Kymberlee Jay – creater of FunkPhysics and regular dance teacher to many youths around the borough.  Kym works in the same building as me so tracking me down was not a problem!  We took a quick walk around the area (see how beautiful Tottenham is?) and took a few snaps in the building too, along on the journey were of course the brand new not even out yet Nike Air Yeezy’s, check shots below…


Aruba Red in Jamaica

King Jammys Recording Studio's, Waterhouse, Kingston

King Jammys Recording Studio's, Waterhouse, Kingston

A major blessing in itself to go to Jamaica and visit the original King Jammys recording studios.  This is where we met the 3rd son of King Jammy – Baby G, a bad boy producer who enjoyed the vibes of Aruba Red and Jah Cure combining nicely on the track.

J Rocc

Last Tuesday morning was a nice surprise for me, being a lover of REAL hiphop music I was naturally very happy when I heard the names J Rocc and Mad Lib mentioned to me over the phone – for those that don’t know, get to know!  Real hiphop in the form of producers who have worked with the great emcees of our time such as Mos Def and Talib Kweli, as well as working alongside the legendary J DIlla and other great talents.

The venue was Jazzman Records in North West London, where a large vault of classic hard to find Soul Funk & Jazz resides waiting to be snapped up, for J Rocc and Mad Lib, this was heaven.  For me it was an opportunity to photograph and meet two hiphop greats, some of the best producers in the world in fact.  Unfortunately I could not make it to their gig later on that night in Fabric due to other commitments, but im sure they tore the roof off and probably did so their whole European tour,  J Rocc and Mad Lib – Nuff Respect!
