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.

Hip Hop favorites: Roy Ayers and Pete Rock in LA!

Last week, I entered a competition to win tix to see Roy Ayers and Pete Rock as part of the Homage series of gigs. Sadly I didn't win and that's why I'm sat at home blogging instead of at the gig ;)
"Homage is a music series that pays respect to the musical giants that have forever altered the way we listen, sample and love music."

The question was..."Name five rap artist who have sampled Roy Ayers." You could probably name 25 artists, but here was my list... 
  • Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth “Searching”
  • Funkdoobiest “Dedicated”
  • Jungle Brothers: "Sunshine"
  • A Tribe Called Quest "Keep it Rollin"
  • Brand Nubian “Wake Up (Reprise in the Sunshine)”

 If you need a reminder here are the tunes to nod your head to! Top billing goes to Pete Rock!
