Aloha Got Soul Documentary Film Sneak Peak (in 2019)

It's been 2 years since we started making a documentary about forgotten and obscure music from Hawaii. This month, director Filipe Zapelini has returned to Honolulu in conjunction with TRADES Artist in Residence to work with Aloha Got Soul's Roger Bong in finishing production of the film. We've spent April 2019 filming the rest of the scenes, interviews, and spaces needed to complete the film (at least we hope!). On Friday, April 26 we'll share clips of our recent progress as well as insights into the music and musicians featured in the Aloha Got Soul documentary. Join us at Aupuni...

Endless Summer Jam: live DJ set for the breakers and dancers

It's not the first time I've recorded a DJ set with the wrong settings 😪. But the results are just as fun to listen to as the DJ Notoya all-Japanese vinyl set I posted a few years ago: "I’ve been a little reluctant to post the recording online. Mainly because the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. But I’ve been listening to it a lot lately and I’ve come to think that it’s worth sharing. When paired with Hiko’s photos, Notoya’s iPhone recording transports the listener to this space." excerpt from That Tokyo Melody: DJ Notoya at Soul...

Murals and Music: DJing Bevy's "Quintessence" at Pow! Wow! Hawai‘i

We set up our turntables and mixer inside the barn-like space at SALT, the mixed-use development recently built in Kaka‘ako, across from some wooden panels that would act as a canvas for artists Solomon Enos and Nicole Naone. This was just a small slice of the annual Pow! Wow! Hawai‘i, which kicks off every year with a massive block party coinciding with Honolulu Night Market. We didn't have much of a chance to walk around that evening, but I know there were plenty of food stalls, clothing merchants, jewelry stands, a beer garden or two, DJs rocking the crowds, and...
