Green Leaf Check Kickstarter | Cultivate Honolulu Underground Music

August 23rd, 2014

Green Leaf Check (GLC) is a non-profit organization of like-minded individuals based out in Honolulu, Hawaii who share a common purpose; to cultivate the local underground culture by sharing our influences, tastes, and talents through the diversified skill sets of our contributors from DJ’s to emcees, producers and visual artists.

Honolulu’s underground music community is filled with talented artists and amazing music, products and sounds you don’t necessarily associate Hawaii with.

GLC’s goal is to create a hub where these artists can showcase their talents on a nonrestrictive platform and enthusiasts (new and old) can come together, be exposed to these local talents, and be a part of the creative process.

Green Leaf Check’s mission is to build a bridge for the local underground music community between Hawaii and the mainland and eventually the world.

Would love your help and support. If you’d like to donate today, visit bit.ly/greenleafcheck or come to Nextdoor Upstairs tonight for GLC’s first fundraiser show featuring local producers TSRK and GLC residents Kowai Kowai and Joncozy.

Local hip-hop group The Horror Show gets blunt with ’shorts.’

August 21st, 2014

The Workhouse boys The Horror Show released their newest EP “shorts.”, which will be the precursor to their sophomore album releasing in December called “Snuff Music.” The EP has 10 tracks unlike regular EP’s, which typically has 4 tracks but come on, The Horror Show is anything but normal.

Joncozy (Jonathan Sucaldito) and Decibel Grand (Joshua Dombrosky) have different cadences and styles of delievery but when together as The Horror Show they carve out their own genre and unforgettable sound in Hawaii’s hip-hop scene. In “shorts.” they collaborated with a few notable local producers such as Christian Mochizuki aka Graves known for his work on projects with Kanye West and Kid Cudi. Another producer Mr. Carmack who is now traveling the world with Mad Decent, and up-and-coming producers such as TSRK who was Lightsleeper’s Beatroot Grand Champion 2013 Runner-Up, ZAZZ, and Workhouse’s own Rukka The Magnificent.

On their physical EP, an additional track produced by Mr. Carmack called “Steel Reserve” features Pigeon Jon while he was in Hawaii to perform with Grouch and Eligh. The song had over 100K plays on Soundcloud and Youtube in one month and is still played till this day.

Stream below and purchase their EP physically at About The Goods and online at iTunes and Bandcamp.
