playin on the radio, 1000 soul songs

Finally its ready to unleash on the world, mine and Dies new tune 1000 soul songs or as its affectionately known up in Gutterfunk HQ 1000 mixdowns ;) Big shout to Mistajam for playin it twice Monday night and huge respect to all the people giving such lovely feedback. Due for release in summer we dedicate this one to the loves that inspired it xx


ya get backpack banged!


RoXXan Birminghams back pak banger has me kinda hooked with this video, ‘every summer do you fly out, work on ya chest and hire a bike out, draw gyal and take pics when the lights out then put em on the net til the hypes out!’ ooooo yes lady please dont change!


100,000 views and counting

Loving the video for True Tiger and P Moneys ‘Slang like this’ yeah i know im late on it but gyal has been busy innit, well deserved view count for these hard working lads. I better party with them soon else their off my christmas list ;)


receipe for single adult life

Dashing down perfectly good looking gurls for the sake of a hook is a recipe for single adult life, and a sign of some much more deep rooted issues, judging by the looks of the hotel room he’s already doing a Lenny (not a good role model bruv)! Either way like most inane misogynistic UK funky tracks this one is set to be big after a proper bashing over the summer, PA’s across the holiday island network had all the gurls singing along to it…oh how very empowering, just remember you were all about getting ‘dashed down’ before he refused to pay for your taxi home after kicking you out of his Premier Inn hotel room ;) Mr M is set for big things if the youtube hits on this video are anything to go by, i wish him the most amount of sexcess and hopefully no STDs, cause then he’d be ‘Rashed Out’…tee hee ;)


perfect sunshine music :)


Had to give this a spin today after hearing another dastardly duo track kick off Benji Bs show on 1xtra last night, its just perfect sunshine music. If you havent heard this absolute gem from Zed Bias and Omar prepare to have your ears audibly seduced. Single Special is out 13th September on Tru Thoughts spread the word whilst making babies to the music ;)


warrior souls!

kabuki_bailey_

London got Blitzkrieg’d this week by my brother from another mother Kabuki promoting his excellent new album Warrior Soul. He passed through DNB TVKool FMSwerve and the hallowed halls of 1Xtra click the links to listen back to him and Bailey chew the fat over the airwaves, twas a very nice show indeed. Watch out for me and Kabuki playing in Romania, Serbia (hopefully) and Japan later on in the year. Shouts to the online crew in Yalding for the pics, ya large ;) (more…)


coming home to you

Caught Hoodman last night at Moho Live why isnt this fella on my tv?? Truely awesome talent who i do not see or hear enough of…remember first hearing in this tune from UK Team and Konny Kon (Broke n £nglish ) when i had my show on 1Xtra. The manny accent and free flowing story line made me home sick as hell living in London. Even though it wasn’t packed in Moho last night (shame on to many people  for a number of different reasons) the vibe was live and everyone who grabbed the mic smashed it big shouts to Siege, Hoodman, Mr Fox & Freestyle for a proper hip-hop evening :P


this is definately donaeo!

AaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiI sound so much  better live!

Finally got a chance to check out two of the tracks from Donaeos‘ live Maida Vale session for Ras Kwame and im blown away. Seriously some people ring truer than ever when backed by live band, especially one as tight as this! Soooo worth a listen if your a Riot Music fan or live music lover im now off to see if i can find the full session online at the BBC i have a feeling though i’ve missed it, boo :( Thank you again soundcloud ;)

Yay, Flights back on the radio :)

Couple of weeks back i was having a lovely time partying in Stuttgart, one morning (after a rather heavy night out) one of the party crew Michael was entertaining us with the music selection from his phone, he started playing a a really old Flight show from her 1Xtra days, i instantly missed ‘The Next Chapter‘. (more…)


Fairplay Annie :)

This might sound weird but i’ve done so many random studio sessions this year that i forget what tracks are out there getting played! When i say random i mean sporadic as in, on my rare days off admist all the travelling and touring with the lovely Qemists from Feb-Sep i ended up at someones studio that i know writing and recording. One of these sessions was with my long time homie Zedios Bizzle way back in erm June, i think :P (more…)

Vaughn loves that christmas cash

It was a year ago next week that i was at Claridges in London for the Fred Claus press junket. I never seen the movie, it looked terrible Vince Vaughn starred as the trouble some brother of one my favourite actors Paul Giamatti who played Santa Claus (sooooooo beneath him). It also had Ludacris as a elf and the kid from Idlewild in it, hence 1X’s interest. Anyways I didn’t pull the short straw of interviewing Vince (who incidentally got paid £20 million for the role), so i couldn’t tell you how genuine he is. Im thinking though its not that genuine thanks to his return in another crappy movie this season, Four Christmas’s. Starring Reese (cheesy chick flick don) Witherspoon, Jon Voight and some others it tells the tale of a couple spending christmas with their divorced parents…Hollywood reality YAWN, wonder how much they all got paid for this monstrosity. Go see at your peril :)


My last day at 1Xtra…


My Last Day @ 1Xtra from Jenna G on Vimeo.


I made a video!!

Still haven’t posted about my departure from 1xtra, no particular reason, theres not alot to say…in the meantime i thought i’d mess around with iMovie and express some feeling through the medium of a video, i love Apple ;) But am having very different feelings about Vimeo which i cannot get to work on here….so in the mean time, please follow the link to my last day on 1Xtra.Twas much fun making, hope you enjoy watching! :)


Going im going gone!

Last show yesterday on 1xtra it was a hard one! Feels weird after fours years knowing i wont have anything to do with that place for a while….thanks to anyone who texed in….got some really lovely messages…will be posting more in depth later…but have to go to the bloody passport office….LONG!


OH NO thats the word

Today on the show Mz Bratz from the Aftershock camp chose So Solids debut album They Dont Know as a classic. Im not saying anything…i actually agree with her, vaguely…i mean you cant deny they smacked the arse out of the charts from 2001-2002 with formerly underground tracks or the fact that some of them are still making money today in successfull careers (although not all in music) and their was no denying the 2 finger skank when playing Haterz & Oh No during the show…Ms Dynamite is ill on the Envy!!
However the skanking soon stopped when a tex came in saying i should spear head a So Solid Revival….REALLY!!! LIKE SERIOUSLY…im the person you thought of for that job?!!! 21 SECS 2008……Please god no….i mean, no offence to any of them its just…all that bling bling lyrical culture was so monotonous and in a way killed the scene….raves getting shut down, violence, people getting banged up doing nonsense cause they think they have to have an Audi TT parked in front of their council gaff….in short what im saying is maybe i shouldn’t spear head the return of So Solid but erm thanks for thinking of me…now back to the 2 finger skank…
