i have to be honest with myself, and you. i hate this current evolution of hip-hop.
i don’t hate all of it, but definitely the misogynistic anthemy shit you hear in the clubs at peak hours all the time.
no wonder women can’t figure out how to respect themselves, and no wonder men think they are so freely entitled to be complete assholes. herc developed this stuff to keep people dancing, not raping each other with words.

there is a huge difference between walking in to a club with a bunch of dudes in the DJ booth shouting out “N*gga bitch” or a room full of people, mostly beautiful women, dancing and smiling.
guess what these both exist, Honolulu, and i am here now to share where the latter can be found.

i know you already know about Bevy bar. they only know great music. it ranges from soulful house to house to soul to neo-soul, disco, nu-disco, indie dance, indie rock and sometimes live music. their regulars – kevin koga, timo, ramyt and roger bong are some of the very very best in this city. check it out.

the longest running house music party is celebrating 7 years at bar35 on Friday. if you ever wanted to be in a room of classic, soulful house and the positive energy and dancing that brings this party is the landmark event for all that. it’s called SOULGASM and it’s so exactly what it is.

this weekend Friday i actually get to share in the joyous occasion of house music at LUSH which is a monthly event at eleven44 in downtown. you may have found yourself at this spot at their Party After Art on last fridays or Foundation First Fridays – both done by the same promoters. there have been so many strangers connecting with the djs and the music and staying, applauding after the lights come up. it’s truly magical. i will be spinning mostly melodic house from 9p-10p and am THRILLED to be on this lineup with some of the house music veterans (hello daniel j!??!)

LUSH

saturday i’m on with the KTUH sirens JEM, Zilla and Gnaraly. Nara will play early before heading to set up her private disco event at the space. you don’t get more info on that one unless you know someone (don’t be afraid to ask). anyway our safehouse gig is free so if you’re wondering where to go stop through. if you want to scoop up some sweet gear from rvca and such then come early. i’m on there 11p-1a

i had like 5 comments come through from the same i.p address on my dj post. someone definitely is not on my team, lol. i could give a flying fck but think it’s funny when he said “radio killed music.” i was just thinking the other day when i had the radio on how awesome it’s gotten to hear disclosure and mr probz both break in to that heavy rotation on the hip hop stations. i was like, hey! there’s a future! i can see the light! i really think all these kids coming up super hardcore on edm will see the light very soon as well as the twerk and trap gives way to a deep house trend. it’s already gone tropical. either way nobody should give up on music completely. i just hate the ignorant anthems period.
