thats rinse sessions for those who cant read. This night is set to be huge, previous nights of note were run the roads at fabric but there have not been many other nights this year in a "super club".... So the media will be watching this night like hawks.
It would be great to get all the people who are trying to push the scene out on this night, be sure to bring your networking tools and your open ears and raving tools. There should nt be any beef becuase its crimbo and its all about turkeys, but there are no turkeys on the line up...
tickets are selling out so get yours soon... also check out the ad bar at the bottom of the page for other nights this side of 2006.
put that in your big mac and eat it, the buff film festival is coming to London this year. The launch was a very personal affair with a host of stars. If the films on show were anything to go by the British film industry is in a good position to do big things... but why the picture of the gerk?After looking out from the 18 floor of itv's london hq I actually realised how buff london is at night... the gerk building particularly stands out as well as the eye and all the bridges... with backdrops like these london is definitely set to become the scene for some major pieces of art...
9pm – 1am. £6 advance tickets from. http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/. £10 on the door

PA’s: Choong Family,
This night was big; I got to admit I was only there for the main room sets. The line up was Sway featuring Pyrelli and Biggz. Not forgetting the Scratch Perverts and emcee Dynamite, plus the massive Dirtee Stank showcase.
Dizzee was very big, he did his thing, a little was missing, the crowd was live but not as hype as I thought they would be. I was expecting to get a sidewinder style set from Dizzee, some real gully material. But Dizzee seems to have moved on and his style is much bigger and more professional. The mix of garage, concept and hip hop was crafty. Full marks to Semtex who kept the vibes bubbling all night.
Semtex defiantly educated the masses by mixing some dirty south, west and east coast and some concept style beats. The pictures tell a good story but to get the full story you had to be there. People queued for hours and still did not get in. Does sardine can mean anything to you? Well it must have been like that when the crowd’s final dissolved into the club…
I have to thank the XL recording press department for the hook up, (cheers Steve) although it would have been great to get some exclusive time with the rascal. Instead we managed to catch up with Jammer and also Stanza from Scandalous Unlimited. Jammer has just touched back down in the country that day, not sure exactly where from because the music was too loud. Stanzas collective is about the shake up the whole game with a Mixtape the eye of the tiger. The vibes are dangerous and you will hear a load of artists that should have bussed ages ago. If you want to clue your self up go and cop the renegade boys “the interview” and the second edition of run the roads for the Dynasty track. Also check the Dynasty boys on Shystie’s new drama called “Dubplate Drama”….
So that the “Eye Of The Tiger Volume One CD Compilation” and breaking the rules. Watch out for “maths an English” from the Rascal which will be dropping mid spring or summertime 06. I can’t wait for the 06 season to kick in. I think everyone is calming down and preparing for news years and Christmas, and it’s usually quiet up until March when we get the WMC…
But the scene here does not ever seem to sleep, the game keeps moving at a blistering rate. Sways blistering “up your speed” got a good response, as did “flo fashion”. Check the pics for more action. Biggz came on and made people say “cor blimey” and pyrelli did his thing when sway sat back and chilled with thoughts of his recent mobo.
The scratch perverts were on point as always, and we got to give them props all the way for putting on the night itself, all I got to say is please sir can I have some more.. Hopefully we should be able to hook up some words from the rascal and his new signings so the squad, if you don’t catch it here then wait for it in the Westminster smoke magazine.
p.s. check out the pictures above and below
Also hold tight for new articles on the Kano incident, its all politics init!
the "flock" the bird flu campaign has gathered speed. help out by eating at your local non descript chicken shop.
BUT theres a serious message behind the above photo. The cows dont seem to be looking out for their farm yard "bredrins", in other words the chickens. But we are a lot more intelligent than them, so we should stop the madness on the roads cos "under our skins we all got the same meat"
Logan Sama saved the day a few times from the decks and bussed some bigger tunes.. big up Osama bin Logan. many many flicks were taken, hold tight for the excluse juice front page news... Most of the fraternity was out, with Jim jams Jammer, Ears, Essentials, Doctor, Collins & Fiddy, Fury and many more.....

" for lack of knowledge my people perish"
Elijah Wood, Charlie Hunman, Claire Forlani
This is basically a footie film that explores the issues of hooliganism; its gritty but is a fairly accurate documentation. This is probably due to the fact that the director was once part of a firm. It’s based on the Green Street Elite from the Westham side of town, and shows the story of Elijah wood a student who gets caught up in the scene. Its got an anti violence message and gets the backing of West Ham FC. Verdict… ave some of that! Get me…
Another footie film just opened up this week as well. I wonder where the inspiration for the title "Goal!" came from? hmmm. But apart from that its getting rave reviews from everyone. Ashley Walters has a cameo, watch out for his forthcoming role in the fiddy cent movie. B ut more on that later, This films seems to have pulled no punches as it includes teams such as Man U, Brayne Munich, and of course Newcastle. its the story of Santiago Munez aka Kuno Becker, a Mexican from LA who ends up playing forNewcastle United . without spoiling it too muc, the second goal will be set in Mardrid and the third at the World cup. Some say this is just mass marketing, but thats not gona stop the fottie heads reaching. Verdict, Serious!
Soul singer Lemar was a double winner at the Mobo Awards
The former Fame Academy star beat Joss Stone and Estelle to UK Act of the Year. He also won best album for Time To Grow.The awards, which honour music of black origin, are now in their 10th year.
Lauryn Hill opened the show at London's Royal Albert Hall. Public Enemy were honoured with an award for Outstanding Contribution to Black Music. US singer-songwriter John Legend won Best R&B Act, beating Lemar and Mariah Carey.Best Reggae Act went to Damian Marley, who also accepted a Posthumous Achievement Award for his father Bob Marley.He closed the show with a performance of Could You Be Loved, accompanied by brothers Julian and Stephen.
Best Video was Drop It Like It's Hot by Snoop Dogg ft Pharrell.Other winners included Youssou N'Dour for Best African Act, Kano for Best UK Newcomer and Tim Westwood for Best UK Radio DJ.The awards featured a tribute to Luther Vandross, who died in July. The ceremony will be broadcast on BBC1 at 11.35pm on Friday.
Last year's awards were dogged by protests about nominations for the artists Elephant Man and Vybz Kartel, known for their homophobic lyrics. Organisers withdrew their nominations after an outcry from gay rights campaigners. This year the focus was on celebrating British talent.
FIP SAYs...i did not actually write the above but this is what i have to say on the subject. Even though Roll Deep, Kano, Mitchell Bros, The Streets, and Lethal wid da Bizzle are all doing the mainstream thing the scene gets no real love at the mobos. Come on mate work it out!
Sam White at the Spitz
It’s not often that the grime scene gets a platform to work off like this one so we need to support this thing plus its at a place called the Spitz so its def one for all the emcees, get it? Yeah right come one you love my jokes.
Its only on till Saturday/Sunday!!!!!
Sam white has a exhibition documenting the “east london grime scene”. Although it’s a bit biased and only represents one ends it is huge. It’s showing at the Spitz Bristro. Grime seems to be flowing freely in these arty ends and like Dizzie said “sipping on the dry white wine” and that’s exactly what you can do down here as the bristro offers a selection of fine wines for the connoisseurs. We are trying to get an interview with Sam White so hold tight for that.

Firstly big up all the people who attended the event, this is the second year this has run and it is a blessing for the scene. It gives the female branch of the scene a chance to shine bright. And they did.
Bethnal green was the venue of choice, big shout to all the contestants. Especially the winner Shorty D (above bottom). Close runner up was Angel (above top), I feel she has a lot to give to the game in terms of wit and relevance to the now, shes is sort of just like Plan B. Big up you girl, I was especially feeling the accapella.
The judges were on point and made the right decision (the judges are never wrong, just like teachers at school) but what a hard choice it was. Nchyx represented the north of the country (pictured above) , for those of you who know she has been down at deal real. Phoebe One did not turn up, (shame on you!) but Baby Blue was in the crowd, probably checking out the competition. There needs more support from other people of notability especially prominent females within the UK scene. DJ, professionals and emcees stand and be counted.
Apart from the female input we had the pleasure of seeing a dace crew also from the ends, The Familia were very impressive, showing a great degree of personality from different individuals. I would have like to have seen more group performances. Watch out for a website coming soon, you lot will get the update and the links when its there.
As per usual the NW crew were in the house and the Shaolin crew showed us their tiger style, tenchu, shinobi manoeuvres. Watch out fro media productions from this camp. I myself have never understood the NW west divide, seems pointless to me but anywho… this event will be back next year and will just keep getting bigger. God bless Dame Destini.
