Under the weather
Would be here, if I weren't! Really dope to see a Sydney night dedicated to original breaks. Toast to it's success. Very fresh line up. Hopefully someone records some of these sets.
Relatively new night Hoops is also taking place for the second time as I write this. Expect a whole lot of Crunk, Baltimore, Baile Funk, Dancehall, Hip Hop & Hyphy. From all reports it is going off like the Biz! The line up reads as follows: DJ's Ninalavegas, Anna Lunoe and Bad Ezzy, plus Vivienne Kingswood vs. DJ Crane, Amillionaire, Rudy Jackson (Lordz of the Fly) with Banatronic & Hobosexual returning to the decks. Catcall shake n’ pop live with the HOOPS dancehall dancers will also be performing.
Some of you would have seen the following bits and pieces and some of you wouldn't.
Two part Neek The Exotic feature from one of Melbourne's biggest rap fiends ands realest scribes. Keep a look out for Robbie's interview with Ali-Ba-Ski (aka Lord Alibaski).
LA's DJ Mike B dropped a crazy DJ Sneak post a while back.
Sean D. did a mammoth Halloween post from the darkside that's well worth taking a look at.
New Jersey's DJ Nes recently posted a moving tribute to the late NJ graff legend "NaceOne" along with the link to a page dedicated to "NaceOne" on My Space with 100+ flicks of his work.
Every set I've heard recorded live from the Banana Split night at the LAX nightclub has been nothing short of incredible. This week's line-up is definitely one of the illest: Special guests Morse Code, Steve 1der, alongside residents Mike B, Steve Aoki, AM.
Here are some cool photos from Blog Erotyczny of girls and wandering cats you may have missed.
Just caught the video to LCD Soundsystem's - "Someone Great". Truly fresh, original, classy vid.
Speaking of vids, Panda Bear's - "Comfy In Nautica" clip, directed by Patrick O'Dell and Sam Salganik, is amazing.
