Manifesto: Red Bull Culture Clash [Photos]


Toronto, ON - The memories of this year’s Manifesto continue to roll in with more photos from HipHopCanada staff photographer Julian Frank at the Red Bull Culture Clash. After a last minute venue change due to weather, Julian traveled to the Molson Amphitheater to see Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation vs Lucky Me (Hudson Mohawke, Lunice, Rustie & Just Blaze) vs Mad Decent (Dillion Francis, DJ Sega, South Rakkas Crew, Paul Devro) vs Toronto All Stars (Starting From Scratch, Lissa Monet, Lindo P, Mensa).

Pioneers from four styles of sound system culture faced off in the city’s first ever cross-genre culture clash. Four DJ crews hailing from Los Angeles, London, New York and Toronto represented their sound on four different stages and sound systems. As they battled it out in front of an exciting a crowd of thousands, Toronto’s All Stars ultimately became the reigning champion of the Red Bull Music Academy World Tour – Culture Clash Toronto stop.

We at HipHopCanada salute all the great DJs who took part in this event and look forward to providing you more DJ related content in our up coming DJ Week. Click the jump for full coverage.

@ThatsBizz is a Senior Contributor for HipHopCanada and a member of the Central Canada team. The nuts and bolts of Jonathon “Bizz” Brown are impressive, but it’s his ability to apply his skills, identify opportunities, adapt to new environments and get the job done that makes him who he is. An engaging combination of education, experience and vision, Brown continues to make his mark on many fronts and plant his flag as a professional on the rise. Entrenched in the urban music scene for more than half a decade, Bizz launched Crack House Radio in 2004. Over the next four years, the online radio show would evolve into a major outlet for Canadian music and hip hop culture in general. Over that time, Bizz interviewed countless artists and professionals including Belly, Bishop, Drake, Classified, Guru, Joell Ortiz, author and gang specialist Michael Chettleburg, Brent (owner of Just Ent) & many others. In 2007, Bizz joined Urbanology Magazine as a staff writer and would go on to contribute dozens of articles over the next three years including a cover story on Classified in 2009. 2007 also saw the launch of Bizz' line of t-shirts reading "Hip Hop Ain't Dead It Lives In The North." Since then, he's toured with Peter Jackson, Busta Rhymes, DJ Dames Nellas, Bishop, Slaughterhouse & Pharoahe Monch and secured a strong following with his column on called "The Fine Print."
