RO SHAM BO – 4/20 SHOW

Every Tuesday a combination of myself, Moriarty, Jimmy Sing and Spruce Lee host Ro Sham Bo Sunset, a radio show on FBi Radio in Sydney.

Last Tuesday, the 20th of April, I was left to the show on my lonesome and decided to dedicate almost the entire show to the herb most people celebrate with on 4/20 day.

A bunch of people have asked me to upload the show, particularly the last hour where I mixed nothing but weed classics, so here it is! Spark up!

Ro Sham Bo Sunset – 4/20 Show

This was recorded and broadcasted live from FBi, in the last 20 mins my buzz was totally harshed by hearing about the death of Guru. I played Take Two And Pass from Gang Starr’s Daily Operation as a tribute to both Guru and DA URB. Read the whole playlist after the jump!

SANDWICHFACE

Bianca started this great Sandwich blog where she takes a photo of all the sandwiches she eats. Since I make her an average of two sandwiches a week, there’s a few good rolls I made on the blog.

So far none have come close to this next level sandwich I made for us to eat today:

sandwichface:

Roast pork belly, sweet pickled cucumber, pickled bamboo shoot, red cabbage, rocket, coriander and mayonnaise on long white roll. Made by Levins.

Levins and Adam Bozzetto went back to Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre in Wagga Wagga to run two days of music workshops for Australian Youth Week 2010.

We recorded 2 songs while we were there which we’ll put up on the site very soon!

ANIMAL CROSSING

PIZZAS

Bianca bought me a pizza stone for Christmas, here are some of the pizzas I’ve cooked since then. Up top is a pepperoni, mushroom, basil and buffalo mozzarella pizza. The cool thing about the pizza stone is that it makes the base super crispy and thin.

Margherita

Margherita with goat’s cheese

Supreme pizza with a tonne of good shit on it

Truffled salami (best shit ever!) with pine mushrooms

Truffled salami, pine mushrooms and baby spinach

Up next: Tacos? Maybe!

BURGERS

Ok let’s get this food section started proper with some burgers…

Beef cheeseburgers with dill pickles, tomato, lettuce with a side of baked fries & pickled red cabbage. I made the buns too – they’re filled with chopped jalapenos and cheese! The recipe for the buns is below, they were really easy and super good.

I made these cheeseburgers at midnight…

And these were made a few nights later at 3am! The BBQ’d red onion rings on these burgers really set em off.

Teriyaki glazed salmon burger with cucumber, baby spinach and wasabi mayonnaise 

Fried fish burgers with coleslaw, coriander and hot sauce

Charcoal grilled Portuguese chicken burger

About Levins

Levins began DJing with his best pal Spruce Lee when the pair were just out of high school. Using belt drive turntables they found on the side of the road, Levins and Spruce would set up a sound system at their friends’ house parties each weekend and play records until the sun came up. Five years on from those humble beginnings, Levins still pretends he’s playing a house party every time he’s behind the decks of clubs all across Australia. 

A member of Sydney’s Ro Sham Bo, Levins was among the first DJs to play Baltimore Club, Baile Funk, Crunk and other exciting new genres from around the world in Australian clubs in 2005 and has since sought out new and fantastic global sounds to work into his sets. Levins also made a name for himself DJing for live acts Muscles, Catcall and, most recently, America’s Yo! Majesty.

Alongside DJ friends Diplo and Nina Las Vegas, Levins founded Heaps Decent, Australian sister label to Diplo’s Mad Decent label. Heaps Decent is an initiative that seeks out underprivileged youth in NSW and provides them with the resources to be musically creative. At these Heaps Decent workshops, Levins has worked closely with Diplo, M.I.A., Spank Rock, Sinden, Radioclit and more.

Running parties since he started DJing, Levins has been behind dozens of successful club nights including Ro Sham Bo, Wamp Wamp, hip hop night Halfway Crooks, indie dance crossover Bad Kids Recreation Club and reggae warehouse affair Passa Passa. Levins also maintains an online presence, posting on Diplo’s Mad Decent blog and his own website YoLevins.com.

In clubs and at festivals across Australia, USA and New Zealand, Levins has played a mix of as many genres as the crowd can handle, sharing the stage with a diverse crew of artists including Diplo, A-Trak, Girl Talk, The Gza, Spank Rock, Buraka Som Sistema, The Gossip, Ratatat and hundreds more.
