across town...

It's always kinda nice doing gigs in South London, then racing back to London in either Deans car or an Addison Lee cab... especially if there's another party waitin at the other end...

Happy Birthday Rowan..!! Was fun playin' a few tunes for your celebrations down in Dulwich. Didn't quite have enough time to fit in all the requests... but fun all the same.

The journey started with me and Dan aka The Yung But Wize Dj pushing the cab.. (hadn't even left my road yet).

I finally switched when we were helpin' him jump start and he flicked into reverse for the FOURTH time...!!!

Lindsay found it quite amusing...!! and my neighbours (who hate the fact that i'm a dj..!!)

Really enjoyed droppin' in on Scarlett & Viva's mini-warehouse party above the snooker hall opposite Perfect Fried Chicken on Mare Street....!!

The Chif did his Clown Prince ting... and mashed up the tribal ting 'rignal tribesman... innit..?

Check his new Amy Winehouse video, not really sure if I like it or not... But then I never am with Lekes' little mad hatter tings..?!

Gotta love Hackney!! Fuck the Olympics...... We're REAL bitches.

Respect to Pete & Johnny from Man Like Me... Can't believe Pete listens' to my radio show (I can't believe anyone does....

Missed out on NyLo at Cargo and The All End Up party... waitin' for the reports to surface.

Just checkin' out Mista Jams' cover for Gilles' Show this week. RESPECT...!!! Jumped in last minute because Ras Kwame had an unavoidable issue to deal with.

Opening with Gil Scott Heron – Angel Dust’ (Strata East)" and into The Game ft Common – ‘Angel Dust’ (White), it's kinda refreshing to hear that traditional RnB, Bashment, Soulful selecta'.. Haven't checked out the bits from the Game... Maybe i will? This didn't sound too bad. But then?! I fuckin' hate The Game..!!

Haven't got there yet, but he played Chase & Status – 'Eastern Jam' (RAM Records)", need to get a phat mp3 or .wav of this one..!! My one's completely fucked. Played it the other day without testing it. Sounded AWFUL......!!!!

FEELIN' the Reggae mix...!!! some nice jams from The Abyssinians and Eek-A-Mouse... AMAZING!!! Was havin' a smoke with Skeete/Leon/Maximus/I.N.I the other day listening to the same kinda shitz. A shame he did it on Serato, reggae & dub outta mp3's? It pains me enough to listen dub on cd.... not really feelin' that too tuff. Respect Nevertheless.... Might have to get the mix off Beccy, and stick up a sneaky little podcast somewhere...?! (I didn't say that..!!)

Been checkin' the MadDecent blog quite a bit recently, since Diplo, Switch and M.I.A came into the studio, check Gilles' show on Wednesday. Loadsa fun on there including this track....

Santogold - Starstruck (Diplo Remix)

This is a BIG ONE...!! In the record box right now.. One of those one's that everyones' a little lost when it starts to drop.

Been gettin' into this stuff quite a bit recently... Big Up Sophie...!! xxxx from Clapton -> Brussels...!!

Think i'm gonna be out there soon to check out the JazzBreak cats...

Mos Def's back, after what is now a standardly long break... Mos Def - The Glow

Just posted... my new weekly rundown on the Brownswood Blog
, a couple of extra bits on there.

safe... xx

Infinitum / Aunties Lock

new video (think this is the first?) from Flying Lotus' album 'Los Angeles'.

This is by far my favorite track on a very good album, and it's kinda pleasin' that the video suits the fit.

Laura Darlington fron Deadalus on the guest vocals... made me smile when i first heard this track.

pleasantly suprised...!!!

but then?

Not really!!

same ingredients, same channels... different feeling!!!

Solange Knowles aka Sol Angel

Click here to get a cheeky track that didn't get cleared.

Gotta admit, it was quite weird being in the back of a huge merc in the west end having an impromptu listening session with Beyonce Knowles' sister and Gilles Peterson before the release of her debut album on Geffen...

but then it wasn't really like that.

That was 45 minutes after an impromtu 3 hour record shop with Theo Parrish... oh? and we went window shoppin' for classic cars. Well? He did!!

pic in a minute...
