Youth 'O8

What a day Saturday it turned out to be for Joe! First it was Youth '08 and then stopping by at KL's latest skate shop - Push. But first ,Youth'08 which turned out to be a lot of fun for Joe. First of all, we weren't sure what to expect from this event. It was split into several halls within PWTC. The 3rd floor was where all the action was with nearly all of the KL's indie brands out in full force; tshirt designers, marketing arms, fashion and accessories, graffitti artistes etc. Joe had a great time talking to some of the young entreprenuers there. Some even did a few impromptu "pitches" to him for future collabos. Pop Malaya, Don't Panic, I heart was cool to meet up with you guys! Great work and we look forward to seeing more from you this year!

Joe performed on the 4th Floor on that Saturday instead of 3rd which was why most missed out on it. But Joe was invited by who were there to promote their debit cards which was he also set up his KL Cap booth in their area. Thank You! :)
Nevertheless, the few that were there on the 4th Floor at 5pm enjoyed a very intimate set from Joe with his brother DJ Iman. Our hearts warmed to see some B-Boys who took some time out from the B-Boy competition happening on the 3rd floor to show some love. By the end of the set, Joe had his crowd captivated by his personal performance. Some were even lucky enough enough to be given KL caps by Joe himself. Enjoy the pics below!

They were later joined by some of his B-Boy friends who managed to come up directly after battling downstairs at the 3rd floor.
The boys got the crowd excited as they showed off their skills.
DJ Iman, flashes a smile for us after the set!
Joe made some friends too. Posing here with the MIC - Malaysian Indian Congress
Joe found his cousins who were also there promoting their accessories line A Smack of JellyFish on the 3rd Floor. A Smack of Jellyfish belongs to Joe's cousin Liyana who set it up with her cousins and friends. For those of you who remember her, Liyana used to do lots of shows with Joe as his singer and has contributed to many of his Too Phat tracks including "If I Die Tonight"
Thanks to B-Boy Zero and friends for showing some love that day.
