EVERY Monday night in March is a 6 hour hip hop extravaganza, as we invite the freshest and the best to invade our weekly Pond Jams. Soundpond.net is by locals, for locals, and all about backing it up with action, not words. We’ve invited four of Adelaides finest in their scenes to curate a jam, showcasing the best this city has to offer across a range of hip-hop genres. Interviews, DJ sets, live mc’s, live production, it’s all happening.
Soundpond has history of supporting all aspects of hip hop, from our first year when the Funkoars performed live in the studio, through to sponsoring a huge range of events. Most recently, Vacant Space (a city showcase of hip hop and street art), the “Freestyle Sessions” (SA’s largest ever b-boy battle), and inviting in leading graff artists to do a wall at Level 8 (our 3rd bday, top floor of a city car park, check the event vid here). We’ve always welcomed live hip hop in the studio and are stoked to be stepping up for the hip hop massive.
JUST CHECK THE NAMES ON THE LINEUPS BELOW
Feb 25th – J Castell’s urban flavour showcase.
If you haven’t watched the new J Castell show on Soundpond.net, cohosted by emerging local MC MSO, you’re missing out on one of the most dynamic, interactive, hilarious, and knowledgeable new shows in the state. Their valentines day edition alone was a showcase of old school romance jams, backed up by an acoustic set from a touring New Zealand duo. We kind of sprung the idea of them warming up for March last minute, so they haven’t got a lineup to us yet, but expect a heavily modern-American influenced urban flavor.
6pm-8pm Reggaeton & Latino
10pm-12 Hip Hop
Confirmed guests : Carla Way, Trojahn & Ma, Sundalo, J-Castell, MSO, + more
March 4th – Gratifly’s no doubt glitch and wonk influenced showcase.

March 18th – Trumps
March 25th – Amayze
Look forward to a weekly article reppin a bio on each act in March!
