I lost count, but Sneaker Summit has been doin’ it for many moons. I joined up with Kadoma & DJ Oakcliff in the early days (my first set was at the Meridian, Downtown HTX) and I’ve been on board ever since. Sneaker Summit hosted in some really incredible venues Toyota Center, NRG Stadium, & Minute Maid park, with a brick and mortar sneaker shop open daily in Upper Kirby HTX that hosts more intimate events. Winter 2019 show was held at Bayou City Event Center, this is the space that feels most at home. All of the Summit staff and DJs were present this Sunday with a live performance from Bun B (UGK). Bun surprised the crowd by bringing out a few of Htown’s Hip Hop icons such as Lil Flip & the Sauce Twins. I followed with a classic Boom Bap & Trap DJ set, preparing the sneakerheads for DJ Michael 5000 Watts (Swisha House) and his open mic freestyle set. Watts and crew are celebrating 20 years with Swisha House Records (*prayer hands). Go HTOWN!
Stay tuned for the Summer 2019 show:
