EVENT: Grandmaster Flash first interactive Hip-hop party

AGMP PRESENTS Grandmaster Flash “Hip Hop, People, Places and Things”

In the past, whenever you saw your favourite hip hop DJ play, it has only been about what you hear, not what you see. But what if you could see exactly what the DJs could see? What if you could see exactly what the original hip hop pioneers could see back in the day? DJs searched high and low for exclusive breaks that no other DJ had and went to great lengths to cover the label so no one knew were the breaks came from….

Well now you can, with the first EVER interactive, visual, history of hip hop block party, told by the innovator, the pioneer, one of the creators of Hip Hop music…the one and only Grandmaster Flash.

Demonstrating the original breaks, from the original 70s records AND the original records sleeves shown LIVE on screen. Showing you the amazing history of Hip Hop, the places, the people, the breaks and techniques that started it all while cuttin’ and scratchin’ your favourite tunes on the turntables for one huge, live, interactive, visual Hip Hop block party….Hip Hop, People, Places and things with the legendary Grandmaster Flash!

Osaka Monaurail are led by Ryo Nakata who have taken inspiration from the music of James Brown to create their own unique sound since their formation in 1992.

Osaka Monaurail take us back to the origins of the funk of the 60s and 70s: a flawless rhythm section, unrestrained brass riffs, tailor-made costumes, choreography set to the millimeter and kilos of sweat left on the dance floor.
