After 3 years of performing together in clubs from from Beijing to Miami, Streetwise and Richie Balboa finally decided to put together a DJ mix for public consumption. This 55 minute mashup covers styles from Hip Hop and Ghetto Funk to Breakbeat, Dubstep, Electro and Drum n Bass.
For those not familiar with these two UK based artists here’s a little heads up.
Streetwise’s background has taken him on a tour of almost every dynamic in the music and he now finds himself at the forefront of the Ghetto Funk scene through his website www.ghettofunk.co.uk. His productions under the Dancefloor Outlaw brand were released on Shanghai Disco, a sister label of the infamous Hot Cakes owned by DJ Deekline. Support from the likes of Krafty Kuts, DJ Yoda, Cuban Brothers and A.Skillz has shown The Outlaws to be firmly at the forefront of the Ghetto Funk sound. This year has also seen Streetwise take on a whole host of remix work for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Dubpistols, Fresh, The Guilty Hands and Dogtown Clash. With more releases and an imment tour of Australia, 2010 has been a busy year.
Richie Balboa has spent the last five years DJ’ing everywhere from Tel Aviv to Timbuktu. In 2010 he won the best breakthrough DJ award at the international breakbeat awards and soon after was recruited by Juno to personally craft their breakbeat podcast series. As well as DJing he manages NSB Radio – www.nsbradio.co.uk – an online radio station broadcasting the entire spectrum of broken beat music live 24/7, managing a roster of DJs based in every corner of the globe. The future see’s his production debut expected in early 2011 whilst continuing a busy live schedule, check www.richiebalboa.com for more details.

And as it’s Friday tomorrow here’s a mixtape . And if you don’t live in London and have no idea where Kingsland road is, don’t worry yourself too much – but you are missing out ;)
Heavy Feet come barging in like a herd of hungry hippos, grinding to dust the left over broken china from the Bull’s Greek party the night before. They’re animals. But don’t be fooled by the name, these Hot Steppers also know their way around the dancefloor like mice in balloons…..
RHYS FACT#1: If you are on the dancefloor and you have the choice of either an elephant or a women (or man) in stilettos stepping on your foot. Take the elephant as it’ll hurt less.
Speaking of Creatures great and Small, These Manchurian producers & DJ’s do like a bit of wildlife including DJing in SealPits in Ibiza with non-other than MC ROLFI HARRIS. Okay i made that bit up, but as Gabrielle once whined – “things can come true”, he’s pretty down with ye sick pets! You Heard Rolf Harris’ techno track in protest to Canadians murdering Seals?!?! – Check it, it’s dark.
And If the city of Manchester were a DJ then he’d be playing the likes of The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Oasis, New Order, Joy Division & The Smiths but at some point in the early hours, the City would need to step it up a little to keep the leafy fever moving through the vein pipes of the citizen citadel. Something of the same calibre… What i’m trying to say is, these guys are the shit and they’re not even putting a Donk on it!
Check out their MySpace for their latest bangers! Definitely check out the War remix if you like drum & bass. It’s a belter! And download these tunes pronto ya pussyclart doll!

In six minutes, Italian producer, Michele Balduzzu, aka, Phonat, has a created an eclectic production that pieces together house, hip hop, acid, drum n’ bass, electro, down tempo and a bit of everything in between. His debut track “Learn to Recycle” being released on on London’s Mofo Hifi, is a befitting title, and the task of tapping into so many genres and doing it up right is not an easy one. Phonat is breaking rules, and pushing boundaries, perhaps that’s why this newcomer is being championed and put into rotation by the likes of Annie Mac, Jules, Herve, and Norman Cook, who describes Phonat as a guy who “f**ks with all the rules”.
Keep him on your radar for 2009, as Phonat continues on his journey to redefine electronic music.
This is what Trash Menagerie was throwing down during the month of September. Features, interviews, parties, and plenty’a mix and MP3 download. We’re snuggling in for the busy month of October. Have you started thinking about your Halloween costume yet? We’re looking for ideas, so please hit us up and let us know if you’ve got any. Last year we gave you a heads up on how to MAKE YOUR OWN DAFT PUNK COSTUME. Hipster Runoff offered up a bit of inspiration, “WTF SHOULD I B 4 ALL HALLOW’S EVE”, But is it “ok” to be a Justice this year, if you were a Daft last year?
A truly scary option, the United States Vice Presidential Republican
Candidate and current Governor of Alaska – Sarah Palin.
Hmm, I guess she didn’t get understand the memo regarding last year’s Halloween Party. It was a Nordic theme. Looks like she still won anyway, even though she didn’t really come close to qualifying.
Sarah Palin 7 Months Preggers “I can hide my belly in a sexy, yet sophisticated, little black business suit.”
Goodness, her belly is HUGE, she looks like she’s going to pop any day now, right?
This is what Demi Moore looked like when she was seven months preggers . . .

Sarah Palin’s Witch Doctor . . .
Other potential options – “Sarah Palin Mayor of Meth”, “Sarah Palin Miss Alaska”, “Sarah Palin Soccer Mom”. Wow, and to think, the election isn’t even over yet, we’ve still got a few weeks to go . . . goodness, i’m sure we’ll have so many more choices to choose from. Maybe i’ll pull off one of those “couple costumes,” and we can go together as “Foreign Palin Policy“. One of us will be Russia, and the other Alaska, and we’ll stand on opposite sides of the room and say “I can see ya over there, behave yourself!”
