Missy Elliot gets KL

17 May 2008, XLive Festival, Genting Highlands. While the crowd was waiting for Missy Elliot's show to start, Joe was actually having some one on one time with her!

Here's Joe handing Missy his KL caps of different sizes (just incase). He also gave the caps to her dancers too.
Missy and the boys - Joe Flizzow and The Stylustiks.
Do you recognise him? This is Amar from Kartel Records. He was working for YZ International that week, looking after Missy Elliot and her entourage. In the picture above, he's seen getting the cars ready to shuttle the dancers from the hotel to backstage. It was a pretty stressfull week for him but he still manages a smile for us. Well done Amar for doing a great job!

Mixology Launch, KL to Beirut Music Video

This is random but we thought we'd share.

DJ Fuzz's Mixology album launched last month, 24th April (Zouk Club) and was supported largely by the Hip Hop community. Read more about it here at Kevin Yeoh's blog. Apart from the album launch itself, the people in the club (if they caught on) might have noticed that there was an video shoot happening admist the partying like an all in one deal! The video was for Lebanese DJ Lethal Skillz' single called KL to Beirut track in which he collaborated with DJ Fuzz. The video was directed by Atomsk of Phuturephlow productions and features many cameos of Malaysian hip hop artists like Phlowtron, KLG Sqwad and if you're fast enough Joe Flizzow himself. Click here to watch the whole KL to Beirut video

Here's the "making of" of Joe's half a second cameo!:P

Nothing was planned, Joe got on the mic and took over Zouk's resident MC Fendi's job for a minute and the camera started rolling. (Atomsk in pink shirt) - Picture courtesy of Kevin Yeoh http//

One week later, its on You Tube!
Congratulations DJ Fuzz for Mixology 2!

Nice video Atomsk of Phuturphlow Productions. Check out the website to see more Malaysian hip hop videos.

Quiksilver Bali Open Pictures

Hey as promised, here are some some pictures taken by Joe's manager of the event in Bali last month. Joe Flizzow, Pop Shuvit and Stylustiks were invited to perform for Quiksilver's beach party held at the Hard Rock Hotel. This was to officiate the Quiksilver Open Keramas (30 Apr-6 May) competition. The show was on the 27th of April, unfortunately it rained that night so a lot of the crowd went for shelter during the performances but the guys had a pretty good time in Bali anyway!

Sound check Bali style!
"every sound check MUST be like this! Don't forget to insist on a swimming pool next to the stage..put it on my comfort rider yo!", says Joe to his manager Yaniz.

Some editing work before the show.
