    Looking For The Perfect Beat 


    After the lightsleepers usher in the next contestant in the Beat Root Grand Championship battle, DJ Bone and the Got Rice? show will be on the hunt for the perfect beat.

    This one has slightly different rules, with the first three rounds consisting of an experimental beat, a hard core beat, and a feel good beat.  The top two battle it out from there in a one-on-one, winner take all battle.

    This is the hottest beat battle, so bring your heaters.

    This all goes down this Friday night at a very special edition of Hip-Hop at the Trops.  So, be down at Tropics Cafe (on Ward, near Dave and Busters) for all the heat.

    Props to DJ BONE for making Hawaii’s beat scene step up for another round of battling.

    Check out The NEW Got Rice? blog and the new time for the Got Rice? show: Wednesday nights from 9pm-12am on KTUH and http://www.KTUH.org

    Copywrite at Hip-Hop at the Trops 


    All the way live from Ohio, Hip-Hop at the Trops presents Copywrite.

    Part of the MHz (MegaHertz) crew out of Columbus, Copywrite has worked with the likes of RJD2 and is a part of Cage’s supergroup, the Weathermen.

    Recently, he’s been embroiled in a war of words with Asher Roth. Suffice to say, he’s been giving Asher the business. Finally glad someone called him out on a lot of pseudo-Eminem steez.

    Alongside of Copywrite, the night also features Jackson Helmox (Mox and cru), Creed Chameleon, The Wing Men (Risup and Jonah The Whale), Fat Soul, and more.

    DJs Cozy, Un, Revise, and Careless1 will be providing beats to keep the night moving.

    There’s also open mic all night and the great food that Tropics is known for.

    This all goes down this Friday night at Tropics Cafe at the Ward’s Farmers Market. Doors open at 9, music starts at 930, and it’s FREE all night to those 18+.

    For more info, check out DJ Bone’s Got Rice show site.

    Also, don’t forget to tune in to the “Got Rice?” show, every Wednesday night from 12am-3am HST on KTUH.

    Perfect Median farewell show 


    Yes, the headline is correct. After blessing Hawaii with almost 5 years of amazing performances and vibe creating music, Grip-H and know:juander will be performing for the last time in the state of Hawaii.

    But, this is not a sad farewell, as they will be going out with a bang this Friday night at a very special edition of Hip-Hop at the Trops. Along with PM, there will be performances by The Audible Lab Rats, Rhyme The Old Man and Pro (of Pro n Product). DJs Cozy, Un, Revise, and Careless1 will be holding down the rest of the musical duties.

    The show is this Friday at Tropics Cafe. 18+ and no cover.

    For more info, call 808-372-2301

    On a side note, we here at atypicalLIVING have been advocates for The Perfect Median since we met these two dudes at the first genuineHI “On the 1” event. They’ve been supporters since the (near) beginning and we will continue to support both Grip-H and know:juander in their future endeavors outside Hawaii. They blessed Hawaii with amazing performances and held their own night after night, performance after performance.

    If you’ve never gotten a chance to check these guys out live, I highly suggest hitting up Tropics Cafe this Friday night. After the performance, you’ll understand how big of a loss this is for the Hawaii musical community. Big UPS to the Perfect Median and big UPS to DJ Bone for throwing these positive events for the scene.

    Farewell to DJ Skid 

    An era of Hawaii Hip-Hop is coming to an end.

    The current Kings of Hawaii Hip-Hop, the AudibleLabRats, will be performing for the final time (in their current incarnation) at a special event at Tropics Cafe this Saturday night.

    DJ Skid will be moving to LA to pursue other opportunities and will be leaving behind a legacy of owning the Hawaii scene for the past couple of years.  But, before he goes, the Siq Records fam will send him off properly.

    The event will also feature special 30 minute DJ sets from Hawaii’s top DJs, including Revise, Careless1, Packo, Jahson the 45 Revolver and the man himself, DJ Skid.

    Plus, who knows what else will go on?

    The celebration starts at 930pm and there’s no cover, so everyone over 18 is invited to come down and say thank you to ALR for all that they’ve done for Hawaii’s scene.

    For more information, check out Siq Records.
