March 2019 - Dunedin Fringe Festival
The Underground Market
Property Partner: Marsh

Otepoti Hip-Hop Hustle' (OHHH) was a performance based piece in Dunedin Fringe Festival. The philosophy behind the show: a celebration of all things 'Hip-Hop' especially the four elements it encompasses and a celebration of Local Dunedin Hip-Hop. Think DJ's mixing music & scratching, MC's/Rappers freestyling and battling, a live graffiti battle and dancers tearing it up to the music. Basically a hip-hop extravaganza.

Artists included: Marze, Optimist Mind, ZËXLL, TîMMY & Dre, RASA Dance, PHX & 92 (From The H3RD), Matt Matahaere

Graffiti Jam: James Buckner, Willem Van Buskirk, PHX, Kaiger, Chock, Shaun Funnell, Mason Stephens, Bongo, Claire Rye & Hugo Van Dorrser

Ōtepoti Hip Hop Hustle promoted hip-hop culture in a positive light, and brought families and young people together to attend an event they may not normally get to see otherwise.

Crews from RASA School of Dance tore it up, to DJ Forte & Marze alternated on the decks, and some of the best MC’s Ōtepoti has to offer delivered rhymes.

Competitions and Spot Prizes were awarded throughout the afternoon, including some very impressive flossing by some young Hip Hop fans..
