I'm back you know
Hello. Sorry I haven't posted recently. I've been busy sorting out my club night (it's next Saturday at Scala - I'll post the flyer on Monday) and listening to the new Dizzee album. The first single is called "I Can Hear The Sirens". I was just going through some old copies of Vice and have got a few ideas for the video. They're pretty great, so I'm not sure I should share them here in case someone steals them, but I'm sure no one would do that, right? Okay, what I was thinking was the video could maybe have a fox hunting theme - like an inner city version of fox hunting. I'm picturing Dizzee dressed up as a fox, running around Bow with some country gents on horses chasing after him. Seeing those guys riding around through some tower blocks would be pretty funny, I think. Anyway, it's just a thought.
The video for "Come 2 Da Roadside" by Roadside Gs has been banned from Channel U. It's a shame because it was probably the only thing worth tuning in for on that station. It went straight into the chart at number 3, then they pulled it after Operation Trident got involved. Apparently some anonymous artists went to Trident and "decoded" a lot of the slang to them - stuff like what "Star 9" means - so Channel U were then made to take it off the air. It's strange how they still play stuff like Baby Cham's "Ghetto Story" which is all about Cham getting a gun. I guess that's double standards for you though.
Here's the video for Matt Shadetek's "Brooklyn Anthem".
I could listen to Mavado all day. He's done a freestyle for me over a Lewi White beat, but I'm not going to go into that right now.
