At our club opening night three weeks before this show, as I was djing and playing the song "Dumb" by Awol One, this guy comes to me and asks me:
- Are you from the Bay?
- No, I replied
- Are you from here?
- That's my boy Awol One! I'm *****, also from the Shapeshifters.
Then he walked off and I never saw him again. Took us three weeks to find who he was 'cos I didn't catch his name that night. He was Matre of the English League and indeed the Shapeshifters, Los Angeles.
Listen to the show (from 29th of May) and find out what the F was he doing in Finland for such a long time. He was with his boy John McGregor. They threw a lot of knowledge at us and we were just blown! Matre also did some killer freestyles too, for real! Great guys those two!
Peace to Jalien & Alise for doing the detective work on Matre.
