Austria International

MidSummer Fest in Finland is an invention of some suicidal people. When you wake up on sunday at 3 oclock, you can't help wondering why we do this for a human body. I had crazy fun tho.


Let's return to weekend before this : Thanks for Prodigyy and others for taking us to Austria. The trip was great. I thought we are going to Austria only but then we flew to Zurich and crossed border lines 4 times aday.

Pickup from airport, to hotel and lunch at Mike-the-promoters's-girlfriend's-sister's-hotel. Mike had an own danceschool, where we went visiting after eating!

Danceschool and Bboy Afro Killa, and an other nice guy whose name i dont remember now, teaching:

I love Switzerland and Austria, the nature is a bit like in Finland but with mountains!

Travelling day is always tiring, so we gotta relax, couple beers and Flow-Mo style freestyle rappin.

What would travelling be without Macs and myspace/facebook/ircgalleria?? focus has macbook there too don't miss it, hatsolo FORGET his at home :(. Rome is Apple hater.

On Saturday Flow-Mo , Officially Fresh, got ready to battle. I got fresh printed 'you know we got flow' green on orange t shirt with ben davis pants and fresh adidas windbreaker jackett, Hatsolo with that powershirt + t-shirt + headspin hat combination, with fat ass print, Wartecs made new Public Enemy style Flowmo Reppin shirt, Antopio rocked with that jacket, Rome Had Puma Matching suedes and shirt and Focus had trousers from suit and focus print t shirt. Shiiiiiiit.

Focus had a workshop there, good stuff, as always

Rome1, Wartecs, Focus and Antopio entered Toprock 7 to smoke and they all got thru eliminations. Focus won that shiieet.

In crew battles, we came second.

Toprock 7 to Smoke Pt1... find part2 there in tube

Event was good, there wasnt too much crowd tho, but I enjoyed. Quite many bgirls too. Dj Cosmic was spinnin.
After event we went to hotel, took shower and went to afterparty and so on.

We have brand new logo, designed by wartecs. It's called 'FM Reps'. Idea to that logo came (unofficially) from the situations below:

Unfortunately I fell asleep at 6 AM unlike i planned to. I wanted to hang with Hattuna and Desto. Next day Mike told us he saw them outside in the parkin lot lying on the concrete or leaning to the fence at 9 AM. Gettin tan. They still had like 8 beers left when i passed out. thats my boys, im sad I didnt capture that golden moment with my precious digital camera.

Rome with them hangover shades six hours later.

We even visited germany on sunday, there we saw lots of awesome boobs there, in Finnish we say HIMMEITÄ KELLOJA!!!!

Umm.. Ok. That's about that trip.

Mike took us to Airport on Sunday morning

It was dope ass trip even tho we didnt get that winning loot :)! thanks for everybody for that hospitality and care!

Payback Info!

Whats good world?

After travelling to Austria I've been busy on organizing Payback Event, now we have confirmed judges and posters are gone into printing! So the event is on a good roll in fact! info:

Payback event in Jyväskylä is on 18.-19.7.

On Friday there will be Beatstreet club (K18) as a warmup party at Rentukka Restaurant. At the moment disc spinners are Dj Woo-Dee from Slovenia and me. I can't wait to announce what's in the menu of the night. Live shows & battles of breaking, poppin, hiphop etc! Rentukka is located at Jyväskylä's suburb, Kortepohja, It is very easy to go there by bus number 18 from centrum. By walking it's like 20 minutes. This aint the typical club you have in every corner. Most of our parents in Jyväskylä has spent their youth in this particular bar. You can get discount of beer with a student card. You can buy pizza there.

The Main event is on saturday. It is at Aalto-Sali, in the very center of the town. There are 2vs2 'take it personal' bboy battle and crew vs crew hiphop battle.

2 vs 2 Breaking contest is judged by our international guest Xisco (Def Dogz, Holland), great Bboy Steps from Helsinki and by a local bboy named Freakwency from Rancid Rockers.

In hiphop battles the crews do a showcase and by that they will be ranked to battle pairs.
Judges on HipHop Crews are Eva from Denmark, Lasa from Oulu (Natural Hype, Sonic Skool) and Virpi Kurki representing Helsinki. Djs on the event are Woo-Dee, I-Spin (jkl), Tiskijoni (jkl) and me.

After the Main event there's is afterparty at legendary Blaze2b restaurant. Beer is 2 euros and entrance free with the day ticket, which is 6 euros btw. There's no doubt that shit won't be blazing!

Some of our judges will have workshops during the weekend, including Eva! More info TBA, stay tuned!!

We will have 300 posters, happily I dont have to stick all of them. www.culturalyouth.com more info coming.

It's about that time that I think I'll tell you about our travel to Austria International on next post, maybe already tomorrow!

A Sneak preview of the hangover some of us had in Austria...

good nights!

Pics - Juste Debout Finland

Tomorrow we are going to Austria for a crew battle with Flow-Mo. IT*S BATTLE TIME!! I hope it will be nice trip, we fly to zurich with finnair (some people collect records but I prefer flying points even tho I'm dj)

Last weekend was ill. Actually the whole week was crazy.
We playd with fire a bit.. my sailing boat was about to blow up when we had fun with spirit-stove. Then we had a little campfire in the woods in purpose to grill sausages on saturday night:

Another morning after parties...

The very same morning a few hours later, drinking wine and brandy & getting tan at 8 AM with my Jyväskylä hefes.. notice Jani (also without shirt) from from classic Midpoint rockers crew / veteran Flow-Mo member.

So here are some Juste Debout Finland 2008 pictures. It's hard to take pictures at same time when you DJ but i got a few. Some of these are taken by Anssi K with my camera.

I put here only couple, I got couple more at http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/b54cecbb83aabe5059f906c8fce3e282/

For some reason every second picture is an extra blank picture in the gallery, so please just skip every second without further thinking.

Pics'n'isht - Hip 'Op Session 2008 Nantes/France

Hip 'Op Session 2008, Nantes, France

MORE PICS on my gallery site from Hip 'Op Session.. http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/6b84164f4d4df3003fa21b8a2008b53f/

We felt happy to go to Hip 'Op Session again, it was third time for Flow-Mo now. This event has always been a pleasure and there are several reasons for this: Firstly, the town of Nantes is spectacular. There is wonderful castle near the venue and beyond that there's nice old town and it's always full summer in Nantes already in April. Secondly, we can travel with almost the whole crew with us. Third reason is preparty, good battles, the crowd, afterparty and a possibility to lose to an american crew, which we usually take. Last reason is good care by staff, nice atmosphere with everybody, meeting friends, promoters keeping their promises, chance to be very wasted after afterparty and breakfast before sleeping at six A.M.

We had some lovely time with Amjad...

Kid Cash and Ader 7 Deez taking a walk

Wartecs, King of the Castle (I have a chair)

You didn't believe it? Deep inside Wartecs and Rome they got soft spot for puppies! FM Love.

After walkin in town we ate properly, got some sleep and prepared for the battles.. I was really looking forward to battle, since our last crew battle was in Total Session like 7 months ago. We had nice time in cyphers.. just before the battles my wrist got hurt, of course I battled anyways which caused that it came injured for like 3-4 weeks then. On the first round we battled against our US buddies, Massive Monkees. Battle was quite even and judges gave it to them. I wasn't too happy on my sets but especially hatsolo was giving his everything! On the whole weekend from cyphers, I remember that Pervertz was rocking lots of dope runs and so were flow-mo and rest of 7$ too. Laos had crazy nice stuff on preparty. I saw AllTheMost, Sam, Tells was real nasty on cyphers. I wanted to see more wicket than i did, only one judge showcase, i heard the second was insane!! Anyways respect to him. I propably saw lotsa others too but I have reeeall short memory.

Yeah, the Afterparty was great again.. we bought couple bottles of sparkling wine which costed 1 euro each, big smirnoff bottles, and some Heineken. Sparkling wine wasn't too tasty haha. Happily at some point we realized that Hat-tuna had couple rum bottles in hotel room and i had 2 litres of Cocacola so we went to blend some. Hatsolo sneaked lots of beer from afterparty with his coin trick.. drunken style, Best kept secret!! I even had my moments in cypher doing some wacking and locking (I meant not to be disrespectful at all towards this one locker who was actually quite good, but i just had to go and try.. sorry)

After Afterparty After Breakfast 7 A.M., beautiful! Me and Hatsolo aka Hat-tuna

These ones here are some Martha Cooper shit!! Am I Pro or what?! Shots are from sunday aka The Hang Over Day.
