If you're in the city of Christchurch (New Zealand) this Saturday night (March 12th) be sure to get over to The Porthole (42 London St, Lyttelton) from 9pm for what promises to be a dope night of Hip Hop. The main act for the night is local crew The Settlers, supported by my boys The Box Of O with myself on the wheels of steel and we have a very tight set in store, these guys have put in work for years to develope not only dope music but also a dope stage show and with myself on board now doing what I do best we're sure to rock the crowd. Hope to see you there!!!

I’m very late with this one but just wanted to share some pics of a great day, our TBB / TBG 40th Anniversary held last October in the Boogie Down Bronx. As well as all our beautiful worldwide family we had nuff legends pass through including Mr. Freeze (Rock steady Crew), Kid Freeze (Dynamic Rockers), Robert Taylor AKA Lee from Beat Street, DJ Outlaw (RIP) & Tony Tone (Cold Crush Brothers) and many more. For the morning / early afternoon jam we had our TBB brothers Johnny Juice (ex Public Enemy) and Charlie Hustle rocking the wheels then for the after party you had myself (Deejay Skamrok) alongside Danny Dan The Beat Man, Solo 138 and DJ Looie Loo. This event marked the first time since our first reunions back in 2010 that TBB Rocking Crew founder Batch was in attendance. As usual there was nothing but love in the house and a great time was had by all those who came through!!!

Here’s a little mix of varying styles I laid down at last month’s great Diggers Dozen night in London (big up my man Maxwell). House rules are 12 records per DJ, original pressings only, no bootlegs or comps.
This mix is dedicated to my late friend Susan Doe, tracks 1 -8 are all played from Polydor (and associated labels) white labels and promos I got from her Dad in the late 90’s (he worked for the label in the late 60’s / early 70’s), the last 4 tracks are from random favourite 45’s of mine.
Until I see you again my dear friend!!!
