Skeme In The Morning

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of making an appearance and DJ'ing on the Sway In The Morning show on Shade 45 while I was out in Las Vegas for the Red Bull BC One event.  It was an early morning show (waking up at 530am) for show time at 7am but it was well worth it.  The show was recorded live from Nas' sneaker store 12am Run and was filled with people even at 7am.  Great to talk shop with Sway and help promote for the BC One North America Finals.

Shaolin Footwork Mastery

Those that know me know that two things that I love more than almost anything in this world is Hip Hop and most definitely classic Kung Fu flicks.  So when two of my brothers from separate mothers had the opportunity to visit a Shaolin temple to throw a few runs of footwork, I instantly bugged out with excitement!

Midnight Movie Cowboys 'Wild Style' Edition

This past Monday I had the pleasure of being a guest on the ever so popular Midnight Movie Cowboys podcast.  For those that have never heard of or tuned in to the series, it's based around three movie fanatics, John, Stu and Hunter that pick a topic or film and discuss it in-depth.  There's a lot of knowledge, laughs and other things to keep you tuned into the show.  The most recent episode that I was involved with was based around one of my favorite movies and definitely my favorite Hip Hop movie of all time, Wild Style.

Here's the episode for you to tune into which is also available on iTunes as well.

Live at Fresh 45's

Back in July I had the pleasure of heading to Dallas TX to DJ at the premier all 45's party called Fresh 45's with an incredible line up of resident DJ's.  They recorded my set for the rest of the world to hear, so I now present to you, Skeme Richards "Live at Fresh 45s".

36 Styles x Hot Peas & Butta

They say it's #WuWednesday but I rock fly Kung Fu shit everyday!

Super excited to be heading to Ottawa Canada next month for the House of Paint Festival.  There's a lot of things going during that time of the 4th-7th so I'm definitely trying to take in all of the culture.  See you soon Ottawa!

Funk Club 045 at IBE

This past weekend at IBE in Heerlen, The Netherlands, my brother Rob Manga and I had the honor of curating one of the tents for the weekends festivities.  Along with festival's organizers we came up with Funk Club 045 and we then placed in charge of handpicking the lineup of vinyl DJ specialists.  Everything from Afrobeat to Soul, Jazz to Hip Hop, Boogie to Funk and everything in between was played for a packed crowd while the sun was shining and a few diehards that decided to dance the day away while others took to the insides waiting for the storm to pass.  On behalf of the IBE festival organizers, Rob Manga and myself, we'd like to thank all of the DJ's that rocked with us as well as all of the attendees at the festival.
