Underground Sound generally avoid Paceville like the plague but there are some exceptions to this that will see us venture down there.
On this occasion, our interest has been sparked by the imminent arrival of a new hip hop event to be held at Sky Club.
Welcome to Candyshop, bringing you some of the hottest old and new school hip-hop beats courtesy of Kryzo-P, alongside live performances from three of Malta’s top hip hop artists of the moment, Owen Leuellen, Il Lapes, and Kelsey Bellante.
I spoke briefly with the organisers who tell me “We’re really going all out with this event, with the hope that we can really showcase the up and coming talent coming out of Malta within the hip hop scene. We would like to add that it’s about time the hip hop community in Malta started coming together a lot more to collaborate and support events with our local artists. It’s a small island, the power is in numbers”
This resonates well with us here at UGS because it’s something we have been saying for a long time now.This thinking is not just beneficial within the hip-hop community but within each represented genre.
Aside from the beats, the guys at Candyshop say that you can, of course, expect candy upon entrance, street dancers as well as the chance to win a x2 weekend breaks,Dinner for two and vouchers. If that’s not enough to wet your appetite there will also be a VIP area where you can rub shoulders with the artists.
