bratislava report – uprising festival

Thanks to all our friends in the crowd who supported us at the Uprising Reggae Festival in Bratislava earlier this weekend! We hung out a bit with Million Styles from Sweden and we had a great show! Here’s some pics..

This is what every tourmanager dreams about when closing his/her lids above the clouds in a cityhopper between european summer-festivals. A quiet terminal, nobody at the check-in and no rush at all to the airplane..

When we finally arrived at the festival, after four hours on the Czech/Slovakian highway, we ate at the hotel. The kitchen surprised us with their culinary wizardry and bedazzling display. Man, I’m tired of people who cook, but have absolutely no interest in food..

The backstage tent at the main stage. Gather the troops! Attack the crowd!

Fashion tip of the week! From the stand where we sold our tee’s. I’d go for the “bodybuilder-pirate of the carribbean-evil guy”-look any day..

Schumi always finds a reason to show off his collection of expensive and hard-to-get sunglasses. These are the crown jewels.

See you soon!

Debatt

Kolla på Debatt på svt1 i morrn torsdag kl 22. Det ska debatteras om FRA-lagen och en annan är inbjuden pga låten ‘Den Ljusnande FRAmtid’. Inte för att jag tror att jag kommer ha så mycket intelligent att tillföra (jag är bättre på att skriva låtar), men jag ska dit o höra vad de har att säga.

My foot

I sprained my ankle the day before yesterday (like so many times before playing basketball or handball) while I was shooting a video in Finland with the Conscious Youths. I was jumping up and down like a mad man and suddenly I stepped on something… It hurt pretty bad and I couldn’t continue shooting the video – except for some shots lying and sitting down. Then I left for the hotel and I had to hop on one leg the whole way to my room. Of course the receptionist put me in the room furthest away from the elevator… I was fucking soaked when I got to the room, slept for 2 hours and had to catch a flight back home.

I gotta big up the airport assistance crew though, who rolled me in a wheelchair from check in to the plane, and then another one from the plane all the way to where the trains go to Malmö:

(Notice that’s Falk on the wheelchair! Same company who are notorious for beating up graff writers in Sweden. No love for Falk security of course, but the girl who pushed me in that wheelchair was real kind and helpful.)

On another note I talked to the guys in Conscious Youths and told them I couldn’t be in the group. I don’t know if you know this, but I was for a while – but I soon noticed that I didn’t have enough time to get as involved as I needed to – to really feel a part of the group. I’ll be a guest on their album though, which is soon to be released.

frankfurt report

The day after Hiphop Kemp in Hradec Králové we flew to Frankfurt to do a show at the 20 year anniversary party for Railslide Skateshop. Thanks for bringing us out!

The venue was an old church that had been rebuilt.

Before the party they had a little sk8 contest inside.

Finally, some downtime at the hotel..

They put us in a very nice designer hotel, called 25 Hours.

hiphop kemp

We had high expectations for Hiphop Kemp this year, and we were really happy with the show! The organization at the main stage was pretty much chaotic (that’s why we were delayed more than two hours..) but the crowd was live and when we finally entered the stage we felt their massive support! Thank you!

Our hotel. We didn’t get to spend no time in our rooms, because of the delay.. After the show it was straight back to the airport. Phuu.. Raplife.

Stress! Promoe is kinda like N.O.R.E. – On the Run Eating.

20080822584-001.jpg

We met up with some old friends from Sweden. Mary Ann & Sheila a.k.a Da Shadlimz! Big ups!

The crowd, a few hours before our show..

Ginger & Lemon galore!

This is Oliver Tiger. He’s was rocking a custom LTR-tee and seemed to be pretty much exhausted from screaming and jumping during the show.. His dad Affro runs the whole festival.

I felt the same way when picking up my bag at the hotel. Exactly ZERO seconds of sleep. Show tomorrow..
