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.

HVW8 crew on Walrus TV

This new video shows you the HVW8 collective from Canada and how they work together, but it doesn't show you the other fruits of their labor. The HVW8 store, off of Melrose Ave., is a small space, but hosts some of the best low-key and consistently dope hip hop-related art and music shows.

Where else can you go to see art from Dutch graphic superstar, Parra; well-respected Kevin Lyons, the man behind Natural Born clothing (and numerous projects for Nike, Jordan Brand, adidas, Stussy Beams Japan, HUF, and Stones Throw Records;) and undercover photographer Cognito with his never-seen-before Mos Def tour photos?

And since the HVW8 guys love music they're constantly pushing the boat out on getting in-store performances. Where else can you see and hear Computer Jay, Hawthorne Headhunters and other jammers put on a neighborhood show? HVW8 captures a bunch of these on their dope podcasts - here's a video on one of the joints I've been listening....the "Live At The BBQ" series.
