Radio Show: Jay-Z Tribute Mix + Other Goodies!

It is debatable whether he is the best to ever do it, but he has definitely been consistent and outlasted many of his peers. He has come a long way from crack cocaine raps to becoming a respectable member of the establishment rubbing shoulders with dignitaries such as Prince Charles and President Obama. In my opinion a key part of his success has been a good ear for hip hop production. With so many hits and so many sweet as soul samples, Naiki’s tribute mashing up Jay-Z classics and the original samples was as killer as predicted.

3Ballin In Monterrey

Here at Stolen Records we endorse Global Bass and club goodness and of course pointy boots. Check the Vbs tv special for a mildly informative look into why these kids are getting their rave on in oversized pointy boots.

The 3ball sound has been bubbling along in Mexico City and Monterrey for a while with cross over love throughout  Mexico. Fronted up by seemingly well known wunderkind Erick Rincon, Rincon and a whole bunch of other young kids are making fun tunes for anyone game enough to play them in the club. Here are some jams on a similar tip I wish I could play out but probably never will.

MP3: Dj Alan Rosales – No Debiste feat Osa manosa (Warmits)

Also here is an older tune from super talented Melbourne Homie Lewis Can Cut with a remix from Chico Ye. This tune made me start checking for this sound a while back and is definatly club friendly banger.

Sample Snitching: Sweet Sable – Old Time’s Sake

These photos were too funny not to blog. A while ago an old friend of mine, Astrid posted these shots on her facebook. Yes that is me in the orange Lowes jumper performing at Eastgarden’s shopping centre. With lyrics like “It ain’t easy being on social security. So they consider me, a burden to society”, I was an instant hit amongst local shoppers that flocked with groceries in hand.

Adidas and Nike jumpers, awful undercuts with long fringes, high waisted jeans, but I think what makes these photo collages so perfect is Astrid’s Catholic School Girl meets Graffiti style of writing. Awesome to the power of infinity plus one.

Competition: What were you wearing in the 90s?

Send your photos to and I will repay you with a signed and framed photo of Janet Jackson or Aaron Hall much like this one from MC Hammer and take you out to dinner or something.

Oh I’ve Been To Tokyo Too

japanese people can sleep anywhere

Sleep standing outside Shinjuku Station. Proof the Japanese can nap anywhere.

Brisky Laser Guns

Brisky Lazer Guns. One of the all girl groups I saw at a night called Girls Power.

Animal Work

There is not an object that can't be converted into a cute animal. Council workers any where else would find this equipment too emasculating. Imagine trying to wolf whistle at a girl, while leaning on one of these.

goocy in harajuku

Much like how African Americans have reclaimed the 'N-Word'.


キノコホテル (Kinoko Hotel)

キノコホテル (Kinoco Hotel). An all girl Japanese Garage Rock band.

The Best Bang

Woah! Really putting it out there dude. I hope you can back it up.

Japan. Crazy, huh? I hear they sell orphan babies in vending machines and Hello Kitty is President. I went there once. These are some of the photos I took on my brother’s shitty camera before it’s battery ran out and I couldn’t recharge it. Some of them are even semi in focus.

I was at an all girls rock night in Shinjuku and was having one of those “I’m spending way much money” moments. In hindsight I should have bought one of the CD’s these Kinoco Hotel girls were peddling, but in lieu of having some of their music to share, I have posted something of a similar vain.

The’s, are probably the best known of the Japanese all girl Garage Rock bands. Their music is reminiscent of American Surf Rock, Rockabilly and Garage Rock, they also cameo in Kill Bill and they can’t sing L’s. I Ruv You!

Looking for Tokyo nightlife? Other than asking in record stores, Metropolis and Time Out Tokyo is a great start. And for fantastic food options and a couple of ultra trendy hipster bars follow Fashimi on her super hot and cute blog and twitter.

Update: Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Meltdowns and now possible Volcanic activity. You should help out at least just a little. Donate at or

Vintage Scratch nerd routines revisited

Shantan is probably going to hate on me for posting my nostalgic scratch nerd biz on here. But for all of those who haven’t seen these they are killer.
I can only imagine how many way to over the top Hip Hop heads would have populated Scribble jam back in the day.Homeboy Skratch Bastid takes the piss and the money oh so well.

This is also very worthy footage from 6 years ago now. These Frenchmen changed the game, bringing back music and funess to the lame world of DMC battles.

Most of the dudes from C2C are involved in bunch of other projects which you can check here..

Got a favourite vintage scratch routine? Please post a link below.

Yo, stop looking at my moms!

“Damn, shorty! Yo momma so fly, she should be a pilot.”
The Astronomical Kid ain’t playing and he don’t like your eyes, your lines and just because he’s a shorty don’t mean he won’t do no harm. Yo, y’all need to just stop looking at his moms!

Naww, but really how cute is he? He’s just trying to protect his beautiful mother… sigh…

Oh, so here are some other kiddie rappers we like…

Nippon, Nipples and the Funky Forest

Did you miss me? We have been a little quiet over here as I made a last minute decision to head over to Japan for a rather bizarre sort of a trip. Not strange in the same way as the video above, but a totally different variety of bizarreness. I would like it very much to tell you the details, but I am saving it for the memoirs, neatly filed under crazy things one does for… hmmm… Onigiri.

MP3: DJ Krush – Shinjiro ft Mos Def

Baby Monkey + Pig = Earworm

This stupid song has dug a hole in my head, kicked off its shoes, opened a six-pack and made itself at home in my brain.

At what capacity are a baby monkey and a pig together for this to happen? Seriously, is this even cute?

It’s going onto day three of humming this stupidly catchy tune. Both me and the pig need to get this monkey off our backs. Sigh…

(pssst! don’t know what an earworm is? then let the urban dictionary school you here.)
