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
Browsing Esty today for what i cant remember because somehow i stumbled across the macabrely beautiful art of Ramon Maiden. Vintage posters & prints of women and military men adorned with his tribal/symbolic doodling, wooden hand etched tattoo pieces,custom razor blade collages…im hooked, love, liked and now shared (more…)
Jeff Leach stopped asking me out for dinner about a year ago, we first met in 2007, im so glad he finally got the message ;) Its not that i dont find him ridiculously attractive or his hip-hop speak when addressing me amusing, my polite refusals were more to do with the fact that he is just not boyfriend material…see above and be prepared Edinburgh he’s coming…for your women! (more…)
Walking through the Arndale a few afternoons back i was stopped in my tracks by the full window posters of the new Gstar campaign featuring Vincent Gallo. Smouldering in dark denim against hard stone surfaces shot timelessly in black and white, i felt like a fool for having not thought about him since…when was the last time i swooned over The Gallo? How, better yet why the hell did i forget about him?
Where does he find the time ? Riz MC with a twisted love song.
Quiet for a while i know, did you miss me? Kind of lost the need to share stuff since whenever i posted last…but no fear the desire is back and in full effect so lets jump on to the big tune bandwagon of the week…… (more…)
One thing that always baffles me about gigs i do is the amount of pictures/videos people look like their taking. What happens to them afterwards, i always wonder, as only a handful trickle down through facebook and the like. In particular my past tour in South America had the most amount of people in all 5 gigs waving cameras in the air (or standing still whilst achieve perfect framing) whilst i was performing…my questions is where did all the evidence go? In particular i request the help of my Santiago homies to find the Photographer (or videographer as he is in the above shot) with the red jumper and black A’s hat in the centre of the above picture, taken by Manuel de Fierro at Caja De Ritmos.. he was taking pictures of me at the sound check and then through out the night, very curious as to what exactly he was doing…. Any way easier to find and with awesome results i must link up the rest of the galleries from the people who took the time to upload their shots of all the action, Fede Welbe @ +160, Black Magic Sounds Venezuela and of course all the Sub Grave Sao Paulo crew
Here in the city of Vienna for tonights Gina Drewes catwalk show, im positively beside myself with excitement as ill be appearing as the last model of the show and busting a little sing song Sandie Shaw style in my mourning kimono…also i just found that there’ll be a shit load of male models hanging around all day due to the other shows being just for men, life is just too good right now, dont hate me it will probably only last the weekend If you cant make it to the show then head on down the the Banana Club after 12 for a another fabulous outfit and some seriously huge shoulder pads……tee hee!
Are you curious as to whether your such a PHALLUS that someone put your name into the almighty reference known as DICKAPEDIA? Didnt know there was one? Oooo i bet your mad nervous now innit…you dick!
Onra plain and simple i cant stop listening to any and everything i can get my hands on from this little sample shuffling master, might be late on him but does it really matter? Find his past offerings on his myspace but go now and buy the brand new album Long Distance now on itunes with the highly dope High Hopes ft Reggie B, rewinding this tune to death on my iphone fighting urge to two step down the street!
The UK is sooooo hot right now, the world is waiting for the next big thing and everybody on this island is having a bash at it! Am surprised to see DJ Manny Norte throwing his two decks in the mix, its been longtime me nah see ya breadbin! Im not taking the piss but i cant help but laugh whilst watching this he’s doing that whole 90′s producer in a video thing, its hard to take him seriously…however the years of training he’s had behind the decks and in the scene he’s got the diddy pose well and truely locked! J2K and Dready complete the line-up for the single ‘Breakin all the rules’ which is out now in the UK (at Tescos apparently, genius Manny just genius!).
My Sambuca and Lemonade drinking afro hair Reading spar James Blackstar John set this years WMC in Miami buzzing with his track Smile forthcoming on Whasdat Music . Just got an email telling me the promos out now!! YAY FUCKING FINALLY, get over to traxsource to purchase an awesome summer seducer, featuring the gorgeous vocals of Deon (Deaco, swoon!), sample it below
The beautiful voice of Jesse Boykins III might be familiar to you from his work with Theophilus London or Machine Drum , if not make sure you check out this awesome new talent making waves in NYC. This video for Amorous taken from the album Beauty Created (out now) and was filmed during his first trip to these shores, to perform his in london. Check out a lovely interview with the man himself over at PJ‘s. In the meantime can some one clarify if he’s saying ‘she’s a walrus in the chorus’….it cant be it doesnt make any sense…unless the lady in subject is huge…lol!
…to justify watching this programme Big Babies on CBeebies, of course it would have to be Stewie Griffin, anything else would be over the bridge in a bag with bricks…obviously a joke highlighting how unready i am for a bambino in the real world!
Don’t Tour That Episode 19 up on DontWatchThat.tv featuring one of Manchesters finest team Strategy from Broke n £nglish, ABSOLUTELY WRECKS IT IN THE SHADOWS OF OLD TRAFFORD, ‘i might go for the salad but hold the tomato!’ ‘eating emcees like carrot cakes, cause to me he sounds weak like Gareth Gates!’ as always relevant and random lines for days Strats, the flow is ridiculous!
Wow has it really been that long since my last post? The time has just flown by, it must be the company i’ve been keeping…. (more…)
