RECAP: LS Pop-Up Opening
The night started off real chill, with music by DJ OBSERVE and KTC. The shirts were hung on the walls in place of art work, and part of exclusive was painted green to prep for PEEKABOO Monster and his solo art show coming this Thursday Night. Peeps rolled through to cop the tees to support. Get yours while you can, the lightsleepers pop-up shop is available this month only in Exclusive.
For those that keep asking what is Lightsleepers? Here's a brief bio from their website:
The Lightsleepers is Hawaii Hip-Hop roots, culture, life, curating, all day - erryday.
Founded in 1997 as a radio show on KTUH 90.3fm called, “The Lightsleepers”. The show was birthed and hosted by Kavet the catalyst. Before the show went off the air in 2001, the accomplishments the show achieved was never done in Hawaii. Listeners from all over the world tuned in to a Hawaii Hip-Hop show. Artists would make it a point to stop in to the show, such as Aceyalone, Jeru the Damaja, Q-Bert, Shortcut, PEACE, Myka9, Radioinactive, Peanutbutterwolf, Sole, Dose, 2Mex, Visionaries, Busdriver, and countless others. Also in that time period the “LS” were able to release 2 tapes and 1 CD, “Narcoleptic Symposium” - a compilation of Hawaii artists as well as artist that stopped into the show to freestyle, “Juxtaprose” - Kavet the catalyst’s first solo tape, and “Narcoleptic Symposium 1.5 Ana Love Digi” - the 2nd compilation from Hawaii.
Non-stop love for Hip-Hop, the Lightsleepers continue to drop gems, jewels, and diamonds. Growing out of the soils of the radio show we have been releasing Music from Nomasterbacks, Wade, Earthmovers, Jus1oh, Dj Observ, and ktc, with much more to come. Doing on-going events/shows such as Trip the lights, Beatroot, Inertia, Heartists, Hip-Hop Cinema, Games of S-K-A-T-E, and 2H 2F. Overall, spreading the love for God through example and action, by teaching, educating, and believing in the youth.
The Lightsleepers; never sleep, don’t sleep, and won’t sleep.
