Wave Waikiki
gets Majik-al

DID YOU get a taste of "Chocolate" last night? Trehaus Productions and Marshall Entertainment kicked off the new party at Wave Waikiki with European drum-n-bass artists Stakka & Skynet in town. Also on the wheels last night: DJs A-2-Z, Sean Kamano, Scottie Soul and Sovern-T.

Things won't let up next weekend, either, when J.Majik touches down from the land of tea and cookies to hold it down with the Eastside Wrecking Crew and Nija Dred. Call 941-0424 for more about this 18-and-over event ...

GET OUT tonight and go do something you probably haven't done in a while: Go bowling! From 9 to 11:30 p.m. every Tuesday you can toss balls around to funk, soul and other rare grooves at the Bowl-O-Drome next to the Old Stadium Park during what's called "Soul Bowl."

Once you pay cover and rent some shoes, enjoy 25-cent bowling as DJs Hairpie and G.Rex keep the records spinning. Call 949-6668 for info ...

I REALLY HOPE local girl Yasmeen Sulieman gets a warm welcome when she comes home next weekend. The 1998 Brown Bags to Stardom winner has spent the last two years working on her debut album, "When Will It Be Me," which hits stores Sept. 17. She'll be in town to play I-94's "Free Show" along with Motown Records artist Jené. Tickets for that concert can only be won on the radio, so keep listening for your shot to attend.

After listening to an advance copy of the album, it sounds like MCA Records has really spent the time to develop Yasmeen's talent. The 19-year-old worked with a number of producers on this record, and it shows. "When Will It Be Me" is heavy on the ballads, but press a remix or two for club DJs and get her featured on other hip-hop joints, and Yasmeen could be Hawaii's own Ashanti ...

LOOKS LIKE Club One Eleven is going to shut its doors for good this Saturday. Before they can do that, however, Double-O-Spot will host one final event at the venue. Making the trip from London is trance DJ Dave Ralph, along with New York's Empress and Berlin's Diamond. Representing the 808 state Saturday night are DJs Daniel J, G-Spot, Ikon, Kause, PSI, Technique and other special guests.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Saturday at 111 N. King St. Tickets range from $10 to $20; call 591-3500 ...
