Co-produced by global music/media company, Nomadic Wax, and public relations/music promoter, The Bloom Effect, the CMJ Global Hip-Hop Throwdown is a live music showcase featuring some of the top breakout hip-hop artists from around the world.

“CMJ is a perfect place for a global hip-hop event like this” said The Bloom Effect CEO, Fiona Bloom. “An event that unites MCs from a variety of backgrounds, countries and nationalities is exactly the kind of event that we want to be promoting at a global music conference like CMJ.” 

“The CMJ Global Hip-Hop Throwdown has been building up for me since I’ve been very supportive of this genre and have made inroads bringing great talent to the U.S stages and now we bring it one step further to a bigger platform.  A tremendous opportunity.” said Nomadic Wax founder Ben Herson.

In addition to Korea’s DJ Soulscape and VJ Kwon tandem, this year’s event will be hosted by rapper Pharoahe Monch (USA) and will feature special performances from rising stars such as Blitz the Ambassador (Ghana), Mr. Reo (Haiti), King Reign (Canada),Empire Isis (Canada), Chachi (Cape Verde) and Too Many Fish (France).

DJ Soulscape

If a single artist represents 'The Sound Of Seoul', it is DJ Soulscape. A vinyl archeologist who excavates rare, indigenous beats, he delivers a groovy bi-bim-bop mix of old school Korean rock, soul, disco, and boogaloo served sizzling hot in a funky, fresh hip-hop style. A favorite among clubbers and critics alike, DJ Soulscape has been nominated as the Crossover Artist of the Year at the Korea Music Awards (2003) and honored as the creative genius behind one of the top 100 K-Pop Albums of the 20th Century (2008).  In between his gigs as a producer and performer, he also moonlights as one of Seoul's top party promoters, music columnists, and radio show hosts.

VJ Kwon

A pioneering icon in Korea’s visual jockey circuit, VJ Kwon is a versatile motion graphics designer/live action director whose dynamic, kitschy chic style has taken him from the underground clubs to the mainstream cinemas.  Known for his sensational local performances with superstar DJs such as Sasha, Paul Van Dyk, and James Lavelle, he emerged as a star in his own right after collecting numerous awards and accolades at various international film festivals (Resfest Seoul 2002/2003, LA Shortsfest 2003, Japan Skipcity Festival 2004). Although he continues to keep a busy concert schedule, VJ Kwon is currently involved with a variety of music video, broadcast design, and feature film projects.

Welcome To The Wonderland

(SEOUL KR) Fresh off the success of producing Asian pop superstar, Rain, legendary Korean artist/producer Jin-Young Park (JYP) jumped into his next major project, his first ever girl group -- the Wonder Girls.

Carefully selected and specially trained under his highly disciplined, highly effective, JYP Entertainment system, the multi-talented Wonder Girls debuted in February 2007 with their mini-album, ‘The Wonder Begins’. Thanks to their smash hit song, the catchy hip-hop dance track, ‘Irony’, the Wonder Girls immediately made their mark on the K-Pop scene as new artists to watch.

But with the September 2007 release of their first studio album,‘The Wonder Years’, the Wonder Girls broke out big time with their breakthrough, chart-topping single, ‘Tell Me’. Fueled by a retro electro 80s vibe, ‘Tell Me’ sparked a nationwide Wonder Girls craze that had fans of all ages and from all walks of life -- students, stewardesses, policemen, pro athletes, celebrities, drag queens -- creating thousands of viral ‘Tell Me’ dance videos.

Emerging as one of Korea’s best-selling and most popular acts of 2007/2008, the Wonder Girls have been embraced as the nation’s sweet little sisters. And with their high-profile forays into acting, modeling, and TV show hosting, the Wonder Girls are now widely regarded as Korea’s top female K-Pop group.

Setting their sights internationally in 2008/2009, the Wonder Girls are prepping to bring their wonderful, wonderland adventures across Asia and into America.
