Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

The ME Indie Jukebox

As you may or may not know I am the host of a radio show in Dubai that manages to feature indie recording artists every Wednesday. This week it was my pleasure to have Big-Hass the Hip Hop blogger join me on the show. Hass is very enthusiastic and seems to have an endless amount […]
