicks/HI, in4mation and Prototype.  The nationwide release of “The Opening Act” is this Tuesday, October 14th.

    You can read the MidWeek article here.

    You can find out more about Tassho and Flip the Bird at their website: flipthebirdonline.com

    NEW! EMIRC “Return To The Basics” single on iTunes 

    Tassho Pearce (aka EMIRC) is Hawaii’s hip-hop mogul.  The head of Flip The Bird is also one of Hawaii’s illest emcees, and he flexes those emcee skills on his latest track “Return To The Basics.”  The FTB CEO got Dilated all over this track, with Evidence lacing the beat and DJ Babu with the cuts.  EMIRC dropped a special version of this at The (last) Next Movement and it brought the beat hard.  I have no doubt that the track will bump equally as hard coming out of your iPod.

    Look for this track both on iTunes and BeatSource.  This is the first salvo from his upcoming album The Opening Act, coming soon.

    The (last) Next Movement 

    This is it.  Jake the Snake is retiring at the top of his game.

    The Final Edition of the Next movement goes down this Saturday night.  For the past couple of years, Jake has always brought in an eclectic mix of music, art and fashion into the Chinatown nightlife scene.  And the Next Movement has gotten acclaim from media, both print and blog.

    And now, it’s coming to an end.  But, before sounding the death knell, Jake the Snake will send out one final salvo as a thank you to everyone that has stepped into the Next Movement.  And what a final strike it will be.

    The musical guests will span the present and future of Hawaii hip-hop.  Headlining the event is the present mogul of Hawaii hip-hop, Tassho Pearce aka EMIRC.  Besides being one of the dopest MCs in the state, Tassho is also the creative force behind the Flip The Bird clothing line and has done collaborations with Evidence from Dilated Peoples, DJ Q-Bert, and Run Athletics for the highly publicized FTB x RA collaboration shoe.

    Opening for EMIRC is the Future of Hawaii hip-hop, the Perfect Median.  Juan P and Grip H will be bringing their melodic soul samples, razor sharp wit, showmanship and style to an eagerly anticipating audience.  They’ll be accompanied by the infamous DJ Bumblebee.  They already killed the Next Movement once before, and have been on a tear since, releasing leaked track after leaked track, getting Hawaii prepped for the future.  And the future is looking bright.

    Speaking of the future, the fashion portion of the Next Movement will feature the future: students from the HCC Fashion Department and UH Manoa’s APDM Department will be displaying their work on the Next Movement catwalk.  Also on display will be the fashion of The Street Society.

    The art for this month will be handled by Hawaii nightlife’s most visible photographer, Honozooloo.  What does he have in store for the Next Movement?  Swing by the show and find out.

    As always, DJ Mr. Nick and DJ Fame will be holding it down.

    The Final Next Movement takes flight this Saturday night at Next Door.  Doors open at 9pm. $5 presale tickets are available via genuineHI.com, otherwise, it’s $10 at the door.

    On a personal note, the atypicalLIVING crew wishes Jake the best of luck on his new endeavors in Seattle.  Congrats on the new job and we got peoples in Seattle to link you up with, so you won’t be without a scene for too long.  It’s sad to see people leave Hawaii, but it’s awesome to see them move up in the world.  Jake/genuineHI started about the same time as we did here at atypicalLIVING, so it feels like we’re losing a sibling in a sense.  But, we know that the positive lifestyle that Jake promoted will continue to live on in the scene thanks to the efforts of genuineHI.

    It’s not a eulogy, but a celebration.  So, swing by Next Door this Saturday nights and live the positive lifestyle one last time with the genuineHI crew.  atypicalLIVING will definitely be in the building for this one, so you better be there as well.
