Full Tilt Boogie – Part 1


Boom! This is the first instalment of Full Tilt Boogie! Mixtape series, a collaboration between @beatmasterwright and @funkferret.

An ongoing series of fist punching, foot kicking Kung Fu Ninja madness.

Combining only the finest in Funk, and HipHop jams, this mixtape took us way too long to get organised, with many hours of back and forth track organising, editing, working out keys and getting that perfect mix down tight.

So wind up that punch and charge that foot for some Kung Fu fighting action!

Ill Behaviour Hip-Hop Documentary – Off The Hook – Beats, Rhymes & Life


2015 is the 15 year anniversary of the legendary Off The Hook club night that took place monthly in Derby, UK.

Back in 2001 I made a documentary about the Hip Hop scene in the UK.

The film was shot at various club nights across the East Midlands, UK, but predominately at Off The Hook. This documentary shows the now legendary Hip Hop club night at it’s peak.

Featuring Ugly Duckling, Mr Thing, Rodney P & Skitz, Mark B & Blade, People Under The Stairs, DJ Noise, DJ Tang, Plus One and The Nextmen.

Filmed and edited by Ian Wright.

Also check out the Off The Hook – 15th Birthday Special podcast, thanks to Breakin Bread.
