manchester music mondays

Manchester is repping pretty hard right now, lots of artists making some BIG moves and GREAT music, STANDARD ;)  So Mondays are now OFFICIALLY dedicated to all things musical from my city. First up on my magical Manc melody tour is the ever troublesome but always lovable Skittles with his new single Tip-i-cal-ly from the forthcoming album ‘Poor with £100 trainers’ if the title hasn’t got you wanting more already then maybe 2010′s free download of the pre:P will get you salivating for the album which drops this year! Catch me performing at the Manchester album launch April 6th at Noho, in the meantime enjoy the below sampler featuring remixes from Chimpo, Dom Hz and more :)

ode to the spider

Somewhere in my frontroom is a monster, its present location is currently unknown. This unsettles me somewhat, having met if face to face only once i cannot be to sure of its exact type or species but one thing is for sure, its big and i dont like it. Sitting here on the couch half asleep i swear its somewhere watching me with its beady little eyes *skin crawling*. Fight the fear i must, be at one with the beast and so a dedication, to take this creepy crawly feeling away, ode to the eight legged invader.


3,2,1 im gone ;)

So long, adieu goodbye my lovelies i have gone to further shores…ok im only in Belgium  today but tomorrow ill be even further and then a week from now ill be in Berlin, not touching UK soil til Oct 4th, i can feel you miss me already as much as i miss you X

Carnival Jesus & Harry potter

A week back today i was at Alexandra Park in Manchester enjoying the Mosside Carnival,  the first time i’d been there in over 12 years! Shocked as i was to see Jesus and Harry Potter there i was even more surprised by the beautiful weather and rather pleasent crowd of all ages, creeds and cultures peacefully enjoying the some what community lead entertainment and tasty but pricey food. Snap happy as always here some pics from a very fun sunday… (more…)

Raekwon on pop

Wu Tang are just one of my teenage fave’s  gracing the UK shores this summer (checked Snoop & Prince last week,  Salt n Pepa get here in Aug!) caught a bit of the interview Raekwon done for 6music to promote the UK shows, where he says it exactly how it is with regards to artistic content of the modern day pop artist/rapper.

I cant bloody wait to see the Wu…seriously too many albums with too many tunes what the hell are they gonna fit into their live show?? Oh sooo exciting :) Makes you wonder though in terms of the artistic development of the modern day stars he’s talking about are Tinchy, Tinie, Dappy, Sneezy (lmao)  and whoever else you lot listen to gonna be able to get back on stage in 13 years time for a WORLD TOUR? With the unoriginal A&R’ing of the UK major labels just what longevity are they creating for their artists? I’ll stop right there.


snoop in manc

snoop at Rock Corps

Seriously he was and thats got nothing to do with the fact i wasnt at Glasto…more do to with the fact he didnt bring TT onstage, actually did more of his own tunes rather than other peoples and was wearing a Man United football shirt…..there was a few moments at Thursday Rockcorps concert where me and Sam were not feeling it at all (Akon track, random Euro pop freestyle) but regardless Snoop Dizzle was the shizzle for rizzle the complete bomb bizzle my nizzle. Also im giving myself props for wearing my original Snoop T from the Doggystyle era and standing out like a sore thumb, beeyatch you better recognize im an OG lmao! Also caught  Vampire Weekend who were bloody brilliant very happy clappy low down snare playing slappy, drummer and bass player just a joy to watch making it a dope event all round. Big up the Orange RockCorps crew for all your hard work you soooooo deserved Thursdays knees up, and big shouts to theGiftd & LT for the tickets case you know i never painted no wall! :) Gonna add the few videos i took after the jump but gimmie til end of week innit blud!

testing, testing @ parklife

The (locally controversial) Manchester festival was much fun this weekend, i was residing for most of Saturday behind the Ape tent soaking up the sun, hanging with Chunky n crew and trying out Ustreams Iphone app that allows you to broadcast live on the interweb to your Ustream Channel from your IPhone . Now it kind of worked and it kind of didn’t for a number of reasons, one major flaw 02‘s Iphone network being quite shabby on the day (quelle surpirse!) another being my newbie set up of the app and my channel on the site itself.  Also the ever flowing stream of fizzy booze didnt help but i did get few things on video, however alot of stuff i recorded using the ustream app and saved went missing….not a good look and i should of just recorded via IPhone cam…lesson learned anyways here for your viewing pleasure is a little sample of the salvaged footage from a day in the life at the park!

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
