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.

This is huge...coast to coast!

And it's international...Belgium, Italy, Canada, Japan...and Ireland! This is the 3rd annual event to celebrate the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA and beyond.

B-boy delight! On US soil and in the hood, Brooklyn’s Basement Mix are rocking Record Store Day with with Jay-Z's latest signing, Uncle Murder (he sounds cuddly;) ), and Notorious “Gravy”, the actor best known for portraying Notorious B.I.G. in the film “Notorious.”

Def Jam releases the cream of the crop on vinyl on Record Store Day for the first time. And anyone who's anyone know that Fat Beats is where you can bump into the Biz doing his weekly vinyl shopping. This Saturday has a huuuuge line-up. If you're in town go there to check DJs Rob Swift (X-Ecutioners) and Primo (Gangstarr) spinning shite! The Rock Steady Crew will be in the hiz-ouse and the ill Talib Kweli will be doing an in-store! Word!

On the Wessssside Not to be left out, Fat Beats on Melrose will be reppin' with one of my favorite DJs, Kutmah (Sketchbook, Dublab) and many more LA mainstays. And the almighty Death Row Records will relaunch with a special free CD sampler on Record Store Day...cop it whilst you can!

Irish Record Store Day...check out the scenery outside:)

The wise quote of the day: "'s not the internet and MP3s that are closing the stores, it's the rents!"
