DJ Muro comes to Hawaii to meet Aloha Got Soul and spin at the three-year anniversary of Soul Time in Hawaii.
To say that I am honored to invite DJ Muro, the King of Diggin’, to join us here in Honolulu for the three year anniversary of Soul Time in Hawaii, is an understatement. After all, it was his Hawaiian Breaks mix that sparked my initial idea to create Aloha Got Soul. My very first blog post was written in hopes of uncovering the full tracklist to his mixtape, and with the help of some new friends at the time, I accomplished that goal.
I wonder if Muro ever imagined that one of his mixtapes would spark the beginnings of a project such as this? I’ll have to ask him when he’s here.
The last time Muro did a gig in Hawaii was probably 2008? That was a long time ago — and a year before he released his Hawaiian Breaks mixtape in 2009. Maybe he found some serious local gems while digging in Hawaii during that trip? I’ll ask him when he’s here. The veteran Japanese hip-hop pioneer, DJ extraordinaire, and collector of rare records will be spinning strictly vinyl with us at Bevy in Kaka‘ako, on Saturday, March 25th. Entry is free (as always!).
And guess what: March 25 is also DJ Muro’s birthday. What are the odds? —Roger Bong
