ON SCREENBeat Street

1984. Directed by Stan Lathan. Runtime: 105 minutes. Rated PG. 
Produced by Harry Belafonte, Hollywood’s first in-depth exploration of hip-hop culture centers on teens in the Bronx, the epicenter of the blooming hip-hop community, finding their way. Littered with cameos from hip-hop greats, the film captures the pulse of a community before their culture hit the mainstream. With Rae Dawn Chong, Guy Davis, Mary Alice, and Duane Jones.

OFF SCREEN: No Requests DJs Klyph & Ambush

DJ Klyph is a veteran of terrestrial radio in Portland, Oregon, building a brand that has promoted the local music scene through FM broadcast [The Numberz FM & XRAY FM], podcasts [Klyph Notes], and live events [No Requests & Mic Check PDX].

As a selector, he leans heavily towards lyrical content and classic boom bap due in great part to his early years in the Northeastern corner of the US. After spending prominent years in the South, he relocated to the Northwest and has become a fixture in the local scene.

“The Rhythm” radio show on The Numberz FM allows Klyph to continue the mission of bringing great content to listeners, highlighting music you won’t hear anywhere else in the city. “Welcome to the Neighborhood” on XRAY FM provides a platform for artists from within the region and national artists as well. The “Klyph Notes” podcast brings long form interviews, diving into the stories behind the art. Klyph works to create platforms representing the underrepresented from the Northwest and worldwide.

Being a collector of music since the age of 14, Ambush has always had a devout interest in making people dance. Starting out by rocking high school and basement parties, Ambush was the one showing up with the “pause tape” cassette mixes and was always amazed and excited to see audiences react to his selections. Soon thereafter, Ambush acquired his first set of turntables, and started getting booked for parties; the rest is history. Ambush’s love for music and DJ’ing has taken him all over. With over 26 years of experience in nightclubs, concerts, festivals, retail locations, and weddings coupled with a rich knowledge of music Ambush is the perfect DJ for any occasion.
