THANKS F*CK THURSDAY PRESENTD UNITY JAM ASIA @ PLAY
Thank F*ck It’s Thursday Presents: Unity Jam
Unity Jam is a Hip-Hop gathering to further education and growth within the Hip-Hop community. Unity through Hip-Hop is what Unity Jam is all about. Originally begun by the Shaka Zulu Kings, Unity Jam Asia consists of 4 DJs: DJ Wordy, DJ Don Martinez, DJ Enso and Yao, who will be spinning proper Hip-Hop all night long, along with MCing and a live performance from EKORB. Come to PLAY on Thursday, August 15, 2013 for a truly unique musical experience!
Unity Jam provides a non-biased platform for learning more about the genre that led to the Zulu Nation. This is about music, art, and culture; not about glorifying violence, money, or guns. The five elements of Hip-Hop will be on full display: DJ, MC, B-Boy (breakdancer), Graffiti, and Knowledge.
Unity Jam musical performers include DJ Wordy, the 3 x China DMC Champion and China’s first ever international DJ star, a true pioneer who has traveled the world showcasing his turntablist skills and is currently on tour with Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar; DJ Don Martinez, the multi-genre French party-rocker and mixtape producer, famed for his annual Cannes appearances with artists such as P.Diddy, Busta Rhymes, and Pharrell Williams; MC EKORB aka Nick Cage, a Tampa Bay, USA performer well-known in the SE Asia underground Hip-Hop scene who has MCed with the likes of DJ Shortkutt and Q-Bert; DJ Enso, founder of the Solos Records music label and Hong Kong's infamous XXX Gallery who has played alongside internationally-known DJs Steve Aoki, A-Trak, and Craze; joining DJ Enso is Yao, whose musical palette ranges from Hip-Hop to soul to electronic music and who has shared the stage with Tyga, Diplo, and De La Soul.
Break-dancers from Dragon Zulus UK & SuperBadd Zulus Hong Kong will perform an exclusive set for the crowd, local graffiti artists will showcase their artistic skills, plus there will be a bilingual workshop on the art of the MC.
On Thursday, August 15, Unity Jam will be reintroducing the world of Hip-Hop to Hong Kong, where music is poetry and the art-form returns to its roots.
Only at PLAY.
