BBC 1Xtra “OldSkool Hour” UK HipHop Special.


Friday morning arrived with a bang! Twin B and Yasmin Evans gave us a flawless hour of classic UK HipHop in the Friday morning “Oldskool Hour” on BBC 1Xtra.


My Friday morning started on around 3 hours sleep (don’t ask!) then was fuelled by copious amounts of coffee and the sheer will to get through a rather chaotic morning in London town. Just as I was starting to seriously question how I was going to get through my morning, life just gave me a perfect moment and a serious highlight to my Friday, Twin B and Yasmin Evans gave us a perfect “Old Skool Hour” of classic UK HipHop on the BBC 1Xtra breakfast show. A flawless who’s who of UK HipHop legends taking in: Akala, Black Twang, TY, Rodney P, Roots Manuva, Sway, Skinny Man, Mark B & Blade, Klashnekoff , Choong Family, Fallacy, Jehst and more. As far as classic UK HipHop selections go it doesn’t get much better. This soundtrack along with enough Starbucks coffee to wake up half of London seriously kick started my Friday and my weekend in style. Twin B, Yasmin Evans and team thank you for an epic “OldSkool Hour”.

Catch Twin B and Yasmin Evans waking up the nation weekday mornings from 7.00 am on BBC 1Xtra.

DJ Myme is a Turntablist, DJ Tutor, Party Rocker, Mix Cd DJ, Radio presenter, a life long music fan and all round positive guy. I was pretty much born and bred on music. Everything from Soul, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Pop you name it, it was on the stereo when I was growing up. I got into HipHop in 93/94 and the rest as they say is history! From a long haired skateboard kid growing up in Glastonbury, via Edinburgh for a few years. Now making moves in London for the last ten years and counting. My journey has been fuelled by music. I have been DJ'ing for the best part of ten years, starting of as a DMC battle DJ after smashing my way through the Scottish DMC finals, through to the London DMC finals. I turned my hand to mix cds, then radio, as well as tearing up dance floors from Edinburgh to London town then back again. Sharing the stage with everyone from Trevor Nelson to Cutmaster Swift along the way. I have passed my knowledge and skills on as a DJ tutor and I was the scratch DJ for Sky Sports, for their weekly football show "Premier League Preview". My blog here is to keep you up to date with the latest news from the urban world, reviews, write ups, features. As well as positive, mindful blogs, tell a friend to tell a friend. Beats, Rhymes and Life. Peace, Peace DJ Myme.
