Theory Hazit

The Portland based producer/MC/videographer is consistently in conversation when folk speak on cats that can do it all. Soft spoken and someone who plays the background, it's easy to forget how nice he his on the microphone as evidenced by the recently released Team Backpack PDX Cypher visuals, and in the lab as evidenced by his latest beat project The Soul Chops, released on Kiasu Records.

On occasion I miss on amazing artists right here in my community.

DJ Sneakers

I've known of him longer than I've known him, first hearing his name associated with a local radio station years ago. Over time, I've gotten to know him personally and he's been a steady supporter of projects I'm involved with. It's always great to sit with folk who've been involved in the scene for a while and he qualifies for sure from DJing for Boom Bap Projects and Luck-One to now running Kiasu Records - check out the latest episode of Klyph Notes with DJ Sneakers.
