Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Is the UK the Hip Hop capital of the world?

I'm serious! Think about it ... back when Hoxton was still edgy Levi's did a party in Shoreditch with Futura and Lee (I got my Frankenstein poster signed). Covent Garden's Boxfresh did a Wild Style party in 2003 with Charlie Ahearn. Last year, I discovered a remake of the 1982 Afrika Islam Zulu Beat show created in Nottingham?! Word! Fast forward and this summer Puma celebrate the re-launch of their Clyde sneaker. Nice to see some cool UK talent on the roster next to Doug E Fresh and MC Shan!

What else is happening? B-Boys break...since the Urban Games of 2001-3 the interest in breaking has seen a rise in events for B-Boys to throwdown. Man, anyone who has history with me knows I wish I could break!
