What is Flavor?

September 15th, 2010

In our New studio Saiffa me and Focus are training
a group of very talented and motivated bboys. “What is Flavor?” was one of the topics we have been discussing after the sessions.

Anyway, here`s a clip of man who always finds the right words to describe Hip Hop.
Pay attention to all the little things like the way he speaks, the accents on the words and the expressions.

Win Or Lose

January 24th, 2010

Happy new year everybody!!

- Keep in mind that every battle can be won or lost.
- In 99% of the battles it`s all about you, not about the skills of your opponent.
- In 99% of the battles you gotta go bring your absolute best to win.
- Abolute best can only be reached be stepping out of your comfort zone and going beyond your personal limits.
- Ultimately, it`s not the complexity of the punch that matters, it`s the Power.

Ps. had to post this also, Win Or LOSE!! heheh.

Spinning the bottle

November 19th, 2009

Spinning the bottle is something that really kills the vibe of the battle for me! Waiting and waiting for who is going first and sometimes even if a person loses the coin toss or the bottle spin he is still not going first…..

I mean why you even enter the battle if you are not ready to make the first punch? I know that in some cases you get little advantage if you go second, but its equally (or even more) effective I you can kill the first round and take the energy of the whole battle.

Here is an example how you can do first round knockout and win the whole battle…

enjoy

Freestyle!?

October 6th, 2009

Term freestyle has a lot of different meanings. It can be spesific style of sports like skiing, swimming or wrestling. But what it is in breaking?

I had a nice conversation about it with Tuff Tim Twist(RockSteadyCrew). He pointed out that when freestyling you always did something that you have never done before and created something new everytime you threw down. For me thats a great definition for word freestyle in breaking. I also found out that instead of being totally free,it´s easy to just rely on existing moves and use them in free or random order.

On the other hand history of word freestyle in Rap offers another view on the subject.

“There are two types of freestyle. There’s an old-school freestyle that’s basically rhymes that you’ve written that may not have anything to do with any subject or that goes all over the place. Then there’s freestyle where you come off the top of the head”

and also

“A lot of the old-school artists didn’t even respect what’s being called freestyle now… any emcee coming off the top of the head wasn’t really respected. The sentiment was emcees only did that if they couldn’t write. The coming off the top of the head rhymer had a built-in excuse to not be critiqued as hard”. -Kool Moe Dee, 2003, There’s A God On The Mic: The True 50 Greatest MCs

New York State Of Mind pt.2

September 18th, 2009

Its been two weeks since I came back from NY and its time to sum up what really happened…

First off all it was best New York experiece this far, even though winning RockSteady Anniversary 2006 was pretty amazing. This time I had the time to explore, party and enjoy the feeling of the city where it all begun.

Breaking
Did two strictly breaking Jam. Ruckus at the Forgotten Borough(footage) in Staten Island. Jam was in a neighborhood called Stapleton, according to wikipedia, some Wu Tang members lived or still lives there. Anyway you could really feel why WU sounds like WU and nothing else.
Second Jam was Breakers Delight in manhattan, nice jam with Dj Getemgump dropping the illest beats. Lot of people was were getting down, Abstract, Tecknyk, Kid Freeze, Breaks Kru, Sesion31, Candy, Dynamic Rockers…..ect
Other than that we went to practice to various spots in New York and Jersey, nice practises no doubt.

Partyes
New york offers a party for every night with dopest dj:s. We did couple Bobitto`s partyes such as Happy Feet and All 4 Vinyl. Both were super dope with great music that made me sweat on the dancefloor, only topstyles:) We also went to Tecknycs Great Expression, wich was in small underground venue. Party was packed and hype. Four days after UkChamps weekend in Finland with Skeme Richards, was a party called More Than Enough in New York with Skeme and Dj SickRock. Long Island Ice teas and Skeme on the decs, Classic.

Shopping and Sights
During days I had time to go around the city. Did some mandatory shoe shopping, cheap t-shirts, a-shirts(beaters), v-necs, pocket shirts, Levis 501. All the goodstuff.

Here some pics from top left to right.
1. Just finished eating in Wo Hop, rumour says that Bruce Lee used to eat there
2. Chilling after practice in New Jersey with Zebras and Sesion31
3. Washington Square
4. Classinc practice session in McCarren Park with Break Easy, Brooklyn
5. Michael Jacksons birthday party at Prospect Park Brooklyn with Dj Spinna spinning
6. Yoshinoya, Combo meal with huge soda,Chicken and beef bowl in one!!!!
7. Lasse Viren at Staple store party…
8. Top of the world, Empire State building view with pigeon.
9. After the jam, chilling at rooftop. Brooklyn bridge at the backround( you cant see it)

Thanks for Eric, Lance, Bedrock, Nemesis and everyone else who showed me around of me during the trip.

Spotify Finally for Iphone

September 7th, 2009

Spotify is a huge online music library. Its fast and easy and very usefull for us music lovers. Now its even better…. It`s finally here, Spotify iphohe app!! Im currently testing it and it seems working beatifully. You can download your playlists on your device and play songs offline so you dont have to worry about connection failures or any of that. Only thing is that you have to upgrade your Spotify account to premium..But i have actually thought of doing it anyway just to get rid of the ads that playing every now and then.
Phhyeeaaahahh
