[Press Release From Samee Sam & The Trilogy]
Hip Hop was born in August 1973, a cultural revolution that took hold in the streets of New York City. Picture this: abandoned buildings and parking lots transformed into bustling epicenters, pulsating with the electrifying breakbeats curated by visionary DJs and MCs; B-boys and B-girls dancing on makeshift cardboard dancefloors, while graffiti artists unveil their masterpieces on walls.
Fast forward to 2023, Hip Hop celebrates its 50th anniversary and on 26th of November graffiti artist and popping dancer Samee Sam, joins forces with the newly opened multi-music hub, The Trilogy by Singular Concepts, for a tribute to the legacy of Hip Hop in the heart of Hong Kong!
Bringing the “Block Party” atmosphere to the rooftop of H-CODE in Central, a solid lineup of DJs, whose presence has shaped the city’s vibrant clubbing scene, will infuse the airwaves with an eclectic medley of Hip Hop, BreakBeat, Funk, G Funk, and New Jack tunes throughout the whole afternoon. Street dancers will immerse in cyphers of different styles such as B-boying, Hip Hop, Popping, and Locking. There will be live graffiti and beatbox performances, gravity-defying exhibition battles, freestyle battles and MCs spitting fire, all featuring homegrown artists from the block and beyond.
