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.

B-Boy Summit is happening...LA are you ready?!

It's a big weekend in Los Angeles hip hop circles. B-Boy Summit returns to Los Angeles thanks to Asia One and No Easy Props.

This is one of the most important events since its mission is clear: 
"Without an understanding of the roots and culture of Hip-Hop, the youth of today would not be able to expand on it, further developing the styles into futuristic trends of tomorrow."

Back in the day I still remember going to B-Boy Summit #4 in 1997 in San Diego. Pics below taken from Dexter's Facebook as mine are in the UK. Also, see the end of this post for fresh flyers for some of the Summits throughout the 90s and 00s.

Read below for a history of the Summit and the schedule for the three-day weekend events (Oct 1-3, 2010) in Hollywood and Downtown LA.
"The Bboy Summit was created in 94 due to a need for a community orientated Hip-Hop Event that encompassed knowledge of the history of Hip-Hop Culture with the skills of Bboying and Bgirling (breaking or break dancing).
At that point in time Bboys and Bgirls did not have their own platform in which to come together, dance and pay homage to the traditional dance of Hip-Hop. Each year the event has expanded to encompass Bboys, Bgirls, MCs, Aerosol Artists, and DJs from around the world, steadily building into what is now the foremost Hip-Hop cultural event in the world. Equally, the Summit is proud to be considered one of the most important events for Lockers, Poppers, Waackers, Freestyle and House Dancers to journey too to take part in the annual Soul Fest at the Bboy Summit.
The impact the Bboy Summit Event has had globally is insurmountable, most importantly contributing the transmission of Bboy Bgirl style of dance, as well as street dance in general to the new generation. Without an understanding of the roots and culture of Hip-Hop, the youth of today would not be able to expand on it, further developing the styles into futuristic trends of tomorrow."
