Prodigy – Poison (f**k yeah)

Next week im there, UK tour is in full effect for these foundations of my clubbing youth. Memories of playing this album on loop in the Smaje’s house thinking we were the baddest of the bad! I cant remember the first time i heard them but i do remember the feeling i got from the twisted synths and bass, BIG!
Dedicated to the Jilted Jenna Ration ;P

Not on our telly!!

Thai advert for an Opticians i do believe….lmao a yogurt bank! Actually throwing up now at thought of cold, smeg lodged in my throat :(

Muh Muh Monday Mixtape – Robot Koch

Did i completely not do a Monday Mixtape last week? C’est terribles well hopefully todays find will make up for it. Robot Koch first of all has the best name. (more…)


Oh i am ashamed, thought i loved him so, much more than anyone i know…but how could i when i didnt even know about this track. Q-tip and Prince?!?! (more…)

New N.E.R.D – Soldier

Thanks to Bapenerd for the link to this performance from N.E.R.D live on Jimmy Falon. Im not really feeling the song bar the chorus im guessin with Santogold? After Snoop Dogg jumping on the indian dubstep train its hard to not see this as another attempt to cash in on a UK style that is being represented quite credibly else where. Kid British spring to mind when listening to Soldier and that whole London is cool for being punk/ska chic is blatently being referenced….. the band is tight but what do you expect from the Roots….overall im thinking its no ‘Everyone Nose‘ but interesting enough for song of the day….enjoy!

Last night @ Ape, Manchester Apollo

APe APollo

My first time at Ape ( i know don’t ask) and ill tell you what it wasnt to bad at all. The Apollo Manchester, is a wicked old skool venue and running about behind stage with Fierce looking for alcohol and reminiscing in between sets in various dressing rooms or where ever was way to much fun. (more…)

Last night in Belgrade…

Dam you internet people are so quick. Andrea3thousand over there on Youtube already has a little piece of the action from last night @ Club Plastic in Belgrade up online…of course Kabuki, as always, smacked it…this was the end to our very fun set, i do believe its a classic. Big up Lady heres to us making a million from our dnb dance….when we decide what its gonna be :P

ps. Big up the girl who came from Macedonia (which is over 6 hours away from Belgrade on a train) just to party with us last night. Massive maximum respect missus, hope you got home safe :)

Watching…. Stereo Panda Advert!

Stereo Panda Blaxploitation promo video from Stereo Panda on Vimeo.

Can those Pandas get any cooler? Obviously their french which is more than the half of it but then they make all those dope tee prints and preppy street wears, in bold bright colours and patterns, exclusive and limited edition artist designed shirts… Answergin my own question, yes they just got way cooler (how the fuck does this happen!) thanks to their Spring/Summer range promo’d in this wicked video from Tenas and featuring music from the Funktastics….Hey you there on the video look very familiar, what was your name again… lol!

Listening….. Johnny Miller

I was gonna call this post Jus Listening to Johnni Miller but that would have been very cheesy..good but cheesy…so i didnt. Instead im shutting up and letting this gorgeous remix from Mr Miller of the Radiohead tune ‘Everythings in its right place’….song for the day and a different flex im liking a lot. Love ya bro x

p.s. Im totally loving Soundcloud, check it out music makers looks and works so smooth!

No substitute for teenage mums….

Im reading the Sun whilst the Shifters are comping my vocals. As usual im scouring the paper for all the smaller stories filling the gaps on the more jumbled pages. Some classics as always, i think today this is my favourite.

‘Devons Torbay Care trust are on blast after giving out six inch plastic willies to teenage mums, they were handed out as gifts during a sex education workshop. Kevin Neal, father of 15 year old mum Kezzi, said ‘We consider this extremely offensive’
Would they rather their daughters were given the real thing, isn’t that what got them in that ‘Chlamydia discussion group‘ in the first place?
I find it extremely offensive that i work my ass off everyday, have used contraception and common sense since becoming sexually active and yet i will never be given a free dildo or get a tax break for not having a child before i was mentally or financially capable?
I say free six inch plastic willies for all girls, from the age of 11 in inner city areas, masturbation is liberation from a benefit state!

Breathe in, aaaaaaaaa. Calm!

Listening – Fannypack

Im in Reading, working with Engine-Earz on a vocal version of Kali Yuga, woop woop! Got up bright and early this morning to catch the train from Manchester which was lovely. I had a table, charged my phone, caught up on emails, twittered when i had signal and alighted the train at my destination cool, calm and collected…. That was until i walked past a rather portly young man who took it upon him self to claim very loudly that i had a huge camel toe! (the rest of this story was twittered and to painful to repeat!)
Cue song for the day and a trip to H&M to buy a long vest… LMAO its Cameltoe from the glorious but unfortunately no more Fannypack!

Listening to… Hot 8 Brass Band

Since lunch yesterday with the lovely Riot Jazz fellas i have been in mardi gras mode. Two footing around my kitchen and walkin up and down my middle room like im following a float! This is just one of the skanking tunes im listening to and this track is getting the honour of the song for the day…’Rock ya body from side to side’ its Tru ThoughtsHot 8 Brass Band and ‘Whats my name’.

Enjoy Jenna Ral G

Yelle – A cause des garcons

I was thinking about getting rid of my Reebok Pumps that i hardly wear until i seen this video. The French are so f**king cool even when their whack…How do they do that? Another note on this video, which if you haven’t guessed by now is totally the song for the day, does anyone else think the guy that starts off in the middle looks like Spor?? Just an observation not a diss….. Hasta!

I want this more than sex right now!

Seeing as i wont be having a man in my bed next weekend, as planned, i want to go to bed in a Hamburger. Lying in between fake folds of cheese and resting my head on pickle and tomato pillows has to be way more fun than twisting up white sheets and being sweated on (sigh). (more…)

Enter Shikari – Sorry your not a winner!

Rock the fook out people its the glorious weekend, 7 days since i broke my 9 month drought and 30 days til The Qemists Live begin our support slot on the Enter Shikari European tour. I think this song for the day is more than appropriate cause i am really sorry if your not a winner!

Peace n Love… The Jenna Ral G

La Roux x Skream

Woke up with this echoing in my head, only right then that its the song for the day. Massive late night early morning shout goes out to Skream on the remix…goes off each and eveytime. Question : Anyone else think La Roux looks like Tilda Swinton and David Bowies love child? That is some hot ass DNA right there, congrats on being stunning and eccentrically talented :)

Much love, Jenna Ral G x

Quad for all and all for Quad!

Last week i checked out a fellow Twitterers twitpic link to a shot he’d just taken on his IPhone with a new app, QuadCamera. It looked sick and immediately i ran as fast as my internet connection would take me to the Itunes online store to go get me a piece of the action… (more…)

Snoop Dogg Millionaire

Ok so i have no idea who sent me this didn’t recognise the email at all but i welcome all suggestions for Song For The Day…which by the way i have stopped putting in the title cause i wasn’t happy with how it looked…This must have just hit the streets yesterday as its all over the relevant blog networks this morning (, Mista Jam will also be playing it tonight on 1xtra, his show kicks of at 7pm. But i got it right here right now…. (more…)

Muh Muh Monday Mixtape – The Steppahs

Two weeks ago i was en route to Japan, waiting outside terminal 2 at Heathrow and this mix came on my Itunes shuffle. Labeled with a name i’d never heard before, i was at a loss as to how it came to be on my playlist and who it was by. Tune after tune had me bopping and skanking outside Costa (in a incognito way as i was on my own and waiting for the rest of the troops to arrive), i even hollered rewind at one point completely forgetting where i was. I blasted this mix everywhere i went in Japan, walked in a bad man stylee with it through Shibuya, Twittered about it from my hotel in Osaka, leaked it from my headphones on the Bullet train, i honestly couldn’t get enough. I trust this will have the same effect on you, play it loud and proud whilst travelling to school, college, work or ya mamas house! The Muh Muh Monday Mixtape from the glorious Manchester representa’s The Steppahs.

The Steppahs – Mixedupinnit Part 5

Enjoy ;) Jenna Ration G

Song for sunday – Yppah

‘Those moments, precious and golden
memories, fond routines
replayed over and over
soft touches, hushed closeness
this is real….’

Song FT Day – Mama Cass

Since i been away in Japan i haven’t been smoking that much green…in fact for the first time in like 6 years i’ve not had any for a total of 5 days. Shock horror, i know but im not feeling to bad from it at all nor am i craving it as much as i was before i headed east. One thing i’ve noticed apart from being ridiculously grumpy on occasions (sorry Sam!) is that im dreaming again. Glorious technicolour dreams filled with people i’ve just met and others who i haven’t seen in years. Thoughts i’ve not had in ages are saturating my sleeping hours, regurgitating places and feelings i’d completely forgotten or just found.
Last nights dream was a mix of old and new, set to the backdrop of a film starring the two Coreys, Dream a little Dream. When i awoke this song with the same name echoed in my ears…I wonder if he dreamed a little dream of me too?
