"DJ Semtex on the road"
Tuesday 4th September 2007
The Mercury Music Awards
We were at the rehersals, and something didn't feel right. So we called in some friends......
The El Rascino's were in town, and we put them on. The normally play for Basement Jaxx, but not tonight.
I couldn't make it to the performance cos' of the tube strike, so I got my Cousin, El Semtexo to cover for me.
El Semtexo did his thing on stage - I doubt we'll ever see him again!
Dizz didnt get it this year, but he's got one of those awards anyway.
We had a wicked night, and it was a privilege to be at the Mercs.
Time to celebrate with Uncle Jack!

Semtex on set at the Dizzee Rascal 'Flex' video shoot.
Remember this shot from the Mercury Music Awards? This is nothing compared to what you're about to see.
This is an exclusive behind the scenes look at the video shoot for Flex.
Forget X-Factor. Today it’s all about Flex Factor. We've got our own judges, our own talent....
Dizzee, Mr Hudson, and Reggie Yates get ready for the first take.
Whilst the film crew set up, MTV Base were in the building. Footsie, D Double, and Jammer put in the work.
Everyone is on the grind these days. Mike Skinner passed through the set with his own film crew.
He interviewed me for his new program which starts on Channel 4 in November.
Some of the Contestants.....
Dynamo hits the set for his part. Forget Derrin Brown, this guy is the UK's hottest Magician.
The mighty Murkle man flew in for his part.
Rachel made an excellent judge.
Lets be real Sharon Osbourne isn't exactly an oil painting is she?
The judges are in place. Rachel Ritfeld, Reggie Yates, and......
Some of the contestants went on a rampage....
This video shoot was CRAZY!!!!!!! We had a lot of fun on the set.
