Friends-&-Family @ the-roadhouse 04.09.02

Tonight's Friends & Family opens with Fat City stalwart, manager of the record shop & purveyor of Mystic Brew (Fat City) compilation LP series, man like Martin Brew and then our other weekly resident Christian Wood. Our host for the evening is ever-present Kwasi Asante

Special guest tonight is none other than Shortee Blitz!! A true ambassador for hip-hop. Originally from Nottingham then an early career playing warehouse & underground parties in South London. His big break came in 1993 when plucked from a crowd for a now-legendary beatboxing session with Snoop Dog. He was original backing DJ for Ty & resident DJ at Kiss FM Radio since 1994. He has worked with hip-hop luminaries from the other side of the Atlantic (Cypress Hill, De La Soul, Jay Z, Jazzy Jeff, Jeru, LL Cool J, Mariah Carey, Run DMC, Rocksteady Crew). Also a member of Extended Players (which includes Harry Love, Mr Thing & MK)

With pedigree like that what else but a hot & sweaty, sharp & funky night of hip-hop and R&B was to be expected (and almost certainly guaranteed!) It turned out to be all these things. I was there...
