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.

DJ Jazzy Jay (Zulu Nation) comes to L.A. courtesy of Pioneer

Thursdays are for happy hours. But, if you were near Los Angeles' Guitar Center on the world famous Sunset Blvd. this past week it was old skool hip hop night!

D.J. Jazzy Jay (Def Jam Records, Jazzy 5 M.C.s, Zulu Nation) was in CA demonstrating his deejaying skills on the new Pioneer Serato DDJ SX. Yes, it was an all digital, all MP3s D.J. set, but there was no lack of old skool hip hop flavor in the playlist selection. 

Here's my video clip of Jazzy Jay spinning classic tunes: Treacherous 3 M.C.s'" New Rap Language" (first released on Enjoy Records in 1980;) Marvin Gaye's T-Plays it Cool (released in 1972 on Tamla) and the b-boy anthem, Take me to the Mardi Gras (released in 1975 on CTI,) as featured in Wild Style! 

KRS One got down on some freestyle to hype up the night! Percee P was in the hizouse! And luckily, Guitar Center also sold one of those Pioneer DDJ-SX units that night. :)
