Daily staff report
VAIL CO, Colorado
Special to the DailyDJ RIPM is a regular on the Denver club circuit. He performs at Sandbar in West Vail Saturday night along with a handful of other DJ's including Opio from Hieroglyphics, Denver hip hop artist Styles Eternal and local female DJ ANGIE MUZiC.

The Sandbar in West Vaill will host four hip hop acts Saturday night. Opio (of Heiroglyphics and Souls of Mischief) will perform along with DJ RIPM, Styles Eternal and DJ ANGIE MUZic beginning at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.

As a member of both Souls of Mischief and Hieroglyphics, Opio pulls double duty as both producer and MC. A self-proclaimed Child of the ’70s and raised in a musical household, Opio knew early on that hip-hop was his love.

“My father was a musician I was always exposed to all different kinds of music – funk, soul, classical, a lot of jazz, reggae and rock. Hip-hop was just the combination of all that to me,” he said.

Throughout the early 80s, he breakdanced, deejayed and emceed, fully immersed in the culture that he still loves. As a teen, Opio hooked up with local rappers Tajai and A Plus, whom he met through Casual, another MC who was Opio’s classmate and neighbor. The three instantly clicked and began recording together, soon adding fourth MC Phesto Dee to form the group Souls of Mischief. Together with Del the Funky Homosapien, Casual, Domino and Pep Love, the crew Hieroglyphics was born. The rest is history

DJ RIPM is a regular on the Denver club circuit. Denver based Styles Eternal is Jessica Jones and Ray Bones. Local music producer DJ ANGIE MUZiK will also perform.
