Where We’re From: Rise of L.A. Underground Hip-Hop [Documentary]
Today marks the release of “Where We’re From: Rise of L.A. Underground Hip Hop” via Shout! Studios. This is a first-hand look at the fertile but often overlooked scene that produced legendary West Coast figures in hip-hop that made impacts globally. A labor of love, the documentary was produced and directed by DJ Bonds and DJ Breeze, who were the founders and producers of Club Elements. From roughly 1998 – 2002, Elements went from a underground club night to hosting showcases at the El Rey Theater for national acts to even producing live events for Fat Beats and Rawkus Records.
