OAKLAND’S CALIFORNIA MUSIC INDUSTRY SUMMIT BRINGS TOGETHER DIFFERENT GENRES OF HIP HOP

2013 CMISThe 3rd Annual California Music Industry Summit will converge on the Laney College campus, June 13-15, 2013. Touted as “the West Coast’s most informative and thorough music conference event”, this year’s showcase of Hip Hop artists demonstrates the diverse nature of Hip Hop today.  No longer regulated to the parks of the Boogie Down Bronx, Hip Hop has twisted into an international kaleidoscope that has spawned sub-genres such as Hyphy, Rap Rock, Gospel Rap, Nerdcore, Horrorcore and others.  Here is just a sampling of the artists you will hear at the California Music Industry Summit.

APOLLO QUAD

Apollo Quad is a band that infuses Hip Hop lyrics with Rock instrumentation. They strive to make music that is powerful and well thought out. Hailing from Bloomington, IN, Apollo Quad is comprised of members Hythum El-sayyad (lead vocals), Steve Alwine (Guitar, Piano and Synth), Ian Ottinger (bass) and Eric Ottinger (Percussion).  Apollo Quad strives to empower and rejuvenate the individual voice.

KONFLIKT

Already acknowledged as one of the best to emerge from the capital city of New Zealand (Wellington), Konflikt is set to captivate the rest of the country with his intelligent lyrical content, his quick-witted tongue, and his engaging subject matter. For Konflikt, music is a way to vent and express what he sees and feels, in an effective way that makes it resonate with his audience. Inspired by true events, his music always retains personal truths about incidents and situations that surround him.

 MR. P CHILL

Mr. P Chill is a solo emcee, songwriter and producer that has independently released 8 albums, performed hundreds of concerts, and fronts his live backing funk/soul band, Trunk of Funk. Mr. P Chill fell in love with rap during its “golden age” when it was about “two turntables and a microphone,” and maybe a well-worn pair of Adidas sneakers. However, Mr. P Chill is not stuck in a time warp. Just as comfortable in a traditional setting with a DJ as he is with a full instrumental band that adds new textures to his music, Mr. P Chill is simply an ambassador of real hip-hop music.
