The Adam B Experience (ABX) Podcast #36

Adam: "A quick disclaimer: I recorded this episode of The Adam B Experience at two in the morning after a day where I wrote and/or edited seven feature stories, so if I sound a little crazier than normal... wait, what am I talking about, how could I possibly be any crazier than normal? You expect me to be this way, and you also expect great underground hip-hop from this podcast. This month's episode of The Adam B Experience won't disappoint on either front, and even includes a few artist debuts! Enjoy!

Soce The Elemental Wizard - Barrier Breaking MC

I’ll admit it, I probably should have been aware of Soce (pronounced So-Say) The Elemental Wizard a while ago. He’s a part of the NYC hip-hop scene and we have a lot of friends in common. Ironically, it was Iowa’s own Coolzey who, in a way, introduced us. During the 12 week run of Coolzey songs on this site one of them, week ten’s “Graduation Day,” was produced by Soce. Soce tagged me in a Facebook post about it, and alakazam, suddenly I was introduced to the wild world of Soce The Elemental Wizard. This week I caught up with him to find out more about that wild world, including his love of wizardry, how being openly gay has affected the way he’s been received within hip-hop, and how he scored the best website name on the planet.

About Step Up 3D

New York's intense street dancing underground comes alive in eye-popping Digital 3D in the third installment of the "Step Up" franchise as the raw, passion-fueled culture goes global. A tight-knit group of street dancers, including Luke (Rick Malambri) and Natalie (Sharni Vinson), team up with NYU freshman Moose (Adam Sevani), and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip-hop dancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever.

As the first-ever 3D dance drama, "Step Up 3D" is the first film of its kind to actually be shot in 3D-a rising technical phenomenon that thus far has been reserved for high-concept, big-budget films. It's also the first 3D feature film to be shot entirely in New York City. Acclaimed director Jon M. Chu, who made his feature directorial debut on 2008's box-office hit, "Step Up 2 The Streets," returns to direct.
"Step Up 3D" was written by Amy Andelson & Emily Meyer, based on characters created by Duane Adler. Patrick Wachsberger & Erik Feig of Summit Entertainment produce with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot of Offspring Entertainment.
For additional information, please visit STEP UP 3D will hit theaters on August 6th.
