At first I wasn’t really sure to think, just hearing those twangy island tones wasn’t doing it for me, then the lyrics dropped. This Hawaiian/Oregon hip-hop duo are quickly turning heads in the Southern Cali spot of San Diego, bringing a completely new style of their own to the game with music that almost ‘forces’ you to block out anything but the insane lyrical flow of Pana Jones. They definitely give themselves a very original musical description to match this new style:
Lyrics with substance braided through headnotic rhythms. Hawaii meets Oregon to form Hip Hop duo, Blackwater Refuge.
I see a very bright future for this crew right here, as they work hard to bring a new sound and change the game of hip-hop. One thing is for certain, they are fresh as hell online and nearly impossible to find unless you’ve seen their Facebook Page or their Youtube Channel. After hearing this next track here it was an obvious must for the post, so hope you enjoy “Love For Love” as much as we did.

Doesn’t really sound like much at first, I realize that, but believe me just give it a bit of time and once you hit the 2 minute mark you’ll be bobbin’ your head in complete neglect of the confusing sounds you had encountered from the start. The off-beat background opening the song really pulls much of the creativity, hitting you with a beat that most people are completely not expecting. Now this is the Hawaiian’s first EP entitled “Orinda” which just released on the 1st of this month. Please enjoy “Branches” and check out the rest of the album here.
