(VHS Archive) VINROC in-store showcase @ MR BONGO's, London UK circa 2000 (Video)

One of my favourite in-store performances from one of my favourite DJs, Vinroc really was a master of all the crafts. Party Rocking, Battling, Mixtapes, he did it all, and very well too. Really down to Earth and humble guy too.

(VHS archive) DJ APOLLO (former ISP) routine circa 2000 (video)

Wish I could remember more about this gig but unfortunately not too much to say here, the legend that is DJ Apollo was doing a showcase during a Souls of Mischief gig. As I say, I don't remember much but seeing Apollo for the first time was the highlight of the evening…

DMC Heavy Hitters bless Super Scratch Sunday ft VEKKED, JON 1ST & MR SWITCH (Video)

I just got round to having a look at the mountain of footage I took from my last trip to the UK. The last Super Scratch Sunday (SSS) I could make was put on in London the day after the DMC world finals, with the hope some of the participants would be able to make an appearance….

Choicest Cuts Vol 8 October

This month I discovered a couple of really dope artists from France - Pumpkin an MC and Vin's Da Cuero, a dope producer. Together they put some great stuff together and "Like an Automatic Weapon" is their latest banger. There are two versions which you can check on the video…

All party rockers need to check SHORTKUT's Boiler Room set!

so you think you can rock a party? Yeah, so did I till I saw this Shortkut set. Everyone and their dog seems to have done a Boiler Room set but from the ones I've seen this is the best so far for me, and possibly pips the DJ Shadow and Mr Thing ones which I'd also recommend. Don't miss the serious dance moves at 39:30 by the Peanut Butter Wolf lookalike!

What's in the water in Canada….

Skratcher T.O. "Basement Sessions"

Damn, enjoyed watching this… Been a while since I saw DJ's Dopey, D-Scratch and Grouch, so pleased to see them still representing on the cut. Such a dope set-up too getting so many DJs arranged facing each other in true battle style…Would love something like that here in Barcelona! Canada has just been churning out those dope turntablists for a while now… makes you wonder what's in the water over there!
