Estevao Silva da Conceicao has spent 20 years making his own incredible Gaudiesque house, The Casa De Pedra, in a favela in Sao Paulo.
Not many people can say this:
"When I arrived in the Parc Guell, it's then that I thought that the work was very similar to my house. And I thought, wow, how could I have built something so like his work without ever seeing it."

I've just returned from a short trip to NYC. Thats a fun town.
On TV I saw a commercial for the Samsung Juke phone. It features a lame juke 'style' song thats a bit like a crap version of Watch My Feet and some guy doing an ipod dance. I found it mildy depressing.
Luckily later that day I picked up this cracking new cd packed full of fresh unmixed juke licks. So sweet. Just another incredible Benzi mix.
I see you DJ Benzi
Buy it here
Souljah Boy- Crank Dat (Juke Jams Remix)
Also I picked up the incredible new record by South Rakkas Crew which I sincerely urge you to buy here. Get some at Mad Decent.

I've just been getting into Mento music. Its generally brilliant from what i've heard by Dr.Auratheft. Lyrically it is hilarious and bizarre. Calypso comes from Trinidad but Mento is more like the bridge between Jamaican Folk and Rocksteady which became Reggae. But for some reason the bands still called themselves Calypsonians. The more I've listened to this stuff, the funnier it gets. I'm not kidding, it really sticks in your head.
Lots of the tunes are still used in dancehall like the much rinsed Bam Bam and Galang Gal by T.O.K; which you can hear cunningly spliced with Lord Composer's Mandeville Road on Wayne & Wax's Blogariddims mix.
Mento Madness has just been reissued and features loads of bangers all produced by a very talented bloke called Stanley Motta.
Lord Messan & His Calypsonians - Linstead Market
Mento is highly recommended listening if you've had a few drinks. Or even better here.
I like to think Che and Sandino inspired some pretty badass revolutionary music like Kortatu here rocking the hell out of Managua.
Who I think were pretty inspired by The Clash and their Sandinista! album.
Who also went on to make sick musically revolutionary Hip Hop joints with Futura 2000.
So thanks to Che and Sandino for indirectly giving us Hip Hop, Graffiti and Punk! Well..sort of.
Kortatu - Nicaragua Sandinista
The Clash - Washington Bullets
Futura 2000 ft. The Clash - The Escapades Of Futura 2000 Dub
