Event description

Description

"Limitation gives birth to innovation. By making use of the sparse resources around them, the originators of hip hop culture built something greater than each component that comprised it. Record players were used to loop, scratch, and spin backwards decades-old vinyl. Short break beats became the heart beat that drove the music. The earliest human instrument, the voice, was used to bend letters and dance over rhythms in feats of linguistic acrobatics.

This project represents another iteration of that same story. Personal yet universal, it is dedicated to the dedicated who seek a fulfillment outside of the norm. That fulfillment can come from any number of avenues: for some, it is a business idea, and for others it is through service to their community. Our calling is art. These are beats made on second-hand machines, with samples dug up and resurrected from the bottom of long-forgotten dollar-bin crates. Rhymes penned in the moments between life and earning a living, and photographs that visually represent the people, places, emotions, successes and failures that continue us along on this path towards our highest selves, which is a glory capable of all of us. That LO FI GLORY."
