Daily Dose: Kollaboration 2012 Guest Performers

In honour of this year’s show’s guest performers, Dumbfoundead (and Dj Zo) and Joseph Vincent, we have a video from both of them below, as well as a little snippet about them.

Enjoy!

Joseph Vincent is an up-and-coming acoustic artist striving to make a name for himself in the world of music. Growing up, Joseph had an open ear for music, listening to all types of genres from hip-hop to rock. He picked up his first guitar at the age of 15 and started off by playing covers of some of his main musical influences, Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz. He began writing and composing his own original songs at the age of 16.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina to South Korean refugees,  Jonathan Park (Korean name: 박성만 Park Sung Man) was smuggled in along with his sister by his mother to Mexico, and then later settled in Koreatown in Los Angeles at the age of three. He was often seen as a class clown by his peers at an early age, and was exposed to hip-hop at age ten upon entering a community center in MacArthur Park and meeting emcees such as Mark Luv of Zulu Nation, Poppin’ Chuck, Cre8 RTN, and Ezrock.[2] This first experience with hip-hop allowed him to develop the technique of freestyling and to educate himself on hip-hop’s history and roots. A year later, he was taken to Project Blowed, an open-mic workshop located in Leimert Park in South Central Los Angeles, by a high school friend. There he would continue to hone his abilities as an emcee amongst the influence of “Blowdians” such as Otherwize, Riddlore, NoCanDo, P.E.A.C.E., and many others, eventually earning the title of “Blowdian” himself. One of Dumbfoundead’s signature lines is “Get your bars up, peace”
