The Lazy Blogger

Yeah thats me, its been way too long and im doubting theres even one person left reading this because of my utter slackness but im not gonna lie its been a hard, mad year and its made me very lazy in terms of blogging. So much to catch up on…some might say even too much so im not gonna back track too much, more try to push things forward ;)

Right now im in my kitchen still suffering from jet lag after an awesome week in LA. Big shouts to the Winter Fresh Crew for getting me over there and to all the faces that took me places, i particularly enjoyed driving on the wrong side of the road for the first time…not as scary as i thought it would be thanks to the perfect soundtrack provided by Backspin radio, literally every song you want to hear about Cali/LA when your drivin through it ;)

Speaking of scary no doubt alot of you will have witnessed Strategy’s Voodoo priest get up for the terror dome anthem from DubPhisix, Skeptical & himself ‘Marka‘. Absolute salute to the Manc contingency on this one, the video which is already over 100,000 views on the tube is like an excerpt from a movie i wouldnt watch alone. Nice to see alot of support for this track which no doubt will be smacking a speaker system near you over the festive period!

In closing i obviously have to direct anyone in the Manchester area towards The Ritz tomorrow night (Monday) for Hit n Run vs Riot Jazz. Ill be jumping on for a few tunes with the RJ Brass Band ad mist a heavy line up as always ft Silkie, Drumagik and more :) See you there or back on here now im not being so lazy :)


twas a wonderful night :)

RIOT JAZZ Vs. Hit & Run from Dr. Treehorn on Vimeo.

Just seen the video from the last time the Riot Jazz boys and i played together in Manchester….mind out of the gutter people im talking music! Made by the fabulous Dr Treehorn and starring the raving masses that always make Riot Jazz such a special night. Shouts as always to Axel & Tom, True Tiger, Chunky, Strategy, Rich Reason (playing the trumpet very well at the end) and of course Misell my bell. Do ya self a favor if your new in town, get to know Riot Jazz, an ill see ya down the front when im back!


BP & the coffee spill

Spent last night with the Riot Jazz lads watching them organize their uber experience at this years Kendal Calling , in between watching them work and eating pizza they showed me some funny ass videos…this is the first :)


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!

the riot jazz i missed :(

Riot Jazz

So thanks to a dodgy kebab i ended up with my head down a toilet on Riot Jazz ‘s 2nd Birthday bash featuring the awesome Buraka Som SistemaUnited Vibrations, Broke’n £nglish, MC Chunky and of course The Riot Jazz Brass Band . I really didnt need this beautiful video by Dr Treehorn to highlight what a dope event i missed, watch if you weren’t there at your peril ;)

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

Dedicated to all those who don’t travel with Hash ;)


Mr Bang ON got him banged up!!

So allegedly Ghostface is currently playing a packed out private show in Heathrow’s Police Station this evening, or his management have gone all out on the excuse. Manchesters appearance is now cancelled due to his DJ being stopped with illegal contraband on their way into the UK from Paris… To make matters worse when being questioned it came to light Mr Killah himself has a warrant for outstanding child payments in the USA…. WTF it doesn’t make sense that if he owes money they are stopping him making any…also i didn’t realise outstanding CSA payments can stop you travelling internationally?? Thank god i don’t owe money to them, yet another bonus for keeping my legs closed and being a woman! Anyways show must go on this evening and as gutted as i am to not be seeing one of my fav Wu Bangers i am still totally ready to rip up the stage in a dnb stylee longside 12 brass players blowing their horns!! Should be a pretty dope show as well, with all the extra time who knows what can happen!!


SURPRISE! Im live and In Love!

OMG GHOSTFACE IS IN TOWN TODAY!! Mad excited as its gonna be a heavy show down at Moho, only 200 tickets left on the door so if your not already down i suggest you put it in your list of things to do for today… Special guests include ME!! First time with the Riot Jazz boys doing In Love!! I really cant wait for rehearsal tomorrow to hear how the hell this is gonna go down!! So chuffed they asked me to do this, they sound hot as hell live and are safe as houses, if it all goes well no doubt they’ll be more live collabs on the horizon :) Its Wu m*******a, comin thru m*******a!!
