The Louder Than a Bomb Live Set is a musical literary experiment that aims to cover the history of Hip Hop culture in an original, fresh and funky style. The Louder Than a Bomb Live Set is a mix between a history lesson Hip Hop and a show. The performance offers a peculiar vision on the birth of this culture and its musical and lyrical revolution that led to its conquering of popular culture and youth imagery world wide. In a one hour set, u.net illustrates the evolution of this music genre from an underground subculture rooted in urban environment, to a mainstream phenomenon with a large following in suburban America, highlighting the anecdotes, people and technology critical for its development. Similarly, DJ Stile masterfully uses vinyls to give evidence of that process on a musical level, embellishing the selection with his cutting and mixing skills. The live set is made up of several sections (The Jams, Hip Hop on Vinyl; Technology, Def Jam, Class of 1986, Latin Quarters) in which u.net and DJ Stile create a collage of images, digressions, time shifts, hooks and openings as in the cut & paste of a rap production.
