Jan 15th – SOUNDCLASH @ Root Down

Last night I made it over to Temple Bar in Los Angeles to see the homie DJ Haircut (aka Mayer Hawthorne) take part in DJ Dusk’s “Soundclash”.

I had never been to one of these events before, but Soundclash was something DJ Dusk (the man who started the weekly, Root Down — R.I.P to Dusk) started back in 2001. Past match-ups have included:
Madlib vs Cut Chemist
Will.I.Am vs. Thes One
OHNO vs. Exile

Well, yesterday was the 5th installment of this amazing event, and it also happened to mark the DVD release of the first three events!

Last night’s match-up pitted the extremely dope Dibia$i (finished 2nd in L.A Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle) and homie Haircut (LabTechs production crew / A-Side Worldwide / Stones Throw Records). Both Dibia$i and Haircut did a tremendous job, and the crowd that showed up was one of the best crowds I had seen at Rootdown in a minute!

Peep the video of last night’s event:
