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.

The man behind the B-Boy classic: "Planet Rock"

When the opportunity comes you have to be prepared. This occasion was in the form of Arthur Baker coming to LA and spinning a few tunes alongside A-Trak at a Downtown Records party for Kid Sister at Zune LA.

I had a pic from Winter Music Conference in 2004 when I bumped into Arthur at a club. A quick turnaround at Walgreens got me a 5x8" print for Arthur to sign for me. Hip hop history. This is the man who sat in the studio with Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Force (aka Mr. Biggs, Pow Wow, G.l.o.b.e. and Jazzy Jay!)
