The nice guys at Terratag are putting on two nights of Japanese hip-hop. Their Pornograffiti exhibition is still on for a month, and you've also got until the end of October to enter the competition for their t-shirts. Here's the details:

The Terratag 'Pornograffiti' exhibition continues at the Notting Hill Arts Club until November 1st. At the Club on October 4th Terratag in association with Sticky Rice present a night of Japanese Hip Hop.
On the night of October 6th the same crew will be playing at Cargo. There will also be an exhibition and visuals from Terratag.

For both night the line up is as follows:
Live: EN (MC Raita with DJ’s Jif Rock, Kiccio & Kaitaro)
Scratch performance: Yaocho & Tatsuki
Dance performance: Stax Groove
DJ: Hidemasa Seri - Onward International
DJ: 92 aka Kuni - Bestbeats Records

EN: 4 member hip hop crew from Tokyo: MC Raita, DJ Jif Rock, DJ Kiccio & DJ Kaitaro.

MC Raita started his career in 1994 as a member of Diango, a hip hop crew based in Tokyo. He also contributed to "Akumei" and "zoku akumei" Japanese hip hop compilations. He is also responsible for "En", a bi-monthly club night. The Room is one of the leading clubs on the Tokyo music scene.

DJ Jif Rock is a turntablist and has competed in many DJ competitions, such as the DMC world Championships, ITF and the Vestax Extravaganza. He won the Vestax Extravaganza final in 2001 and won third place in the Allies Beatdown World Final last year.

The DJs, Kiccio and Kaitaro set up a record label Rakudo, which just released "kamome wa kamome", an eclectic music compilation in August. It has since created such a buzz that some of the featured artists performed at HMV in Shibuya.
