Title to be read in a Daft Punk when they were good voice Ho hum. So what a gwarn? Tons im guessin for me and you so lets just get straight into it, today i cant stop thinking about sex. Its like my mind keeps switching off and when i come to im just stood there with a really graphic thought in my head. The latest one consisted of the new Superman in his Immortals outfit (leather and sweat) and the dairy isle of Hulmes’ Asda, which is funny cause i dont drink milk.
In other news its SUMMER! That is official as it hasn’t rained in Manchester since last week however someone should tell that to the house down the road from me as they have their washing hung up in the front room…apart from peeking into my neighbours windows i have been spending the glorious summertime gigging with The Engine-Earz familia and in my garden getting my green fingers on. Pause for a Bruce Banner thought ;P Yesterday keeping me company in the garden was the briliant Space Love mixtape by Buenos Aires finest Bad Boy Orange. Felt like i was on a rooftop in Palermo (i miss that place) listening to this electric selection, such good vibes it would be rude not to share the love. Heres to the weekend people x
Stringer Bell, Jon Luther, Driis, Senor Elba what ever you wanna be called im ready and waiting for ya! Been missing this guy like cook food since Luther finished on BBC earlier this year, was such a dope drama series gutted to have to wait over a year for part 2! Anyways in the meantime i can get my Idris Elba fix with this weeks (USA) release of the long awaited Takers. Starring far to many men that would get it to mention them all and Chris Brown im sure you’ll be hearing about this one soon enough, set for UK release on 1st Oct, its gonna be the big date movie for Autumn (action for the guys and guys for the gurls, lol) that is if it doesn’t bomb in the states first, (fingers crossed) the release date has been put back enough times! Fancy being on the official movie mixtape? Time is ticking as the final day to submit entries is this week, watch the ever so slightly awkward vid after the jump for more info (more…)

More details from STrats after the jump
Woken up by a phone call this morning from a certain rapper who will remain nameless offering me box seats to his arena gig in town tonight as long i dont perform at Ballin On A Budget, man some people will try anything to sabotage the only place to be this Thursday evening. Mint Lounge with myself & Zed Bias, Fallacy, DRS’s Album Launch and of course the hosts with the most Broke n £nglish all for just £2, in the words of Curtis ‘ if they can’t do it, homie it cant be done…’ Need more inspiration then check these out….
Enjoyed listening to this soooo much yesterday, whilst jumping round my front room and sticking my middle fingers in the air, that im listening to it again i think you should to
Politics got more ugly than usual this week as Nick Griffin chairman of the British National Party (by the way that is not a link to their website) took part in BBC’s Question Time. His time on air was spent stuttering responses, smirking when talking of the holocoust, using erroneous historical statements and generally not coming across very well when faced with the publics scrutiny on his party and their policies. If you haven’t already watched it i can’t recommend it enough, dont believe the hype find out for yourself. (more…)
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.
Enjoy Jenna Ration G
Dam Japan has got me so busy the blogging fell a little behind…but how could i not give ya a Muh muh Monday mixtape though even if all my links are on my Mac at home. Dam it i should have synced before i left…anyhoo the Itunes shuffle has been in overdrive since we landed and this little beauty jumped out at me yesterday on the bullet train back from Osaka. Son of Kick, currently out in OZ recharging his batteries, let this little beauty off for free last November. Showcasing his mash up skills of madness, dope sounds and eclectic talent ‘Les Enfants Terribles‘ should see you through this week nicely. Im blasting it out this morning while overlooking the Hachiko crossing, its funny cause they look like their dancing to it!
If your in Melbourne he’s playing at the Croft Institute tonight (7th) and the 14th, get him while he’s hot
Enjoy! Jenna Ration G
Yeah i know…its almost like a feature…except the last one was on a Wednesday but thats irrelevant right now. Join me as i start a quest, discovering old and new mixtapes…oooo already im sooo excited, gotta dig out my DJ Rectangle Wax on Wax Off classic for a future post. Don’t forget to check past posts under MUSIC for more mixtape madness. Right about now though i dedicate my very first Muh Muh Monday Mixtape to the sonically effervescent, northern dub gyalist, Manabadman extraordinaire Toddla T! Finally met him at TTC last week, much fun, prompted me to dig out his banger Ghettoblaster…didn’t have to dig that far either as it came out last year. Get your own grubby little hands on it here if you haven’t already (doh!) then go explore his space where you’ll also find the jam-up tracklisting!!
