WHO IS D2MG HIP HOP SOCIETY

Dance. DJ. MC. Graffiti

Hip-Hop started as a movement in the South Bronx in the 1970s and has become a medium for originally bringing people together from the harshest of economic, social or racial

backgrounds.


D2MG is the oldest university based hip-hop society in the Southern Hemisphere. We are a non-profit organisation centred at the University of New South Wales whose mission is to inspire individuals to share this authentic hip-hop culture, embracing personal identity and creativity. Embodying the four elements of Hip-hop (Dance, DJ, MC and Graffiti), we hope to bring a sense of joy and appreciation within our activities, which ultimately foster peace and improves the lives of others in unity.


Our goals

  1. To bring together, educate and empower all individuals within our community through hip-hop

  2. To provide a safe environment for young people to express themselves, have fun and form meaningful bonds

  3. To form Australia’s most renowned hub of resources to assist in the education and spread of authentic hip-hop culture.

OUR EVENTS AND PERFORMANCES

JUST DANCE

 Just Dance is an intra-UNSW team-based battle and showcase event that utilises unique battle formats and performances to bring the UNSW dance community together. Its goals and aims are to create an event for everyone, no matter what level of experience, to have fun and just dance! 


Just Dance vol. 4 was our biggest Just Dance yet, with over 80 attendees. We’re keen to continue the hype for next year’s Just Dance vol. 5.

LEVELS

Levels is our annual, high scale dance battle and showcase night consisting of a 2v2 Open Styles battle, 7-to-smoke battle, showcases, cyphers (dance circles), performances and so much more!

Our Level XIV last year proved to be a success, with 200+ battlers and audience. We had Level XIV happening on 14 September 2019 - celebrating 14 years of this prestigious battle event.

 

D2MG CREW

D2MG dance crew trains their dance technique and skill weekly in preparation for performances. Team cohesiveness and bonding is very important for D2MG crew and we aspire to provide a platform where lifelong friendships can be made. Examples of performances this year include: 


  • Crossover Dance Studio showcases (e.g UPStaged, The Crossover 9, Unification) 

  • Performances for external university society battles

 

DJ, MC & GRAFFITI

DJ 

DJ is an important aspect of hip hop culture that D2MG has been maintaining. We have worked very closely with Damus Chu aka. DJ Dumplings, who has over 15 years experience in DJing for weddings, corporate, formals and dance battles. He has passed on his knowledge through to D2MG members through various workshops over the past few years. 


MC 

This year, we have been expanding our MC scene, reaching out to Sydney MC Madame Wu. She has released 2 albums with Elise Graham and and is now working on a solo EP with Swedish producer Dunkel. Madame Wu has taught a total of 3 MC workshops with D2MG last year, focusing on lyric writing, song structure and vocal delivery in rap. 


Graffiti

D2MG still has plans to grow the Graffiti scene this year. This year we have a Graffiti workshop with Mistery, representing Krosswerdz, and will be going over history and graffiti basics. We have done graffiti boards in the past, allowing members to tag their name on it.
