Lighting Up The City

If you know me, then you know I love old school bulb lighting that used to be present on theater marquee's, carnival lettering and rides.  But I especially love the intricate neon lighting that's found in countries like Japan and Hong Kong.  Here's a great new mini documentary on "The Making of Hong Kong's Iconic Neon Signs".  I've never really gave thought to how they were made but this show's that it's definitely an art and craft to doing this.

Triple Delights!

Spent the last 3 days in Toronto (Waterloo to be exact) and enjoyed some of my favorite dishes from Vietnam (pho), Korea (spicy beef) and Japan (ramen).

Netherlands Train Bombing

Amsterdam has become like my second home, so it's only right that I get familiar with the graffiti and train bombing scene out there in the Netherlands.

Boogie Juice - Copenhagen's Finest

I always have to give major shouts to DJ's that throw parties and stick with it through the up's and downs.  It's not easy taking on the dual task of DJ and Promoter and packing people in the building.  Sometimes you might have 400 people (as was the case this past weekend), while other times there might be 150.  But one things for sure, they always leaving knowing that they had the time of their lives!  Thank you to the homies over at the Boogie Juice party in Copenhagen for inviting me back once again this year to DJ the Floor Wars after party. This is one of those parties that I go into hoping that I get to spin at least a 3 hour set so that I can go musically across the board. These guys are always doing their best to bring quality to the party scene and are pretty much the only game in town when it comes to Hip Hop, Soul, Boogie, RNB and Latin sounds.  It's easy to do a top 40 commercial night, not so easy to make people understand music with substance.

Spring In Amsterdam

Amsterdam has become a second home for me when traveling throughout Europe.  It's always a peaceful getaway when chillin out on the island where I can relax and get a lot of work done.  But one thing that never gets old is the scenery and on this trip the weather was perfect spring like conditions with plenty of people out and about.

From Bologna With Love

Had a great time in Bologna Italy two weeks ago while DJ'ing for the Red Bull BC One Cypher.  This was my first time to Bologna so I most definitely needed to do my usual exploring to check out the beauty of the town.  Amazing architecture, foods and friendly locals made this trip a very enjoyable one.
