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.

Alhambra represents...A DJ and a drummer

Keeping it real...I was killing time online and found this video clip. A DJ and a drummer from Alhambra, CA, better known as JustinCase and Lloyd, who rock their parties with freestyle improvisation (I guess it's the same thing.) Sure, the novelty wears off after a while, but when it drops it's hot.

Now, I guess these cats are too young to know it's been done before by the greats. At the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) in London I saw a couple of Max Roach videos where he jammed along with a DJ and an MC. Here's something from back in the day in NYC with the New York City Breakers. ILLLLLL and original!

This is dope...the spoken word in rhythm. Two legends together.
