Many Happy Returns to SIR STYLES from HOTASBALLS

Many Happy Returns go out to SIR STYLES from HOTASBALLS, as today is his born-day…

HOTASBALLS arent known for their baking prowess, but if we were, this little number is how we’d celebrate at hotasballs, maybe…

This shot is from the Maripol book of Polaroids, the cake was made for Grandmixer DST, a long long time ago…

Just Blaze vs The Alchemist – The LONDON Sound-Clash [extra date added]

If youve already sorted yer entry to the first session on Thurs 6th May, you have the right to feel slightly smug

If you aint already sorted it, you have a life-line, get involved people, this will be a roadblock


Nepotism is a terrible thing to waste…

white boy day pt 4080

roth off the top.in a london hotel room…i think he’s getting better.

the album was so-so, but he definately has the raw talent to make better records.

“Friday night, spend money on a”………

Actually, youd have to spend money on very little this Friday night if gratis hooch, good craic, weekend sunshine in the city and throwback Rap is your bag, but you can keep the themes of the old school ringin round yer ears, if you wish…

Two London sessions tomorrow night, one from the awfully generous folk at Crooked Tongues and sister site Spine Magazine at Slam City Skates in Covent Garden and the second in the East Ends Brick Lane from FatLace familia Danny-Boy Greenpeace and the Love Spreader himself, OG Spread Love crew DJ James ‘LBNS’ Lebens….

Grab a free vinyl blend mix from the Take It Back boys here. The mix is a doozy but aint up for long. Its a straight up and down 45 min blend with quality tracks from the deepest crates, feat Doug E Fresh, Jazzy Jay, BDK, Low Profile, Lyte, Finesse, Nice & Smooth, Masters of Ceremony, Phase N’ Rhythm, Stet and more… All vinyl, all goodness

Something for the weekend ?

London clubbing action this weekend, Khalil will be playing anything by Dilla, Kish the Mish will be playing Mobb bangers, Johnny Dett will be playing any Big L that’s handy and the Work It ladies will of course be looking as resplendent as ever and reminding you that you dont know any of the girls names at the end of She’s Got that Vibe.

For more details…. meet at the Texaco garage near the roundabout just passed the North Circular, not really

Remember to erm, Dress to Impress ?!

End of the night, back of the shop action !!


you know we love some o’ that ol’ gangster shit, here at hotasballs…well, two sisters, who you may know, if you saw guy ritchies’s snatch, the collins girls, have put together a documentary called “the end”…here’s some of the blurb:

The End is a story never before told, of a group of men with a common bond. All born in the East End of London into povertystriving for a better life and all found that life in crime.

Unashamed and unapologetic, these men live their lives defined by a code of honor.

shows tonight, as part of some east end film fest thing in mile end.

looks legit.
