B-Side HNL 18: Ohtoro

Honolulu-based beatmaker Ohtoro speaks on his splendorous “Kumamoto” LP, an independently-produced, Japan-inspired sonic collage and hip hop tour de force. We delve into David Ehrenreich‘s “Heavy Dreamers”, a spectacular short that features visual artists from around the world summoned to Honolulu for the annual Pow! Wow! Hawaii event. Rounding out this episode is Bells and Robes‘ music video “Duality”, courtesy of HIP Video Promo.

I am a lifelong Honoluluan whose true calling is to tell the stories of others, whether through photos, film, video, audio or the written word. Here is a collection of my works – some previously published in periodicals like Billboard, the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Weekly, though most of what you read or view here has never been seen before.
