Me and my homies, we tighter than a glove

As you probably figured, I done did some bloggin’ about my very recent trips to Baltimore and NYC already, so let me rewind a bit to the past to continue right where I ended – September 11th at JFK airport!


Flighttime between NYC and SF is a proper 6 hours. I slept like a puppy on goatmilk and arrived in San Fran just in time for the most San Franciscan of all lunches


with ma homeboy Yao.


The Sucka Free is still somehow my dearest destination in the US (NYC don’t be mad, I kinda <3 u too), so I appreciated the freedom to spend some time there, before hopping on the next plane. SF vista from Twin Peaks, anyone?


The following glimpse shows a view of the infamous Bay Bridge, as seen from Pier 7, which used to be THE skateboarding spot back in the late 90s.


No more, unfortunately, since the city of San Francisco has a zero tolerance policy for shredding these days.


Kind of a sad move to ignore and trying to suspend an entire culture from a city that is still being referred to as the Mecca for that particular movement. I used to shred there myself a while ago, and had the wonderful opportunity to see an SFPD cop car from the inside. Here’s to the good ol’ days.

Baltimo’ Street

Earlier this week, Enso and I took a ghetto ass bus from NYC down to Baltimore,


to play guest sets for Cullen Stalin & Scottie B‘s weekly NO RULE night at the Metro Gallery.


It was quite goosebumpy to visit the origin city of what’s called B’more club music! Thanks and huge ups to Cullen and Scottie! Damn me to hell for not taking more pictures. This is all I got for y’all from Baltimore, from the morning after:


baptist church

Enso was all Baltimore’d out for this trip. Peep the t-shirt and the Baltimore orioles hat.


New Yorkers were giving him shit like “So how the orioles doin’? Not too good eh?”, but the staff at Mickey D’s in Bmore was definitely feeling the steez and giving him major props. Enso is the type of person who is the type of dog that celebrates Bmore to the fullest. Don’t be surprised if you catch him blasting Baltimore club music whilst having candlelight dinner with a boo, taking a bubble bath, reading a book, eating a piece of cake or shaving his chest. No bull. Shit is kwazy. Download his latest Bmore club mixtape here:

Put your hands up for NY

Happy superbelated labor day and whatnot, y’all! It’s early morn’ of 9/11, and I’m broadcasting to you live from JFK airport in NYC (spooky, innit), on day # 10 of my USAmerican voyages. Sittin’ here waiting for my flight to San Francisco. I haven’t slept, burned some midnight oil, feeling quite braindead, so better don’t expect a lyrical masterpiece now. However, let me hit you with what I’ve got.


Just in case I haven’t mentioned yet, I’m on sort of a mini US-tour with homeslice DJ Enso. After spending 24 jetlagged hours in San Francisco, we flew straight to the eastcoast to spin at Sutra in Manhattan, alongside the magnificent Michna aka the artist formerly known as Egg Foo Young. Peep the queue in front of the club and a headbanded DJ Enso.


NYC is one of the most vibrant, diverse places I’ve ever been to. I fucking love it. Bit of a culture shock, after spending so much time in Hong Kong! But travelling as much as I’ve been lately, I actually find myself in a constant state of culture shock. I might get used to it. Williamsburg has good pizza, bagels and pugs.


Meet our adorable hosts CB Radio.


In the next picture, you’ll see me livin’ it up at the headquarter office of Wall Street Journal. How the fuck did I get in there without getting brutally tasered, dying a cruel and spasmatic death? You’ll never find out.


Oh yeah, we also been to Baltimore, but let me squeeze my Marylandian adventures into a separate post, ok? Ok. Lovely Roxy Cottontail invited us to play her night called ‘Digital Fancy’ at Manhattan’s new hotspot called The Greenhouse.


Here we are gettin’ hyphy with Trouble & Bass CEO Drop The Lime.


Crowd at Greenhouse going bonkers.


Enso / my tired self / Roxy.

Armand Van Helden ft. Roxy Cottontail – Playmate (Jesse Rose remix)

Drop The Lime – Hear Me (Drums Of Death remix)

Dammit, I wanna be on that plane now. Can’t hold my eyes open much longer. I’ll be arriving in San Fran round noon after a 6:30h flight, and I can’t wait to shower, stuff a burrito in my face and walk the piers. SF, your weather better be splendid today.

Quick stateside update

As you can see below, I’m dwelling in the US of A as of now. It’s mad foggy in San Francisco this morning.  Now would you please excuse me, I got an early flight to NYC to catch. Hold tight for more bloggery from the the land of the free and the home of the brave.


Tonite I’ll be playing at Sutra with Enso & Egg Foo Young, so roll thru if you have the chance.

Stevie V – Dirty Cash (Eli Escobar edit)

This one reminds me so much of those days when I explored MTV for the first time. It’s been a good summer in 1990, but while fellows would kick it outdoors, I’d sit in my cousin’s living room and bump MTV day n nite, rubbing my eyes in total disbelief of all the flashy audiovisual dopeness that would rain down on my 11 year old brain via satellite TV. Next thing I know is running out to the recordsto’ to cop 7″s of Paula Abdul, EMF, Bell Biv Devoe, Guru Josh, Digital Underground, Depeche Mode, Sir Mix-a-lot, KMFDM, Technotronic, Guns N Roses, KLF and such. One of the goodies in my bag was this joint by Bedfordshire-based one (two?) hit wonder vocal house trio named The Adventures of Stevie V.

Still lovin’ the hook, still lovin’ the sax. If it wasn’t for NYC’s Eli Escobar re-editing this fab relict of a vintage MTV era banger, I swear I woulda forgotten.

Speakin’ of Eli Escobar, Eli’s debut single Glass House is out now on Plant Music and exclusively available at beatport. Peep the vid, directed by Francisco Soriano.
