First of all introducing, Emcee of the night
MC Jazz Ivy (Zulu Nation)
Superman Ivy, born and raised in New York, the Mecca of Hip-hop, fell into the rhythm and melody of the traditional African music since childhood. Other than music, Ivy also took interest in literature, as it helps him to express his thoughts in writing.
*He is good in rapping!*

Next we have the guy who pump the music loud for the crowd
DJ Dust
DJ Dust aka Bboy Dust formally known as one of the Native Old School Bboy In Korea. He was inspired by many DJs from all over the world, hence the decision of being a dancer to the man behind the turntable. Quickly he gained his respect from the different famous DJs in both Eastern and Western countries.
