Crew, the blog has been noticeably left dusty the last few weeks. Chalk it up to world travelling (Recloose in the States, Booker in Oz) and a busy lifestyle. That said, it just ain't cool leaving you all hanging like this... with only our man Sam Harman's bad taste in jokes to keep you entertained (haaaaahaaaa).

Fret not, we're back and in full effect. Scroll down for the latest HIQI offering from Monday- lots of new tunes, world cup shit talk and of course the Monday night party vibes you've come to expect.

I'm off momentarily to Singapore to throw down with my good man and HIQI family member Dean Zhou aka The Funk Bast*rd. We'll be getting down tomorrow night at La Maison , its definitely on the short and sweet but very much looking forward to getting down with the crew. Check Funk Bast*rd's HIQI mix from 2009 here.

ALSO, be sure to tune in next week for my special 'Cosmic Car' mix to hip you to our new night here in Auckland kicking off next Friday at Be Club (all things Detroit). I'll be including lots of drops from my recent pilgrimage back to the D and plus heat picked up on the way. More info on this here.

Oh lord this is good

This blog has been gathering dust I'm afraid.

And it is my fault, scanning magazines is not as easy as I had assumed it would be, especially when you SUCK at photoshop.

So to keep this ticking over here some funny shit I found

Since Recloose has been flying around the USA rocking parties the show has been going out loud and live on Monday nights, but unfortunately the show logs have been hard to recover as the station has put in a new desk, should be back next week along with the capitan.

Hopefully we'll have tonights show soon too, Booker got some heat over in Melbourne, it was a gooder.

Oh and here's that funny shit
