Ai Pohaku Rocking Oahu...


Omni Unlimited Presents Big Island boys 'Ai Pohaku January 25th @ Hawaiian Hut Oahu. Be sure to get your presale tickets cause this show will sell out. For those that don't know who Ai Pohaku is check out their myspace. In my opinion they are one of the most talented music groups to come out of the Big Island. So show some love of Hawaii's talent and be there Jan. 25th 2008. ~JYK

Where Are You Mr. Empire?

OK people it's been a while since I've done an update. Good thing is we've slacked on the updates so long we have a lot of stuff to post..Sooo Heeerre We Go.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Last month was the 1st trip ever to the city that never sleeps. Good friend from Kauai E.T. had the massive hookups at the clubs. We checked out Tao, Revolution, Jet, and a couple other places that we can't remember... The walk to Tao is pretty interesting. Jet was raging but my favorite club is Revolution. Check out the interactive tables you can draw whatever you want with your finger.Big Mahalos to Mindy and Brian for a place to sleep and the rides everywhere. Erik T. for the hookups, and Dom for helping promote.

808 Empire x Downr Collabo
Downr (the artist formally known as Downtimer) had some of his art shown recently at Hilo's 50/50 art show. Show featured a couple of his sig. style painted decks. 808 Empire will soon be releasing our 2nd collabo with Downr. Here's a sneak peak. Once we work out the minor details it'll be ready to ship in 08. In the mean time check out our retailers page to pick up our current gear..

That's it for today. Be sure to check out the new Buti Groove store. They Now Carry 808 Empire Clothing. Mahalo and Enjoy ~ JYK
