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.

UK's DJ Switch (DMC World Supremacy 2010) on BBC's Blue Peter

The UK's DJ Switch won the DMC World Supremacy 2010 last month, beating DJ Getback from France. I've sat on this news for a few weeks, but I had to dust it off! UK has to be celebrated!

There are two solo DMC DJ championship titles which is's what I learnt the DMC World Supremacy champion wins via a head-to-head, multi-round battle! Whilst the DMC World DJ champion wins in a single showcase. Capisce?! France is a force to be reckoned with...LigOne won the World DJ title!

I grew up with BBC's Blue Peter show so I had to share this 2007 video clip with DJ Switch. This is what the kids in the U.K. get every week. Nice! (If you're confused by the accent, the blonde lady is from Northern Ireland.)

Scratch video Previous World Champ, DJ Shiftee, has released a very clever video tribute that spans years of DJ battles. It features Shiftee as protagonist stepping in the shoes of many of his DJ heroes.
"This video is a tribute to all the incredible DJ Champions from DMC's glorious history.  I've spent countless hours over the years studying masters like Roc Raida, Q-bert, Craze, and A-Trak. My goal: to one day stand in their shoes.  Literally." DJ Shiftee


"Congratulations to all of the 2010 DMC National and World Champions who battled last weekend in London. We saw so many great DJs! The dvds should be out soon so please keep an eye out, please buy a dvd and support!" Peace and thanks as always for your support!!" Christie Z-Pabon, DMC USA / Tools of War
