Although the BEAT RESEARCH crew throw down every Monday at Enormous Room, they’re bigger than that. Check DJ C, Boston’s own M.I.A. link (his “URAQT” remix was licensed for an official XL 12-inch remix), who begins a 12-stop European tour next week. Mr. C, a/k/a JAKE TRUSSELL, will be bringing his crew’s patented Boston bounce to Austria, Ireland, Israel, and Belgium, and Circuits, for one, wishes him all the best. And though it takes real effort to keep up with the speedy local hip-hop scene, you can catch the Cliffs Notes version this Saturday when local promoters SIX ONE SEVEN throw the 2006 Hip-Hop Awards at John Hancock Hall in the Back Bay Events Center, 180 Berkeley Street. Presenters include ESOTERIC, CHECKMARK, DTENSION, ENVY, and BIG HEK. For more info, head to Massive Records, 1105 Mass Ave in Cambridge. Most definitely, this thing will be all the way live. The show starts at 6:17 pm. Of course.
