Looking for MCs, DJs and producers in D.C.

Just moved here from Florida. Down there we did something called H2O: Hip Hop Organic, which was for alternative, underground, left-field, nerdcore, political and other kinds of rap you don't usually hear on the radio these days. I'm looking to start that up here, as well.

What I'm looking for are MCs, DJs and producers who want to perform at a monthly gig (location to rotate among venues and parts of town) and to make music for compilations and mixtapes.

Your style and lyrics are open, and variety is best, but I'm really looking for people who are interested in more than rapping about "bitches and bling." I think of hip hop as an art form designed to give a voice to the voiceless. That's what H2O is about. If you can get on board with that concept, your style and lyrics are welcome at H2O, regardless of what they are.

Also open to stand-up comedians, dancers and other performers to help round out the shows. You have to have some kind of audio or video of what you do so I can get a feel for whether or not you fit what we're trying to do.

You aren't limited by this, but I prefer people that make sounds like: Dr. Dre, The Bomb Squad, Erick Sermon, Kanye West, Rick Rubin, Jam Master Jay, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Muggs, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Prince Paul, Scott La Rock, The Dust Brothers, Afrika Bambaataa, Missy Elliott, DJ Premier, Marley Marl, Pete Rock, RZA, Mister Mixx, Eric B, etc.

And people that flow like: Public Enemy, Run DMC, KRS-One, Beastie Boys, NWA, LL Cool J, Digital Underground, Kurtis Blow, Nas, Schooly D, Outkast, Slick Rick, Ice-T, Fresh Prince, Snoop, De La Soul, Kanye West, Eminem, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, Jay-Z, 2Pac, Das Racist, The Coup, Danny Brown, etc.

Either way send me a message with something about you and your music (or other related art) and links to the same. And you can become a fan of the group on Facebook at
