SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE at Wild Days / Recap

Last Weds was such a vibe.

It felt great conducting SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE, which we haven’t done in a minute, and judging by how many of you came and the responses for those who attended that energy was accepted and given back.

We’d like to thank Eaton Workshop and Wild Days for hosting. And, as always, a huge big-ups to my brothers Sound of the City for blowing the roof off!

We’ve got more coming as a part of our 10 Year Anniversary programming, so stay tuned, and to check out the full recap click:

SHAOLIN JAZZ x DCDW Album Design Cover Contest

Calling all creatives! To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of SHAOLIN JAZZ and our first mixtape: “SHAOLIN JAZZ The 37th Chamber,” we’re partnering with DC Design Week to launch a very exciting contest.

And in the spirit of our anniversary we’ll be conducting our second SHAOLIN JAZZ Album Cover Design Contest and if you recall our first one, back in 2011, we were fortunate enough to have received 37 (yes, 37) amazing entries from talented designers from around the world.

Originally released in 2011 by Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones – “SHAOLIN JAZZ The 37th Chamber” is a jazz and hip-hop infused collection of songs that features Wu Tang Clan acappellas that are cleverly fused with instrumentals from select jazz greats. And to celebrate our 10 year anniversary we’re asking for your creative talents.

Winners will receive SHAOLIN JAZZ merchandise, DC Design Week swag, with more prizes to be announced.

The deadline for submissions is Friday September 10, 2021, winners will be announced on Friday October 1st, and a select number of submissions will be exhibited alongside works from our design archive in the DC Design Week 2021 Launch Party and Pop-Up Exhibition celebrating our 10 years.
