Historically, Hip-Hop culture was born through a want to rid New-York's ghettos of gang violence, and to strengthen local communities. Through music, art, and dance, Hip-Hop's key message was to bring people together. Both Donald D and Alien Ness have been hugely influential in promoting the positive messages of hip-hop culture.

Donald D grew up in New York's Bronx throughout the 70's and 80's and witnessed the beginnings of Hip-Hop first hand. As a rap artist, he has worked along side the likes of Chuck Chillout, Ice-T and Afrika Islam. Also a Bronx native, Alien Ness has produced music with Hip-Hop godfather, Afrika Bambaataa, and has danced with the world famous Rock Steady Crew.

Fresh Jive has established itself as the biggest and most respected regular breakdance jam in Europe, dedicated to preserving the values of true Hip-Hop culture. A monthly event in Leeds, and now featuring around the UK, June '07 saw Fresh Jive labeled in the top 3 club-nights in the country - (Mixmag July 07 p.35). Check out:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
