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.

Guns, Gin & Juice, and Girlies

Tonight was James Lavelle's last night in town. He'd been writing and recording his album in California so Jason took the opportunity to send him off with a trip to the LA Gun Club down in Little Tokyo. What a laugh. That place has become every visiting Brit's destination spot...I mean who in the UK has ever shot a Desert Eagle or a Bretta? It's gotta be done, mate!?

I took James down memory lane when I said Nick and I went to his Fulham office to play him music demos in the 90s and how I went to see Fraser in the Oxford St. office he shared with James a few years later with Dex. "Man, that's just at the start of Mo' Wax", he said. Ol' Skool!

Check these photos and don't miss the video clip to watch Stevio x Raging Bull! That bad boy is the Raging Bull .457 (bigger than a .357 Magnum) Get your ear muffs to the ready...

After the shooting extravaganza we headed to The Standard Downtown for food and drinks. At the bar we met a couple of James' mates. One was a pornographer (aka Jonni Darko XXX). The other, a DJ for the Hollywood celebs from Hull. That was the start of an interesting evening ;-)

The DJ's girlfriend arrives - all made-up and a little high. It's 2am and she's just come from work..."where's that?", I ask innocently..."Spearmint Rhino!" Of course I had something to say about that as I chatted about the artform of stripping?! She pressed up on me and asked "do you want a dance?" Gulp, "Uh...nope!" I said nodding my head! Hah! I wandered over to the safety of the lounge, but encountered the DVD player and a test disc. The other pic above is of Johnni's catalogue of material. It's pretty heavy stuff...

That was enough of LA life for one night...I left before it got too heavy so I could live to tell the story ;-)
