So basically I had that Kanye West Jimmy Jimmel interview on while I was listening to this mix John Doran from The Quietus did and this awesome joint by SATELLITI called YOUNG WOLF came on just at the point where Yeezy started getting mad righteous about society trying to hem motherfuckers in with low expectations and self esteem. Shit sounded awesome, so I recreated it, mashed the visuals together, and hit upload. YOU’RE WELCOME.
Two dope videos for you today my brothers and sisters! Below we have myself and brothers Narstie and Ev Dash, performing Games For The Thrones all acoustic like on a (yes) balcony (as blogged about when it happened a few weeks back)… not just any balcony, mind, but the balcony of that great big Methodist Church in central London, the one where Luke and Mary Turner’s dad runs things in the manner of the head of a church, which is sort of what he is.
The session came out very dope, I am happy to report, despite us only getting one take and not being particularly rehearsed and Ev cocking up the end. Good work Balcony dudes! ALL HAIL!
The second video, then, is a pretty mightily serendipitous affair. A few hours ago I was like, crap, I need to put a video on my new Youtube Channel, there hasn’t been one since Saturday! SO I looked in my Competed VIdeos folder, and I saw THIS… Thank You Beyonce, a thing I created at the behest of the 02 a few months back, to celebrate Beyonce’s series of shows at the former Millennium Dome. I’d started a version with titles, that I was going to out on my channel, so I decided right there and then to FINSIH THAT THING, right away, in the manner of the head of a company (which I am). Anyway, when I’d finished it and was rendering, the internets informed me that today is NATIONAL BEYONCE DAY, and also that very same Beyonce’s flipping BIRTHDAY! HOLY SYNCH BATMAN!
Anyway, enjoy this thing of beauty, it made me cry while I was creating it. Those people love that woman SO MUCH.

So I was out in LA last week, on my way to a Hollywood recording studio with Wade, when our passage was blocked by The Iron Man 3 premiere. I’ve never been near a hollywood movie premiere before. It was pretty creepy, there were all these screetching creatures weilding giant blow up Robert Downer Jnr. dolls.
Anyway, it reminded me I’d started a beautiful and powerful piece of music based around a sample from the first trailer some months back, for no good reason other than stoned enjoyment, and certainly no intended project for it to live on. So when I got back to Don Studios in London I FINISHED THAT THING and then I UPLOADED that thing and now its yours. ALE JACA EST!
