This weekend’s signature Island music massive will experience an eclectic electronic music twist courtesy of DJ Tide.

Tide’s remarkable house and breakbeat devotion has run deep ever since he was inspired by the legendary Kakaako Carl Cox New Year’s Eve bash of 2000. Catering to an island music crowd is a challenge he welcomes with no reservation.

“I think it’s an awesome idea,” he says. “I’ve always loved musical festivals that have a wide variety of genre choices whether its hip-hop, rock or reggae.”

This month marks 12 years of participating and perpetuating in a scene that has become a huge part of his life.

Be prepared chee-hoo revelers and skank freak nasties, because the opportunity to unvibe out to homeboy’s so fresh and so clean sounds might be too hard to pass up, even in Crocs or your Scotts (slippers).
