guide us through yet
another genre-bending trip through the future-forward music scene
that’s blowing up the Asian American underground. Don’t blink…You

DJ NEIL ARMSTRONG // www.djneilarmstrong.com
Neil Armstrong has come a long way since his humble beginnings in New
York’s hiphop underground. A mere ten years into his career, Neil
finds himself as the Global Music Ambassador for Adidas and as Jay-Z’s
tour DJ (from 2008 to 2009). Catapulted to the highest-regard in
hip-hop, Neil is instantly becoming the most sought-after DJ in the
world.

BLACKBIRD BLACKBIRD // blackbirdblackbird.com
Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker/musical outlet of San Francisco
wunderkind Mikey Maramag, whose deep, textured, and hypnotic pop songs
have captured the ears of Pitchfork, Transparent, Prefix Magazine, The
Fader, and other musical taste-makers alike.

HOPIE // hopiespitshard.com
Rising Bay Area female emcee Hopie has powers on the mic and beyond,
with a doctorate from U.C. Hastings and skills in everything from
violin to spoken word to guitar. Her debut album, Diamond Dame,
garnered national attention and a nomination for URB’s Next 1000,
immediately making Hopie an artist to watch.

MICROPIXIE // micropixie.com
Made in Bombay, born & raised in the U.K., and based in San Francisco,
Micropixie (aka MPX) is an experimental recording artist whose style
can’t be confined to any one genre. Described as sensuous and
textural, look out for her new album, “The Good, the Beige & the
Ugly”.

DJ TAP .10 // honorrollcrew.com
DJ Tap.10 is the official DJ/Remixer of the heavily buzzed-about Honor
Roll Crew, a Bay Area collective of rappers, producers, DJs, and
singers. He has been spinning coast-to-coast with the hottest
selections, putting it down with his own brand of R&B soul,
progressive hip-hop, and original tracks.
