#19 Raw Heat, Black Sweat

Join us for a co-curated evening by Marcel van den Berg, a block party at the Central Space celebrating 50 Years of Hip Hop Culture with KC, Loopey, Farida Sedoc, Jeff Croese and Shigeo Arikawa.

On August 11, 1973, a young dj named Kool Herc did something special behind the turntables at a party.
This spark helped ignite a cultural explosion
we now know as Hip-Hop Culture.

Today, 50 years 2 months and a day later
What we’re celebrating here in Central Space of
Buro Stedelijk located in this old house called
Stedelijk Museum, is a never ending rhythm,
a drum groove, the Funk.

To me Hip Hop is the Foundation
Music is the gasoline
Graffiti is that pure expressive energy
Dj-ing is the storyteling

It’s always gonna be Raw Heat
It’s forever a product built on Black Sweat

Historians of Inner City Life producing
Vocals and Sound of Struggle and Pride
Breathing in Babylon through Free Expression
Escaping Babylon through Creativity

Even tho it’s not your game.
You didn’t make the rules
Everything comes hard.
But the first thing is getting in the game
Once we’re in the game we wanna
Master it.
Once we’ve mastered it we wanna
Transform it.
Tonight we celebrate.
Immersed in a Sauce filled with
Dedication and Love
Gotta keep the Juices Runnin
For the Culture and it’s People.
This is Us

This is for You
Cuz All we got iz Us.

We be dem.
Blessed People

Tonight I wanna ask one favor of you
Imagine what we’ll all be like in our own game.

On October 12 we gather at an evening organized by Marcel van den Berg during which we celebrate his process at Buro Stedelijk. In celebration of 50 years of Hip Hop culture he has invited KC, Loopey, Farida Sedoc, Jeff Croese and Shigeo Arikawa for a block party packed with music, video and paint. Marcel collaborated with Shigeo on a video made during his time in the Central Space and with KC on the soundtrack. The video edit is an ongoing process, of which the current version will be shown in a loop during Raw Heat, Black Sweat.  

KC and Loopey perform live, and Marcel, Farida and Jeff play back to back. This manifestation is a celebration not of the end result, but of the process and experimentation that Manifestation #8: To Be Determined fosters.

Op 12 oktober zijn we bij elkaar op een avond georganiseerd door Marcel van den Berg waarin we zijn proces vieren bij Buro Stedelijk. Om 50 jaar Hip Hop cultuur te vieren heeft hij KC, Loopey, Farida Sedoc, Jeff Croese en Shigeo Arikawa uitgenodigd voor een block party vol muziek, video en verf. Marcel werkte samen met Shigeo aan een video die hij maakte tijdens zijn periode in de Central Space en met KC aan de soundtrack. De video edit is een doorlopend proces, waarvan de huidige versie in een loop zal worden getoond tijdens Raw Heat, Black Sweat.   

KC en Loopey treden live op en Marcel, Farida en Jeff spelen back to back. Deze manifestatie is geen viering van het eindresultaat, maar van het proces en het experiment dat Manifestatie #8: To Be Determined stimuleert.
