[HIP HOP] Underground hip-hop is alive on Maui’s North Shore and Subliminal Freedom Recordings has a finger on the pulse with artists Amphibeus Tungs and Terms None. Distinctly different in style and delivery these emcees have formed an impressive alliance founded upon independence and dedication to their craft. When performing together they offer a unique and diverse show, fusing a multitude of styles sure to satisfy even the most fanatical hip-hop head.
Amphibeus Tungs’ infectious catchy anthems and soulful stage presence commands crowd involvement, as their dedicated following affirms. Beau Sun and Quest Eons exude virtuosity—exchanging verses so fluidly their chemistry is contagious. OMT representative, Terms None, an internationally seasoned hip-hop and slam performer, known for his dementedly volatile and revolutionary rants will be accompanied with live bass by DaReka. And joining the SubFreedom line-up, for a special solo Maui performance is Jaeda, Pacific Northwest’s favorite female emcee. A courageously conscious voice, she delivers hard-hitting sonnets in a searingly strong and silky style. [EMILY FORSTER]
