Sofia, Bulgaria


a memorial of sorts

dinner with Niki Phoenix.  
he told me an interesting story of his family who is half Mongolian, half Bulgarian.
he also used to bartend at Soju Bar in Berlin which is now closed.

Sofia's best record shop

a beautiful Russian church

my hotel was also in the same building as the club and a live theatre.

the phone in the room

which one? Eventually I made it inside and was treated to a warm cheese pastry breakfast made by Niki's grandmother with a few pints of 'homemade' Bulgarian yoghurt drink which the Japanese apparently go crazy for.  "It's full of bacteria you know!" We watched Chalga videos until I took the most affordable cab ride of my life back to the airport.

Brixton Jamm


the Brixton Jamm, an old horse stable and carriage garage, has been home to many an epic Jungle party over the years.

nice tiling in the hotel bathroom

Dez killing it.  We had a nice conversation about scratching and DJ Aladdin.
Here he's playing 'Simmer Down' on 45 over Adonis.

I opted for an English breakfast while my pals Sam and Barry enjoyed more American fare.

dubwise riddims for sale on the street.
