Streetdance 3D DVD launch party

Earlier on in the day we announced we were going to live tweet and blog throughout the Streetdance 3D DVD launch party (at HMV Forum Kentish Town). We well managed to catch George Sampson, Akai and Flawless on the red carpet before the main event, so figured the sooner we get the videos out the better (and show other websites and news outlets we're serious!)

IF you want more then we'll be announcing updates and stories via the TooMuchFlavour Facebook Page - don't miss out, fan us now!

Step Up 3D parody - Schlep Up 3D!

Streetdance 3D was big in the UK, there's no denying that, although arguably not as big as Step Up 3D - how do I know this? Because nobody made a parody of it!

Except for this, which isn't a parody (the slideshow was knocked up for illustration), its actual promo

Readers, although not all the jokes hit their mark, I present to you a recent find on YouTube, courtesy of Electric Spoofaloo (I know, just like Electric Boogaloo!) a Step Up 3D parody: Schlep Up!

The Who Killed Deon campaign video

When you run a hip hop website there's always a stigma attached to what you do. When I first set out on my mission with TooMuchFlavour the intention was to focus on the positive aspects of hip hop because of the negativity surrounding it.

Then I started getting offers to attend screenings for films like Shank and other violent gritty Brit flicks.
I realised that although I wanted to run features on them, maybe I didn't want to because it depicted negativity, and promoting that might have an impact on future prospects for us (council partnerships, for example, might not allow swearing anywhere on a sponsored site).

The Who Killed Deon series is a campaign by the Metropolitan Police in association with Drop the Weapons to promote awareness of knife crime in cities.

In a whodunnit style the viewer has to watch the first video and is asked to guess who killed Deon at the party from a line of suspects in the related videos option.

Readers, we can be fussy about what aspects of hip hop we report on, but we can't change what the actual culture has become. Just because it isn't what we always report on, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

#NewMusicMonday - Ursula 1000 - Hey You featuring Fred Schneider download

Click here to download Ursula 1000 - Hey You with Fred Schneider (Shake edit)

Drenched in snarling fuzz guitars, savage drums and spooky organs, this new collection of tracks unleashes his technicolor take on this sound. A pinch of the old and a drop of the new, creating a brand new monster! Inspired by the classics like Count Five, The Sonics and the Nuggets and Back To The Grave collections to revivalists like The Gruesomes, Gravedigger V and The Dukes of Stratosphear, Ursula 1000 takes in this obsession and flips it for a new generation.

FUZZ features the inimitable Fred Schneider from The B-52s on the opening song, Hey You! Fred and his band paved the way of mixing b-movie surf trashiness and new wave as does Ursula with his blending vintage grooves with modern electronica, thus making the pairing a no-brainer. This is not pastiche but a re-invention!

Ursula 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ Alex Gimeno. His albums (four artists albums and two DJ mixed CDs) and live/radio mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk, electro, go go and sleazy glam rock. You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for AT&T, Samsung, Adidas and Grand Marnier.

You can find him traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his home residencies at Trophy Bar and The Commodore. For a more obscure selection of songs that make him tick, check out his radio show, Guilty Pleasures on

FUZZ is released October 5 (digital) / October 19 (physical) on ESL Music
