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.

Portishead remix project

I discovered this underground project by the Noise/Floor Crew who remixed Portishead's "Third" album to create club bangers out of the melancholy tunes which some say lack the intensity of the previous albums.

I've been listening to these remixed tunes and I love them. I was one of the folks who kinda hated "Machine Gun" as a first release. It's jarring, stuttering beats were flat without the peaks and valleys of earlier Portishead "hits". Add some 4x4 club beats and some Ed Banger influences and this remix album is very listenable.

Comments Haters are hatin' on this, but time will tell if it becomes a classic vs. the original.
