Last night saw Shakinda throw down with some of the biggest names in Irish Hip Hop Culture. The premier of Chris Eva's feature length documentary "Love, Peace, Unity and Having Fun" was screened in the Catalyst Arts Centre in Belfast. Shakinda contributed a guest edit to the film and then Vjed with a live mash up of the movie along with Djs Concept, The Fat Controller, Sally, MCs Kat, Beemicksee, Miles, the legendary Belfast City Breakers and the pure riotous Team Fresh. All this with an architectural across the Gallery's roof garden onto a derelict building, and graf from Jester made for a very special evening.
Shakinda's commitment to visual culture and development of the VJ art form has lead to him establishing a unique set of video tutorials in one of his favourite tools Quartz Composer. Hoping to breakdown some of the barriers to this powerful visual programming language Shakinda has entitled it "The Irishman's Guide to Quartz".
