MORE20 wrap up part III - Feat. KRS-One and The Pharcyde

As the in-store activities wrapped up for the Saturday portion of MORE20 weekend, the focus had begun to shift to the MORE20 music event!  Myxed Up MORE20 Extract Artists Harvest Fest promised to be an incredible night of live reggae and real hip-hop!  As to be expected, the event did not disappoint.  The evening music event, brought to you by Myxed Up Creations and Yolo Rum, took place at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom.  The event took over both sides of the venue as Cervantes The Other Side hosted the reggae and dancehall acts, and the Grand Ballroom was on lock for all of the hip-hop.  The whole venue was rockin', the place was wall to wall people, and the sights, sounds, and smells of a party filled the air!

 

          

 

DJ BushyBush warmed up the Other Side crowd with some reggae and dancehall classics in advance of the headliners.  And then it was time for the heavy hitters to take the stage.  International recording artist Mr. Vegas in his first Denver appearance, as well as Edley Shine of Born Jamericans took their turns delighting a packed dance floor.  

                     

 

Meanwhile, back in the Ballroom, the crowd warmed up with Oriiion.  After Oriiion set the stage, it was up to BurntMD to keep the crowd moving, followed up by DJ Uplifter and Selecta Nikka T who all brought their own energy to the show with their mix of reggae, top 40, and hip-hop influence.  As the focus of the crowd started to shift from the party to the show on center stage, you could feel the energy in the air as the crowd started to press to the front for their opportunity to rock out with hip-hop legends Pharcyde!  Touring as Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde Live, they whipped the crowd up into a frenzy, and ran through a laundry list of tracks from one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time, with classics such as "Passin' Me By", "Oh Sh*t", "Ya Mama", and "Soul Flower", all from Bizarre Ride II.  They then proceeded down memory lane with a performance of "Runnin'" from the album Labcabincalifornia, as well as other hip-hop anthems such as "OPP" by Naughty by Nature, and "Scenario" by Tribe Called Quest.

 

After the Pharcyde, it was time for KRS-One, "The Teacha", to get class in session.  KRS opened his set with a freestyle, and then got the crowd involved, as we all joined in by shouting that the real hip-hop is "Ova Here".  From there we started our journey with KRS-One into tracks like "Step Into A World" and "MC's Act Like They Don't Know".  His set always seemed to push the perfect blend of old, new, and unrehearsed, and true to his conscious style navigated in and out of planned and unplanned verses and live off the top segues through many of the tracks that brought him to the level of hip-hop elite.  With a razor sharp clarity, detailed annunciation, and perfect definition his voice pushed the crowd forward with more of the classics, from the echoing shouts of "Sound Of Da Police", to other favorites like "The MC", and Boogie Down Productions hit "Criminal Minded".  KRS-One was a true master of ceremonies as he continually kept the crowd hyped and involved, and urged his fans to be a part of the experience. 

 

All in all MORE20 was an incredible weekend long experience!  With so much going on in the stores, and then an amazing music event to tie the weekend together, who could ask for anything more!?!?  And thanks so much to all of the Myxed Up Family that celebrated with us, and made MORE20 a special weekend that was so much fun for everyone!  It makes all of us here at Myxed Up Creations very excited for next years installments of 4/20 and MORE20!  This year is going to be hard to beat, but something tells me that we can do it!  Stay tuned Myxed Up Nation!
