Meet the 5th Element Team
Charlie Taylor - Director/Co-Founder
What's Good? I'm Charlie and I am the Lead Editor and Owner of this fine site. Born in '96, London, England. I am a graduate of Southampton Solent University in Film & Television and I'm also a screenwriter.
Hip-Hop, to me, is a learning tool. To gain life experience from the most extraordinary people who have lived lives I can never imagine living. It is why "The 5th Element" is important to me. Hip-Hop has become a multi-billion dollar industry but people my age have no idea who the pioneers are, how it was all about community and creative ambition. I find that the history of this genre can teach the young people of today in a fun way. Not just about music but about life. I'm not the best dancer, I sure can't MC, DJ or do graffiti. But as a writer, I always appreciate a great story and Hip-Hop itself is a fascinating story I want to document.

Dan - Vice-President
My name is Dan, otherwise known by my Classic Hip Hop Brand across social media.
I'm a music lover with a passion for history and education, setting up my own charity to offer just that, meaningful, engaging education with a Hip Hop twist.
I've also been involved with several project and ventures, within a space of a few years I've presented & DJ my own radio show, produced several interviews with prominent artists such as DMC, Craig G and many UK pioneers, produced my own column in Blues and Soul, made a few waves in the academic world with the introduction of my Hip Hop Diplomacy theory, to which I took on the US state department!
Coming soon to 5E. Peace.
