Havent updated this blog in a while unfortunately, have been doing mad work on essays and such but….
went down to spend a week at 1xtra doing radio things this last week. Had an awesome time, working on shows for Jenna G, DJ Semtex and Ras Kwame. It looked like a really cool place to work and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Luckily they also use the might Cool Edit so all my RAW skills were not wasted.
Number 1 highlight was probably working on Ras Kwame's 100% Spoken Word special where they got about 15 of the UK's best performance and slam poets to come and kick stuff while Ras hosted and dropped some high grade homegrown talent. I've never really checked out that sort of thing before and it was heavy as. Incidentally, in Kat Francois the UK has the world slam poetry champion so big up us.
I strongly reccomend that you download the podcast of this show from 1xtra, especially to check out Goldie Rox, who has a Macy Gray but UK and better thing going on.
Also, Semtex's show put me on to the new Talib Kweli track Ms Hill which says what me and the gang have been ranting on about on the Urban Specialists for years. Come back Lauryn, we love you!!
