Where to start
Shout to my man DJ Diaz. His weekly Hip Hop online radio show (soon to be podcast) "Tales From The Crates" is most definitely in effect. One of the most skilled DJ's I've had the pleasure of seeing tear it up on the 1 and 2's has been busy on getting this project up and running for a while now. it's well worth the wait. Each episode of "Tales From The Crates" will feature in depth interviews with Hip Hop artists out of this country, new releases that you need to hear, event rundowns and plenty of dope music mixed and doubled-up, cut-up how it should be.
In the first episode Diaz speaks to producer Chasm (Obese Records), DJ Staen-1 (3x Australian DMC Champion) and Scott Burns (who speaks on his forthcoming album "Day One").

Now onto something completely different
Skins is probably the only program on tv worth switching on the box for right now. It's a raw, uncensored UK cult drama series about the youth of today from the creators of the Shameless series. For anyone who missed episode one which aired over here on SBS at 10pm, on Monday 7th, 2008 / hasn't downloaded the entire series via the torrent for the program, check the video (in five parts) below (which has been on You Tube since August last year.
