We're off to Lae in Papua New Guinea to meet a local beatmaker and producer, Bata Jakes. He's a young man who's making hip hop in the Pacific and taking it to the next level. 

We'll hear some great sounds from DJ D-Vixx Selekta, giving reggae the Port Vila flava.  For our 'Klassic Kona' this week where we dip into the island music vaults of days gone by to revisit some of the biggest tunes released by Pacific artists, we'll hear a great 2008 track from Samoan vocalist, Ladi6.  And to kick things off for this week Pacific Break, we'll hear some island style Micronesian hiphop flow.
