Hip Hop don’t stop the tide won’t subside,
Infectious thus all of us taking the ride..
See it’s hot like Curry It’ll glide like Clyde
Here there everywhere round the globe world wide..
Its the power…
You cant sleep on this force…the international liaison to the youth and people all
over the planet from NYC to Asia…to EU…and beyond..
Maybe even the galaxy for all we know. Like basketball it’s appeal has
qualities that cant be denied. We caught up with Emapea from Poland who caught the bug in
the nineties…and has never turned back..microphone check one two one two…

A. EMAPEA: Peace La Mont Reed. I’m from Roztocze, Poland. I have been doing my thing since the late 90s.
Q. MRCPROMO: How did you get started?
A. EMAPEA: One day I was listening to some hip-hop music and i notice it was looped and I was wondering why..I had no idea about sampling. Sometime later I saw music software by accident. I started to play with it. I found out about samplers later and got myself MPC. There was nobody in my area who could teach me how to make beats, it was before the internet era. I’m an audio addict…
Q. MRCPROMO: How do you describe your sound?

before… hip-hop is the core of my sound.
