The Panini Has Landed with a Word from Europe

Memphis Millions, Disco Samba and the June Lodge vinyl

Memphis Millions, Disco Samba and the June Lodge vinyl

Hello. That’s English for ‘Hello’ because I’m in The Netherlands where everyone speaks English! I always feel like a dickhead going to a non-English speaking country flapping my gums and speaking the only language I know how to speak in my shrill North American accent. But alas, I’ve been reminded that I’m not that much of a dickhead (I still sound American) and it’s ok to speak English in Holland, so chill bruh.

After 25hrs, I finally made my destination (and yes, it took me 2 weeks to write a post – jet lag and complications bitches). Flight was great! I was flying with some delicious New Zealand rugby players, wine was flowing and the woman next to me only tried to put her bum on me twice. Then things started to get dark and I remembered that I took quite a strong tranquilizer before boarded and just like that – boom, I’m knocked the fuck out – for 10 hours. I SLEPT FOR 10 STRAIGHT HOURS on an international flight. If that doesn’t break some kind of record I don’t know what will. When I finally came to I was in Abu Dhabi. I won’t bore you with details but there was a shit-ton of cheese, Arab bread and wine. I was happy.

On my second day here, my friend Tom arranged for us to have a play date. We took a train to Antwerp, Belgium where my day was filled with sites, strong beer and vinyl shopping. There was soooo many records and look, as an amateur, I wanted them ALL. Classics, new shit, obscure French Canadian country hits, local music and so much more. However, I bucked the fuck up, kept it real and for 13 Euro I think I made off with quite a steal. Los João’s Disco Samba literally made me dance like I was in carnival and I couldn’t pass a throwback to 70s soul and funk with the Memphis Millions LP (featuring Isaac Hayes’ theme from Shaft!). I took it easy on this trip as my friend has a lot of records already (such as June Lodge and Rick James), but I’m eager to get more. Stay tuned.

Tot ziens. (that’s Dutch for ‘see you later’)

Janini Panini Says: “Auf Wiedersehen”

All it took for me to have input on the programming was that it had to be my last show. Oh my God, Wednesday was MY LAST SHOW!!

Ok, so my mix was a bit random. I was like a kid in a candy store, I wanted to have one of everything. In the set, I made sure to sprinkle some Canadian goodness (most of it old school and none of it Drake), I tossed in some R & B, mixed in some hip hop and doused it ever-so-slightly with a bit of ratchet. I got a lot of love on the SMS line – I was surprised and it made me feel good, then sad, because I’m leaving.

It sounds like such a cliché that I’m shit at goodbyes.  I’ve had such a blast over the last 2+ years on Stolen Records. I’ve learned a shit-ton of radio stuff, perfected my off-mic Janini Panini diva tantrum and got to hang out with the two coolest guys on radio. And not to be forgotten, I got to interact with you, our listeners through social media and at times in person.

So thank you Sydney and people who live in Sydney – for being such a great city housing great people doing great things. But let’s not get awkward about this. I’ve moving overseas not underground and where there’s Internet there’s me. See you in cyberspace.

Auf Wiedersehen. xx

LISTEN TO FULL SHOW: REGGAETON, JOYRIDE & CAKES

Yo!

Warming up to this Saturday’s Pineapple Repblic, we started off the show with some of the hottest reggaeton. We then rounded it off with some reggae and even got topical (not tropical) with The Herd’s 77%.

Joyride graced us with his presence and sat through a game of Cake where he miraculously got 5 out of 5. Joyride’s set was a mashup of classic hip hop and r’n b. Then it got pretty damn sexy.

Oh – and I ate the meanest, sweetest and juiciest navel orange. Shabba, Shabba, Shabba Ranks. Shabba, Shabba, Shabba Ranks.

A re-enactment of janine in her rave days


LISTEN: Full show with Havknotz, Sr Bolivar, Dancehall and Rave Stories

I’mma keep this brief cuz my brain be all like:    d[o.O]b    after hearing Kendrick’s verse on ‘Control’.  Ok, sure we’re all thinking it, but dang Kenny, why did have to murder everyone on that track? WHY?! Oh and some advice Jay Electronica, maybe, just maybe you should have had a peep at Kendrick’s lyrics before you followed up with that weak-ass verse. Ya, just because I was brrapping and “oh my gawding” after Kendrick’s verse, doesn’t mean I didn’t pay attention to the soft follow up. Someone please just take me back to 1986 where the only ‘Control’ I was interested was by Janet Jackson and yes, it was nasty.

Hai, oh yeah, we played a whole bunch of other stuff in that 113 mins that Control (not the Janet version) was not on air. Sir Shant-a-Lot started off with an old-sounding-new school reggae set, then that Control track happened and I blanked out…

I’m just playing! Senor Bolivar kicked off some tropical beats that had us dancing and we ended off the show with Havknot Massive who dropped a Havknot exclusive.

Episode #4151: Dancehall Mix + Dutty Dance Off

RADIO SHOW: LISTEN TO OUR BASHMENT SPECIAL W/ LOUIS BASSLINES

This hump day Stolen Records was brought you by the Caribbean.

On the nigh of the fortmonthly Dutty Dancing party at Good God, Emperor Shantan Wantan “Jamaican Patty” Ichiban and Mike “Curry Goat with Rice and Peas” Who, murked the airwaves with an ass-shaking dancehall set. Dancehall mashed up with a bit of UK grime and a lil dash of dubstep had everyone within a 27km radius inexplicably moving their waist. Even my friend Lieve and her friend Wendy all they way in Zevenbergen (not Sevenburger), Holland were getting down and daggering at work (not really, but hey, could have happened).

My favourite bass line dropped about three-quarters into the show. Louis “Stewed Peas” Bassline dashed all requests pon de floor and played whatever chune he rassclot wanted to. And it was good.

See you Saturday!

Podcast #4521: Cakes Da Killa + The Tongue: Freestyles, Interviews, Trivia, Beef & Fun Times


Download Full Show: Cakes Da Killa & The Tongue in the Studio

Who the heck is Cakes Da Killa? I didn’t know either until this show. He’s a badass MC, poet, lyricist and madd theatre buff from New Jersey and clearly a long lost cousin of the Panini family. Blinked and I missed it but he was in Sydney a little while back. Well spoken and dope on the mic, I’m kinda gutted I didn’t see him live. Next time…

Next we had Sydney artist The Tongue aka Toungue aka Tonuge aka The Teacher. When he’s not influencing the young minds of the future, dressing in drag for video clips and starting Twitter beefs he’s writing thought-provoking tracks and doing one hell of a job performing them. Here to promote his ‘Surrender to Victory’ tour The Tongue stopped by to talk about rap music and freestyle. And since he’s such a fan of beefs, Shantan had him play our occasional Stolen Records game “Cake” but altered for this instance to “Steak”. Winning 4.5 pieces of luke-warm IGA beef steak The Tongue humoured our presenter and answered all the hip hop beef questions correctly.

Wanting even more beef, he then dissed us in his freestyle, thus starting a Stolen Records v Tongue beef*.

You should listen to the show.

(*There’s no beef, it was a weak ploy to increase readership. Sigh…)

Episode #4321: A$AP Ferg Interview + DJ Leon Smith Booty Shakin’ #twerk Mix

RADIO SHOW: Listen to show w/ A$AP FERG and DJ LEON SMITH

Howdy! And a happy Hump Day to you. So, Jay-Z drops an album – which nearly goes platinum instantly and tweets that his favourite Britney Spears track is ‘Toxic’ and Miley Cyrus is a Twerk GOD, what in the world is going on…? But on a breakfast tip, Jay-Z favourite cereal is Cap’n Crunch – mine too. See? Rappers are just like us!

A$AP mob member A$AP Ferg graced us with an interview. After 2-hours of waiting to record said interview, Shantan quickly realised that A$AP didn’t have the same meaning as ASAP. To me, that seemed quite obvious. I mean you never see anyone write soon like $oon. Apparently it means “Always Strive and Prosper” or maybe “All Strippers Ask for Paper”.

Someone say strippers? We had the Sultan of Smut, King of Ratchet, Baron of Booty Shake, DJ Leon Smith. DJ Leon Smith has been in the Sydney DJ scene for a hot minute and he’s a part of the Stolen Records extended family. But tonight he pulled back and only went quarter ratchet on us but still laid an expletive DJ set which was all we could ask for and more.
