KONA NUGGETS x PRIDE H

Releasing this Saturday, February 27th.

This Saturday’s release is quite ambiguous — in simpler terms — open to more than one interpretation. The graphic on our newest release is a play on both the Denver Nugget’s logo, as well as a type of strain of fine-grade, high-octane sticky-icky known simply as Kona Gold. One of our island’s best kept secrets, in contrast with the all too cliché Maui Wowie. The graphic on the front features a snow-capped mountain, with FITTED, Aloha Served Daily and the Fitted crest beneath it. Back graphic hit sees the same mountain with Kona Nuggets resting beneath it. A tonal pakalolo leaf appears on the right sleeve as well.

Coexisting with the Kona Nuggets tee is a new Pride H New Era. Simple and sweet, all black with a white Pride H logo, crest and crown.

KIMIE – DISTANT TRAVELER *HD VIDEO*

Friday, June 5th, 2009 by

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to attend Reggae Cafe’s debut video taping which was held exclusively at their Dole Cannery location. Kona born-and-raised Kimie performed a few songs, co-hosted the show with Big Koa and debuted her new video as well. All in all it was a very cool show with a very ambient-type climate, great people, onolicious food and good laughs. Above is a new video shot Unplugged-style by Hawaii’s own Kai Media. You gotta love High Definition! Check the jump for an interview as well.

This morning we had the privilege to attend the first video taping of Island 98.5′s weekly Reggae Cafe show, held exclusively at the Dole Cannery near Costco. Kona’s own illustrious Kimie Kauikeolani Miner and her band performed a few songs and also played co-host to Reggae Cafe / Island 98.5′s Fat Joe (not the one who told you to lean back either) which turned out to be a fun and lively behind-the-scenes taste of a live taping. Very chill, ambient mood / setting with some ‘ono pupus courtesy of Roy’s, serving the infamous green bottles along bottled water in a flask-like device. We bullshit you not. The actual performance was very dope, Kimie can definitely sing. Her style of music could be summed up as a cross between Jill Scott, India Arie and a mixture of Hawaiian roots reggae. Skank with it! Please check for more photos including a music video of one of Kimie’s more recent performances after the jump (Sorry, no video footage from today. No video taping or flash cameras were allowed. But they will be airing this on KHON 2 sometime in August!) Big shouts to Jake from Pay Day Entertainment!
