Kvart u petak, 20.04. otvara svoja vrata, Radio 808 ulazi unutra i zajedno vam pripremaju cjelodnevno druženje!

Svako otvaranje zaslužuje mnogo pažnje, posebno kad se radi o jednom od najboljih mjesta za izlazak u Zagrebu. Kvart, smješten u prostoru stare klaonice u Heinzlovoj 66, za otvaranje sezone je odabrao 20. travnja, a Radio 808 skuplja svoje DJ-e i DJ-ice, prijatelje i poznanike i okupira Kvartovski interijer i eksterijer. Otvaranje sezone shvaćaju jako ozbiljno, pa su stoga odlučili napraviti nešto po čemu će taj dvadeseti dan travnja ostati zapisan u povijesti zagrebačke klaberske scene.

“Katz brings to life the vivid art and social worlds of hip-hop’s most important and understudied pioneers: the DJs.” – Tricia Rose, author of Black Noise and Hip Hop Wars

“If there was one book I had to get on DJ culture, it would be this one!” – DJ Qbert

“Groove Music is an extensive look at the DJ, the heartbeat of hip-hop culture. Mark Katz successfully documents the art form that has defined me as an artist and human being. Props to him for exposing the world to what we do with turntables.” – Rob Swift, turntablist

A classic hip-hop moment was made Sunday night as Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg closed out the 2012 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. Two two rap heavyweights called in a few favors and brought a lost legend back to life on the main stage at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Opening with their classic “The Next Episode,” the two west coast legends ran through hits such as “Gin & Juice,” “Deep Cover,” and “Ain’t Nuttin’ But A G Thang.” The first break featured a tribute to the late Nate Dogg, as Kurupt joined the stage for a performance of his classic “Ain’t No Fun” while a collage was featured on the main screen. Warren G also made an appearance before Snoop Dogg went into a solo set of his dual hits “I Wanna Rock” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” Uncle Snoop then called on Wiz Khalifa to perform their “Young, Wild & Free” smash collaboration.

The wave of young talent continued as Kendrick Lamar joined for his new single with Dr. Dre “The Recipe” as the two performed the song for the first-time ever. After brief silence, the violent sounds of “What Up Gangsta” blared as 50 Cent and Tony Yayo joined in for a G-Unit medley of “P.I.M.P.” and “In Da Club.” What followed was the most shocking moment of the evening, after much rumors a hologram of the late Tupac Shakur appeared out of darkness as Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg each stood on the edges of the stage as the hologram figure performed “Hail Mary,” and “2 of Amerikkka’s Most Wanted.” An emotional moment for fans and viewers who streamed online. If the brief return of the Tupac Shakur wasn’t enough, the sounds of “I Need A Doctor” began to play as Eminem appeared on stage to perform his feature on Dr. Dre’s single before the two rocked the crowd with “Forget About Dre” and “Til’ I Collapse.”

Without any stalls, the high energy show concluded with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre closing out the evening with “What’s My Name” and “Still D.R.E.”
